Product Description

FindTape Glow / Reflective Anti-Slip Cleat Treads combine all the features of durable adhesive backed cleats with added glow-in-the-dark and/or reflective safety features. Anti-skid glow treads are great for use on non-slip surfaces subjected to low light or power outages and non-skid reflective treads are great when need to reflect a high-intensity light like car headlights. Even in well-lit areas, these cleats provide a visible warning for potential hazards.

Glow / reflective treads are 6-inches wide x 24-inches long which makes them suitable for steps, ledges, walkways, and other surfaces. Ready to use and easy to apply, their size makes them a cost-effective and efficient non-skid surface solution without having to cover the entire substrate.

The glow cleats are 30 millicandelas per m2 at two minutes, and glowness decreases to five millicandelas after 10 minutes. Even after 30 minutes they are clearly visible in a totally dark room to the night-adjusted eye, but 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.

Product Features and Applications

  • Permanent and self-adhesive backed
  • Guide personnel during blackouts
  • Alert potentially hazardous areas in day or night
  • Use on steps and ledges, in hard hat areas, near chemical storage, and more
  • Available in two phrase options, Caution or Watch Your Step

FindTape AST-TREAD Glow / Reflective Anti-Slip Cleat Treads
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
