RED EL tape

by ledtape on Wed May 05, 2021 3:02 pm

I purchased AdaFruit RED EL tape (#445) and it powers up as more orange than red. Any other similar products that would be more red? Anyone ever tried putting a red ranslucent plastic over a white EL tape to get a more red effect?

What length of the red EL tape product are you running and which inverter? That can make a difference.

The Flexi silicon might look a little more red.

I have used plastic filters (gels) over EL sheets and they do help.
