Product Description

FindTape Glow in the Dark Marking Tape (GLW-SLD) is a smooth, solid color photoluminescent marking tape used to aid in low light or no light situations (during lights out conditions from power failures, night time, etc.). This cost-effective tape is constructed from a self-adhesive plastic film base impregnated with photoluminescent powder. The tape is a solid cream color during the day or full light conditions and photoluminescence green glow at night or low or no light conditions.

GLW-SLD tape has a permanent self-adhesive base that sticks to most surfaces, can be recharged using natural or artificial light, and the non-radioactive photolu­min­escent powders have a long lifespan. This tape is conveniently shipped on a 3-inch diameter core and can be cut to length as needed. A popular use for this tape is around light switch plates or other on/off power systems so you can easily find them in the dark.

The glow tape is 11.8 millicandelas per square meter at five minutes, and glowness decreases to 4.6 millicandelas after 10 minutes. After 20 minutes they are 1.6 millicandelas but still clearly visible in a totally dark room to the night-adjusted eye. However, it would not compare in brightness to a standard flashlight.

Please note that if you apply this product onto a porous surface such as wood, concrete or stone, the manufacturer recommends using a surface primer prior to application to help create a stable substrate.

QUESTION: Will this stick to my driveway?
ANSWER: That tape would have a tough time adhering to asphalt for very long (designed to adhere to more high surface energy substrates such as glass and metal). If the driveway is in relatively good condition (not too porous, no accumulated oil, etc.) can try a glow non-skid product such as FindTape AST-GL, FindTape AST-TREAD, or JVCC NS-C which would adhere to that type of surface for a longer period of time. Thank you.

User Reviews

Made in the USA
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
The cut level indicates how many grams of cutting load a glove can withstand from a sharp blade before being penetrated.
Lower gauge gloves are heavier - have thicker construction, fewer stiches knitted per inch and offer less dexterity.
Higher gauge gloves are lighter - have thinner/finer construction, more stitches knitted per inch and offer more dexterity.
Gloves offered typically runs from 7 to 18 (12 and 13 are in the middle of the scale).
