Glow in the Dark (Luminescent) Vinyl Oralux 9300
Oralux 9300 Glow in the Dark (luminescent) vinyl has a thickness of 6 mil and an off-white glossy finish. As the glow in the dark vinyl is a thicker material than our other products, you need to increase the depth of your blade while cutting (regular Oracal is 3 mil!). It is made from a cadmium-free special PVC film. It has a permanent adhesive and an indoor life of five years, but is not rated for outdoor usage. It is screen print compatible.
This Glow in the Dark vinyl is commonly used to mark danger spots and indoor escape routes (e.g., exit signs). It a super fun product to work with, and as the images show, can be used for both Halloween and non-seasonal crafts and products.
When under normal lighting conditions, the vinyl appears off-white. The vinyl is not self-illuminating so it needs to be "charged". The vinyl can be "charged" by putting it in direct sunlight or under a desk lamp or light. The longer the vinyl is charged, the longer it will glow! When fully charged under fluorescent lighting it has a decay time of 340 minutes. Both the sheet, plant pot, and cat were placed under a desk lamp for 10 minutes before each of the images were taken.
While we do not advocate for putting any vinyl in the dishwasher, if you chose to do so, you are doing so at your own risk. The vinyl is CPSIA compliant, in addition to being lead free, plasticizer-free and phthalate free. The phosphors used in this product to produce the glow effect are non-toxic and non-radioactive. This product is safe for use around children.
The vinyl film is perfect and safe to use in commercial vinyl cutters as well as hobby cutters such as the Silhouette Portrait, Silhouette Cameo, Circuit, Craftwell, Sizzix, Pazzles, Silver Bullet, KNK, Quickutz, Graphtec, BossKut, Xyron, Slice and so on. Even if you do not have a vinyl or craft cutter, you can still use an Exacto knife or scissors to cut the vinyl.
