Why are photoluminescent tapes great?

In recent years, photoluminescent tapes have become more and more prevalent and are increasingly used in a variety of applications. This is mainly because photoluminescent tapes have many amazing features.

Here is the content list:

1. Why does photoluminescent tape glow?

2. How long do photoluminescent tapes that glow in the dark last?

3. How many times can photoluminescent tapes be recharged?

Why does photoluminescent tape glow?

Photoluminescent tape is made in the same way as ordinary vinyl tape, except that it is also coated with a phosphor. This phosphor absorbs the radiation of light and emits it, which is what makes it glow. Whenever the tape is exposed to any type of light, it begins to absorb the radiation. The stronger the light source, the more radiation it absorbs.

An interesting thing about photoluminescent tape is that it glows even when it is in a bright place. Because of the ambient light, the human eye can't detect luminescence. However, when you turn off the lights, you will be able to see the photoluminescent tapes glowing in the dark.

The glow you see is light energy that has been absorbed and re-emitted. This is because the photons within the phosphor in the tape are excited and move quickly, thus producing light.

How long do photoluminescent tapes that glow in the dark last?

Several factors can affect how long your photoluminescent tape will emit light. The biggest factor is how much light energy it absorbs before the light source is removed. If you expose the photoluminescent tape to a very bright light for a long period, it will glow significantly longer than if you only expose the tape to light for a short period.

Once the light source is removed from the photoluminescent tape, it emits energy quickly at first because the photons are moving very fast. About 80-85% of the light energy is consumed within the first 30 minutes of moving away from the light source. As the energy is depleted, the light emitted will slowly fade.

Since the human eye adapts to the darkness through a process called dark adaptation, people will still see the light from the photoluminescent tapes even after it has diminished considerably. This is why photoluminescent tapes are still easily visible for several hours because they spend the last 15-20% of the light energy stored in them.

How many times can photoluminescent tapes be recharged?

The phosphor that absorbs and emits light energy acts completely natural, so it doesn't "wear out", so to speak. This means that photoluminescent tapes can be "recharged". The photoluminescent tape will continue to recharge quickly and glow as brightly the 1000th time it is exposed to light as it did the first time, making it a long-lasting safety tool for many facilities.

This photoluminescent tape is most effective when used in locations that are frequently exposed to light and have short periods of darkness. For example, using photoluminescent tape in a warehouse where the lights are always on ensures that the tape is "charged up" and ready to glow in the event of a power outage. As long as you keep in mind that the glow time is usually no more than 3-4 hours, you will find many uses for it in a variety of workplaces.

With the above, I'm sure you already know why photoluminescent tape is so popular. So you also want to have a unique photoluminescent tape, you can buy the product from Wenzhou Xiangying Reflective Material Science&Technology Co., Ltd.
