An idea came up into my mind, to produce glow-in-the-dark paint. It is made with the help of luminophore. Do you think it is necessary today? It has an endless variety of usage! You can paint glowing pictures on the T-shirts, you can paint car wheel rims or just paint pictures, which will glow on the wall at night. Just imagine...an ordinary picture in daytime and a glowing one at night. It's fantastic!!! So what do you think? An interesting business?

You could always paint some pictures and see if they sell, however don't use the old paint it contained radium and caused problems to the people that painted it onto the dials of watches. They used to lick the bristles to make them form a neater line.

Yes, I do agree with you. You can find some glowing paints, but they have their own sphere of usage, it is too narrow I guess. As for luminophore, it is used in combination with a lacquer. The lacquer that you use should be appropriate for the type of material you wish to paint: for metal, wood, plastic and the like. So this way you can paint anything you want. And it will glow in the dark! Very Happy

I'm sure that the pictures painted with luminophore will be awesome!!! Just imagine an ordinary picture in daytime, and the same picture that glows in the dark! The fantastic effect! As far as I know luminophore is completely safe material, it doesn't do any harm to the health, cuz it doesn't contain any radioactive isotopes!!!

What is there that can't currently be painted with luminous paint that is going to make people want to buy your product?

Many surfaces can be lent this luminescent effect: metal, wood, brick, concrete sand, cement, façade tiles, gypsum board, polystyrene and others.

I'm still struggling to see what is going to make your business different. Why are people going to buy from you rather than any of the established players already in the industry?

2 things,

1) We sell Glow in the Dark acrylic nail art powders to our nail techs. Clients have normal looking nails in the daytime and at night they glow, we have Green, Yellow, Blue, Turquoise and Purple colours. Younger clients have them for clubbing and can have mad crazy nails for going out, but have sensible nails for their office job.

2) My dad had his own engineering supply company and they used a product called JayLight (I think that;s how you spell it) It was a green Glow In Dark paint that was sold to industry who used it in machine shops and factories to help map out emergency exit routes in case of fire. The paint absorbs light during normal working practice and if there is a fire and the smoke cuts the lights the floors would glow bright green showing people the way out. Very effective.

My point is, rather than market your paint as a gimmick to retail customers like we do with our nail powder, why not market it as a vital safety feature for industry. If your paint can adhere to any surface like you say and it's hard wearing enough your sure to be successful. Wink

Lucky for you I only ask for 1% sales as a commission Laughing

The very statement made by Paul makes it clear

"Why are people going to buy from you rather than any of the established players already in the industry?"
