Mixing Instructions

We recommend mixing ratios between 15% and 33% glow powder. In general, ratios with more than 33% powder to the mix don’t achieve a more drastically bright glow to justify the cost of more glow powder.

20% = 1:5 = 1 ounce powder to 5 fluid ounces clear medium
25% = 1:4 = 1 ounce powder to 4 fluid ounces clear medium
33% = 1:3 = 30 grams powder to 90 milliliters clear medium

1 Kilogram of powder is perfect for mixing with 1 gallon of clear-drying wall paint. For resin and epoxy, the 20% ratio works well. The pigment will settle 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.

Generally, the higher the ratio of glow-in-the-dark powder to the medium, the brighter the glow and potentially a longer, more solid glow. It is also true for multiple layers when possible. Use plastic, ceramic, or glass mixing containers and utensils.

Testing various ratios is recommended for commercial and manufacturing purposes.

Powder Types & Attributes

Glow Color

The most difficult thing about glow powders is that they not all glow the same. Every color and micron size have its unique glow time and brightness. Green. aqua and blue are the strongest colors with purple and red being the hardest colors to satisfy some. Each powder description and specifications tab will explain the glow time.

Techno Glow also create custom colors for businesses small and large. Contact us for more information.

Natural Invisible

Natural glow powders are also called invisible by some. It is usually light of color or an off-white in normal daylight. It glows either green, aqua, blue, purple or white in the dark. If mixed at a low ratio it can appear invisible in transparent products. These glow longer and brighter than fluorescent glow powders that are tinted for a colorful look in daylight. Shop natural glow powders.

Daytime Fluorescent

Fluorescent daytime colors derived from natural glow powders that are tinted for a colorful look in daylight. Because these are tinted it does not glow as bright and as long as its natural powder counterpart. Shop daytime fluorescent powders.

Strontium Aluminate

Europium and dysprosium doped strontium aluminate is the latest generation of glow powders, It glow longer and brighter than previous types of glow powder such as the zinc sulfide. The most widely used glow powder today. Shop strontium aluminate glow powders.

Yttrium Oxide

Invisible red and orange glow powders that are white in daylight and glows a unique orange and firehouse red in the dark and under a uv black light. Shop yttrium oxide glow and uv powder.

Zinc Sulfide

The first generation of glow powders. Quick charge and short glow. The only kind that is FDA approved for limited cosmetic and novelty use. Shop zinc sulfide glow powder.

Calcium Sulfide

The deepest red glow in the dark powder available. But before you get to excited be aware, this powder is called the stinky red for a very good reason. Due to its chemical composition it has a very strong sulfur odor; that of rotten eggs! It charges quickly and the short glow is definitley worth the experience. Shop red calcium oxide glow in the dark powder.


Not-encapsulated glow powder is resistant to most strong solvents and glows a little brighter than its waterproof counterpart. Best choice for resin and epoxies, solvent based mediums or any medium that will encpasulate the piment from absorbing water over time. If exposed to water for more than a couple days it might absorb the moisture, crystalize and become damaged. This is rarely the case though. If mixed with high water content mediums, only mix enough for what can be used within hours. Once mixed and dried with a water base it should then be fine to use indoors or outdoors depending on the type medium you use. Shop not-encapsulated glow powder.


Waterproof powders should only be used in mediums that contain a high level of water or when there is a concern of water reaching the glow particles over time. The waterproof series is coated with a silica layer making it ideal for exposing to water. It is also used by paint companies for making acrylic glow paints that will be stored in liquid form. Available in micron sizes of 35, 50 and 85. Shop waterproof glow in the dark powder.



Glow powder and paint are often used in theme park design to create a unique and immersive experience for visitors. The materials are typically made from photoluminescent pigments that absorb light during the day and emit it at night, creating a glowing effect. This can be used to create a range of effects, from subtle accents to dramatic visual displays.

In the case of Pandora at Disney, Techno Glow worked closely with the Disney team to come up with ideas for incorporating glow powder and paint into the park design. This involved consulting with the designers and engineers to understand the overall vision for the park and how the glow materials could be used to enhance the visitor experience. The process of working with the Disney team involved multiple stages, from initial concept development to testing and final installation. The end result, however, is a truly unique and captivating experience that visitors are sure to remember for years to come.
