As a special safety-related material, solas marine reflective tape is an indispensable product for maritime traffic safety. So how should everyone distinguish between the advantages and disadvantages when selecting solas marine reflective tape?
The professional certification of solas marine reflective tape is not only the basis of quality assurance, but also the key to market entry. Maritime films that are qualified to use in global seas generally need to have CCS, solars, uscg and other certifications at the same time, and they also need to meet IMO A.658. (16) Requirements for various performance indicators such as luminosity requirements, accelerated aging, seawater immersion, flexibility, tensile strength, adhesion strength, pressure adhesion, salt spray resistance, temperature resistance, and mildew resistance.
Identification method of good and bad solas marine reflective tape
Self-adhesive and cloth-based reflective tape:
Cut out a piece of reflective tape and rub it back and forth with both hands. After rubbing over a dozen or so times with counterfeit or inferior reflective tape, the outer film will basically come off. The genuine tape uses composite PU outer film and high-elastic polyurethane resin glue. The self-growing production cycle of more than ten days is basically integrated, and the outer membrane will not appear obvious detachment after rubbing several hundred times.
Self-adhesive solas marine reflective tape:
Cut off a piece of reflective tape, tear off the release paper, stick one end to a clean table, and pull the other end out. If it cannot be pulled or is easily torn off, it is fake or inferior. The genuine reflector has good ductility. .
How to replace fake and shoddy (aging) reflective tape:
Life jackets that use counterfeit and shoddy (aging) reflective tape can be replaced with self-adhesive solas marine reflective tape after removing the original cloth tape.
When removing the cloth-based reflective tape, do not cut the fabric, clean up the remaining thread, and cut it according to the length of the original sewn reflective tape, and cut the cut self-adhesive four corners into a circle to prevent the four corners from being easily tilted. Paste in place and press tightly. It is not easy to stick directly when the temperature is low. You can repeatedly use a hair dryer to properly heat (control at 80 ℃) to soften the glue and press it firmly to make it completely sticky, or use an electric iron with a piece of cloth and iron to prevent Temperature is too high.
The life jackets with counterfeit and inferior (aging) reflective tapes for thermal insulation are replaced with self-adhesive marine film reflective tapes. Type I insulation suits follow the above-mentioned lifejacket method, and type II insulation suits need to be glued before sticking with self-adhesive marine film reflective glue. The authentic solas marine reflective tape used on lifeboats and lifebuoys can reach a three-year service life. Therefore, the lifeboat reflective tape can be reasonably arranged to be replaced during ship repair, which will be safer and more convenient.
