Welcome the new standard for luminescent glow standards.

How does it work?
Glow-On captures light and then it releases it in the form of glow, a process which will last several hours and can be repeated infinitely for the active life of the product, about 15 years.

Charge Glow-On in a couple of seconds with the help of daylight or an LED lamp.
The initial glow is extreme, much brighter than Tritium glow, then it dims slowly, after several hours the glow can only be perceived if your eyes are adapted to the dark.
To rekindle the glow, just expose again to LED lamp for a couple of seconds .
 Check the charts below for more info on glow decay.

How does Glow-On compare to others

Glow-On is opaque,  there is no need to paint a white background to cover dark surfaces. 

On this picture to the right Glow-On is the first one, from left to right.

The exclusive polymer binder dries to a solid state, itwill stand high impact and pressure.
Glow-On also has great tolerance to high temperatures as well as low temperatures.

Other products are basically transparent gel with the consistency of a gummy bear.

Other products never really harden, they will easily fall off.

Great adherence to most surfaces.

Glow-On will stick to most surfaces as long as they are free of oil residue. 

Before the application clean oil and gunk residue with alcohol. Don't use solvent based cleaners which might leave an oily film.

On this photo, Glow-On was used to adhere a 5 pound weighed disk to a piece of simple link chain.  

It was allowed it to cure for a few days. it still hangs from a wall! 

Glow-On dries to the touch in a couple of hours and it continues to cure for a few days, until it becomes as hard as synthetic concrete.


For how long will it glow after full exposure?

Full charge takes few seconds with a small LED flashlight. In daylight, it charges in an instant.

The product will glow for hours, initially the glow is very bright even in the presence of light, when the glow levels fall under that level it can be seen only in darkness and as long as the users eyes have adapted to the dark, which happens after thirty minutes in the dark.
At low levels of intensity the glow will not be appreciated in the presence of light, however dim that might be.
Please check the charts below for more information.

A few tips for the use of this product:

What is this "Night Vision"?
Night vision is the natural adaptation of the human vision which allows us to "see" in the dark. 

It usually kicks in after 30 minutes in a dark environment.
How does night vision help?:

The glow on this product is very bright for the first fifteen minutes, brighter than tritium, the intensity dims down after awhile and at a slow pace.
When the intensity falls under the luminance level of light in the room, then it only can be seen in complete darkness.
Then our human vision also adapts to this darkness and we can "see" in the dark.
The vision, at this point works a bit different, focusing on the peripheral vision because the cells at the center of vision are "burned' by daylight. 

At this level, color cannot be appreciated so regardless of the product, what we see is a whitish glow.

To help  your eyes, focus your vision slightly to one side from the glow. Since the center of vision losses sensitivity with years of use, the correct way to "see in the dark" is to use your peripheral vision.

Complete decay happens @1800 minutes approximately, the human perception range is between 5 and 10 hours, depending on the individual and conditions.
