How much Glow powder

Postby aulrich » Mon Feb 05, 2018 10:08 am

Would adding a teaspoon of glow powder per cup be a good starting point for adding glow powder to plastisol.

Not the same product, but judging by the MSDS it's the same class of powder so I was figuring it would be close enough for a starting point.

OK, so you are using the Strontium based glow powders. That helps some. It is a lot stronger then the Zinc based materials.

I am sure others can help more because I normally airbrush the stuff on hard baits, and I have not personally used it for soft baits, but........

I think you need about a half tsp per cup. So, you should be fine with 1 tsp. What I suggest is mixing about a 1/4 cup of clear Alumisol with 1/8 tsp and test it. Add more if you need to.

Sorry, I wish I could be more helpful, and I am sure Mike or Larry will be on soon.

I think that will be more than enough. The glowing lizards I make for my grandkids glow all night with about a tsp per cup.
Best results is to dust the mold as well. doing that may eliminate need to mix in plastic.
good luck

Just to let you know 1 tsp per cup is fantastic, the glow on a fresh charge is pretty much nuclear , long lasting as well.
