Detection Tape History

The technology for Nitto's first detection tape, hydrogen, was developed as a joint collaboration between NASA Kennedy Space Center and the University of Central Florida. NASA was looking for a new way to detect hydrogen leaks, as hydrogen fuel is commonly used for space shuttles. Since then, Nitto has developed the technology into a pressure sensitive adhesive tape that is used to easily detect hydrogen gas leaks. Nitto has designed gas detection tapes with color-changing technology that are an intuitive addition to leak detection and monitoring systems.
