update:

After a 10 second or so charge with a flashlight(as mentioned before) the paint on stuff was still glowing sometime early this morning. I was in zombie mode so I'm not sure what time exactly but probably around 6:00 a.m.

So this stuff glowed for approx. 7 hours after a 10 second charge!
freakin awesome if you ask me. I now give the paint on stuff a 10 for functionality.


BTW, the dots glow great, they are just hard to work with cause they are so small. An "unclumsy" person would be very satisfied with them.

So in the end the only thing I don't like is having to paint over it all with nail polish. My guns are sissy now....

It lives up to the instructions, there is no bullcrap written in them. Even the "unstickiness" of the dots is in the instructions.

Thanks for this amazing opportunity. The only real problem I see is that I'm very childish in some ways. I'll probably have Glow-On painted all over the place. I bet my house looks like Christmas by next week.

For the final review I will use a real camera instead of the Cell Phone. I want to give a good final evaluation of the product.

Anybody else wondering how this stuff would adhere to a toilet or outside keyhole?

Done, I can pee with the lights out and hit the bowl. Thinking ahead, wait for the review.

man i think I got a bum bottle or something. I am getting about 20 to 30 minutes of good seeable glow from the kimber after 5 minutes under a 100w CFL.

I will go into more detail in my review.

I will go into more detail in my review.
Pigment efficiency
-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

If anyone of the testers had a mishap, spill the stuff or else just PM me I'll expedite more stuff your way.
Just PM me.

I put 5 coats on my model 65 over several hours. Then it sat for about 24 hours before I charged it the first time.

I put the big dots on my HK USC

I put three coats on my Mossberg bead's

I might do my AK sights next and my FIL's shotgun too.

I'm really loving this stuff. I most certainly will not waste it on the toilet seat. Heck I miss and pee on the floor in the daytime, I don't even try in the dark

Question:
So using the subject below for example, would it be better for me to apply the Glow-on OVER the "white" currently on these sights, or would it be better to remove the white in order to apply more coats of the product in the recesses?
