Wholesale Glow Sticks
Glow sticks are a great way to enhance fun events whether it's a holiday get-together or just a generic party. They come in a variety of configurations such as bracelets, necklaces, and sticks. Buying in bulk allows you to stock up or simply ensure that you have enough to go around.How long will an average glow stick last?
Most glow sticks will function continuously for a minimum of 4 hours and a maximum of 24 hours although some types can last longer. There are several factors that can influence the longevity of a glow stick's light, including:
- Size: Smaller glow sticks tend to have somewhat shorter lifespans than their larger counterparts.
- Color: Differently colored glow sticks have different duration times from one another.
- Temperature: Different temperatures will affect the chemicals in your glow product and cause different rates in the reaction process. A warmer environment will produce a brighter glow stick for a shorter period of time, and a cold environment will produce a dimmer light for a longer period.
Glow sticks have 4 primary components that help them to create the bright fluorescent glow inside. The first part is the outer plastic casing that houses the chemical compounds and gives you something to grab when using your item. The second is one of the 2 fluid types that help the glow sticks to keep the light bright. The third part of a glow stick is a small glass vial inside the plastic case that floats in the fluid. Finally, there is yet more fluid contained inside that vial. These 4 components blend together to create the bright light of the stick, necklace, or bracelet. This construction is an essential part of making the product work for you. By bending the plastic tube, you break the vial and allow its fluid to mix with that of the tube. This combination creates the chemical reaction that makes the bright light of your stick, bracelet, or necklace.What other uses does a glow stick have?
Glow sticks, bracelets, and necklaces are not only useful as party supplies but have a number of additional applications. You can use them as a light source to find your way in darkened areas such as during a power outage in your home. You can use the glow chemicals from these products as a way to mark trails and keep your group together during camping activities or nighttime party games, too.How long can you store them?
When purchasing glow products wholesale, particularly in bulk, you'll likely want to store some of them, possibly for long periods of time, until your next party. Regularly packaged necklaces or bracelets can last for over a year if stored properly. Those packaged in foil wrap have a shelf life of 4 years minimum. For optimal results, you should store all unused glow sticks in a cool, dry environment.
