READY Glow Applications

READY Glow products can be used in various applications including but not limited to the following:

  • Hand-broadcasted/seeded onto concrete surfaces
    similar to seeding colour flakes and recycled glass.
  • Used inside of your formwork by spraying adhesive on the inside of your formwork then seeding with READY Glow stones.
  • Mixed directly into overlay mixes.

In addition, READY Glow can also be:

  • Ground and polished to any level of finish from
    external pathway 100 grit to mirror 3000 grit.
  • Sealed as you would usually seal your concrete
    projects (this product works very well with both water and solvent-based mixes).

Material Profile

READY Glow is a high performance, non-toxic, photo luminescent aggregate specifically formulated for use with decorative concrete.

Non - radioactive

  • Non-toxic and safe for use in all types of environments.

Outstanding luminosity

  • Exposure to 40 seconds of direct sunlight produces an afterglow of over 15+ hrs.
  • Exposure to daylight (indirect sunlight) for 8 minutes produces an afterglow of up to 15+ hrs.
  • Exposure to artificial light such as Halogen or Fluorescent for approximately 10 - 30 minutes produces an afterglow of up to 15+ hours.


  • The luminosity of the aggregates is dependent on actual particle size and can reach an initial intensity burst of 3612 mcd/m2 @ 1 minute and then begin degrading once removed from light source.

Stability of physical and chemical properties

  • READY Glow works between +500 degrees Celsius and -30 Degrees Celsius.
  • It is resistant to high and/or extended exposure to ultraviolet radiation and does not discolour under 300-watt high mercury lamp or 1000 hours at 35 Degrees Celsius -40 Degrees Celsius, 80% humidity.
  • READY Glow is unaffected by most chemicals and performs even in the worst outdoor conditions.
  • Ready Glow stones DO NOT expand or contract in concrete or any other substrate.
