Glow in the dark parties are amazing, as all kinds of glow in the dark clothes keep fascinating you. Everyone in the party looks so bright-colored and dazzling even under the darkness. But do you know how to make clothes glow in the dark? First of all, you need to know what makes fabric glow in the dark. Generally, the material that makes fabric glow in the dark is glow in the dark powder. It is a photluminescent material that can abosrb light and then emit light automatically in the dark. With glow in the dark powder, to make glow in the dark clothes is not a very hard task. Today, let’s learn about how we applied the photoluminescent material to the fabric.
The first step is to select the right type of glow in the dark powder. According to the property, the powder can be divided into water-solubility and oil-solubility. If you use the water-soluble dye, you must choose the water-soluble powder. If you use the oil-soluble dye, the luminescence of the powder will be lost. Besides, the powder differs from its coarseness or fineness. It is better to choose the powder that is more than 500 mesh.
The second step is to select glow in the dark clothes dye. You should note that the glow in the dark powder is alkaline. So the dye for glow in the dark clothes or other auxiliary materials must be neutral or alkaline. If you use the wrong type of glow in the dark clothes dye, it may lead to an abnormal reaction.
Third, the right type of fabric is also necessary. The more sparse material, such as polyester fabric, can better absorb glow in the dark powder. So the glow in the dark effect can be much more notable. In addition, the ratio of glow in the dark powder to dye is 10% to 30%
After these preparations, you can start to make the glow in the dark fabric.
First of all, dye the fabric of the right color and dry it naturally. Add the glow in the dark powder and water into a dye vat. The ration of glow in the dark powder to water should be 10% to 30% and then mix and stir. According to the fabric you choose, heat the dye vat, and maintain the temperature for about 1 hour. Later, take out the fabric of the vat and wash off the powder on its surface with water. Similarly, let it get dry naturally.
The last step is to apply the fixing agent. Then, boil the fabric at a temperature of 80 ℃ for 30 minutes. In the end, dry it naturally again, and the glow in the dark fabric is done.
