This is the answer I was looking for. I apologize for my question not being more specific.

Thank you for your time to address this and for a wonderful product.

I received my Original Glow-On last Saturday and have since put it on 3 pistols.

1 Glock 21 .45, 1 XDm 3.8 .40, and 1 Davis .380 as well as several other things around my house.

It looks GREAT, performs well and very easy to work with.

My only regret is not getting a few more colors.

Thank you again!

A question for Glow-On

Quote:
I saw a kit with strips and squares is that still available? And If so in blue too?


The small strips and squares were phased out by he self adhesive sheets we are shipping with some our products.

So now one gets a bit more than before at the same price.
We are constantly trying o improve our products looking for better materials and as a consequence our paint is 20% brighter than it was originally.

And If so in blue too?


We are producing blue paint at the present, the blue glow sheet is in the plans

Before:


After:

How heat resistant is the original glow-on?

I was thinking of putting some around the base of the headlight bulbs in my car so that once I turn the headlights off they will glow.

Will Glow-on hold up under this type of heat or will it burn or smoke?

Thanks for such interesting question. In fact we've tried something similar with small LED lamps.
Glow-On Original will stand the temperatures of the sights mounted over a hot barrel.
I think, however, that the temps on a headlights lamp will be too high if the paint is too close.
I any case a bit further away from the lam should work and it will create a real cool effect.
Here are a few photos to illustrate the effect on a small LED lamp:




A small tutorial is in order, I'll oblige later today

Glow-On: If like me, you having problems reading small text. Read on.

For the last couple of year I noticed a couple of tendencies befalling me. The first one is the difficulty to focus on small text when I'm reading. The second one which is a consequence of the first one it the tendency to constantly check reading glasses when I go to the store to see if my vision improves, should I decide to purchase the aforementioned devices, which I won't because I have to admit I'm still on denial about the whole thing.

In any case, this situation translates into extra time trying to focus on my gun sights, especially the ones with small 1/16" little dots.
To remedy this, I use Glow-On to make those dots bigger and the self adhesive to cover whole sights like the photo below. The result is a bit unorthodox, but I'm not a purist, life being as eclectic as it is, I don't have a choice.

So if you guys are in the same boat:
Make the markings bigger, it helps.
And since there is no need for a white base coat before the luminescent paint application, the process is absolutely painless.

Folks this is some good stuff.

Quote:
Gato sent me a sample of this stuff when he first got on this forum. I applied it exactly like he said to do. I was surprised on how well it worked. Not to long after I decided to move up into the open division so I got me a couple of STI race guns and the old 45 ACP went into the safe never to be seen again. It most have been in a safe well over 18 months and today I took it out just to tell it that I still loved it. I had it out for about a half hour and when I went to put it back in the safe I noticed that the glow on still worked like it did when I first put it on. Folks this is some good stuff. You cant go wrong here.

Good news and good to hear from you dear friend, is good to know things are working out for you, please don't hesitate to contact me if you need Glow-On for you or your pals, I mean it


On the other side of the spectrum :

Quote:
Hello,t his flourescent paint only glows for less than 15 minutes. I have tried different size dots and all fade quickly. Pretty crappy results.
Inside of every pecan nut there is a nice treat, or a Pecan tree full of treats.

Fact is, very few things will work right from the get go. Like a pair of new boots, one has to figure it out

It takes awhile to figure out how this paint will work for you.
In a world of instant gratification, we are used to instant gratification. Even seemingly instant gratifiers like lasers and red dots will take some time until one can match the mark with the shot.
Glow-On is old school and as such it requires some time to "discover it".

True the initial glow is so strong that can be disheartening to see it fading away.
However, the initial glow is just that, initial glow, it will level to a faint glow which is where this product excels and in deep darkness it hard to beat because it will not negate you natural adaptation and night vision.


The big surprise is really how well Glow-On performs during the day hours, easing the transition between sun lit areas and shady areas. An this is because Glow-On "glows" during the day too.

So if any of you run one of those tracks where you move from one position to another and shoot, and one of the stops is coming from under a car, from inside a drain duct or such, give Glow-On a try.

Glow-On gun sights paint is easy to apply

On the pictures below one can get the idea about how volumetric Glow-On is when it's been applied to a set of gun sights.
A thin application might not yield the best results.

Yes it can be done...with Glow-On

The vast majority of firearms sold in the USA come equipped with standard sights. Nothing special, it's either white dots or mil specs bare iron sights.
If one wanted d to customize the sights, it'd involve the expense of buying a new set and paying a hefty chunk to a specialist to get the job done.
We at Glow-On offer to put in the hands of every gun owner in the USA the possibility, if even modest, to create the favorite configuration one desires on any pistol sights available, new and old.

Tiny dots? Make them bigger
No dot? No problem put some dots on.
Cover the whole sight back and front if you so desire.
Because it can be done. With Glow-On.
