Glow-On gun sights paint. Glow in the dark gun sights. Will it glow all night long?

Question: Glow in the dark gun sights. Will it glow all night long?

Answer: Yes it will, a few users might contradict this statement. But somehow things have a way to prove themselves, just spill some Glow-On on your pajamas and you'll find out soon enough if it does glow all night long. It does .
Not only that, you are bound to find out that no mater how many times you wash your pajamas, the glow does not diminish with use.

Of course the glow has a cycle, it starts very bright, it will almost illuminate your whole room. Then fades slowly, all, night, long.

We ship via USPS. We ship every day except Sundays and Holidays.

USPS delivery time in the USA usually takes 2-5 days.

In rare occasions, packages get stuck in big distribution centers or get destroyed in route or are returned if the recipient doesn't have a mail box, etc.
However this is a small percentage and we have been able to overcome all the limitations USPS has, by keeping communication with our customers and keeping tacking numbers.

Gun sights paint: Can you include a small brush in the future?

The applicator included in the package is a bit thick, I used a small brush I had laying around, can you include a small brush in the future?
Thanks for the question.

Small brushes seem useful when you start, but they tend to accumulate the solids inside the bristle and it becomes difficult to have a thin tip to work your gun sights.
There is an easy and quick solution. All we need is a pair of scissors to cut the tip at an angle, like on the sequence that follows:

If the white paint is in good shape just apply a bead over it, just wipe it off with a paper towel and alcohol.
You could remove the paint, if you wish. It's just a n extra step.

Glow-On might not work for your project.
There is usually enough illumination around vehicles to operate door locks and such.
Glow-On is more of a solution for very, very dark places like your bedroom in the middle of the night, etc. TV remotes, alarms, light switches etc. are good candidates.

If you still would like to try, I'd recommend you apply it where it's visible but it won't come into contact with your fingers.
The paint feels dry to the touch, but it will take at least 24 hours for it to harden enough so it wont be accidentally removed.



PM me and I'll send you a sample so you can see how it works, first hand experience is best. Your project is a "maybe it'll work" thing so I cannot in honesty charge you and guarantee it. If it is fishing lures, gun sights, or if you plan to use the self adhesive form on switches, alarms, remotes, etc. I guarantee you you'll be pleased with the results.

Glow-On is a great product but it is not miraculous. It might not work for every project.

if i seal the glow on with a clear coat or fingernail polish would it diminish the glow or the charging capacity?

also not a question but more of a tip, i use to mess with alot of glowing things and also black lights. did you know that if you use a black light tube, bulb, or led. it will super charge any glowing material to the maximum. you as a company could make a good bit of money selling a small keychain with a small single led black light to "insta-charge" the sights to max. it takes less then the time of a cameras flash to charge them. it would also make your product even more "epic" for lack of a better word.
