What is Glow Tape?
Glow tape, also known as glow-in-the-dark tape, is a premium tape that glows in low-light situations or areas without light at all such as nighttime when someone deliberately turns the lights off, or when the lights go out during an electrical disturbance or emergency.
Self-illuminating tape is ideal for identifying stairs or exits, compared to other kinds of safety tape, like reflective safety tape, which requires a light source for it to shine.
Glow tape absorbs ambient light, which gets stored in the pigment, effectively charging the tape so it can glow in the dark. When the lights go out, the bright green tape is immediately visible. Depending on the type of glow tape, it will have full intensity for 6 to 24 hours.
Applications of Glow Tape
Safety and Emergency Situations
Glow tape is designed to meet or exceed safety and emergency egress standards. The tape can be attached to walls, floors, handrails, door frames, columns, stairs, hazards, and anything else that could be dangerous in the dark or low light.
It can also be used for marking exits that need to be visible no matter where they are, such as commercial settings, industrial settings, the workplace, or even at home.
Arts, Crafts, and Decor
This tape is a polyester film tape with an acrylic coating, making it a flexible, durable tape that can be used for multiple purposes. It can be cut and adhered to on most two-dimensional or three-dimensional surfaces and can be used to make any art or decoration glow in the dark, making for unique art material.
It's non-radioactive and non-toxic, making it a safe tape for arts and crafts that can be used by people of all ages at school or home in a variety of ways, including as a prop in games to play in the dark.
