Ultra Green V10 (55-85m) Glow in the Dark Powder is the brightest glow in the
dark pigment readily available in the world. Furthermore, it is far
brighter than similarly named products available on the Internet and 30 times
brighter than the zinc sulfide products often sold in retail stores.
For the majority of manufacturing needs, V10 55-85m is the optimum choice.
For the rare occasion where V10 is not appropriate, we offer a variety of
high-end products to meet your requirements.
Brightness and Duration
For retail products, brightness is essential. V10 55-85m has a
brightness rating of approximately 33,000 immediately after charge,
945 at 10 minutes, and 126 at 60 minutes.
It continues to be visible by the human eye more than 24 hours
after the initial charge.
Two separate factors determine strontium aluminate pigment's brightness
level. The first factor is grade and the second factor is particle size.
For green, there are 7 grades of strontium aluminate phosphorescent material
determined by chemical purity and bonding effectiveness. The vast majority
of strontium aluminate pigment manufactured is grade 3-5. V10 is grade 0,
which is literally the highest grade available. It is rare to
find grade 0 pigment outside of Glow Inc.
The second factor is particle size. Within a grade, a large particle
size is brighter. As such, you ideally want to use the largest particles
that meet your needs. If particle size is a concern, we suggest that you
acquire the Green Powder Sample Pack.

almost all non-water based mediums, such as wax, oil, plastic, glass, rubber,
clay, alcohols, and solvents.
It also compatible with water-based mediums where the water content is
absorbed fully by the other components. For mediums with high water loads
or acids, we offer a coated version of the V10 pigments. However, we
strongly suggest that you first try the non-coated version.
