How does glow in the dark tape work?

Glow in the Dark Tape is a self-adhesive vinyl made up of a PET layer and a luminous coating. The backside of the luminous tape is a specially formulated pressure-sensitive adhesive layer that provides permanent adhesion and is protected with siliconized release paper. The glow in the dark tape is a unique self-powered tape that accumulates light radiation in the daytime and emits the glow in the dark. The glow in the dark tape is used to help improve the safety in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and line emergency evacuation routes.

How to charge glow in the dark tape?

Glow in the dark tape needs a “charge” before it glows. The luminous tape is made just like normal vinyl tape except it also has a phosphor inside it. This phosphor will absorb light radiation into it and emit it back out, which is where the glowing comes from. Glow in the dark tape should be charged under direct sunlight or artificial light for 2-3 hours for maximum glow. Whenever the luminous tape is exposed to any type of light, it will begin to accumulate light radiation.
