Solas retroeflective tape is a highly reflective marking system that is a marine-grade tape designed for use in harsh marine environments. Used in various marine life-saving equipment, such as life jackets, lifeboats, life rafts, yachts, sailboats, lifebuoys, and submersibles.
Solas approved reflective tape is divided into adhesive type and sewing type according to the surface application of different objects to meet all your applications.
In addition, FLIGHT can also customize microprism structure types and encapsulated lens glass bead types according to your different requirements.
At FLIGHT, you can find IMO and US Coast Guard approved marine grade reflective tape. Moreover, we provide reflective waterproof tapes produced with different reflective technologies. It includes metalized micro prism technology, non-metalized microprism technology, and encapsulated lens glass bead technology.
The metalized micro prism type is a layer of silver metal electroplated on the microprism layer, which effectively improves the reflectivity. And the single-layer structure makes the waterproof performance better. In addition, its soft surface characteristics make it suitable for use on any surface.
Non-metalized microprism solas retro reflective tape is the most economical type. If you are looking for the best value for money marine reflective tape then this is the ideal choice for you.
Glass bead type solas reflective tape was the preferred conspicuity marking for early maritime safety products. Until the continuous breakthroughs in micro prism technology, more and more marine-grade tapes now prefer micro prism reflective sheet types.
The application of marine reflective tape is complex and varied. It is not only used on the hard surfaces of yachts and lifeboats but also on the soft surfaces of lifebuoys and lifejackets. So different solas tape types are required to suit the application of reflective marking on all maritime objects.
FLIGHT has over 15 years of R&D and manufacturing of retroreflective materials and can customize self-adhesive and sew on solas reflective tapes for you to meet all your applications.
All sea objects can be supplied with the self-adhesive type of Solas tape. Its rigid type and flexible type can meet almost all surface applications. Its application is convenient and widely favored by users.
Sewn type solas marine reflective tape is commonly used on life jackets. Because its sewing process makes the reflective markings on life jackets less likely to fall off, some customers will choose it for use on life jackets.
The biggest difference between solas tape and other reflective waterproof tapes is reflectivity and adhesive strength. In sea search and rescue, the super reflectivity helps it be found quickly, and the salt-resistant glue allows it to adapt to the harsh environment at sea.
Due to the extreme reflectivity of solas reflective tape, it is not only widely used in marine environments, but also favored by motorcyclists and cyclists.
