Professional Glow in the Dark Tape [24 Hour]

Basic Info

Model No.: YG 100 series

Product Description

TID Photoluminescent or Glow-in-the-dark Film helps to provide safe pathways for exits, highlights obstacles and allows safe movement in emergency situations or anytime electrical lighting has failed.

Like all photoluminescent materials our film's pigments get excited when "charged" with light from an external source such as a light or the sun. When that light source is removed the film emitts the built-up energy in form of a yellow-green glow. This glow will range in brightness and duration depending the intensity and time of exposure to the light source.

We have a range of films available that are photoluminescent ranging from popular standard glow-in-the-dark film to digitally printable and films that meet requirements of various international safety standards.

Physical Performance

TID Photoluminescent Material Photoluminescent Vinyl is tested to have following physical properties:

  1. 1.      Thickness : 9-11 mils
  2. 2.      Visual Appearance : Light Yellow Green Color
  3. 3.      Glowing Colors : Bright Green
  4. 4.      Adhesive : Permanent Pressure Sensitive

Test Method: 90o Hang Weight

Test Result: Les than 2 Inch (55 mm) Movement

  1. 5.      Impact Resistance

Test Method: Apply vinyl to a standard panel 3 x 6 inch (7.6x15.2cm) and condition. Subject vinyl to a 50 inch pounds (5.7Nm) impact in accordance with ASTM D-2794.

Test Result: No separation from panel or cracking outside immediate on impact area.

  1. 6.      Shrinkage

Test Method: Condition a 9 by 9 –in (229 by 229-mm) vinyl with liner for a minimum of 1 hour, removed the liner with adhesive side up for 24 hours.

Test Result: No Change


  1. 7.      Flexibility

Test Method: Following conditioning of 1 x 6 inch sample, remove liner and dust adhesive with talc. At standard conditions, bend in one second around 1/8 inch (3.2mm) mandrel with adhesive side facing mandrel.

Test Result:  No cracking, peeling or delamination on Application Surface

  1. 8.      Application Temperature Range : 50oF – 100oF (10oC – 38oC)

  6. 13.  Flame Spread (ASTM E 162-2002)
  7. 14.  UV Degradation (ASTM G 155-2004)



Cleaning – Routine washing is recommended for maximum performance

Visual Inspection – Photoluminescent signs and markings should be inspected visually every 12 months at minimum, inspect the signs and markings under a normal lighting condition.




TID Photoluminescent Material Photoluminescent Vinyl incorporates a pressure sensitive adhesive and should be applied to the substrate a temperature of 60oF/18oC or higher by any of following methods:

Mechanical Squeeze Roll Applicator – Application to extrusions that are edge wrapped require sufficient softening of the vinyl, this can be accomplished by directing additional heat to the “next to last” edge roller. This practice will increase productivity and minimize cracking.

Hand Squeeze Roll Applicator – Application for complete sign or backgrounds must be done with a roll laminator, either mechanical or hand driven.




TID Photoluminescent Material Photoluminescent Vinyl can be used on wide range of substrates. For the optimized performance, users are argued to carefully evaluate all substrates for adhesion and durability. All substrates for proper application of photoluminescent vinyl should have the follow characteristics:

Clean- Smooth- Flat- Rigid- Dimensionally Stable- Weather Resistant- Nonporous- High Surface Energy




Plotter Cutting

Programmable knife cut (electronic cutting)

  1. 1.      Flatbed plotters can either die cut or kiss cut and offer the most consistent reliable performance.
  2. 2.      Friction Fed plotter. Kiss cut only. Success has been achieved using plotters that have 300 grams of down force and a 60º cutting blade. Additional drive wheels may need to be added to improve tracking. An alternative procedure is to cut sheeting from the liner side. Blade force and knife depth must be set to score but not cut through the top film. Break apart individual copy or apply premask to retain spacing.
  3. 3.      Other Cutting Methods

TID Photoluminescent Material Photoluminescent Vinyl may be hand cut or die cut one sheet at a time, and band sawed or guillotined in stacks. Maximum stack height for cutting Reflective Sheeting is 1 ½ inch or 50 sheets.


Storage and Packaging


TID Photoluminescent Material Photoluminescent Vinyl should be stored in a cool, dry area, preferably at 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) and 30-50% relative humidity and should be applied within one year of purchase.


Rolls should be stored horizontally in the shipping carton. Partially used rolls should be returned to the shipping carton or suspended horizontally from a rod or pipe through the core. Unprocessed sheets should be stored flat. Finished signs and applied blanks should be stored on edge.


Screen processed signs must be protected with slipsheet paper. Place the glossy side of the slipsheet against the sign face and pad the face with closed cell packaging foam. Double faced signs must have the glossy side of the slipsheet against each face of the sign.


Unmounted screened faces must be stored flat and interleaved with slipsheet, glossy side against the sign face.

Avoid banding, crating, or stacking signs. Package for shipment in accordance with commercially accepted standards to prevent movement and chafing. Store sign packages indoors on edges.


Panels or finished signs must remain dry during shipment and storage. If packaged signs become wet, unpack immediately and allow signs to dry.




Nylon washers are required when twist style fasteners are used to mount the sign.




Signs that require cleaning should be flushed with water, then washed with a detergent solution and soft bristle brush or sponge. Avoid pressure that may damage the sign face. Flush with water following washing. Do not use solvents to clean signs.


General Performance Considerations


The durability of TID Photoluminescent Material Photoluminescent Vinyl and finished signs using matched component materials will depend upon substrate selection and preparation, compliance with recommended application procedures, geographic area, exposure conditions, and maintenance.


Maximum durability of TID Photoluminescent Material Photoluminescent Vinyl can be expected in applications subject to vertical exposure on stationary objects when processed and applied to properly prepared aluminum according to recommendations. The user must determine the suitability of any nonmetallic sign backing for its intended use.


Sign failures caused by the substrate or improper surface preparation are not the responsibility of TID. Applications to unprimed, excessively rough or non-weather resistant surfaces or exposure to severe or unusual conditions can shorten the performance of such applications.


Custom colors, certain lighter colors, heavily toned colors or blends containing yellow or gold may have reduced durability. Atmospheric conditions in certain geographic areas may result in reduced durability.

Periodic sign inspection and regular sign replacement are strongly recommended in order for sign owners to establish their own effective service life expectation, beyond the warranty period.
