Outdoor Vinyl tape, does it glow under black light / UV light

Tape Planet 3 mil calendared intermediate film with permanent acrylic adhesive. Resistance to mild alkalies and acids, most petroleum-based greases and oils, and salt spray. This semi-gloss level is specially designed for readability on banners, store fronts and most signage. This intermediate has lower shrinkage and better color stability than other intermediate films resulting in 6 year durability. The excellent weed ability of intermediate films is due to the balance of a specially formulated high performance acrylic adhesive and tighter formulated release liner. Small letters cut better and you never lose registration due to letters moving on the release paper.


Here is what some of the colors look like under normal light.

Craft ideas. Kids birthday / Christmas lollypop decoration

These were fun to make. Giant lollypop decorations for a kids birthday party, then I am going to save them for Christmas candy land decorations. Dollar store pool noodles, some duct tape, a broom handle and a heat shrink bag. Only got a few blisters from the hot glue gun. I don't know how well they will hold up outside so I sprayed them with a clear UV protective coating. Now I hope they make it through the party without being destroyed by the kids.

Cloth Hockey stick tape, does it glow under black light / UV light

Cloth hockey stick tapes are specialized tapes used on hockey stick handles to improve grip and on hockey blades to improve puck control. The cohesive soft grip hockey tape sticks to itself but not to the hockey stick. The cloth hockey stick tape has adhesive and wraps tighter and stays on longer. Our performance hockey stick tapes are formulated to provide optimum performance on modern composite hockey sticks and blade, as well as traditional wood and fiberglass blades. The manufactures give their colors names like Fluorescent XXX or Neon XXX. This does not mean they will glow under a black light / UV light.

Here is an example of how some cloth hockey stick tapes react to a black light. Starting on the left and going down:
FL yellow, FL pink, FL orange and FL green
Camo winter, American flag, Skuls, camo pink, camo green, Canada and camo blue
yellow, grey / silver and white

Valentines or Mothers Day, Duct Tape Roses are the perfect handmade gift.

Duct Tape Rose

Duct tape roses can last forever and make a great handmade gift. Just don't leave them in a hot car in Florida. Here is my pattern. You can use any pattern or solid color duct tape.

Cut 15 pieces at 3.5 inches long. Cut 3 pieces of green at 1 x 3 inches.
Take the 15 pieces and fold then over so only 1/2 inch of adhesive is left.
Using scissors, round off the corners on the fold.
Use a straw or pen and cover the end with 2 pieces of the green tape.
Attach the pedals to the pen. Place the middle of the pedal on the pen and then wrap each side around it. Continue adding pedals using your finger for spacing.
Wrap the last piece of green tape around the bottom of the flower. Fun!
