glow in the dark grout?

I recently came across a glow in the dark grout. I was wondering if anyone out there has used it or at least worked with the company's other products. I'm really curious as to how long it stays glow in the dark? Remember the cheap plastic kids toys? that quit glowing? That's my fear, although the elements being in grout seem to me, to make more sense than in plastic, yet I'm left wondering if it will just end up being a cool fun shiny new toy, with no longevity Looking for a collectible: wink:

glow in the dark grout?

Hi; I used Spectralock over my kitchen, the living room and dining room and the family area. Yes, it was pricey but sooooooo worth it. I love it. At night it looks like being in outer space or like something out of Tron. I used my elderly Mom as an excuse (she would not ever turn on a light) so that she could 'see' her way around furniture. She could just follow the grout lines to the kitchen or to her bath. I also had it put into the entryway medallion and the thing is on fire at night. The only caveat is that it must be really dark or any outside light will prevent the glow.
Go for it. Assuming i have the $$$, it is going into my next house too but as more of an accent. I've discovered that travertine tile is not so very supportive of feet.
