Glow Powder Glow Principles and Questions and Answers

Below are some questions and answers raised by customers

1. Question: The glow powder does not glow when I receive it. Is it invalid?
Answer: Glow powder is a light-storage product. The principle is that it emits light by absorbing light sources. Each time it emits light, it lasts for 8-12 hours. The stages are divided into early stage, middle stage, and late stage. The early stage is the period with the best effect and then continues to glow. In the later stage, that is, after 10 hours, the effect will gradually lose its effectiveness. The reason why the received product does not glow is because there is no light source absorbed during the logistics process. Just expose it to the sun or light for a while and it will glow again.

2. Question: Why is the effect not obvious at night even though I have been exposed to the sun all day during the day?
Answer: Because the principle of glow powder is to absorb light and emit light at the same time, that is to say, it also starts to emit light during the process of storing light. If it absorbs light during the day, but after dusk time and the highlight period of glow powder, you can only see it. With slightly weaker light, the glow effect is more obvious, but now you can see it is very bright when you turn on the light and shine it again.

3. Question: Which color of glow powder works best?
Answer: The glow effect is better if the pink color is white, such as the three basic colors of yellow-green, blue-green, and sky green.
