Smaller, brighter, more sensitive

Specialists of RPF "Luminofor" Corp." have upgraded a number of photophosphors that differ from previously manufactured products in morphological and spectral characteristics:
- anti-stokes phosphor F(a)SD-546-2M - modification of phosphor F(a)SD-546-2, characterized by an expanded excitation spectrum, increased glow intensity, and reduced particle size. The upgraded product is recommended to be used as the basis of luminescent paint for offset printing, as well as as a more sensitive material to IR radiation for creating visualizers;
- photophosphor FK-5M-1 is a modification of the phosphor FK-5M with a maximum particle size of no more than 9 microns and a preserved light intensity;
- photophosphor FL-626M is a modification of the phosphor FL-626, which has an increased glow intensity and a red-crimson luminescence colour with λmax = 670 nm.
Modified photophosphors may be of interest to consumers of materials for printing products.

New development of film-forming materials

Specialists of RPF "Luminofor" had developed new types of film-forming materials (FFM):
- granulated lanthanum fluoride for thin-layer optics (granules 1-10 mm);
aluminium oxide for thin-layer optics in the spherical form of granules  (Ø 1-5 mm);
- tableted titanium (III) oxide Ti2O3 for thin-layer optics;

Thermoindicator patches in the new design

"RPF "Luminofor" Corp." specialists have developed a new design of thermoindicator patches. By their shapes patches stick on any surface safely, for example, on a conductor insalation near an elecntric contact.
Compact thermoindicator patches easily fit on objects with the smallest surface area.
Thermoindicator patch sticks "in ring" or "in tuck" for contaminated materials or materials with low adhesive (PTFE or polyethylene).
The main difference and advantage of this technology is the detection of an emergency that has already occurred, as any electronic equipment does, but first signs of a pre-emergency situation that can lead to equipment failure, an emergency stop of the technical process, a fire, etc.
