General Overview

Ultra Blue Glow Paint is a durable, long lasting, solvent-based acrylic phosphorescent paint that has a bright, unique blue glow.

Brightness and Duration

Ultra Blue Glow in the Dark Paint, although not as bright as its Green counterpart, is still an extremely bright glow in the dark paint.  It is 5 times brighter than the popular green zinc-based glow in the dark products available in most department stores.  Technically, it will continue to glow for days.  But us humans can see it for about 12 hours after a full charge.  Each gallon contains two pounds of the brightest blue glow in the dark pigment available.

Color

Ultra Blue Glow Paint actually glows blue with a green tint.

Daytime Color, Opacity, Transparency, and Translucence

The Ultra line of products are translucent when in a lit room and glow brightly after a charge in a dark room.  This means they are almost unnoticeable during the day when painted thinly and consistently.  Since the paint does have a slight white tint, it is even more unnoticeable on light or white surfaces.  Thicker applications or those on a dark background will still be translucent, but more noticeable.  There is no such product as a "daytime transparent" glow paint as you may have seen advertised.  But the Ultra and our other lines marked "almost clear" are relatively close to transparent when used properly.  For a more opaque color in a lit room, consider our "Daytime" series.

Chemical Makeup

The raw glow pigment is: Alkaline Rare Earth Metal Silicate-Aluminate Oxide Europium Doped

Paint Properties

Glow Inc.'s brand of glow in the dark paint is a custom formula designed to maximize brightness in a durable all-purpose paint.  The engineers included a suspension system that supports the relative dense glow in the dark particles.  It contains no fillers or impurities such as ultraviolet filters, which interfere with glow pigment.  As a solvent-based acrylic, it is extremely durable for indoor and outdoor use and has strong adhesion to almost all surfaces.  Drying time is between 10-15 minutes, but should be allowed to cure overnight.

Our paints are created by mixing the raw pigment (glow powder) with the custom designed paint in a ratio of 2 lbs of glow in the dark pigment to 1 gallon of paint.  This high ratio along with the high clarity medium results in the brightest glow in the dark paint sold on the planet.
