HALO™ Military Glow In The Dark Tape (Luminous / Phosphorescent Tape.
is the same material you see being used on the Helmet Bands of all US front line troops. The two small rectangles known as "Cat's Eyes
" help prevent friendly fire accidents.
We supply these same 4" X 5.75" Sheets
to US and Foreign Militaries. The sheets are easy to die cut into whatever shape you need or use multiple sheets to build important phrases like: "DO NOT SHOOT
" or "USA
" that you can stick to the top of your vehicle or use to more covertly make a landing zone.
Because it GLOWS IN THE DARK
it is able to be seen by the naked eye as close as perhaps 100 meters
. When viewed with any Night Vision
a single 4" X 5.75" sheet becomes a BEACON of SAFETY
which can be seen from aircraft on attack approach up to 3/4 a mile
. Obviously the larger amount of the Glow Material you use the easier it will be to be seen at a greater distance.
The above photo gives you an idea of the brightness we are talking about
. We have placed a cell phone on top of the Glow Sheet to demonstrate how bright this product is. In fact the only thing brighter then the glow sheet is the cell phone text window. The glow sheet even lights up the wall behind the phone. Even after 45+ minutes you can still use the glow sheet to read a map or a newspaper.
You have seen other glow in the dark materials like: plastic bugs and Halloween paint that only glow for about 5 minutes, then turn dark and need to be recharged.
Well hold on to your hats… HALO™ MILITARY GLOW IN THE DARK TAPE
is 50 times brighter
than the competition and lasts up to 10 hours
Light Yellowish Green
in color HALO™ Military Glow Tape keeps its maximum luminescence for about 30 minutes. It then looses about 40% of its brightness and remains at that level for up to 10 hours. When light is present it automatically recharges in a matter of minutes.
The adhesive backing is specially formulated
to have a high tack rate so it stays on but, a low adhesion rate, which means it is removable for up to 6 months without leaving a hard to clear off sticky residue. Our Glow Tape has a mild application of UV protection. Intensity or the sun light and extreme temperatures can limit the life span of this product. General life expectancy of this product in direct sun light is 5-6 years.
Perfect for lots of other uses like: Halloween, Kids Rooms (Stars on the ceiling), Motorcycle Helmets, Luggage Identification Marking, Bicycles, etc.
HALO™ Military Glow Tape is a perfect complement to MFI's Highly Visibility Reflective HALO™ TAPE. As you might imagine not all hazards (like pedestrians) have a light / power source that would illuminate our retro-reflective products so an added safety
measure of a self-powered
glow in the dark material is highly desirable.
SPECIAL NOTE ON GLINT TAPES USE BY THE MILITARY: There a number of different types of "Glint Tapes" with varying degrees of reflective quality. HALO™ Glow Tape is NOT "GLINT TAPE" but it can act as a second level of safety / quick identification against fratricide / friendly fire accidents. Glow tape works 100% differently than HALO™ Tape / Glint Tape as it has very little reflective quality.
HALO™ Military Glow Tape emits it's own light as it is PHOTOLUMINESCENCE.
