Honeywell Lumilux™ pigments have been a mainstay of the safety and security industry for more than four decades, consistently meeting the everchanging landscape of rigorous brightness standards required in safety, signage and authentication applications.

These are glow in the dark pigments which can absorb energy when exposed to sun or an artificial light source and emit light over a period of time after the source has been removed. Honeywell offers phosphorescent products with two different chemistries designed to meet Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standards:

  • Lumilux® N: Zinc sulfide-based products
  • Lumilux SN: Strontium aluminate pigment products, which feature significantly higher initial brightness and longer afterglow periods than Zinc sulfide-based products
