Signal Lucence Sew-on Tapes

Phosphorescent sew-on tapes
Coats Signal Lucence Sew-on Tapes is a range of high performance phosphorescent sew-on tapes for workwear, PPE, general apparel and accessories.

It is made from a patent pending formulation of strontium nitrate photoluminescent pigments and clear microscopic glass beads, which is applied on different fabric types such as polyester / cotton, flame retardant cotton and meta-aramid. The articles are available in domestic and industrial wash.
