Phosphorescent Pigments

Lumilux® Effect Green N-E (50915)

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

Lumilux N-series products 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 zinc sulfide-based, and meet UL and CE safety standards.
