Light Tape - the revolutionary light bulb technology as a credit card, in any color, that you can bend around any surface, for hundreds and hundreds of feet, indoors or outdoors, that costs only a fraction of what traditional bulbs cost to operate.
Light Tape was Launched and promoted in Electronics Rocks' 2012 (Aug 30th and 31st) organised by Electronics for you Magazine.
"We have stuff that companies like DuPont can't figure out," said Steve Pendlebury, President and co-founder of Richmond-based Light Tape. "I still sometimes pinch myself." Only when he can squeeze in the time.
Remember the glowing suits in Tron: Legacy? They were built with a relatively new technology called Light Tape where the entire surface of the tape (safe for a tiny border used to seal in the phosphors) glows with a very uniform and bright light. They are incredibly efficient for the amount of light they produce.

Lit for Purpose: From lasers to LED, the latest technology allows for stunning and stylish lighting effects for bars and clubs
Illuminated stair nosings have been available for many years using LEDs but they have always been bulky, complicated, high maintenance and expensive. LumaGripTM is set to change this with a range of illuminated inserts that replace existing infill in standard Aluminium and uPVC nosings. LumaGripTM also comes with the added benefits of having a higher anti-slip rating and a glare free illumination.
Reduce CO2 Output, Reduce Light Pollution, Reduce Environmental Pollution, How? Start Specifying Light Tape® With the Delegates gathering in Copenhagen, for the climate change summit itís about time we started looking at little known alternative technologies like Electroluminesence
Light Tape® is changing the way architects, developers and consulting engineers think of a light bulb.
Light Tape UK Limited and ProGrip Systems are pleased to announce the launch of a new range of illuminated, Anti–Slip stair treads called PolyLight, available as Inserts for Aluminium Stair Nosing and as Full Depth GRP Anti-Slip Treads.
Electro-LuminX have come up with a new way to light things up. Literally! They have recently unveiled the Light Tape, which is actually light on a tape. These stripes can be fastened on any surface and even rolled out. It has more applications than LED or neon lights and will certainly make your Xímas tree glow. The Light Tape is thinner than a credit card and has a bend radius of 2m. It uses the same technology used in plasma TVís, electroluminescence (EL) as its light source and ELs generate light by electrically stimulating light emitting phosphors. The phosphors are located between two electrically conductive plates and applying alternating current activates the system, to produce light. At least one of the electrodes consists of a light transmissive conductive material allowing the light to escape.
ITASCA, Ill. - Do you want the thinnest light bulb available in a wide variety of widths, lengths and shapes? Light Tape is a flat lightbulb utilizing electroluminescent (EL) technology manufactured in tapes (.25" to 6" wide), panels (up to 24" wide) and custom shapes and sizes.
Think of a light bulb you can wrap around your finger or roll-out to create a display that would rival the Griswalds' efforts in Christmas Vacation. Light Tape is an extremely flexible lighting strip that has seemingly more applications than LED or neon lighting systems. Thinner than a credit card, and with a bend radius of 2mm, Light Tape can go just about anywhere – indoors and outdoors. It's even wearable.
Light Tape is a new type of lighting that is completely different from the conventional light 'bulb' in that it is as thin as a credit card and completely flexible. It works using electroluminescence - a way to produce light by using electrical energy to excite light-emitting phophors. The light tape is made of plastic and contains no gasses, glass or mercury. Light tape gets its name from the fact that is a light and functions and looks like tape. It can be fastened to any surface and is available in many lengths, widths and colors.
Edge Lit Acrylic Signs have traditionally been illuminated with bulky fluorescent tubes, which limited their application and were expensive to run and maintain.
Light Tape is a new and environmentally friendly source of illumination that comprises a metal ribbon coated in Sylvania phosphor, which is encapsulated in a Honeywell laminate.
The Elektron Towers project is highly renowned property development group Barratt Homes' outstanding new London Dockland's development of 437 apartments on the Thames Riverside overlooking Canary Wharf. The west tower of which is located directly on the Meridian Time Line and to highlight this Light Tape has been fitted to the North and South face of the building.
Edge Lit Acrylic Signs have traditionally been illuminated with bulky fluorescent tubes which limited their application and were expensive to run and maintain.
Light Tape, uses one tenth of the power and is less than half the price of Neon and Cold Cathode display lighting, it is easier to install and maintain, reduces light pollution, is fully recyclable, uses No Gas, No Glass and No Mercury.
The Light Tape, ground breaking electroluminescent lighting solution, is a unique wafer thin light bulb which is set to revolutionize the use of light in Entertainment, Display, Exhibition, Signage, Safety, Sport, Point of sale advertising and architecture, to name but a few areas of application.
Installed on the Beetham West Tower in Liverpool Light Tape provides an easy to install, easy to maintain system that can be seen for miles and only uses 2 Watts per meter for an ultra low carbon footprint of only 600 Watts for the whole building.
In March 1986, Coast Guard R & D Center engineers deployed two prototype electroluminescent lighting arrays on the main span of the Poplar Street Bridge in St. Louis Harbor. THe objective was to demonstrate the concept of extended light sources as applied to aids-to-navigation engineering.
Sitting above the end zone, drenched in the hammering rain at Super Bowl XLI in early February, Steve Pendlebury had come to the moment he'd been waiting for: halftime. As Prince began his 12-minute performance, 100 members of the Florida A&M University marching band each hit a button on their belt. Doing so activated a 9-volt battery, which lit up strands of glowing tape wrapped around their uniforms.
If you have ever found yourself rolling down West Main Street after dark, you have probably noticed that ominous neon glow from the lighting of the numerous Fan bars whirring by your windows. The lighting of one particular bar, however, is noticeably different than the rest.
