In low light conditions, it emits yellow-green or blue-green light. Photoluminescent sand is designed for the glass industry and glazing.
In technologies where oxygen is present, photoluminescent sand is particularly suitablefor sintering and coating processes. Photoluminescent sand is able to withstand temperatures up to 1250°Cfor about 30 minutes.
Photoluminescent sand must not be modified mechanically (by grinding, crushing, etc.) since this has negative effects on the photoluminescent properties.
