Glow-in-the-dark exterior paint is commonly used to create driveway markers and illuminate signs, brighten pathways, and add decorative flair to outdoor seating and entertainment areas. It is also used to paint rocks and flower pots, which serve as "night lights" around pools and in gardens.
Typically, glow-in-the-dark paint consists of layers of glow pigment, a clear charging layer, and a bright white reflective layer to maximize the full glowing potential. It is commonly utilized as an accenting tool in gardens and around decks or patios, and as a safety precaution to mark driveways and stairs.
Glow-in-the-dark paint is charged by the sun during daylight hours, and at night, stored light is projected outwards to create a glowing effect, which typically lasts between six and 12 hours, depending on the brand.
