Glow Tape?

May 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Glow Tape can be found on nearly every stage across the world. We use it to indicate locations on a deck and/or to prevent injury. Most of us in the entertainment industry use it. How many really know how it works? Why, when we expose it to ambient light it retains energy and it is able to regenerate it.

Glow Tape is made up of phosphorescent materials including common pigments, zinc sulfide and strontium aluminate. The phosphorescent materials absorbs and stores ambient light whether that be sunlight, incandescent lamps, or fluorescent lights. That energy is released over a long period of time.

Tip: If you are looking to get the most out of your glow tape, charge it for at least 10 seconds and the light will be emitted for 4-8 hours.

This brand new tape adheres to nearly any surface and is easy to remove.
