General Overview

Daytime Yellow Glow Paint is a durable, long lasting, solvent-based acrylic phosphorescent paint that has both a vibrant fluorescent pure yellow color in a lit room and a green-yellow glow in a darkened room. 

Please note:  Daytime colors are named after their color in a lit room, not their glow color.

Brightness and Duration

Although not as bright as our Ultra line, our Daytime Yellow is fairly bright in both daytime and in the dark.  It continues to glow for about 3 hours from a full charge.

Daytime Color, Opacity, Transparency, and Translucence

The Daytime line of products are opaque when in a lit room and glow brightly after a charge in a dark room.  This means they will be easily seen during the day and will most likely cover any paint or color underneath them.  For a more translucent color in a lit room, consider our "Ultra" series.

Chemical Makeup

The raw glow pigment is: Alkaline Rare Earth Metal Silicate-Aluminate Oxide Europium Doped with a Fluorescent Yellow Color Dye

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.


Solvent-based paints are considered a Flammable Material by the US Department of Transportation.  Therefore, there are strict guidelines for shipping that depend on quantity.

1.  Special packaging is required and will be added to your shipping total.

2.  We can not ship paint internationally without costly hazmat packaging and procedures.

3.  Quantities up to 1 fluid ounce can be be shipped via air or ground.

4.  Quantities between 1 fluid ounce and 1 quart must be sent via ground.

5.  Quantities above 1 quart must be sent via freight.

6.  Purchases of a gallon are sent as 4 separate quart packages.
