SOLAS (safety of life at sea) is a coast guard approved, marine grade retro reflective tape that is designed for off shore applications on ships, boats, and commercial vessels. SOLAS comes only in a white (grey/silver) color. It is grey in the daytime, and very bright white when reflecting. SOLAS film is not for signs, therefore it is not typed by ASTM. Instead, it is governed by International Maritime Organization (IMO), the Coast Guard, and Homeland Security. SOLAS by Oralite comes in three types. 1403 Adhesive for hard surfaces, 1403 Sew On for Garments, and 1404 Flexible for Zodiacs, Survival Suits, Etc.. A spec sheet for Oralite 1403 and 1404 is below.
