The potential market Photoluminescent material is huge

As in the next few years and even decades the acceleration of our country highway traffic construction, the implementation of the strategy of urbanization and urbanization, the 2008 Olympic Games to be held in Beijing, China's openness to further expand, the tourism industry "cake" bigger and people for the fashion pursuit of colorful life, Photoluminescent material in our country and the world market development prospect is good.

The expert introduction of institute of science and technology of Chinese academy of sciences says, noctilucent material basically includes Photoluminescent film, noctilucent printing ink, noctilucent marking paint, noctilucent cloth, noctilucent leather, noctilucent ribbon, noctilucent security silk weave. Noctilucent materials can noctilucent, mainly most of the noctilucent materials contain a kind of high refractive index glass beads. it is because of its existence, the human light by the original way of reflection back to the source, the formation of regression reflection phenomenon.

According to the position of glass beads in Photoluminescent materials. It can be divided into two types: exposed type and flat top type. Exposed means that the glass beads are located on the most surface of luminous materials, and the beads are in direct contact with air. Ceiling type refers to the glass beads sat on a transparent resin, resin is exposed to air, good weatherability, such materials can be reflected light, the surface is not easy to stick dust, rain is not affected, but the structure is complex, the technological requirements of the equipment are high, the main products are all kinds of luminous lamination, the luminescent materials used on the highway that belong to this type.

At present, the application of Photoluminescent materials is mainly concentrated in two major market areas, one is the planned special market, and the other is the civil market. At present, the planned special market has formed a considerable scale, and the civil market has a huge potential, which is favored by the luminescent material industry giants such as the world's luminescent material pioneer 3M of the United States.

Alleged plan special market, it is to point to according to national directive code commonly, the domain that must use luminous material, if public security, traffic, sanitation branch staff works uniform, highway sign, sign, mark line, the dress of the field work personnel such as mine, railroad, belt, etc.

Photoluminescent paint including road signs luminous paint, luminous paint regression. The sign of traditional materials (hot melt paint, cold spray paint) not only need to allocate a lot of artificial work, and prone to paint off phenomenon, do not have luminous performance, in the fog rain on the ground, need a strong light barely discernible, and return to the luminous coating is to point to in ordinary paint spray surface covered a layer of glass beads, it not only overcome the defects, the use of safe driving with the protection and the driver.

In 1998, China's highway reached 8,733 km, the mainline or national highway 140522 km, 20 million vehicles, the annual need for luminous paint 8,000 tons, luminous ink 2,000 tons, the total output value of 200 million yuan. Meanwhile, statistics from the ministry of traffic safety show that in 1998, 601,471 people died in traffic accidents in major countries in the world, while 78,067 people died in China alone, ranking first in the world. According to comprehensive analysis, traffic accidents in major cities are significantly higher at night than in the daytime, and the peak of accidents is from 8 to 10 PM, one of the reasons is the poor visibility on the road. The emergence of luminous materials solved the problem of "seeing" and "being seen".

Experts have pointed out that the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, for Beijing and the major domestic central cities and tourism cities, is a chance to attract foreign tourists and show their best image. And set a good direction sign, novel and beautiful name marks, lively tourist scenic spots, bright traffic signs and marking is one of the most effective way to the station, all these make every corner of the city not only includes the concept of safety warning, but also makes the driver in the numerous and complicated traffic environment with the right guidance, and to effectively display the image of the city and the city management ability to produce good social benefits. And this demand is bound to drive the development of luminous material market, become a new economic growth point. Taking Beijing street famous brand renewal as an example, Beijing public security traffic management bureau implemented street famous brand renovation project. Due to domestic quality and technical defects, this project was undertaken by 3M company, which alone won millions of yuan. It is conceivable that the market prospect of luminous coatings and luminous materials in the future.

In addition, noctilucent safety fabric can also be made into harness clothing for sanitation workers and traffic police to improve the safety of employees. It is estimated that in Beijing area only if each staff clothing added 0.02 square meters of luminous fabric, the annual consumption of more than 10,000 square meters.

The so - called civil market, it is to point to light industry, mine, railroad commonly, student dress, all sorts of dress, cap, case the domain such as bag. With the enhancement of people's safety awareness, the civil market is gradually expanding. The clothing industry alone needs noctilucent cloth, noctilucent leather and noctilucent ribbon annually, totaling 15 million square meters, but China's current production capacity is not more than 2 million square meters, and nearly 1/3 of the volume is exported to other countries and regions, with huge market potential.

It is reported that China's research on luminous materials began in the early 1970s. During the "seventh five year plan" and "eighth five year plan", the ministry of security, the ministry of communications, the ministry of railways and other relevant departments have included the project in the plan and organized to tackle key problems. After nearly 20 years of unremitting efforts, the domestic has been able to mass production of luminous cloth, luminous leather. As the production technology of luminous film is difficult and the production equipment is not matched, the quality of domestic products is still at a low level and cannot meet the high quality demand of highways and other markets. Therefore, China needs to import about 20 million us dollars of luminous film from 3M company every year.

At present, countries in the development of traffic safety supplies at the same time, pay more attention to Photoluminescent material which it is comfort and beauty. The base material of material not only sundry, and colour and lustre also develops from oneness silver ash to classics, yellow, green, blue wait for colour and lustre.

It is particularly worth mentioning that Photoluminescent ink containing glass beads with high refractive index has appeared in foreign countries, which can be printed on clothing. Depending on the color of the substrate, the luminous ink and fabric color can be adjusted to be close to each other, which is the same as ordinary clothing in the daytime. However, when there is light at night, the pattern will appear immediately. This kind of clothing collection fashion, beautiful, security in a suit, clothing industry has become a new army.
