How To Use Glow In The Dark Powder?
We want there to be no limits to what you can do with phosphorescent powder. That’s why we offer particle sizes ranging from 15 microns which is fine up to 500 microns in diameter. For the ultimate performance and strength, we recommend the ultra glow series. A quality photoluminescent pigment that is free of formaldehyde and ECO friendly. The standard powder line is anything, but ordinary. Both Ultra and standard pigment consist mostly of europium and dysprosium doped strontium aluminate. These have glow times up to 50 times longer than conventional powder. The specialty glow series contains a variety of rare pigments. Use the product filter to refine your search. Materials are non-toxic, non-radioactive, and contain no phosphorus, lead, or any other hazardous chemicals.
Mix glow pigment with clear or transparent mediums such as resin, epoxy, paint, plastic, glass, ink, nail polish, clay, rubber, cement, silicone, glue, powder coating, spray paint, or road paint. We recommend mix ratios between 15% to 33% powder. One kilogram (2.2 lbs.) of powder is perfect to mix with 1 gallon of clear medium such as wall paint. For resin and epoxy, the 20% ratio works well. The pigment will settle in resin to the bottom leaving you with a nice clear top that can be sanded and buffed to your liking. Most clear resins will not block much of any light. Multiple layers or a higher ratio of powder will result in a brighter and more solid glow. Too low of a ratio of powder can cause an uneven and spotty glow. Use plastic, ceramic, or glass mixing containers and utensils.
