Using Our Flow Indicator Tapes

All of our flow indication tapes are printed with bold black arrows to identify flow direction - simply apply the tape to your pipeline in the correct position to show which way its contents are travelling.

Our pipeline flow indicator tapes are colour-coded, with different colours indicating different types of liquid/gas within the pipeline itself. Here's a handy guide to what each colour means:

  • Ochre (08C35) - Gases (not including air)
  • Green (12D45) - Water
  • Light Grey (10A03) - Steam
  • Violet (22C37) - Acid/Alakali
  • Red (04E53) - Fire Services
  • Light Blue (20E51) - Air
  • Brown (06C39) - Mineral Oils

Our flow indication tape is made of 90 micron self-adhesive vinyl with a rubber-based adhesive and a clear polypropylene surface laminate. The tapes have an operating temperature range of -10°C to +50°C, and they can be used on:

  • Pipes
  • Drain Valves
  • Ducting
  • Flange Joints
