Photoluminescent materials (commonly called “glow-in-the-dark”) has the ability to absorb light sunlight, fluorescent, incandescent, etc) and then to emit light. When ambient darkness occurs, be it becomes highly visible, lasting for about 24hours.
Upon removal of the light source, the stored light is gradually released; the strongest glow is produced during the first 30 minutes of darkness, the most critical period following a power failure or other emergency. Then it fades over a period of time, when there is light again, it stores energy again. So the photoluminescence process is circulatory.
Our Photoluminescent glow strip tape can be used to highlight doorways, outline exit doors, identify door exit breaker bars, use as guide path in hallways, in fluorescent fixtures for emergency lighting, and on stairs to identify steps.
It can also be used in automibile rims.
These are self adhesive strips which absorb any visible light and glow in the dark. UV light works best to charge these.
