3M 3150A - Self-adhesive
3M 6755 - Sew-on
Coast Guard approved for use at sea (but these tapes can be used on land just as easily).
SOLAS tapes have a reflective surface comprised of encapsulated glass lens beadlets.
They are specifically designed to enhance the visibility of life jackets, ring buoys, survival suits, and inflatable life rafts in marine environments.
The self-adhesive tape (3150A) is highly flexible and adheres to rubber- coated cloth, vinyl-nylon laminated cloth, cured polyester cloth, PVC, aluminum, and helmets.
The sew-on SOLAS (6755) offers all the same reflective qualities as 3150A, but with a flexible fabric backing.
Both SOLAS tapes are excellent for outerwear applications such as motorcycle jackets and rain gear. Sticks to nylon and codura.
Note: self-adhesive SOLAS tapes are not machine washable. Approximate thickness of 3150A is 11-mils and 6755 is 13-mils.
