JVCC GLW Glow in the Dark Tape is a flexible polyester laminated photoluminescent film tape with a permanent adhesive on one side. The photoluminescent pigments absorb and store energy from normal, ambient light. In sudden darkness the tape is immediately visible. The tape provides a non-electric safety marking system that easily and inexpensively affixes to walls, handrails, columns, around door frames, and along stairways and baseboards (provides visibility during an emergency). It is wound on a liner for easy handling. Also used for identification of critical equipment controls, exit and directional signage (especially for escape routes and stairways), light switch covers, labels, decals, novelties, sporting goods, trims and special effects. Used in hotels, hospitals, schools, public facilities, office buildings and manufacturing plants.
JVCC Glow in the Dark Tape is fully charged within 30 minutes after exposure to either artificial or natural light and glows brightest the first 15 to 30 minutes after activation has ceased, but will remain clearly visible in a totally dark room to the night-adjusted eye for up to 6 hours (to the night-adjusted eye it is visible, but it would not compare it brightness to say a standard flashlight). It also recharges. The tape has excellent UV stability and does not show significant degradation when used outdoors. The luminescent system used is non-radioactive and non-toxic. The tape is offset, screen, flexo, and thermo transfer printable. Adhesive has a 24 hour dwell time.
