Powder or photo luminous Glow Pigment as it is
sometimes called, is the raw material used in
the manufacture of all glow in the dark products.
We carry the full range of glow in the dark powder
pigments. This range is divided into different
grades according to glowing brightness, length
of glow and color of glow. Our range starts from
the lowest grade, to the highest grade, which
can glow for more than 16 hours. There are no
higher grades than this, at present.This glow
in the dark powder pigment works by absorbing
and releasing light energy, in a continuous cycle.
When the surrounding is bright, it absorbs light
energy and releases this light energy when it
is dark.Glow Powder can be re-charged many times
over just by exposing it to any light source,
preferably those with Ultra Violet rays like sunlight
or ambient light, including regular indoor light.
Glow Powder shelf life of more than 10 years.
Glow powder is used for the production of other
raw materials or products like: Glow Paint and
Inks for brush painting, spray painting, printing,
etc... Luminous Sticker for signage, decoration,
path markers, etc.. Plastic Masterbatch Pellets
for the production of glow in the dark plastic
products. Luminous Thread and Fibre for the production
of glow cloth, ropes, carpets, etc..
The most common use of glow powder is to produce
glow in the dark paint. This is pretty straight
forward as you just have to mix the powder and
paint and start painting. As easy as it may sound,
some experience and know how is required. The
Twilight Glow Paint kit would help anyone use
glow paint professionally.
As mentioned above, glow powder can be used in
a wide spectrum of other applications like plastic,
glass, thread, etc...
We will now proceed to explain the differences
between the various types of glow powder we carry.
This section only deals with the raw material
(glow powder). If you are interested in glow inks,

Glow powder is sold in different particle / mesh
size. Different particle size have different luminous
properties and are suited for different applications.
See table below for details.

section is about Wonder Glo Photo Luminous Glow
in the Dark inks and Paints. Difference between
glow inks and glow paints is that paints are meant
to be applied by brush or spray. Inks are more
for printing purposes like silk-screen printing
and offset printing. We carry 2 types of Pre-mixed,
Photo Luminous Glow in the Dark Inks. One is meant
for silk screen printing and the other for offset
printing. Within these 2 types, we have different
grades meant for different surfaces. Pre-mixed
glow inks comes in the standard green-glow color.
Silk screen inks are available in other colors
but this is sold un-mixed.
inks come pre-mixed with our long glow powder
and ready for immediate use. There are different
inks for different applications and surfaces.
The inks are available in a standard color of
'Cream' under normal light, with a 'Light Green'
glow color, in the dark. The table below shows
the different types of glow inks we carry.
Glo Photo Luminescent Sticker Film and board are
PVC sheets with glow material applied on them.
Glow sticker film and board are two different
products. Glow film is made from soft PVC and
is flexible and can be cut easily into any required
shape, either with a pair of scissors or by die
cutting. Glow Stickers come with adhesive backing.
Glow board is made from hard PVC and is a rigid
These luminous products come with or without a
layer of transparent protective sheet.
The purpose of this sheet is to provide additional
protection to the glow surface. The layer must
be removed if you intend to do any sort of printing
on this material. Silk Screen Printing are the
only direct printing methods suitable for this
product. Printing is also possible with special
modifications to the surface.
You can also choose between adhesive and non-adhesive
backing. Adhesive backing enables the film or
board to be stuck on any normal, flat surface,
free from oil or grease. While this product can
be used outdoors, the adhesive is not strong enough
for outdoor use.
This product is a finished product and can be
used to create glow signs, designs (by indirect
printing), labels, or route markers in emergency
Glo Plastic Pellets / Master Batches are specially
manufactured for Plastic Injection Molding purposes.
Plastic molding is used mainly for the production
of glow in the dark, plastic products like plastic
toys, plastic casings, plastic credit cards, etc...
You could still manufacture plastic products that
glow by mixing the glow powder directly into plastic
and molding but anyone who has tried it would
know that it is easier said than done. Which is
why we created plastic pellets, which already
contain the glow powder.
All you have to do is to melt it and mold it into
your required shape.
Using Glow Master Batch Pellets, is the best way
to produce glow in the dark plastic products,
but it is also very costly. Reason for this is
because you would need to create a mold, usually
out of cast steel. Cost for this alone can run
into thousands of dollars. So unless you are thinking
of manufacturing this in large quantities, it
is not worth it. Cheaper alternate methods of
applying glow to plastic would be painting.
The following types of Ready Made Plastic
Pellets are available
PP, PE, AS, ABS,
PC and PS
Standard color of the pellets are cream or off-white
and the glow color is White, Green, Violet, Sky-blue,
Aqua-blue & color of the pellets are Red,
Yellow, Orange its glow like same.
We can also produce Luminous Plastic Master Batch
Pellets according to your specifications but we
won’t a minimum order is required. Send

Glo Emergency Sign Glow in the Dark materials
can be a great addition to a "lights out"
evacuation guidance system. It is not appropriate
or adequate to use this as your only lighting
system and is far from a replacement for proper
battery powered exit signs.
It is best used to mark the edges of stairs or
to define a walkway through a warehouse.
