Abstract : It is an object of the invention to provide a spray formulation which can be used for general illumination, signaling, and for nighttime sea or land rescue markers. The invention comprises primarily a mixture of an oxyluminescent compound such as one of the peraminoethylenes and a liquefied gas compatible with the oxyluminescent compound. The active ingredient is a peraminoethylene of the formula (R2N)2C = C(R2N)2 in which the R's which can be alike or different are straight or branched chain alkyl or cycloalkyl hydrocarbon radicals of from 1-10 carbons each of which can be joined pairwise on one nitrogen to form 3-5 membered monoaza heterocycles and on two nitrogens to form 3-7 membered diaza heterocycles. The member of the peraminoethylene series which was used was tetrakis(dimethylamino)ethylene because it was easily available.
