Glow in the dark items have been quite popular for some time now. This effect is especially popular with toys and decorations. The glow really makes an object stand out, especially in the light dim or dark settings. There is just something about the glow-in-the-dark element that attracts both children and adults. That’s why more and more products are becoming glow in the dark.
HOW DOES THE “GLOW” ELEMENT WORK?
Phosphors are the main element in products that glow-in-the-dark. It is the chemical that gives an item that special glow. It is a substance that once energised it radiates light. Phosphors is commonly used in television screens, computer monitors, and fluorescent lights.
When it comes to glow-in-the-dark toys, you need to make sure the phosphor used is charged with normal light and has a long lasting effect. Two of the most popular phosphors used that have these attributes are Strontium Aluminate and Zinc Sulfide. Zinc Sulfide isn’t as strong as Strontium Aluminate in terms of how long the glow lasts therefore Strontium Aluminate is more commonly used. The phosphor is then mixed with plastic and molded into the shape of the object.Glow-in-the-dark stickers use a similar approach in which phosphor is used to enable them to glow.
Constellations are the most popular type of glow in the dark stickers you can find. They really add a little extra to your room and liven it up when night falls. They help bring the stars inside, giving a magical and dreamy aesthetic to the room.
If you are really looking to add something special to either your or your kid’s room then we really think you should consider:
LIDERSTAR GLOW IN THE DARK STARS WALL STICKERS
Wonderful design, actually looks like stars on the ceiling
Blends well with the ceiling when the lights are on, doesn’t stick out
Here and there people have said online that the glow can fade. We, however, had no issues with them.
The Liderstar Glow in The Dark Stars are just what you need to really brighten up your nights. You no longer have to stare up at the boring white ceiling as you doze off to sleep. With these stickers, it actually feels like you are sleeping under a dazzling sky, gazing upon the beautiful stars. These stars look realistic. They aren’t the typical five pointed side stars you find in a child's room. These are more circular, and look like the actual stars you would see if you were to walk out at night.
The stickers have a strong hold, once you apply them to the ceiling they only come off when you decide to remove them. This is unlike the cheaper stickers you find that peel off on their own. These stars also can be energised quite fast. Within just 5 minutes of exposure to light, you can turn the lights off and watch them glow. Not only are these stickers wonderful for your kid’s room but they can also add a romantic atmosphere in your own room. At its low price, these star constellation stickers are definitely ones you should give a try.
It is easy to get tricked into buying glow in the dark stickers that either don’t stick well or glow for a long period of time. It is important that you make sure that the phosphors element within the sticker is one that lasts. Not only that, if you truly want to get the constellation effect, make sure you get rounded stars rather than those five sided pointed stars. They make a big impact on the aesthetics of the room.
