Luminescent Powder

Luminescent Powder is a type of glow in the dark pigment that can be used to make various types of equipment. It can also be mixed as an additive with transparent media such as printing ink, paint, plastics, printing paste, ceramics and glassware to enable them to glow in the dark.


The brightness of glow powders is an important factor to consider when choosing a product. This is because some phosphorescent powders are very bright (in fact, they are often 10 times more bright than their cheaper counterparts made from zinc sulfide) while others have very dull, weak glows.

The brightest phosphorescent powders are those based on strontium aluminate and are also the longest lasting, with afterglow time ranging from 12 hours to more than a day! Strontium aluminate has also been proven to be non-toxic and safe.

Our glow powders come in a variety of different particle sizes and luminous intensities. Some are quite fine and can be used as airbrushing pigments, while others are coarser and are more suitable for a range of artistic, decorative and craft applications.

Glow in the dark powders are essentially microscopic photo-luminescent crystals which absorb invisible UV energy from existing light sources and re-emit most of that energy as visible light. The process is quite a bit like the way that our planets glow in the dark when exposed to the sun or moon’s UV rays.

These powders can be used in hundreds of safety, commercial, artistic and craft applications. They are heat, solvent and water resistant, making them ideal for a wide range of applications.

This type of luminescent powder is particularly useful for low-location emergency lighting, indication marks and decorations. It can be mixed with transparent media such as printing ink, paint, plastics, printing paste, ceramics, glassware and yarn to make them glow in the dark.

Luminescent powders can be used to mark items such as tools, cars and other valuables to ensure they cannot be stolen. The powders also can be applied to surfaces such as windows, doors, mirrors and other surfaces for a long-lasting glow. The powders can be painted onto surfaces, rolled over or sprinkled on top of a material to achieve the desired effect.


Luminescent powder is highly durable and can be charged many times over before it loses its glow strength. It can withstand extreme temperatures and can even be used in glass kilns. This makes it a great choice for creating luminescent art for home, school, and business use.

It can also be used to create glow in the dark stickers, inks, and phosphorescent resin moulds. The luminous pigment is highly popular with children who love to have things that glow in the dark.

In recent years, the demand for glow pigments has grown considerably. It is being used to make labels that Luminescent Powder give instructions like “Open this fire extinguisher!” or “Go in the direction shown on the map!” This kind of label is especially helpful in an emergency as it helps people understand where they need to go.

The luminous powder is also used to make glow in the dark inks and phosphorescent paints that are used on roads for safety purposes. This can also be used to paint the walls of children’s rooms.

Another example of the durability of Luminescent powder is that it can be used to create self-luminescent concrete, which is an innovative and functional civil engineering material. This concrete is made from a mixture of strontium aluminate doped with europium and dysprosium. It has a high mechanical strength and can be used as an alternative to coarse aggregate in cement-based materials.

A study aimed to investigate the influence of four different luminescent powders (ZnS:Cu, SrAl2O4:Eu2+, Dy3+, ZnS:Pr3+, and SrAl2O4:Te3+) on the properties of architectural luminescent glass-mortars (ALM). The results showed that all LPs have a good fresh property and high mechanical strength with a proper excitation and emission wavelengths.

It is also important to consider that the luminous powder should be water resistant, because it can absorb moisture from water and the Luminescent Powder glow will diminish over time. This is especially true of non-waterproof glow powder.

The most common way to use luminous powder is to add it to resin art. It can be sprinkled on top of acrylic paint, a wet coat of varnish or mixed into resin mixtures. You can even use it in casting epoxy to create glow-in-the-dark artwork, skateboards, furniture and floors.


Luminescent Powders (photoluminescent pigments, glow in the dark powder) have the ability to self-glow after being charged with natural or artificial light. They are also heat, solvent and water resistant making them ideal for a wide range of applications.

Unlike traditional glow powders, the latest generation of luminescent pigments are not toxic or radioactive and are safe for human health and the environment. They are a new generation of materials that have been derived from strontium aluminate powder which is a nontoxic, radioactive free and stable chemical performance material.

These products have a long glow time with high luminosity and are highly effective for low-location emergency lighting, indication marks and decorations. These luminescent pigments are available in different color varieties including blue, green and yellow. They can be mixed with other transparent media like printing ink, paint, plastics and paper to make the product glow.

Our glow powders are strontium aluminate based which means that they have the longest and brightest glow times of any glow in the dark powder on the market. They have a very strong, luminous and vibrant glow with a duration of up to 12 hours depending on the medium used for mixing.

The glow powders come in many different colors including blue, green, yellow, and sky blue. The color of the glow powder will determine how bright it will be but in general, blue and yellow will be the most visible.

Glow powders can be charged with a variety of lights including UV but the best quality and most powerful glow is when it is charged with the light source it was designed to work with. Generally speaking, it will take about a minute for the glow powder particles to be fully charged if using a UV light source.

When using a light source for charging the glow powder, it is very important to ensure that it is clean and dry so that it doesn’t attract any contaminants or dirt. A clean and dry surface will result in a better, longer lasting glow.

The study examined 204 areas in the student scan laboratory that were evaluated for contamination over three periods, baseline, observation 1, and observation 2. Each area was contaminated with glow germ powder at a specific location prior to a scanning session and then evaluated again after a debriefing activity. This process was able to educate students about infection control techniques and helped them understand where the most vulnerable areas were in the lab.


Luminescent Powder is a phosphorescent powder that traps solar energy or artificial light and emits it as visible light in the dark without using any electricity. It is used to create luminous products and can be incorporated in a wide range of transparent or translucent media, such as printing ink, paint, plastics, printing paste, glassware and yarn to produce glow-in-the-dark materials. The powder can be mixed with a variety of materials to make it glow in different colors and has good performance for low-location emergency lighting, indication marks and decorations.

The powder may be doped with one or more dopants such as Co, Mn, Cd, Fe, Ni and Sn to obtain a fluorescent powder that has a wide range of peak wavelengths (fluorescence colors) and is capable of exhibiting fluorescence at each of the peak wavelengths. The chromaticity of the luminescent powder can be controlled by changing the dopant concentration and formation.

As with other phosphorescent powders, the luminescent properties of the material are dependent on the dopant and its chemistry. In addition, the crystalline structure of the material and its thickness are factors that affect its brightness. The intensity of the emitted luminescence can be calculated with the aid of the equations of Kubelka and Munk.

It is also possible to control the chromaticity of the luminescent particles by controlling the dopant concentration and the size of the crystal. The use of dopants in this way can lead to a variety of chromaticity effects, which is of interest because it could allow for the development of new fluorescent powders with increased luminescence and spectral purity.

Furthermore, the use of a dopant such as Co in a luminescent material can provide a number of advantages such as obtaining a fluorescent powder with a higher aspect ratio than would be possible with an undoped material. In addition, the presence of a dopant increases the chromaticity of the luminescent material, and thus allows for improved light accumulation and a higher-brightness phosphor.
