Visionglow has developed a novel photoluminescent material that can charge in either artificial or natural light and glow for at least 12 hours.

'Our photoluminescent pigments are the most unique formulated pigments of their kind in the world, We've taken the existing technology, which uses strontium materials, and re-invented it', says Dr Barry Rogers, a scientist who serves as Chairman of Visionglow Global. 'We use a new material that has all the benefits of strontium, without the drawbacks.

Safety applications are at the forefront of the company's focus. Post 11th September 2001 there is an increased awareness of the need for improved personal safety and emergency evacuation systems when electricity is not available to light the way. The New York City building code has recently been amended to include the requirement of photoluminescent exit signs and evacuation guidance systems in buildings greater than 75ft in height. The Visionglow pigment can also be combined with fluorescent colours to improve the performance of safety items.
