No power no problem with Glo-X light

GOLD Coast-based manufacturer Glo-X is quietly confident its recently invented light recycling technology will be the next big disruptor in the mining world and revolutionise the way mining companies manage emergency mining safety lighting in the future.

Glo-X light recycling technology in a mine setting

Using the light recycling technology invented by Glo-X managing director Kris McKenna and his brother Josh, the company developed a high-quality solvent-based acrylic illuminating paint and applied it to a range of unpowered mining safety lighting products that could be used in emergency shelters, egress routes and other mine areas in the event of a power blackout.
The technology uses a mix of rare earth minerals to generate a photoluminescence reaction rather than a phosphorescent reaction, which powers the run-of-mill luminescent or glow-in-the-dark products already available on the market.
Once fully charged for an hour by being exposed to a natural or artificial light source, products fitted out with the technology will consistently glow for more than 10 hours.
According to McKenna, there is a huge need for this technology in the safety side of mining, from line marking and safety markers on doorways to staircases or operational equipment and fire block or hazard signs.
