As a Grade 0 phosphorescent pigment, this is the brightest glow in the dark powder readily available.
Glow in the dark powder absorbs bright light as energy. When placed in the dark, the glow powder releases this energy as a glow. You can repeat this cycle millions of times. Used properly, the powder will only lose 5% of its brightness every 10 years. Any light will charge the powder. However, direct sunlight, high wattage bulbs, or black lights are needed to obtain the maximum glow.
Standard glow powder dissolves in water, resulting in a loss of its glow properties. Coated glow powders are treated with a sealant to prevent them from dissolving and gives them some additional chemical resistance. The powders do not work in most paints. If you need a standard paint, then we highly suggest that you choose Glow Inc.'s waterbased glow in the dark paints instead of the glow powder.
Typical maximum ratio is 2 pounds of glow powder to 1 gallon of medium. Keep in mind that each color has a different brightness and glow duration.

The powders are available in several different particle sizes, identified in microns. Within a grade, larger particles are brighter. Larger particles, ideal for brush and roller painting, offer a rough texture and a somewhate peppered appearance. Smaller particles give a much smoother appearance and flow easier through nozzles and jets.
