Last week I was discussing Ecoglo durability with one of our distribution partners. Unlike the failures pictured above, Ecoglo products don’t fail – why is that?

The patented manufacturing process used to make Ecoglo’s products is known as High Temperature Curing or HTC.

HTC involves the precisely controlled application of a powder mix of customised photoluminescent pigments and customised carriers onto an aluminium base.

The polymer mix and aluminium base pass through a bespoke oven to be baked at  temperatures above 160C. This high temperature curing process integrally bonds the polymer mix to the aluminium, eliminating the possibility of peeling, shrinkage or delamination. It also provides permanent protection of the photoluminescent pigments from degradation due to moisture or weathering.
These performance properties cannot be guaranteed  for photoluminescent PVC products, tapes and liquid applied products.

HTC products that won’t suffer from shrinkage, delamination or discolouring and are therefore more durable delivering higher and more reliable luminance and visibility.
