Can You Stop Glow Sticks Once Activated?

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Some customers have inquired if it is possible to stop a glow stick from activating once part of it has been cracked/activated. The short answer is no. Unless you want to snip off the ends that were cracked and have a safe way to plug the open ends–there is not way to stop a glow stick once it has been activated.

However, you can slow the chemical reaction by placing the glow stick in the freezer. If you have received dead glow products from the store then you should return them immediately for a refund.

How Long Do Glow Sticks and Products Last?

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Did you know….One of the most frequently asked questions from customers is about the product life. How long do glow sticks and other glow light products last? Well that really depends on quality and size. Our glow lights are made from new materials and are expected to last from 4 to 12 hours, or longer after being activated.

This is based on the size and type of product. Some products, such as the hi-intensity emergency sticks are designed to be effective for only 30 minutes after activation, but produce a higher intensity of light during that time.

You can use some tricks to extend the life cycle of glow products so your kids can play, or parties can last, a little longer. Try freezing the glow product so the chemical reaction slows within the tubing. This will elongate the life of your favorite novelty glow toy!

Are Children at Risk Using Glow Sticks?

Monday, May 5th, 2008

Some concerned parents have asked questions about potential goody-bag toys like glow sticks and necklaces. Are they really safe? What happens if a child accidentally opens one of the products? Did you know that lightsticks light necklaces and other glow products are completely safe?

In glow sticks and other glow products we carry, the liquid light source is a non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-caustic, lightweight, windproof, light source. It is not a source of heat or sparks and is sealed within its own flexible plastic container. They are great for use in areas which may contain combustible mixtures of gasses or liquids, when ordinary sources of light might pose an explosion or fire hazard. The manufacturer has tested the products according to the regulations of the Federal Hazardous Substances Act and has determined that the products are non-toxic, nor a corrosive or irritant. They can be safely handled by children of all ages.

If one of the products is damaged fear not, use warm soap to remove from clothes and carpets!

How to Keep Unused Glow Toys Longer
Have you wondered before how long your glow sticks will last? The old trick is to slow the chemical reaction within the glow product by freezing it. But, some people have asked another question: how long will the unused glow toy last in the package? Did you know that studies have shown that if the original outer foil wrapper has not been damaged or the product removed from the wrapper, the products have a shelf life of one to four years, depending on the product. All industrial glow light sticks are expiration date stamped. Some novelty products are also date stamped.
