Glow in the dark items have been quite popular for decades now. The glow in the dark trick is especially popular in toys and decorations that really make the object stand out, especially in the light dim or dark settings. There is just something about the glow in the dark element that attracts both children and adults to objects that glow in the dark. That is why more and more products are becoming glow in the dark.
How does the “glow” element work?
Phosphors is the main element in products that glow in the dark that give it that special glow. It is a substance that once energised it radiates light. Phosphors is commonly used in television screens, computer monitors, and fluorescent lights.
When it comes to glow in the dark toys, you need to make sure the phosphor used is easily charged with normal light and has a long lasting effect. Two of the most popular phosphor used that have these attributes are Strontium Aluminate and Zinc Sulfide. Zinc Sulfide isn’t as strong as Strontium Aluminate in terms of how long the glow lasts therefore Strontium Aluminate is more commonly used. The phosphor is then mixed with plastic and molded into the shape of the object.
Glow in the dark stickers use a similar approach in which phosphor is used to enable them to glow. Constellations are the most popular type of glow in the dark stickers you can find. They really add a little extra to your room and liven it up when night falls. They help bring the stars inside, giving an aesthetic appeal to the room.
