Perhaps you considered it already, but I recommend using GITD tape instead, easier to apply, and a very even illumination. Only downside: it is vinyl so it may deform when it gets really hot.

Strontium Aluminate in a large particle size glows best i think but they’re always looking for better improved stuff. Mix with a good quality clear resin.
When mixing i add enough powder to make the mix very thick, maybe 50/ 50 mix or so.

Green glows brighteset/ longest etc…

.

The vinyl tape works very well too, i used some on my Meteor under the bezel

Sorry can’t help with suppliers in your area though

No idea how the international issues work out, but I used GITD paint from glow-on.com to do this:

They sell through Amazon in the US, so maybe they do over your way too.

How long does this stuff last?

Quite a while, especially since its painted into a ~3000 lumen triple. Just like any other GITD stuff the brightest glow fades off in a few minutes but the residual glow lasts for a while. I’m sorry I don’t have specifics but I’ve never timed it.

I see… the website says the individual charges will last for hours for up to 15 years. Looks interesting.
