Meant for the industry sectors, the phosphorescent pigments have the capacity to store and emit light:
they load up with light (sun, electrical, UV) and release slowly the stored energy by glowing in the dark.

Definition* : the word photoluminescent covers in general all types of pigments that can emit light thanks to a luminous excitement. Thus, to be more precise, we will talk about phosphorescent pigments.

LUMINANCE : The pigments glow over a variable period of time and in a quick decay curve, that will stabilizes itself during long hours.
The luminance is measured in microcandela/sqm. The luminance can totally extinguish days after an excitement to light. The intensity of the glow will depend of the size of the pigment particle and of its colour: green particles are larger and will glow longer.

ASPECT : The pigment powders are colourless during the day

TYPES OF PIGMENTS : We deal with the biggest choice of pigments, available in several models according to their colours, the size of the particles and their type (solvent or water based)
We also produce a range of pigments coloured by day (please contact us by email only)
