Tritium is an isotope of Hydrogen. When Tritium gas is encapsulated in glass vials with phosphorescent pigments, a self-luminous (glow in the dark) device is created.
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).
No. That’s the best part about Tritium, it’s always “on”. Tritium requires no outside charge like traditional glow-in-the-dark items. It’s completely self-powered.
(Customer thinks it’s broken/off) Tritium offers a very localized glow in low to no-light conditions. Make sure to take it in the dark room and allow your eyes time to adjust to the environment.
Tritium has a half-life of 12.23 years but it will still be useable for longer than that.
Yes, Tritium is protected in glass vials.
Tritium can be used at very high and low temperature extremes as it is commonly used in military applications such as watches, compasses, and gun sights.
Most parts are built to order. Tritium is usually only a month or two old.
No. It is illegal for us to sell loose vials.
