What Are Glow Sticks With Tinted Casings?

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

There has been a lot of talk on different websites about glow sticks manufactured with tinted casings. What are tinted casings? The manufacturer makes light sticks with colored plastic to produce colors that use red. Most of the time purple, orange, red, pink, and blue is manufactured with tinted casings due to licensing issues with the red dye patent.

As we know the color red is used in small portions to make many other colors. In this case one company has patented red dye for glow sticks in the United States. In order to avoid having to pay to use the patent for the red dye Chinese manufacturers use tinted casings.

What does all this mean for the consumer? Glow sticks manufactured with tinted casings have an inferior glow. Our light sticks do not use tinted casings. We only sell premium quality glow products using clear plastic tubing.

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.
