Soluble powder properties:

  • 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.
  • Trace amounts sprinkled on a surface will be high visible under black light yet completely invisible under normal light.
