To emphasize the individuality of your space with bright colors, you can use glowing paints. Fluorescent formulations are suitable for many objects and materials.
The ability to glow is possessed by special pigments that accumulate ultraviolet light from any source, and in the dark, release it, producing a glow.
These substances are called luminophores.
These chemical elements have strong bonds.
They cannot be destroyed, not only physically, but also with the use of chemicals.
Interesting! The phosphor retains its ability to accumulate light photons with their subsequent release for more than 30 years.
On their basis, by mixing, luminous paints of various composition and color are obtained.
In total, two types of such luminous dyes are known:
Pigment with phosphorus was widely used to designate the dials of devices that were used at night, for watches, in the manufacture of items for souvenirs, in the military industry.
With further study of the effect of phosphorus and its vapors on the human body, it was recommended to stop the release of the phosphorus element.
Completely harmless substances for living beings and plants.
Allocated rims, calipers, moldings, bumpers.
The luminous substance is also used in the manufacture of workwear. It is applied to the stripes to indicate that a person is in sight.
Suitable for any surface. In the daytime, paint is not noticeable on the surface, but in the dark it begins to emit light. Such a composition can be applied to items with an existing pattern.
They are used in saunas, when illuminating pools.
Luminescent paints as an object have many positive sides, but the cost of the finished composition is very high. The ability to make such a paint with your own hands exists, even if there is no deep knowledge of chemistry. The quantity offered for sale is sometimes more than is required at the moment.
Here are some options for making glowing paint at home.
Obtained for this purpose in the required amount
The need to use this substance is due to the use of a phosphor in powder, and this will lead to an increased density of the product,
Pour varnish in the required amount into the glass container. Add 30% of the amount of the main component, luminescent powder to it and stir thoroughly. Then add a little thinner, 1% of the total paint volume, to get a more liquid composition.
In the case of a project in color, the color scheme is applied.
All the necessary components are purchased from the pharmacy.
In everyday life, a light antiseptic for external use,
In a 50 ml container with water. the coniferous concentrate dissolves.
Boric acid 2 grams is placed in a metal scoop. Then a coniferous solution is gradually added to the acid.
The scoop is placed over the fire. As the liquid boils away, a new batch of extract is added dropwise to the solution until the liquid ends.
Attention! In the thickened solution, bubbles form during boiling, they must be pierced with a toothpick.
When the liquid runs out, and the crust begins to melt, it is necessary to cool the resulting product. Then it is ground into powder, it is a phosphor.
Then it is added to colorless varnish, paint or water.
Taking into account that the luminescent pigment is not harmful to health, but it is part of aggressive chemical mixtures. Therefore, it is necessary to use luminous paints in protective clothing, in a well-ventilated area, observing all safety rules when working with chemicals.
