Surface finish: We have optimized our manufacturing process to provide the finest uniformity and surface finish possible, however there may be small inclusions or scratches in the final product that are unavoidable during the manufacturing process. This will have no effect on the performance of the product, and will not be visible during the glow effect.

The process used to provide the desired glow effect is based on a charge/discharge cycle. You must first charge the Embrite™ rod with light, which is then stored and slowly discharged. In order to achieve the best possible results from the material, please review the following tips regarding light exposure and charging times.

Embrite is the cutting edge of resin based phosphorescent composite material available today. This proprietary material is manufactured using a trade secret process and is the brightest glowing material available anywhere on the planet, ensuring we provide the brightest glow rod possible. The rod itself charges most effectively when exposed to the UV portion of the light spectrum. Sunlight does an excellent job as a charging source, as well as UV lights and CFL bulbs but the material will also absorb an appreciable charge when exposed to indoor room light. Increased exposure time to a light source will increase the initial brightness of the glow and extend the time the material remains glowing. The brighter the charging source, the brighter the rod will glow!

Embrite that is charged in ordinary sunlight or room light for an extended period will have a noticeable glow when the lights are turned off, and will diminish gradually over the course of several hours until the energy it stored while charging is totally depleted. Although the glow intensity will fade considerably over a long duration of time, it is not uncommon to still see a recognizable glow after 8-12 hours, especially with dark-adapted vision in a completely dark environment. This charging and discharging cycle can be performed an infinite number of times.

It is important to note however, that if you view the material in normal room light IT WILL NOT GLOW! It must be dark in order to see the glow effect. This may seem obvious, but the brighter the ambient light is, the lower the intensity of the Embrite™ glow. Conversely, the darker the ambient room light is, the brighter the glow effect will appear. If you view Embrite™ outside at night, it will not be as bright if you view it on a lighted city street as compared to a dark country road. These distinctions are important to clarify, in order to accurately represent your expectations of Embrite™

Embrite™ is a resin based phosphorescent composite material, and is easily cut to desired lengths. You can use a standard hacksaw to cut the rods, which leaves a relatively smooth cut edge. It can be sanded to eliminate any rough edges or cuts, but you should avoid any modification to the finished, outer diameter. Any dust or material scrap resulting from cutting or modification can be easily discarded, as Embrite™ is essentially non-toxic in its finished state. However we do not recommend ingesting the material either orally or from breathing any dust created during the cutting process. We therefore suggest that you wear protective eyewear and avoid breathing any dust particles during the modification process.

Shipping Times

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current logistics delays, shipping times may take longer than expected. This is especially true for International shipments, where delivery times can take weeks longer than usual. This is beyond our control, and we ask that you please be patient with expected deliveries until shipping companies get back to a more "normal" schedule.

We make every effort to process orders within one working day, however there may be slight delays depending upon the number of orders we receive, holiday periods and available staffing resources. Typically we will process all orders within no more than 2 working days.

Shipping times (from the time the package is dropped off at the carrier) will vary depending upon the carrier, method of shipment and destination. For example USPS Domestic First Class Mail should take between 2-3 days, but we have seen instances of 5-7 days. Domestic Priority Mail should take 1-2 days, but can take anywhere from 1-4 days. Domestic Express Mail should take one day, but that is only if your processed order is delivered to the post office before the cutoff time (typically 12:00 noon). Also keep in mind that weather and travel distance can have an effect on delivery times.

International shipments have even more variables that must be considered. A package sent by USPS First Class International can take anywhere from 1-3 weeks, sometimes longer depending upon the country. International shipments have the potential of being delayed by Customs, as well as having additional taxes or fees levied on a package. These are out of our control, and we advise that you become familiar with your specific country's shipping regulations to understand the impact to your shipment.
