Glow-On gun sights paint. Glow in the dark gun sights. Will it glow all night long?
Question: Glow in the dark gun sights. Will it glow all night long?
Answer: Yes it will, a few users might contradict this statement. But somehow things have a way to prove themselves, just spill some Glow-On on your pajamas and you'll find out soon enough if it does glow all night long. It does :image035:.
Not only that, you are bound to find out that no mater how many times you wash your pajamas, the glow does not diminish with use.
Of course the glow has a cycle, it starts very bright, it will almost illuminate your whole room. Then fades slowly, all, night, long.
Gun sights paint:Can you include a small brush in the future?
Thanks for the question.
The applicator included in the package is a bit thick, I used a small brush I had laying around, can you include a small brush in the future?
Small brushes seem useful when you start, but they tend to accumulate the solids inside the bristle and it becomes difficult to have a thin tip to work your gun sights.
There is an easy and quick solution. All we need is a pair of scissors to cut the tip at an angle, like on the sequence that follows:
Gun sight paint: How much do I need for this project?
Glow-On might not work for your project.
How do I know how much to order im thinking about applying to the window and door locks in my car as they do not light up
There is usually enough illumination around vehicles to operate door locks and such.
Glow-On is more of a solution for very, very dark places like your bedroom in the middle of the night, etc. TV remotes, alarms, light switches etc. are good candidates.
If you still would like to try, I'd recommend you apply it where it's visible but it won't come into contact with your fingers.
The paint feels dry to the touch, but it will take at least 24 hours for it to harden enough so it wont be accidentally removed.
PM me and I'll send you a sample so you can see how it works, first hand experience is best. Your project is a "maybe it'll work" thing so I cannot in honesty charge you and guarantee it. If it is fishing lures, gun sights, or if you plan to use the self adhesive form on switches, alarms, remotes, etc. I guarantee you you'll be pleased with the results.
Glow-On is a great product but it is not miraculous. It might not work for every project.
Gun sights paint: Do you apply it over the stock white paint on the sight?
If the white paint is in good shape just apply a bead over it, just wipe it off with a paper towel and alcohol.
Do you apply it over the stock white paint on the sight, or do your remove the white paint on the sight first? Thanks
You could remove the paint, if you wish. It's just a n extra step.

Glow-On is a must have for gun owners. If you have a number of firearms, chances are you'll find it helpful for things like a nocturnal varmint inventory liquidation program or such.
Which, I'll say it, is hopefully the most action our firearms will see besides the gun range.http://www.1911auto.org/forum/images...s/biglaugh.gif

-The paint was mixed well before I used it, the solids tend to go to the bottom.
-Is the application thick enough? The dot on the cap of the vial is a good comparative point.
- To remove the paint, the easiest way is to pry it off with a plastic tool, fork, utensil, etc (not metal as it will scratch the finish on your firearm).
If the paint has been for a few months and it's very hard, use a cotton swab and a bit of nail varnish remover, touch the paint a couple of times. This will soften it and then rub it off. do this carefully, acetone will affect the finish on plastic pieces/parts of your gun and/or some finish. True blued finish will not be affected.
From our website:
For how long will it glow after full exposure?
Full charge can be achieved in a few seconds under a small LED flashlight.
Under daylight, this happens almost instantaneously.
Under daylight, Glow-On constantly emits and reflects light, making the transition from illuminated to dark areas very smooth.
The afterglow duration time is 1200 minutes until decay is complete (as tested at the laboratory).
This means the phosphorescent activity ends completely at that time. To the human eye it is perceptible 5-7 hours, depending on individual sensitivity.
The initial glow is very bright, brighter than tritium, and it starts to decay slowly for hours. If you have good night vision (natural human eye adaptation to the dark) the glow will be clearly perceived by you all night long, even if it is faint.
A couple of seconds under a led flashlight will revive the glow to its fullest.
This cycle can be repeated millions of times during the life of the product which is about ten years.

How heat resistant is the original glow-on?
Thanks for such interesting question. In fact we've tried something similar with small LED lamps.
How heat resistant is the original glow-on?
I was thinking of putting some around the base of the headlight bulbs in my car so that once I turn the headlights off they will glow.
Will Glow-on hold up under this type of heat or will it burn or smoke?
Glow-On Original will stand the temperatures of the sights mounted over a hot barrel.
I think, however, that the temps on a headlights lamp will be too high if the paint is too close.
I any case a bit further away from the lam should work and it will create a real cool effect.
Here are a few photos to illustrate the effect on a small LED lamp:
A small tutorial is in order, I'll oblige later todayhttp://img.xdtalk.com/forums/images/.../icon_razz.gif
