Phosphorescent, small pigmentation for special applications

Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of light and darkness with our high-quality, phosphorescent pigments in the 5-15 µm particle range.

This innovative powder segment serves special application areas with very fine pigmentation, making it an ideal choice for screen printing, airbrushing, clock hand paint, watercolour and 3D DLP/SLA printing.

(1) Screen printing

Our photoluminescent pigments with a particle size in the range of 5-15 µm are perfect for screen printing. Whether you want to design T-shirts, posters or other printed products, our pigments offer excellent adhesion and ensure bright and long-lasting results. The fine particle size makes it easy to create detailed designs and vibrant colours. Make your designs glow in the dark and impress your customers with vibrant, luminescent patterns.

Technical information

The mesh size [in µm / micrometres] is the distance between two neighbouring warp or weft threads and limits the printable pigment size. This should (generously calculated) be one fifth or 20 % of the mesh opening.

Examples

  • Screen printing mesh 32T > Mesh size 245 µm > Possible pigment size: ~ 49 µm
  • Screen printing mesh 55T > Mesh size 100 µm > Possible pigment size: ~ 20 µm
  • Screen printing mesh 80T > Mesh size 78 µm > Possible pigment size: ~ 16 µm
  • Screen printing mesh 100T > Mesh size 58 µm > Possible pigment size: ~ 12 µm

We therefore recommend the use of our special pigments for screen printing mesh types 32T to 80T.

(2) Airbrush

Creative airbrush artists will love our photoluminescent pigments. The fine particle size allows for precise spray patterns and even distribution of pigments on your canvas or project. Create stunning artwork that comes to life in the dark. Our pigments are easy to mix and offer a long-lasting glow to keep your artwork mesmerising for hours.

(3) Clock hand colour

When it comes to clock hand colours, precision is key. Our photoluminescent pigments with their exact particle size allow for easy and accurate application on clock hands. Their luminosity and durability ensure that watch hands remain easy to read even in the dark. Give your watches a unique and luminous look that shows the time in style. 

(4) Watercolour

Watercolour painting is an art form that thrives on transparency and the play of light. Our photoluminescent pigments add a new dimension to this art form. The fine particle size allows for subtle effects and smooth transitions, while the afterglow properties create a magical highlight in your watercolour paintings. Light up your landscapes, portraits and abstract works and capture the magic of the night in your paintings.

(5) 3D printing / DLP / SLA

Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology requires high-precision pigments to achieve high-quality projections. Our photoluminescent pigments fulfil these requirements with their fine particle size and long-lasting luminosity. Whether you are creating 3D prints, prototypes or visual effects, our pigments ensure impressive results that come alive in the dark.

Discover the endless possibilities with our photoluminescent pigments. Whether you are an artist, a craftsman or a technology fan, our high-quality pigments will make your projects shine. Experience the magic of light and dark and let your creativity run wild.

Vielen Dank für das Stellen einer Frage. Wir werden versuchen, diese schnellstmöglichst zu beantworten.
How do I apply the pigments to the skin?

As a first step, perform a skin compatibility test on a 1 cm x 1 cm small spot on the arm, as everyone reacts differently to foreign substances. If no allergic reaction occurs, you can decorate your body without hesitation. To do this, mix the glow powders with special skin glue or adhesive fat cream.

An exception in the composition is the color pigment orange, because this is calcium sulfide, which is irritating according to the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances.

How often can the powder be used?

The powders can be used over and over again for at least 15 years without losing their luminous properties.

What is the best way to charge the pigments?

The phosphorescent professional color pigments store natural light and emit it again in darkness in a clearly visible way. Daylight, especially direct sunlight, is perfectly sufficient to stimulate the long-lasting luminosity of the colors. Electrically generated UV light (black light) can of course also be used for activation.

Depending on the product, charging via artificial light (light bulbs for room lighting and LED) is additionally possible (especially for blue-green and green).

How fine is the grain size?

The particle sizes of our premium annealing powders are 65-85 µm. This makes them ideal for incorporation into liquid binders. If you do not mix in our pigments but use them directly in the form of granules or as decorative pebbles, we recommend that you purchase our annealing granules.

What are the areas of application?

The premium afterglow powders are ideal for use in hobbies, DIY, gardening, handicrafts, for beautifying walls and pictures - without having to rely on black light. Also in the safety area, e.g. for luminous signs, escape routes, bicycle helmets, etc., you can achieve the desired lasting luminous effect with the pigments.

What can you mix the pigments with?

Phosphorescent pigments are mixed with a carrier substance before application, which in the best case is clear and translucent. Then they can be applied directly.

Suitable is: casting resin, epoxy resin, tree resin, liquid plastics, wallpaper paste, transparent glue, hot glue, silicone, acrylic varnish, nail polish. Fixing spray, grease cream. For indoor areas, choose a solvent-free carrier. In the garden and, for example, for bicycles and cars, we recommend weather-resistant carrier liquid and sealing with an additional protective coating.

It is important that the pigments are not covered by darker / opaque particles, as in this case the luminosity is reduced. Test milky liquids to see if they become transparent during curing. In this case, you can use the pigments with them without any problems.

Can the pigments be mixed with other artist and wall paints?

Mixing with other colors is generally possible with our professional products. However, the pigments should not be coated or covered by other colors, this would darken their luminosity. Observe the following instructions to maintain the luminosity in the best possible way: the lighter/ more translucent the other color, the more prominent the self-luminous color pigments will be. You can thin dark acrylic paints slightly and then incorporate the glow pigments with acyrl binder. You will get the best result if the noctilucent powders mixed with clear varnish are applied thinly to the painted picture. The pigments are whitish in daylight and appear like a slightly dusty layer on the painting when you look closely. However, the underlying color still stands out clearly.

lumentics tips
Due to the pigments' own weight, they may sink into water-based paints. You can thicken the carrier liquid with clear varnish before sprinkling.
For painting on paper and wallpaper, prime with white acrylic paint so that the pigments remain on the surface of the material.
For painting textiles, mixing with normal fabric paints is not sufficient. We advise to use transparent screen printing inks.

What mixing ratio is used?

The mixing ratio is ideally matched to the viscosity of the carrier liquid. A mixing ratio of one part glow powder to two parts carrier liquid (1:2) is appropriate in most cases. For dark mixed colors, you can sprinkle in slightly more luminescent pigments. The denser the pigment ratio, the stronger the luminosity. If the pigment ratio is too high, the mixture may form lumps. It is best to mix slowly while stirring constantly.

For incorporation into wall paint, the mixture of 1:1 - 1:3 is well suited, depending on the viscosity and brightness of the paint.

Any tips on how to apply it?

The mixed powders can be applied well with a narrow brush for fine drawings. Instead of one thick layer, it is better to apply several thin coats so that nothing runs. On useful surfaces (e.g. musical instruments, stair treads), seal the pigment layer with an impact-resistant transparent topcoat.

Are the luminescent pigments water-resistant?

The luminous pigments are water-resistant due to a protective coating, they can be used, for example, to illuminate decorative fountains, aquariums or swimming pools. Due to the weight, they sink down in the water and do not float in the liquid, as known from a snow globe. They shine a little weaker from the bottom, because the pigments there can absorb less light. 

How long do the pigments retain their luminosity?

The offered Lumentics pigments are very high quality, the shades green and blue have an afterglow time of 8-12 hours. The pigment purple afterglows for 3 h and orange for about 1 h. The strongest luminosity is reached in the first half hour, then it gradually decreases. All pigments are guaranteed to be usable over and over again for up to 15 years and retain their properties.

Do they all shine with the same intensity?

Glow powders in the colors green and blue-green show the strongest afterglow effect. The blue pigments are less pronounced. The orange and purple versions radiate at a wavelength that is more difficult for the human eye to detect. Therefore, the luminosity appears lower than, for example, with the strongly luminous perceived colors green and blue-green. On dark backgrounds or as face paint, the purple-glow pigment stands out with difficulty. Mix in some blue-green powder if necessary.

The purple color pigment is very difficult to excite by light with a low UV content (e.g. an incandescent bulb).

What color are the fluorescent powders in daylight?

The luminous pigments are supplied in a resealable bag and are white-yellowish in daylight. After charging, they glow in the dark in the desired color.

Can the applied pigment be removed again?

The premium glow powders are removable according to the description of the carrier substance. From textiles (without special fixation) and skin, the pigments can be removed well with soapy water.
