Why an IR.Tools™ IR patch?  We use an exclusive proprietary process called SandStorm Technology™.  

 A SandStorm Technology™ patch is guaranteed to not fall apart and will endure a long deployment. This process utilizes new materials to produce an IR glow tape built directly onto a reflective backing, leaving no air gaps. As a result, this solid film resists water, sand, and debris from destroying your patch.  

We will take your logo and convert it into your custom IR patch… printed or laser cut

You choose the film, version, style, and design… we do the rest! 

Over 200 standard flag patches available also.
