1″ x 15′ roll of SUPER-ENGINEERING GRADE SAFETY REFLECTIVE TAPE – white (srse1w) is a Type II retro-reflective adhesive tape.
Used for hula-hoop reflective effects but we recommend our NEW stretchy and conformable 3M engineering grade reflective tape for the best reflective effects !
It is twice as reflective as ordinary engineering grade, but only 20% more in cost.
We offer super-engineer grade reflective tape in 6 bright colors (and 3M black in engineer grade).
It is thin (5.5 mil) and conformable and has permanent acrylic adhesive with a peel-off backing.
It utilizes embedded microscopic glass beadlets to reflect light and is used on highway signage, fire trucks, mail trucks, motorcycles, gates, bikes, helmets, and signs (but not recommended on rough-finished wood).
White, yellow, red, and green meet FHA specifications for highway signage; reflectivity (Type II), resistance to weathering, and longevity (12-year minimum), and exceed ASTM specifications D 4956 and LS-300C.
Blue has 10-year and orange a 3-year life warranty.
Tape should be applied when it and the substrate are within the temperature range of 64°F to 77°F, but it is service rated from -40ºF to 180ºF.
To maximize longevity, the adhesive should be allowed to cure 48 hours before being put into service.
The brightest reflecting color is white, followed by yellow, orange, red, green, blue, and 3M black engineer grade.
Tape is sold in 15-foot increments and, by special order, 50-yd rolls.
REFLECTIVE SHAPES cut from safety reflective tape – are easy to make using scissors or shape- and die-cutters available at your local hobby and crafts stores.
Many shapes are available, and letters and numbers too.
Super-engineering grade reflective tape is thin, flexible, easy to apply, and won’t fall off in the middle of the night.
It adheres well to clothing, costumes, T-shirts, and jackets and is easy to remove later (but is not wash-proof).
