What can't powder be added to?
- Glow powder can't be mixed with metal based products
- If mixed with dark coloured mediums, the glow will be significantly reduced
- Mediums with UV inhibitors will affect the charge time and brightness of glow
How does it work?
Our glow powder is made up of particles that absorb light energy from almost any light source. The sun and UV black lights are the strongest and will charge the particles the quickest (in as little as a minute).
Whilst exposed to light, the particles will hold on to their charge. When the surrounding light drops the particles start to 'let go' of their charge and a glow is seen. The darker the area, the brighter the glow.Buy Now
How much will I need?
Generally speaking, around 30grams of powder per 100ml of whatever medium you choose. We strongly recommend you do a small trial first though to test the effect and the efficacy of the resulting product (for example, too much powder in paint can affect how the paint adheres to a surface).
Colour and particle size?
Glowing Gecko offers 3 main colour choices:
- Yellow Green (brightest)
- Blue Green
- Sky Blue (least brightest)
In each of the 3 colours we also offer 3 different particle sizes
- Fine (5-15um)
- Medium (35-50um)
- Course (75-100um)
The image below shows the course powder mixed with paint on the left, and the fine mixed with paint on the right.Buy Now
Generally speaking, the course particle size is heavier, brighter, and will suffer higher temperatures.
