If you've ever had a close call in a dingy or didn't see someone dangerously close we're sure you'll attest to the safety value of 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective tape. It is SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) Grade tape and is ideal for the following applications and more:
  • hard & inflatable dingies
  • sail covers & sails
  • life vests
  • life rings
  • jackets
  • mooring balls
  • docks & pilings
  • kayaks & rowing shells
This product conforms to the Marine Equipment Directive 96/98/EC and International Maritime Organization (IMO) Resolution A.658 (16) Annex 2. In addition, it is approved by the U.S. Coast Guard to meet 46 CFR part 164, Subpart 164.018 requirements for Type I and II retroreflective materials. Scotchlite reflective material – SOLAS grade tape helps enhance visibility of life-saving equipment in nighttime, or low-light conditions when illuminated by a spotlight or other light source.

This reflective tape is silver, flexible and reflective with a pressure sensitive adhesive. The tape can be used on the following substrates:
  • Rough surfaces
  • Glass reinforced polyester
  • Aluminum
  • Rubber coated cloth
  • Rubber film
  • Vinyl or PVC films
  • Polyurethane film
  • Polyester fabric (varies with treatment)
  • Nylon fabric
  • Cotton drill (thicker weave)
The tape is comprised of an encapsulated lens optical design that provides high reflectivity over a wide range of entrance angles, whether dry or wet. Scotchlite reflective material – SOLAS grade products have a European mark of conformance.

Directions:

The coated fabric must be clean, dry, and substantially free of contamination. If necessary, wipe the substrate surface with a mild solvent, such as VM & P Naphtha or mineral spirits (test the solvent first on a small area of the fabric to make sure the surface is not damaged).

The minimum application temperature is 60°F (15°C). Whenever possible, remove flotation material or deflate equipment,
and smooth out wrinkles.

  1. Hand cut or cut with a scissors to the desired size
  2. Separate approximately 1” of liner paper from reflective material. Bend liner back onto itself.
  3. When everything is properly aligned, press down the exposed adhesive area with a squeegee starting from the inside and working towards end.

NOTE: It is recommended, to improve adhesion, to allow 48 hours (above 60°F) before handling, inflating, or packaging.
