Our standard colour specification of Aquasign® underwater markers is Solis®, our UV-Stable subsea marker range.
Historically, Aquasign® subsea markers were manufactured using fluorescent dyes that would fade when exposed to direct sunlight (AltusTM range). Although the anti-fouling properties of the underwater label would remain the same, visibility subsea would be less effective.
Therefore, following completion of a successful research and development program, our Solis® specification was introduced utilising Signal Yellow dyes. The testing showed that the dyes used for Solis® do not fade when exposed to UV rays, and offered the same guaranteed high-visibility, quality and longevity as our traditional fluorescent range.
Our Solis® range is also included in our Aquasign® Performance Guarantee, with a two-year warranty from date of delivery that the colourants will not fade in direct sunlight exposure.
Protective covers are supplied with Solis® markers to ensure the surface remains clean, however can be removed at any time once installed without the risk of fading.
