This is the most incredible glow-in-the-dark paint we have ever seen! The brightness and glow duration are the best available today.
You can paint a starscape in a room, complete with planets and comets in color, that will glow through the night. Decorate toys and models for night time fun, or accent your car for special effects at night. Let your imagination and creativity run wild!

The solvent-based ultra blue is extremely bright, second only to the ultra green glow paint for initial brightness. Its greenish blue glow is a closer match to the color of stars in the night sky, and it glows for 8 or more hours while appearing almost clear in daylight.
Photoluminescent materials absorb light energy as electrons in their atoms are boosted to high energy levels by absorbing individual light quanta, or photons. Instead of dropping back to where they originally came from, though, these excited electrons transfer to a nearby, intermediate energy level and keep much of the photon energy. Dropping back from this intermediate state, called a metastable state, to ground level is slow going. As these metastable electrons gradually drop back to ground level, they release the rest of their energy as the visible glow we see.
