Product Description

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. In its uncharged state the tape has a white/cream color and when glowing the tape has a luminescent lime green color. 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. The adhesive has a 24 hour dwell time.

6-foot glow strips are shipped in rolled format and typically 10 glow strips will be rolled together and combined into one bag. Made in the U.S.

* Multiple cases may be shipped per package in order to minimize the charge for shipping.

Purpose was to illuminate the way out in the event of an emergency. Works great for this purpose.

Not bad
JVCC GLW Glow in the Dark Tape [6 Hour]
I planned on using this to mark things in the back room with no windows so we could see them when we first walked in. We do not have the lights on back there long enough to charge it thoroughly.

JVCC GLW Glow in the Dark Tape [6 Hour]
This glow-tape works very well and is very strong as I used it on a stage floor. Held up very well.

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
