Do you have any (multiple?) data on longevity of the glow from your luminous paint product please? E.g. After exposure to 100,000 lux (direct summer sunlight) for 4 hours, the paint is luminous at greater than 100 lux for 8 hours and then reduces at a rate of 10 lux per hour thereafter.
The particular type of luminous pigment used in Coo-Var Luminous Paint is fully charged almost instantaneously (probably less than 1 second) when exposed to northern daylight. Charging will take a little longer at reduced light levels, with both natural and artificial light. The afterglow lasts between 15 to 25 minutes, usually, if fully charged. At the later stages, perception of the afterglow will depend on the eye becoming accustomed to the darkness.
Coo-Var Luminous Paint is intended to be used where there is the potential for a sudden loss of light, as a possible result of a power failure to lighting in areas without daylight. Its use outside at night would be limited because it would be fully discharged during twilight, as day progresses through to night-time, without being energised with a light source.
A professional grade of glow in the dark tape, offering up to 10 hours of glow time from a single charge. Manufactured to a professional standard, there is no limit to the amount of times Glow Tape can be re-charged, making it ideal for continuous use and permanent applications.
Coo-Var Luminous Paint Clear Protective is a clear coating essential to protect the finish and effectiveness of Coo-Var luminous paint against wear. ADVANTAGES Prolongs colour retention Protects from weathering Extends the life expectancy of the system Recommended addition when using luminous paint outdoors
Glow In The Dark Hazard Striped Anti Slip Tape provides high visibility during the day and at night due to the photo-luminescent properties of the tape which store light energy and then release it in the form of a glow.
