This ball glows in the dark. The luminous coating absorbs light (daylight or artificial light) and releases it in the dark. The light output depends on the time that the ball is exposed to the light. As the top layer wears with use, the light emission will reduce.

Another name for glow in the dark is phosphorescence or fluorescence. It simply says that the product absorbs the light and releases it in the dark. This can be done with phosphorus, but also with newer chemical compounds. It needs to be very dark to get a good effect. If it is not dark enough, the product won't light up. The glow time depends on the workable substence in the material and the amount of light stored in the product. This may vary from a few minutes to a few hours.
PAY ATTENTION! If it isn't dark enough the Glow in the dark will not work properly. It really needs to be very dark to get a good effect. Otherwise it won't light up!
