Neon signage – is one of the most prominent types of outdoor advertising, where tubes filled with gas (neon, argon and mixtures) are used as internal or external lighting. Different combinations of colors and shapes are possible, and the charm that creates such constructions cannot be repeated by any other illumination. When conscientiously manufactured “neon” does not require frequent additional expenses for maintenance, unlike advertising with backlighting. For example with fluorescent lamps, which must be constantly replaced, in extreme cases (if the tubes are intact), you will only need a small repair for example a defective transformer.
Technology of neon advertising production
Over the years, neon advertising has not undergone any significant improvements. Everything is so good that it does not even need additional innovations. The same glass tubes of different colors and shades, a bright glow of the fluorescence and a mesmerizing light of neon lights.
In short, the glow occurs due to the penetration of the accelerated electron particles into the fluorescence layer. And these particles are dispersed by a high voltage created by special transformers. The task of the glass blower master is not only to curve necessary shape from the glass, but also to properly draw air from the tube and fill it with gas. The durability of neon letters and signage depends on the correctness carrying of these requirements.
With the observance of all technologies, the life cycle of such sign can reach 10 years.
