Suppose you are one of them who wants to increase their visibility at night workouts. Or maybe if you are working in such areas having colossal traffic. Using a little sew on reflective tape can help you a lot with so many things.

  1. For boats and ships

The sew on reflective tape can not be directly sewn on to boats and ships, but with the external aid, this can be made possible. You can simply sew the tape on a piece of clothing and can simply tie it at the back or front of your boat. This can be of great help because if there is some reflective tape on your boat, an aerial search will easily find your boat. This is a good kind of step for your rafts and small vessels. Small boats are usually not identifiable by radar by large ships because they are mainly constructed of non-metallic materials and also because their size is small. In poor weather conditions, they are often not visible because of mist. When they are in the hollow of a blade and even in good visibility, the fact that they are very low on the horizon makes them difficult to see from the bridge of a large ship. At night, their navigation lights may well go unnoticed because of shore lights in the background. It is important that small boats use radar reflectors to signal their presence to other vessels in the area, especially in poor visibility. This is why sew on reflective tape or any tape for that matter can improve your visibility.

And another reason why the testing is so necessary is that because you want your tape to be perfect and free from all other kinds of flaws. So, in this case, we have different methods of testing a tape. I would like to appreciate the one we have here.

Now there can be two ways to do it. One is testing it in real life, and the other is testing it in the lab. Now you must do it both. The one test that matters a lot is the testing of the real world.
