    Default Tritium color

    I am doing a project similar to Nite glowring from Merkava and got a quick question.
    What color tritium (green, white, yellow, ice blue or blue) will give a max visibility when mounted inside a blue transparent plastic?

    I've been looking for an answer to this my self. I came across a chart a while back which detailed how much light each colour gave out, but of course I can't find it now. From recollection though, green gave the highest output.

    There is a very nice picture here that shows all the colors and a chart of their relative brightness. Green being the brightest at 100%. It is also a sales thread.
