    Glow-On Gun sights paint physical tests

    This thread is response to some requests for tests on physical qualities of this product. Competitors pop every once in awhile to check on us...They are welcome.


    Lets star with what you from Glow-On vs. a generic good for all craft paint of very good quality:
    Most other products are GEL with glow particles floating in it....
    That saves them money of course.


    Chek the water content on this samples

    Go with the glow

    Glow-On gun sights paint opacity.

    Lets talk about opacity.


    Wikipedia: " The degree to which light is not allowed to travel through"


    Why would one want transparent paint over gun sights, particularly if the sights happen to be dark?
    Glow-On formula lets in enough light to charge the whole patch while blocking the background and allowing this way more glow efficiency.
    Opaque paint gives a better quality glow of course.

    Glow-On hardness test.

    After Glow-On dries (a couple of hours) and cures (2-3 days) It becomes hard, like synthetic cement. Some flexibility remains, but it's minimal.


    Hardness...Wikipedia again..
    "Hardness is a measure of how resistant solid matter is to various kinds of permanent shape change when a force is applied"

    Glow-On adhesion test

    Wikipedia:
    "Process of attachment of a substance to the surface of another substance. "


    Adherence problems are rooted in the fact that the surface is not completely clean.
    Good grade alcohol and a paper towel are necessary. Not a dirty T-shirt, towel, rag, etc.

    Glow-On glow comparison tests.

    Everyone's set eyes are different and some can see better than others.
    Heck, some can see things that aren't there, ha, ha, ha!


    Describing how long this thing will glow for you will render different opinions.


    A better idea is to say the brighter initial glow will last longer.
    And that friend is Glow-On. In fact our product has gotten brighter as better materials are developed every day. We always use freshly milled material.

    I've written thousands of words trying to convey what one of our customers expressed in just a few lines.
