Shelf Life and Lifespan
How long will my paint job last?
When applied, the glow in the dark paint can recharge millions of
times. Like any paint, lifespan depends heavily on the environment.
You can greatly increase the lifespan of a paint job by applying a proper
sealer and keeping the surface clean. In most cases, the lifespan
will be determined by the sealer coat. If a proper sealer coat is
chosen, we suspect that the paint would easily last 10 years outdoors in
Users of the older Zinc based products often reported fading caused by
direct sunlight. To date, we have not yet had any reports of this
Life of unopened or sealed paint
If the glow in the dark paint is maintained in a sealed container, it
should remain stable and usable for at least 2 years without any
performance degradation. We expect that it lasts a lot longer, but
we have not done research past this 2 year mark.
The important point is to seal the container whenever possible to
protect from air and humidity.
Powder Shelf Life and Lifespan
In a sealed container, the powder should last a very long time.
If kept properly sealed and in a dark area, you should expect less than 5%
glow degradation over 10 years.
The most important thing is to keep it far away from moisture and
dampness. If you plan on long term storage, consider using
disposable desiccant bags in the sealed container.
For the most part, without any special handling the powder will last
longer than most people tend to store it.
Powder will have similar properties when molded into plastic or other
