Phosphorescent Pigments

Lumilux® Effect Blue SN-F (50036)

Main use: Afterglow plastic sheets, screen printing inks, injection molding.

Lumilux SN-series are phosphorescent pigments that store energy when exposed to the sun or an artificial light source, and emit light long after the source has been removed. They are strontium aluminate-based, which feature significantly higher initial brightness and longer afterglow periods than zinc-sulfide based products. They meet UL and CE safety standards.

Honeywell Lumilux™ pigments have been a mainstay of the safety and security industry for more than four decades, consistently meeting the everchanging landscape of rigorous brightness standards required in safety, signage and authentication applications.

We offer the industry’s largest portfolio of phosphorescent and fluorescent pigments and taggants that can be used in a wide variety of applications, including:

• Safety and signage
• Automated sorting processes
• Watch dials
• Injection-molded toys and novelty items
• Paints and coatings
• Authentication applications
• Other specialty applications
