Join The Safety Revolution

Our Products

VizLite Dual Technology is a combination of phosphorescent and reflective technologies and is a revolution in safety.

Currently, Hi-Viz garments rely on fluorescent fabrics to enhance the wearer’s visibility in daylight, and retro-reflective materials to reflect back vehicle headlights in darkness. VizLite Dual Technology phosphorescence offers a third level of protection, when there is low light or no light, by giving off an intense glow for up to 8 hours, without the use of batteries. VizLite Dual Technology phosphorescence is charged by ultraviolet light after five to ten minutes of exposure.  There is a range of VizLite Dual Technology products to meet the needs of the global safety market.

 

The Three Levels of Visibility

Fluorescence

This type of technology absorbs and re-emits light energy immediately, to increase visibility in daylight. These bright fabrics make the wearer more conspicuous against the surrounding background. Fluorescence is a type of Photoluminescence similar to Phosphorescence but instead of storing UV energy the molecules in the fabrics absorb light at a specific wavelength and emitting light at a longer wavelength.  

Retro-reflectivity

Retro-reflective materials use either microscopic glass beads or plastic prisms to reflect light back to the source. The source is usually vehicle headlights. These types of materials will bounce light back at a range of angles to make the wearer visible in the dark. This technology relies on a light source to work. There is a wide range of different VizLite retro-reflective tapes that will work alongside VizLite DT phosphorescent materials.

Phosphorescence

VizLite DT phosphorescent materials absorb UV light energy from either natural or artificial light, which is then re-emitted as an afterglow in low light and dark conditions. The pigments used in VizLite DT phosphorescent have been formulated to a patent-pending recipe to ensure a quick charging time of 5 – 10 minutes, a strong level of afterglow brightness, extensive wash performance, and a long afterglow lasting up to 8 hours.
