Photoluminescent paint with effect
Glow in the dark paint and luminous paint works by "absorbing" daylight and artificial white light, and lights up in a greenish, reddish or bluish luminous colour when the room is completely dark.
In other words, the luminescent paint must actually be "charged" with light before it can remain luminescent for a number of hours.
What is luminous paint?
Glow-in-the-dark paint lights up dark environments with shades of green/blue-green. Glow-in-the-dark paint uses a substance called phosphorescent and works by absorbing light, similar to a recharging battery. Daylight/white light "charges" best but blacklight can also be used and the luminescent paint can thus light up by itself as long as other lights are off. Glow in the dark paints come in different colours but have the brightest light with the default colour green/blue-green.
What is the difference between UV paint and luminous paint?
The main difference between UV paint and glow-in-the-dark paint is the way you activate the paint's light effect. UV paints require UV lighting/black light, and luminescent paints activate the light themselves as long as you are in the dark. Hence the name "Glow in the dark".
