  • Silkscreen ink - high-quality ultraviolet curing screen ink that our customers may use for their own production of photoluminescent products

How to compare test-results from suppliers of photoluminescent products
Metal Safe Sign makes products for real-life applications, not for laboratory tests. We therefore test our products in normal lighting conditions (e.g. 25 lux) in order to make sure our products still pass the necessary requirements for saving lives. Ask other suppliers of the same and ask for their measurements at normal light instead of 1000 lux which is done in the DIN 67510 measurements (the 1000 lux measurements are usually the test-results one receives).

Third generation photo luminescent paint now available: Re-Light
Metal Safe Sign's third generation high-quality photo luminescent paint is now available for our customers. This is a new development based on the high performance MSS-strontium aluminate pigments and a new, high tech epoxy binder. The binder system contains no solvents or allergenic components and has very good adhesion to most common building materials. Ideal for Low Location Lighting (LLL) in crew quarters, engine rooms, public buildings, tunnels and other enclosed areas. The EG 75 will glow with a strength of 600 millicandela/m2 after 10 minutes when fully charged with 1000 Lux and be visible in a dark room for more than 100 hours if applied in thicker layers (>1 kg/m2 ) (Read more)

Water penetration in photo luminescent products
Metal Safe Sign has developed a new pigment that prevents water penetration (in e.g. humid and damp areas like tunnels etc), thus avoiding de-lamination of PL-signs & LLL-products often found in most of the available photo luminescent signs, paints etc on the market. Metal Safe Sign uses these pigments in our brand new “Safety Way Guidance System” products, produced with our “Encapsulated, Strontium Aluminate, Phosphorescent Pigments.” The pigment has our highest afterglow properties!

Ceramic tiles with excellent photo luminescent properties
Ceramic tiles which can be used in already existing ceramic arrangements.
Ceramic tiles for use in e.g. underground areas, subways, indoor areas and more. The tiles will, during normal light conditions provide passengers, visitors etc guidance through its green color, while during power black-outs or smoke-filled conditions, provide wayfinding possibilities for due to its phenomenal photo luminescent properties.
