What is Advanced Photoluminescence Technology®
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.

These aren’t just some glow-in-the dark novelty items; each one of our products can be fully charged in a few minutes by almost any light source — and that includes the sun! As recharging is as simple as letting a Foxfire item sit in the light, there is no need for other any other energy source like electricity and/or an external battery.

Safety is on our minds, safety is in our products. All MN8-Foxfire items are designed and developed to keep people as safe as is physically possible. Since Foxfire is a firefighter-owned company, many of our photoluminescent items have focused on and been integrated into firefighting gear. Having dependable visibility in dangerous situations is of the utmost importance to our fellow firefighters and, therefore, to us.
*The average human eye can see a glow down to about 0.0032 mcd/m2. Full afterglow time is measured to 0.000 mcd/m2
