Super-LumiNova is a brand name under which strontium aluminate based non-radioactive and non-toxic photoluminescent or afterglow pigments for illuminating markings on watch dials, hands and bezels, etc. in the dark are marketed. This technology offers up to 10 times better brightness than previous zinc sulphide based materials.

Besides for timepieces Super-LumiNova is also marketed for application on:
  • Instruments: scales, dials, markings, indicators etc.
  • Scales: engravings, silkscreen-printing
  • Aviation instruments and markings
  • Jewellery
  • Safety- and emergency-panels, signs, markings
  • Aiming posts and
  • Various other parts

Larger markings are visible for the whole night. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any practical aging. Strontium aluminate based pigments have to be protected against contact with water or moisture, since this degrades the light emitting quality.
