Designed for indoor and outdoor applications, ACI glow aggregates absorb and store natural and artificial light energy, from both the sun and artificial lighting. Once the light source is no longer present, ACI's glow pigments begin releasing their stored energy and emit their glow for 6 to 8 hours or longer to provide a self-generating ambient light source.
The glow-in-the-dark aggregates can be fully charged in 30-60 minutes when exposed to natural light or direct sunlight. In interior applications, ACI glow aggregates can be fully energized in 30 to 60 minutes using halogen, fluorescent or incandescent light sources.
The aggregates can be seeded decoratively in a variety of ways, ranging from pool decks, patios, gardens, walkways and parkings and outdoor entertainment areas to kitchen countertops and bathroom vanities.
