Glow paint into plastic?
« on: 09/25/18 18:02 UTC »
Is there any do’s or don’ts as far as puttting stuff into plastic and injecting? I have some paint that is white and glows different colors. Curious to see if it would work or not. Having a hard time finding any information on anything of that sort of.

It may work temporarily but will more than likely fade quickly due to lack of pigments in paint. The UV rays will probably deteriorate it rapidly. Just a guess though plus it will probably never cure and has moisture in it so it could be explosive if added to the plastic and heating it up.

Glow powders clump when add to Plastic and you don’t need much I’ve found the when you first hit them with a LED light the fish won’t touch it until it’s just got a slight glow to it. I have had better and consistent results using UV powder and as with the glow you need very little.
