We have been throwing the word “photoluminescent” around and realize people may not know what we’re talking about. Photoluminescence, which is light emission after the absorption of photons, is added to MN8-Foxfire® products through sophisticated processes including and involving the suspension of photoluminescent crystals called Advanced Photoluminescence Technology .
Because these crystals absorb photons, they can absorb light and store energy acting like a battery. In darkness, they glow brightly as they are releasing stored energy as light.
Advanced Photoluminescence Technology is virtually the highest output glow-in-the-dark technology available on the market. It is not just the highest grade photoluminescence pigment but also the propriatary application of this pigment in various products. Some of these materials initially can emit light output over 1,000+ mcd/m2 and can continue to emit light up to 80 hours* when fully charged. This technology has been tested by UL to meet or exceed the ASTM E2072/3 international standards for photoluminescence safety materials.
