Q: What is your company’s mission?
A: Glow Rhino’s mission is to design and manufacture reliable tritium illuminated tools we can use every day AND night.
Q: What is Tritium?
A: Tritium is an isotope of Hydrogen. When Tritium gas is encapsulated in Borosilicate glass vials with phosphorescent pigments, a self-luminous (glowing) device is created.
Q: Is Tritium dangerous?
Tritium is unable to diffuse through these glass vials. Further, since Tritium is a low energy beta emitter, even if a tritium vial was broken, it is NOT dangerous externally (its beta particles are unable to penetrate human skin)
Tritium vials can be found in a wide range of common consumer goods such as watches, compasses, keychains, submarines, airplanes, gun sights, and tritium exit signs. Now Glow Rhino adds Tritium EDC gear & tools to this list.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulates the use and distribution of self-illuminated tritium devices. Only companies with approved distribution licenses are legally allowed to build and distribute these tritium products. Glow Rhino works with a licensed partner with almost 30 years of experience working with tritium to legally illuminate its approved products.
Q: How long does Tritium last?
A: Tritium is self-powered, there is no need for batteries or an outside charge.
Tritium has a half-life of 12.23 years.
