Neon Signs are glass tubes which contain neon gas or other inert gases. The tubes are bent into the shape of the sign required, and then a high voltage is applied to make the gas glow. The different gases glow different colors (e.g. neon glows reddish orange and argon-mercury glows pale blue). However, the glass tubes can also be coated with phosphors for different colors. The lighting is often bright and colorful, and with the addition of flashing on and off, it creates a great eye catching sign for commercial and advertising applications.
