Our Products

Chemistry
Incandescence, as in a candle, involves the conversion of chemical energy to heat, followed by conversion of some of the heat energy to light. Chemiluminescence, or  chemical light, differs in that chemical energy is converted directly to light without the involvement of heat.

While the resulting chemical reaction is highly sophisticated, the chemical lighting device is fairly basic: a simple container that holds two separate solutions that, when mixed, cause a chemical reaction that emits light.

One solution is placed in a very thin-walled ampule to keep it separate from the second solution. Both solutions are placed in a plastic tube and sealed. The light stick is activated by bending the plastic tube until the inner ampule breaks, allowing the two solutions to mix and thereby creating the chemical reaction. A typical light reaction can last 6 to 8 hours or more depending upon the formulation used.

Toxicity

The two solutions are nontoxic, non-corrosive and non-irritating. Neither component is caustic nor acidic. In case of accidental contact with skin or eyes, flush the areas well with water.

Shipping & Returns

Shipping Information
Orders typically ship within one business day and ship from Massachusetts ZIP Code 01453. Please see below for our approximate ground service map.

Business days are Monday through Friday only and do not include Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or the day the package is shipped. For example if a package is shipped on Monday to a 3-day delivery point, Monday is not counted as a business day so the expected delivery date would be Thursday, the 3rd business day after the ship date.

For expedited shipping of multiple items, please call us to see if we can lower our shipping cost!
