    Enhance you weapon's sights with little money.
    [​IMG]

    Glow-on super phosphorescent is ideal for the job, glows in the dark, the glow is long lasting, for just a few bucks.

    The black cap on every glow-on vial shows the contents in real time and what you should expect after you apply it. The pigment is volumetric so it fills easily those old white dots some gun sights have, which get soiled so often

    How long does it glow when not exposed to light say in a pouch all day and pulled for fast work in a dark room?

    Hi Wenonah.
    First, thanks for your support.

    To answer your question, if the sidearm has been stored in a bag for a long time the phosphorescent paint wont glow.

    There has to be a previous exposure to light for it to glow, just a minute is enough, contrary to popular belief, it doesn't take half an hour, since we use Strontium , not the old phosphorus standard.

    In our tests it doesn't present a significant difference, is not about time, but the intensity of the light. A brief exposure to a small flashlight is usually enough.


    Glow-on is an enhancement, not substitute for good practices.
    In any case is hard to beat for the price and performance, is better than not having anything. and of course there are plenty of other options from lasers to lamps and of course tritium and scopes and night vision.

    But of course this is a "trick" you can only do with glow-on (option 2)

    repair or enhance your gun sights

    Here are some pics a friend sent me of his work with glow-on. He even did the Magpul logo with glow-on.

    The stuff is "happy meal" cheap, and easy to apply, what is not to like.

    Glow-On video

    Here is a hastily made video, a bit crude, but it shows the basics of the application, I promise a better one soon, (with a real gun).
    So sit back, get some popcorn and enjoy.

    Recent experience

    Recently there was a police chase which ended a few blocks from where we live, It was about 0300 hours and there where about a couple dozen police cars going back and forth some with lights, some with the lights off, I woke up because of the emergency lights coming thru the second floor windows. There were no sirens or any sound, it looked alarming.

    I could see on a field half a click away several patrols trying to illuminate a big area, of course they where looking for someone dangerous.

    The second after I woke up i knew immediately where my pistol was, since I applied a couple of stick-on on the lower part of the magazine, my cell phone, my flashlight, my TV remote, light switches, etc. For the first time since we developed this product i could experience first hand and see with my own eyes the advantage it gives anyone who has it.

    We kept all the lights off but we knew where everything important was, in the case of an invasion or such.

    In the end, the suspect killed himself with his own pistol in a neighbor's backyard fortunately for us didn't that close to our house or our friend's.

    Glow-on might not look like a great deal to some people, but even the small Swiss knife is worth one's life when we have it in the right moment, if one has it.

    Respect Gatopardo

    New Glow-On video

    This is a new Glow-On video. Specifically designed tutorial for our customers who purchased the "Option 1" or paint only purchase option.

    Even though this set of sights have receded dots and the front sight has a small gutter, the pigment is just as efficient over bare flat metal sights as I will demonstrate in a video soon.

    The video is HD so if you use the whole screen you might be able to see the detail better.

    glow in the dark gun sight tutorial

    Here is a small tutorial for the members who purchased the "Option two" thru our website ( glow paint and special self adhesive package).
    I used my Keltec PF 9 to show how to remove the material.

    A couple of important points:

    First:This is my daily carry self defense, I holster it, I carry it in a big pocket, sometimes just inside my belt, the material is intact, for the guys who've asked if it'll endure the abuse the answer is YES, just give it a couple of days before you holster it.

    Second: This is a gun sight enhancer, if you can make it work for you this is all you are going to need and it's good for what it is, in the world of glow material this is the thing to get.

    Make your own glow-dots with Glow-On, a tutorial

    This one is for people who don't like to paint anything or use paint, or are messy using paint, but like to use utility knives or scissors.

    Using only the Glow-On self adhesive one can make hundreds of glow dots for a fraction of the cost.

    They have to be set permanently with colorless nail polish, and you'll need to purchase a button hole punch for the job, is it easy, you bet it is just watch.

    The whole process takes a couple of minutes. No drying period and they are super bright.

    Phosphorescent products need some source of light for a brief period to work, like everything else you have to make it work for you, no magic here.

    Glow-On vs the competition

    We are asked frequently how does Glow-On compare to other phosphorescent pigments.
    Here is a brief video comparing two of the best and the most generic against our paint.

    A few points:
    Our pigment doesn't need a white background to work because is not transparent like the others.
    Glow-On glows brighter at a slightly wavelength, a brighter color due to the technology used.
    For the same reason glows longer.

    Nothing wrong with the other products, they are just designed for a different purpose

    glow-dots

    The options have changed a bit regarding the self adhesive.
    we stopped cutting squares and stripes and added an extra layer of Glow-On to improve the material.

    We've found that is more efficient to cut and measure as we go to avoid waste.
    If one decides to make glow-dots with all the material it is a lot easier if one has a bigger piece than small strips and squares.

    By the way here is a fly by tutorial on how to make dots.
    The adhesive is not strong enough to hold since the surface is so small, but a couple of layers of nail polish later and they'll stay in place.
    For the hardcore gunner, one can use SUPER GLUE GEL To attach them, they'll still have to be covered with transparent nail polish to protect them from grim and such.

    Please keep in mind super glue can get messy in no time, so use the gel type which allows for more working time. If you stick your fingers together, super glue can be removed with nail polish remover.

    Something else to keep in mind in the world of glow, BIGGER IS BETTER, so if you can cram big dots on your sights, by all means do, they'll glow longer.
