Instructions for Glow in the Dark Powder

Mixing Guidelines | Applications | Next Page > MSDS

Glow in the dark powder can be used in many applications, mixed with about any medium, preferably a clear or transparent. Create the ultimate glow at home, work or school.

Mixing Ratios & Guidelines

We recommend mix ratios between 15% to 33% powder to paint. In general, ratios with more than 33% powder to the mix don’t gain enough brighter glow to justify the cost of more glow powder. Examples:

20% = 1:5 = 1 oz. Powder to 5 oz. Medium
25% = 1:4 = 1 oz. Powder to 4 oz. Medium
33% = 1:3 = 1 oz. Powder to 3 oz. Medium
33% = 1:3 = 42 oz. Powder to 1 gallon (128 fl. oz.) Medium

Generally, the higher the ratio of glow in the dark powder to medium, the brighter the glow and potentially a longer glow. Testing different ratio's are recommended for commercial and manufacturing purposes. Multiple layers always enhance the glow. If possible, we suggest using plastic, ceramic, or glass mixing containers and utensils. 

For resin and epoxy the 20% ratio works well. Pigment will settle to the bottom leaving you with a nice clear top that can be sanded and buffed to your liking.
