  5. Acetone soluble powder: UVXPBR - Fluoresces Bright Red  Our brightest powder.
  6. Toluene soluble powder: UVXPBB - Fluoresces White / Blue
  7. Non-Soluble white powder: UVLWG - Fluoresces Green
  8. Non-Soluble white powder UVLWR - Fluoresces Red

Shortwave - (254nm)

  1. Non-Soluble white powder: UVSWR.  Fluoresces Red.  Will not fluoresce under a normal black light.  You can see this powder with our FlashUV7 shortwave filtered light.
  2. Non-Soluble white powder: UVSWG.  Fluoresces Green.  Will not fluoresce under a normal black light.  You can see this powder with our FlashUV7 shortwave filtered light.

These powders can be used to:

bullet Make paints, inks and dyes
bullet As an anti-theft invisible tracing powder
bullet Hazardous material training substitute
bullet Leak tracing

Soluble powder properties:

bullet Can be mixed in greater than a 1000 : 1 weight ratio.  For example, 1 gram of of UVPW can be mixed with 1 liter of water.  Resultant mix will appear perfectly clear under normal light, but will be highly fluorescent under black light.
bullet Trace amounts sprinkled on a surface will be high visible under black light yet completely invisible under normal light.
bullet Additional information on our UVXPBR and UVXPBB powders can be seen on our Ultra-Visibility Powder page.

If you need a highly fluorescent, high stable visible water soluble powder, please look at our UVHG powder.
