Tenacious Tape™  Reflective Tape by Gear Aid® is a reflective fabric tape that allows you to add reflectivity to fabric and non-fabric surfaces. This safety marking utilizes glass bead reflective technology to reflect light. In addition, Tenacious Tape Reflective meets the ANSI/ISEA 107 standard for high-visibility safety apparel as required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The ultra-aggressive adhesive sticks to almost any surface without peeling, so you can stay visible and add reflectivity to all your favorite items.


We recommend the following for application:

1) Begin by cleaning the application area with isopropyl alcohol to remove any dirt or body oils which may prevent a good bond. Trim any loose threads.

2) Cut out your desired shape. 

3) Apply the Tenacious Tape Reflective patch with finger pressure.

4) Smooth out any bubbles and ensure the edges lay flat. The adhesive will reach full strength after 24 hours.
