I will go into more detail in my review.
-The vehicle for the glow particles is milky and opaque until it dries and cures completely, It'll cure in about 12 hours, but the maximum efficiency is reached in 24 hours, after a couple of days you'll notice it looses the plastic consistency and become something like a real hard dry epoxy cement when all the water content leaves the mix (this is when it reaches maximum hardness). How much pigment?
-The pigment has a reflective material and a whitening agent so a white primer is not necessary in most cases, but still has a degree of transparency, to allow for light absorption, a thick application is necessary in some cases, if your sights have this characteristics:
It might be necessary to apply several layers inside the receded dots until they are fully "loaded" to achieve a higher glow.Eye adaptation
-It takes for the human eye about 30 minutes to be completely adapted to night vision, when this happens, the glow is perceived as a white "ghost glow" for hours; at this point, "color" as we know it cannot be perceived. Also at this point the "ghost glow" is bright enough to line up a shot but not bright enough to compromise your position.Exposure to light
Under most conditions, regular artificial illumination in a bedroom before bedtime will charge the pigment self Adhesive if you situated it around the room, above light switches, TV remote, your shirt, your hands LOL, etc.
Everything has limitations, and of course Glow-On is not an exception,
Heck, I like what I wrote so much I'm putting it on the Glow-on website
