The Production Process
There are many types of glow-in-the-dark products, and if you have ever seen any of these products, you know that they all have to be "charged". You hold them up to a light for a few minutes, and then take them to a dark place where they glow for several hours.
All glow-in-the-dark products contain phosphors. A phosphor is a substance that radiates visible light after being energized. The two places where we most commonly see phosphors are in a TV screen or computer monitor and in fluorescent lights. In a TV screen, an electron beam strikes the phosphor to
energize it. In a fluorescent light, ultraviolet light energizes the phosphor. In both cases, what we see is visible light. To make a glow-in-the-dark product, what you want is a phosphor that is energized by normal light and that has a very long persistence.
GloTech's photoluminescent glow-in-the-dark phosphors are derived from non-radioactive natural rare earth mineral crystals that possess the unique capacity to absorb and store energy from ambient light. In darkness, the crystals instantly begin to emit a luminous glow by releasing the stored light energy. Natural rare earth mineral crystals are thus the primary components that energize glow-in-the-dark products.
GloTech's state-of-the-art photon-emitting crystals have been developed based on the latest breakthroughs in photoluminescent technology and can be used in novelty grade glow-in-the- dark toys, display signs, as well as safety grade commercial products such as signs and emergency egress guidance systems.
We are committed to product quality and service excellence and this is reflected in our production process.
