The Technology Behind the Glow

Advanced Visibility's Glow Technology has been developed over years of technical research and advancements allowing development of Strontium Nitrate based pigment along with other elements to be manipulated to achieve a performance of maximum glow intensity, extended decay time, rapid charging and laundry performance.

The specified formulated pigments have a high capacity for absorbing and storing light energy by allowing atoms in the pigments to absorb photon energy from an ultra violet light source. The light source can be natural daylight or artificial light. These electrons act like little batteries effectively storing light energy.

The afterglow can be seen in reduced light conditions such as a dimly lit warehouse, unlit roadway, shadows of large machinery, abandoned buildings, smoky conditions etc. Afterglow can be seen in complete dark conditions such as power outages, unlit roads, railroad tracks, tunnels, manholes, working outdoors etc.

The initial afterglow when measured after 2 minutes in millicandellas per square metre (mcd/m2) usilg a photometer is 1800+ (mcd/m2) and extinction time for afterglow to diminish to (0.32mcd/m2) or about 100 times limit of human perception is 480 minutes. (8 hours)
