not a question but I should say I bought the green/orange combo pack.

I have done all my weapons, some of my buddys weapons, my brothers weapons, had tons of waste especially with mixing orange because I get mix happy... my sister painting her fingernails with it...

I STILL have more than half of each left from what I looked at as "tiny vials".

also I should say I firmly believe its a great improvement to a firearm that doesn't have a chance of aftermarket sights. I recent got a quirky little 9mm and the orange is an amazing improvement over the flat black folded stamped steel that got lost amongst the rest of the flat black of the weapon.

its not perfect but given the right circumstances its "perfect".

it is what it is. I have had it for several months and I like it.

Glow-On was create by firearm enthusiasts for firearms enthusiasts.

I've used your product successfully on all my guns. Would you recommend your product for wristwatch hands too?
Glow-On is will work just fine on big clocks, but it's a bit coarse for the delicate hands of a wristwatch.
Wristwatch lumen is made with finely ground material and for the same reason the glow is dim in comparison.
Glow-On wouldn't go thru a fine nozzle applicator for the same reason, so we ship it in glass vials.

We know for a fact, everything attached to a firearm will go thru some degree of abuse.

A careful selection of material, binders and glow materials has taken place here.

A few particulars about Glow-On

Quote:
Hello,
I am considering using your product, but, I do have a question. How long will the
paint 'glow' after it has been applied to an aluminum surface? Indefinitely?
I look forward to your response.
First I'll say that the product will stick to aluminum or other metal, just make sure it's completely clean.

The material will glow intensely after it has been exposed to a good light source.
A small LED tactical light is the best alternative and a few seconds (4-5) will work great.

The glow fades after some time and eventually it can only be perceived in complete darkness.

However, a quick exposure to the lamp will bring the glow to a very bright level again.
This cycle can be repeated indefinitely for a period of 15 years.

One small vial is good for 20 firearms at least

This is a great new trend.

Upgrade standard white dots sights with Glow-On 10/10, the original.
It takes a few minutes and just a few bucks.

One small vial is good for 20 firearms at least
So line 'em up.

This is fast drying paint.
20-30 minutes and it's dry to the touch, guaranteed.
It will cure in 2-3 day to a very hard consistency.
After you use your vial ad a few drops of water and close it tight.

How to apply gun sights paint.

Quote:
Hello, could you please explain briefly how should I apply your product o my sighs?
Here is a sequence I put together.
-Basically you take the wooden applicator, or a tooth pick or a stick, etc.
-Then after you stir your Glow-On with the wooden stick, you pick a small droplet and just lay it on your sights.
Let it dry and repeat this procedure until you have a nice, thick enough, dot.
Let it dry for a few hours and the put a layer of transparent nail polish over it.

Let it cure for a couple of days before you holster your firearm.

Glow-On on rifle sights.

Just in case, here's a set of rifle sights.
Same basic procedure.

Red Bubble Gum color gun sights?

Quote:
I was planning to buy some of your red paint on ebay but couldn't find it????? instead found a bubble gum red paint why the change? Is this a different color, thanks.
Is the same color, this is what some of our customers call them and we found appropriate to just rename them altogether.

These are not a "fire engine red" and "traffic cones" orange, they are really tints of the color, a pastel, a bit washed out you might say.



This is approximately what they look like:

Glow-On: why is it 10/10???

Quote:
How exactly do you give a glow value to your product? like 10/10, 9/10, 8/10, etc. I've never seen this on any other glow product I've ever found, just curious


Actually is very simple, so simple it's amazing nobody thought of it before:

Glow is light.
White light can be divided in colors, like rainbow.
At the center, is where the most visible colors sit: Yellow and green.
The Original Glow-On is at the center with a lot of white light in it , so it's a 10 out of 10 or, 10/10.
Yellow sits to one side and green at the other side, those are 9/10.

Orange and red are next to yellow on one side as the light fades. Those are 8/10 and 7/10.

Aquas and Blues sit after green in the opposite direction as the light fades. Those are 8/10 and 7/10.
Aqua is a special case because it contains yellow light in it so its a 9/10

So that's why Glow-On Yellow and Green are so popular, because they have a nice visible color and respective glow.

Here's an example so you can see what I mean:



You'd be in trouble trying to fin a very bright blue or red light.
