Normally 30-60 minutes to touch.T o handle 3-4 hrs. Recoats in 2 hours.

Can I find this paint at my local Craft Store?
No. Our glow paints use the next generation glow technology that glows up to 10 times longer than the older type. Most glow paints being sold use the lesser expensive zinc powders.

How can I improve paints performance?                                                               First paint a white background. A light or white background will achieve maximum glow effect.

How do I charge the paint?
Glow paint responds best to light sources rich in UV rays such as sunlight, black lamps and halogen lamps. Tungsten lamps (typical household bulbs) take longer to recharge the pigment because their UV output is low. Fluorescent lamps, which are rich in UV, provide faster excitation when Glow-Powder is placed near them.

Sun light - 5 minutes / UV light (Black light) - 5 to 10 minutes / Normal light - 20 to 30 minutes.

Sunlight is the best source for charging the products, but practically any light source will do. Black light is a good provider of UV light (Glow-in-the-dark Bowling with black lights would be excellent).

How many times can I charge it?
You can charge the paints OVER AND OVER indefinitely! Paints have been tested to have a shelf life of a 1 year minimum.

How does your new technology compare to the old glow-in-the-dark stuff?
There are two basic glow-in-the-dark (GID) materials. The older style that has been around for many years is Zinc Sulphide with Copper as an activator (those stars for kids rooms) and THE NEXT GENERATION Strontium Aluminate that Glow Paint Pro Sells. The afterglow is about 10 times longer than conventional pigments and about 10 times brighter. The excitation wavelength is very broad 200-450nm. We only carry the new powder. FYI - the new powder is 10X more expensive!
