    I love this stuff :-)

    Very high quality stuff will definitely buy from this company again


    Glow-On is specialized glow in the dark paint:
    Is not a gel and it dries to the consistency of synthetic cement.
    Gels detach by virtue of their flexibility. Also Gels don't stand temperatures well.
    Glow-On is a dense product. Imagine you buy an ounce of the best glow paint and concentrate it in a 2.3 ml vial.

    I have your Glow On n 2 of my guns and it is useless until exposed to light for at least a few seconds.

    I bought several bottles of Glow-on after reading all the great reviews. I put it on all my sights, my flashlights & other stuff; but, I still had bottles left over. So, I put them in my safe until I needed to do a retouch several months later. When, I got the stuff out again, all of it had dried up & became useless.

    "I would say I do like it. But, as an alternative to good night sights? Not so much."

    I would also tell people to buy only what the will immediately use. Then, buy more when you need more because it doesn't store very well. (At least, it didn't for me.)

    Thanks for the post!
    Exactly as it should be, it has to be exposed to light for a couple of seconds.
    Everything requires some prep work in life right?

    Notice that the standard white dots which most firearms have as standard, won't glow at all , unless I apply Glow-On to them right?
    Which is exactly the purpose of Glow-On.
    Of course there are more solutions.

    Does it glow all night long?
    Try this: Just leave the small bottle of Glow-On near you when you go to sleep.
    You'll be able to see it all night long, a dimmed glow however, so w advise:
    Make your markings as big as you can.

    Glow-On works as intended.
    It's not the perfect solution for everything still a great solution.

    One could keep the white dots, no problem. It's a choice

    Exactly the same thing happens to me with testors paint and Super Glue....

    The vials are no match for changes in temperature and atmospheric pressure.
    At the end of the day, the paint will do what it's supposed to do, it will dry.

    Please purchase only what you are planning to use.
    A small 2.3 ml vials is good for a couple of dozen guns.
    But, even if you just have a couple of firearms:
    US 5.00 per gun is not a bad deal at all, compare with other solutions and check it out.

    Fishing lures, small projects like clocks and such, a medium 4.6 or large 9.2 ml is better.

    This is how Glow-On compares to those very popular plastic stars kids put on their ceilings:

    [QUOTE=tcox4freedom;3736025]I bought several bottles of Glow-on after reading all the great reviews. I put it on all my sights, my flashlights & other stuff; but, I still had bottles left over.

    "I would say I do like it. But, as an alternative to good night sights? Not so much."

    The stuff does tend to dry out over time but the solution? Put a few drops of water into the bottle and stir with the wooden stick that is enclosed. Check it every few weeks and add just a drop or two if needed and stir/shake.

    It works best the longer it is on something and tends to take less light to get it go glow longer after a period of time too. I take mine and give my sights a close contact shot of a hi power mini flashlight. The stuff is still glowing enough to see the sights deep into the night.

    Love mine, and recommend it highly. I know where my gun is and which is the "dangerous end" when something goes "bump" at zero dark thirty.
