Atlanta, Georgia - After 14 years of research and endless trials in the field of practical
photo luminescent application, a unique product has emerged, and it's been
recognized by greenhomehints.com as a product contributing to making
the planet a greener and healthier place for all.
After-Lite Energy-Free Lighting performs absolutely as described. Its
creator, Tim S. LeMaster, a professional inventor for the past 25 years, is
no newcomer to the universe of photo luminescent technology. He has
succeeded in taking what one used to think of as a glow-in-the-dark novelty
and elevated it to a legitimate player in the quest for a greener, more
Here is a quick overview of what differentiates After-Lite from its
glow-in-the-dark predecessors: It begins with a variety of advanced,
high-grade, photo luminescent crystals. These proprietary rare earth
minerals are processed under intense heat and pressure by a leading
developer of unique photo luminescent safety products. The result is
remarkable product that glows brightly for hours without requiring an energy
source. LeMaster calls his creation a Crystal Energy Cell (CEC).
The crystal energy cell absorbs light, natural or manmade, during daylight
hours or at times when a space is artificially lit. Absorbed light, in the
form of photons, is stored by the crystal energy cell. Then, in low light or
dark conditions, those photons are released, resulting in a soothing green
glow allowing that space to be negotiated safely for hours without requiring
energy to illuminate.
A CEC charged by the sun for as little as 3 minutes can be taken into a dark
room and function nearly as effectively as a flashlight. Longer exposure to
brighter, broader-spectrum light results in a brighter, longer-lasting
When partnered with a compact fluorescent light bulb (a proven energy-saver)
the After-Lite Energy-Free System is a positive solution to generating light
while contributing the the green initiative by not requiring energy to
operate once it is in use.
Remarkably, the CEC will never loose its ability to recharge. Remove it from
a failed light and attach it to a new bulb to provide light energy-free,
over and over. Not only does the product save energy, it has positive
security and safety benefits as well.
"Photo luminescence has already proved itself to be a lifesaver." LeMaster says.
Photo luminescent paint was utilized in the World Trade Center towers after
the first terrorist attack in 1993. Its widespread application provided
visibility after power outages in the attack of 9/11 and has been credited
for saving many lives.
"We supply helmet and tool patches to the fire departments of New York City,
Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Pittsburgh, to mention a few. The same process
has revolutionized energy-free signage for low-light conditions, saving
municipalities thousands of dollars, and boosted safety standards in other
applications from stairway lighting strips to subway platforms."
After-Lite provides safety and comfort benefits. An After-Lite crystal
energy cell will illuminate a room when the power goes out allowing safe
negotiation around the room; or function as an energy-free night-light.
To casually compare the cost of a package of compact fluorescent light bulbs
available at a retailer to the price of a complete After-Lite system is
"The compact fluorescent light bulb is an energy-saving consumable product
which we provide as a platform for our After-Lite product, LeMaster notes.
The bulb has a predictable lifespan. But the true value of our purchase
proposition lies in the crystal energy cell, which will last for eons."
