This is a very dense phosphorescent paint.hillman said:What's the duration of the phosphorescence after lights-out?
The initial glow is very intense and fades after time.
The first 15 minutes is very bright, brighter than tritium indeed.
To make the sights glow a brief exposure to an LED lamp is necessary.
After an hour or so the glow can only be appreciated if your eyes have been under darkness.
Under this conditions, the sights (make them big) can be see 'till early in the morning.
There's some confusion abut this, some users will flash the sights, put them in a closet, go have dinner and come back later and they don't see anything....
If you read the first paragraph, you know why, yes?
That's right: If they come from a brightly illuminated room into darkness they are basically blind....even if there is a glow you can't see it.
However, no problem, just flash it again, you are ready to go.
You've guessed it...Strategy is foremost.
