Risk Reactor's CPZN1-061GAL one gallon of a super absorbant glow in the dark water based coating. 

Use the CPZN1-061GAL to create luminous surfaces where an image can be made by creating a shadow. You can also use any light source, such as one of our Black Lights and UV LEDs to write on the fast glow surface. Our CPZN1-06 is a wonderfully fun paint with a unique characteristic of absorbing light and emitting light quickly. Hence, we call this the Fast Glow Paint, which glows a long time but looses it's energy quickly in the beginning allowing you to create multiple shadows. This paint is also used as a safety paint along with our CP2-06 and CP2-10 Glow in the Dark Paints which have very long glow times.

"We use our fast glow CPZN1-06 for our Children's Museum shadow wall. Great product and a life saver. We been buying from Risk Reactor for 20 years and you should too. Thank you guys!"

Harold T. San Diego, California

We engineered this paint to be durable, environmentally friendly, non-radioactive, non-flammable and non-hazardous. It contains less than 60 grams per liter of volatile organic compounds (VOC's) which allows this coating to be used when VOC's are a concern. The film produced after it is fully cured is hard and tough, but yet flexible allowing it to last. The film must be exposed to any light source for a minimum of 14 seconds to rejuvenate the glow (phosphorescent) characteristics. Our paint has been used successfully in directional markers, warehouse floors, egress systems, safety markings, theater steps, emergency exits, walkways, just about anywhere you need a luminous marking. This product can also be used to create fun coatings such as shadow walls, where a strobe light produces a shadow on the coating. A coating that you can write on with a light pen or LED. Applications are endless.

How to Use:
This product can be used on just about any surface. Remove dust, dirt, oils, and other foreign material. To get the maximum glow effect, surface must be primed with a white pigmented primer. Metallic surfaces must be primed with appropriate metal primer. Smooth non-porous surfaces should be abraded for good adhesion. The closer the surface is to white the brighter the phosphorescent color. Black and dark colors tend to absorb light diminishing the phosphorescent effect. The more paint you place on the surface the brighter and longer the glowing effect (up to a point of saturation) so 2-4 coats are recommended. You can use stencil to create accurate markings.

Shadow Wall Quick Glowing Green Effect:

Museums around the world use this to entertain and to teach people about light. Shadow walls are made with the CPZN1-06 and a flash of light. A wall is usually painted with our fast glow CPZN1-06, more coats give the shadow image more clarity. Use a strobe light or any powerful light is used to charge the wall. The light is turned on for a short time while someone is standing between the light and the wall. This causes a temporary shadow to be produced from the person's shadow, which can be repeated as many times as you wish.

You can also do this on a much smaller scale by utilizing the same techniques described here. Great for school projects and science fairs.

You Need:

1. Our short glow zinc sulfide paint CPZN1-06. One gallon covers 350 square feet more or less.

2. Dark area or a wall or drape. Something you can apply the paint to.

3. A light source that you can turn on and off. The stronger the light source the most intense the shadow.

Applications for Water Based Glow in the Dark Paint:

Paint the wall with the CPZN1-06 paint. The more paint usually the better the result. Place the light source facing the wall. Depending on how big the wall is, you might need multiple lights. Have someone stand in between the light source and the wall before putting the light on for second.

The closer to the wall you stand the more detailed the shadow. You can also do this with any light but you will need to leave the light on longer for a similar result. If you do the latter then you will need to remain still white the light is on, otherwise you will not see a distinct shadow.

    The heart of our Science Center's Shadow Wall

    Posted by Peter on 19th Nov 2014

    We developed a PC based shadow wall controller, and chose this paint to do the wall. Works great, nice lime green glow. Come see it at The Science Center of Southern Illinois.

    Works great so far

    Posted by PtG on 24th Mar 2014

    I'm building a shadow wall for a Science Center. So far, I have just painted picture frames for testing. This product works great with normal light or UV. Clearly, you have to take it into a darken area to see the shadow, flash photography doesn't work. You can write on it with a UV or normal flashlight, which is pretty cool.

    It took me 3 coats, at least one applied heavy, by a roller, to get coverage on glass. I suspect their 350-400 sq feet coverage is right, but with 3 coats you are looking 120 to 150 sq feet of real wall space?
