Chemical lighting guarantees access to a certain light source in all conditions, regardless of weather conditions, batteries and accumulators. Chemical light can be an emergency solution during camping, night hiking, caving, diving and other activities, where we need a light source that is resistant to external factors. Over the past 40 years, chemical lights have found hundreds of applications in various industries, both tourism and recreation, as well as industry. They are also well-suited for marking dangerous places or in tactical training. The chemical light will be used wherever you need to illuminate or mark something.

How it's working?
Chemical lights are disposable light sources that can run for 5 minutes up to 12 hours. The source of light in this case is the phenomenon of chemiluminescence, i.e. the emission of light (light waves), produced as a result of specific chemical reactions. Two unmixed joys are placed in one plastic container, with the exception that one of these liquids is in a glass vial, an inner container. For a combination of substance and a chemical reaction that is a source of light, the outer container should be crushed or bent so that the glass vial in the center breaks and releases the substance it contains. The reaction is safe, no heat or other energy is generated except for energy in the form of photons of light.
Which chemical light should I choose?
Over the last 40 years, chemical lighting has been used in many industries and the market has become full of many manufacturers offering products in terms of performance, size, weight and color. Which light to choose? As always, it is worth finding the right compromise between quality and price. Two manufacturers come with such a compromise, which you can find lighting in the Hwesta.eu store.
