The thinnest, widest, and longest, light in the world. LightTape® lamps redefine electroluminescent technology. Manufactured utilizing a novel continuous coating process resulting in ultra-low-profile, lightweight panels and strips that seamlessly and evenly illuminate from edge to edge over long distances.
How Does LightTape® Work?
Electroluminescence (EL) is a means of generating light by the electrical excitation of light emitting phosphors, similar to how Plasma televisions are backlit today. In this case, the light emitting phosphors are located between two electrically conductive plates. Applying an alternating (A.C.) current activates the system producing light. At least one of the electrodes consists of a light transmissive conductive material allowing the light to escape.
Why are LightTape® Lamps so Revolutionary?
LightTape® is the most energy efficient and versatile light bulb ever developed! LightTape® Lamps and animated signs are at the leading edge of global quality, reliability and service standards.
Incredible energy savings.
One hundred meters of standard 1" LightTape® lamp consumes less than a 100 watt light bulb! LightTape® is the most energy efficient form of lighting available today. Typical energy consumption is less than 0.25 ma / sq. in.
Uniform surface lighting.
LightTape® backlighting systems uniformly backlight onyx, engineered materials and signage. Fits in almost any space at less than 0.02" thick! No more hot or dark spots and does not generate heat.
We have engineered LightTape® to work outside as well as inside. A logical replacement for traditional neon or other accent lighting. Quick, easy, do it yourself! Try our Snap-N-Light systems.
Lasts for years, no maintenance.
LightTape® Systems last for years with virtually no maintenance required while providing low energy operation. No more emergency calls to your repairman because part or all of your lights went out last night!
Long runs, only one connection!
Imagine a single 100 meter run of LightTape® powered by a single power supply and connected only at one end. And, the brightness will not vary over the length of the lamp. Accent your venue in a matter of minutes with just one connection!
Electro-LuminX manufactures LightTape® in the US to ensure optimal quality standards. After 12 years of engineering and development, we have a stable and repeatable process to ensure world-class quality. The lamp and processes are patent protected and manufacturing is controlled by ISO9001:2000 processes.
Why is LightTape® Unique?
Combine Electro-LuminX's patented technology and manufacturing processes with the best materials available and you get LightTape® Lamps. We utilize GTP's premium quality light emitting phosphors and Honeywell's Encapsulate Systems to guarantee that we deliver the highest quality lamp possible to our customers
LightTape® lamps are changing the way people think of a light bulb. Imagine a light bulb as thin as a credit card, in any colour, 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. In fact, it is the most important innovation in light since the invention of the bulb.
Or imagine your individualised creative sign artwork with animated illumination to command attention at a point of purchase or anywhere you need it.
LightTape® Energy Consumption Comparison
LightTape® is the most inexpensive, energy efficient lighting option available, costing only about $80 a year. Compared to fluorescent and neon lighting, both costing about $1700 annually, LightTape® is a bargain! Even LEDs, the “energy efficient” choice, costs about $500 a year to operate.
Our base colours are Classic Natural Blue and Extreme Blue-Green. Both these colours appear white when off and coloured when illuminated. We then add a filter to produce the specific colour options. All other colours with the exception of Classic Media White remain that colour when not illuminated.
LightTape® Overlay Colour Guide
Please see below our latest colour guide for both our Classic and Extreme Series LightTape®. Custom colour and widths are available but may be subject to minimum order quantities, set-up fees and approval testing.
NOTE: Colours may not appear as an exact match on screen or in print due to varying resolutions. Light
LightTape® sizes are quoted by illuminated width which is typically 1/8” (3mm) per side less than the finished or laminated width. When ordering please specify: illuminated width, illuminated colour, interior or exterior lamp, length of each lamp, total number of connections and input power required AC or DC.
LightTape® Standard Sizes
LightTape® is produced in the standard sizes as indicated on the chart below, our minimum order quantity is 8m (25ft). Maximum standard roll length for ease of handling is 30m (100ft). Custom sizes are available please contact a member of our team for a detailed costing.
For quotation purposes, LightTape® is always specified by illuminated width. For installations where space may be restricted, make sure to take into account the finished or laminated width.
Considerations when Ordering
- • Installation location - Interior or Exterior
- • Desired illuminated colour
- • Illuminated width item number
- • What length for each LightTape® lamp?
- • Total number of lamps required
- • Power Input - AC or DC? What input voltage?
- • Extension connection tabs for backlighting applications are standard at 2” long, allowing connector to be hidden.
- • Please advise if longer tab lengths are required.
Our Smart Driver power supplies are engineered to illuminated LightTape. All units are rated by area in Square Inches and can drive single or multiple sections of lamp. Available in a variety of models our AC units offer a both DMX and Dimming functions. A range of DC powered units is also available.
