Our luminous powders
With us you get the best luminescent pigments you can find on the market. Our offered professional luminescent materials/pigments are based on strontium aluminate and are characterized by an immensely higher and longer luminosity compared to the known, older luminescent powders (based on zinc sulfide). At the same time, our powders are absolutely non-toxic and free of questionable chemicals.
And: We only offer luminous powders that are tested and evaluated by us for the best possible luminosity (continuously).
There are hardly any limits to the areas of application: The luminous pigments are ideal as a base material for any creative activities such as painting, building, decorating, crafting and much more. Also interesting in the processing industry such as painters, varnishers, typesetters or (screen) printers.
Other possible uses include painted-on glowing stars in a child's room, noctilucent house numbers, escape route markings, fancy fingernails (glowing nail polish), jewelry, candles and much, much more.
Sizes and luminous period
- Yellow-green | Size: approx. 75µm | Luminous period >10h
- Blue-green | Size: approx. 85 µm | Luminous period >10h
- Blue | Size: approx. 50 µm | Luminous period >10h
- Purple/Purple | Size: approx. 70 µm | Luminous period >approx. 3h
Recommendation for use
The luminescent pigments are best mixed with colorless carrier fluids or binders (e.g. epoxy resin/resin, varnish, gel or wax). For interior use, solvent-free carrier fluids such as clear varnish or wallpaper paste are recommended. For exterior use, it is best to use weather-resistant and, if necessary, solvent-based binders such as synthetic resin paints.
Tip: Our offered pigments are very small, but the heavier/thicker the carrier, the less the pigments will settle.
We recommend a ratio of 1:2, i.e. 1 part pigment to 2 parts binder/carrier agent (i.e. approx. one third pigment/powder). The darker the carrier, the higher the proportion of pigment must be.
- Is the powder safe?
Yes. The pigments are absolutely non-toxic and free from hazardous chemicals or radioactive substances. According to DIN ... the material could even be used for children's toys.
- Why shouldn't I just buy cheaper powder?
Do not buy luminescent powders whose luminous duration will disappoint you. Based on so-called "strontium aluminates", our pigments are far superior to conventional and well-known phosphorescent materials in luminosity and luminous duration.
- Usage in color possible?
Yes, since the pigments are quite heavy and would settle, you need a correspondingly "thick" carrier liquid. We therefore recommend thickening thin paints before use or using another heavy carrier, such as clear varnish (or clear liquid plastic or clear casting resin). For painting and decorating, it is best to use acrylic paints, transparent or at least as light as possible, so that the glow is not darkened too much by the paint.
- Is the puver rechargeable?
Yes, the powder can be recharged at any time and by any type of light (e.g. sun, flashlight, etc.). We recommend sunlight, because the pigments are charged the fastest and strongest by UV radiation. The material has a durability of at least 15 years.
- How fine/coarse is the powder?
Depending on the information in the article description. With a particle size of our offered pigments in a range of approx. 55 to 75 micrometers (= under 0.008 mm), this is comparable to the diameter of human hair.
Luminous pigment to substrate ratio calculation
- Choice of your base material
- Quantity of base material
- Selection of the desired admixture
Result: You need … gramms Luminous pigments for mixing into …
Note: Depending on the application, the ideal admixture may vary. For surface application, a slightly higher admixture should always be used. For filling applications, an economical admixture may be sufficient. We recommend always testing in advance on a smaller scale.
