BOXHILL's Glow Tumbled Glass is created from a new, multi-activated, highly-efficient, alkaline earth metal aluminate oxide that has been spiked with Europium. It is both chemically and biologically inert. The brightness and duration of the luminescent material we use is more than 10 times brighter than traditional zinc sulfide luminous material. With exposure to daylight or lamplight for about 2 hours, the Glow Tumbled Glass can maintain an afterglow in the dark for about 10-12 hours although the glow does diminish over time. Expert engineering has also enabled our Glass to have excellent water resistance when compared to common aluminate photo luminescent, or to afterglow pigments. This product is also non-radioactive, non-toxic, environmentally-friendly, and it requires no electricity.
BOXHILL's Glow Tumbled Glass needs only two things -- light, so it may ‘charge’ up a glow, and darkness, so that you can see its beauty. It is important to note that a greater exposure to light will result in a stronger glow. Similarly, the Glass will appear to have stronger glow in a darker area. Buy with confidence -- these remarkable pieces will retain their glowing properties for over 20 years of use! This product is considered to be ambient light and is compatible with night vision. The Glass is intended for use in the dark, however, if it has been exposed to direct sunlight, it will be visible in dimly-lit situations for about the first hour.
Glow Tumbled Glass is meant to enhance landscapes and to provide a soft glow. It is not a substitute for the lumen output of a streetlight, or landscape lighting, so please consider your overall landscape plan when mapping out your usage.
