The Cyalume Mini ChemLight is a yellow military-grade chemical light stick that measures 1.5″ long, provides instant 360 degree illumination for up to four hours, and is suitable for military, law enforcement, and public safety applications. The ChemLight is non-toxic and non-flammable, and it is waterproof and windproof for use in severe weather. To activate the light stick, bend, snap, and shake the tube. Each light stick is individually foil-wrapped for protection from light and moisture, and has up to a four-year shelf life from the date of manufacture. The light stick can be used for marking cleared rooms, reading maps, cockpit lighting, fire-fighting “bread crumbs,” officer rank identification, and other color-coded applications, among others. The ChemLight meets Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and NATO Maintenance and Supply Agency (NAMSA) specifications, and National/NATO Stock Numbers (NSN) are printed on each product.
The external body of the light stick is made of polypropylene copolymer, and is phthalate free for safety. The internal illuminating chemical substance is non-toxic and non-flammable, and the components of the light stick are recyclable. The light stick floats in water and works best between 40 to 80 degrees F (4 to 27 degrees C). The product optimally performs at 24 degrees C. The brightness will increase and the duration will decrease as the temperature rises. All sticks are tested at a temperature of 75 degrees F (24 degrees C) to determine the illumination duration. Once light sticks have been frozen, they will still produce some light, but performance will not be as reliable. Humidity and atmospheric conditions do not affect the light sticks.
