Signal Lucence Heat Transfer

Phosphorescent and reflective film
Coats Signal Lucence Heat Transfer is a phosphorescent and reflective film that can be cut in stripes for logos or bespoke designs and fused on garments.

It consists of a patent pending formulation of strontium nitrate photoluminescent pigments and clear microscopic glass beads, which is applied on a durable polymer layer. The heat reactive adhesive is applied on the back side, whilst the protective liner on the phosphorescent and reflective side can be removed after the lamination.

In addition to retro-reflectivity and a fluorescent colours, Coats Signal Lucence Heat Transfer offers a third layer of visibility. It works when there is no primary light source or reduced light.

The photoluminescent material absorbs both natural and artificial UV light through electron excitation which it then emits as an afterglow in low light or zero light. Each time Coats Lucence material is exposed to UV light it will recharge with no need for batteries.

  • Has a short charging time. UV light charging times vary depending on the type of light but typically a day light charge will take 5 minutes and a charge in overhead fluorescent light ten minutes
  • Features a long afterglow which lasts over 8 hours with the first hour being the brightest
  • In addition to phosphorescent properties, all Coats Signal Lucence products offer reflectivity of around 100 cd/lx/m2
  • Can be washed on the garment and has been independently tested to meet the requirements for domestic laundry
  • The technology lasts as long as the garment with testing showing the phosphorescent pigments work for 20 years
  • Certified according to Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex


Since conditions and applications vary considerably in the use of reflective tape, user should assure herself or himself by preliminary testing that the reflective tape is suitable for the end use intended.
