We are small research, development with small manufacture company. New generation of Photo luminescent (PL) materials – Glow in the Dark Materials (GDM) are based on activated aluminates-silicate crystals. These materials are manufactured by using sintering and contact melting phenomenon. The new experimental results of investigation of luminous powder with special thermal, mechanical and chemical treatments dramatically increased the application of this material.
A self-sustaining luminous material is proposed, to provide illumination that requires little or no maintenance, plus a low initial cost. The new Glow in the Dark products (paint, concrete, plastic, fabric, metal, etc) can provide long-term high performance, luminous glow-in-the-dark properties, plus the potential for a variety of uses such as signs, emergency luminance, walkways, roadway, highways and airports, parking lots, etc.
Our Small Business Innovation Research project explores the concept of a new generation of luminous materials for enhancing visibility of highway and airway safety systems (e.g., surface markings, barriers, curbstones, poles, retaining/sound absorption walls). In addition, our materials with luminous properties will provide greener solutions as a renewable energy with lower costs material. Luminous “Glow in the Dark” powder is widely used in various applications such as in Glow in the Dark materials, paint, plastic molding, Silk-Screen Printing, photoluminescent tape, photoluminescent sheet, Ceramic Tiles, and various kinds of safety signs. The proposed luminous material is based on application of contact melting of crystal phenomenon to produce luminous powder and combine this powder with varieties of transparent resins and binders to produce luminous paints with special chemical treatment of new luminous powder. Based on preliminary results, it is anticipated that this proposed concept can produce a new technology for generation of powder and paint with new luminous properties. The reason for the Research, development and testing of technology for manufacturing luminous “Glow in the Dark” materials (powder, paints) is to try to ensure sufficient luminance without an electrical supply.
