Coefficient of Retro reflection Testing Technique
Reflective value is an essential factor for reflective sheeting, Acrylic high-intensity reflective sheeting XW1800 is required to pass reflective value test according to ASTM D4956 Type III and EN12899 RA 2, our high-intensity reflective vinyl always exceed at least 20% of standard for each angle. XW Reflective factory is testing the reflective value during the production and final reflective material, also we keep the records.
Apply acrylic reflective sheeting samples onto bamboo stick, the reflective vinyl shows no peeling after 24 hours of adhesive reaction.
Material of Reflective sheeting
Reflective material categorizes into reflective fabric and reflective sheeting. The application are road safety and personal safety. Reflective Sheeting Signs is a reflective material dedicated to the traffic signs and license plate, made of a reflective layer formed by glass beads and some polymer materials like PVC, PET, Acrylic, PC, etc.
Features of Reflective Material
Reflective material always shows in our daily life as we all know, like car license plate application, the isolation barriers on both sides of the road, and some traffic reflective signs. And reflective material has 4 points features as below:
Diversity of reflective material
In order to match the characteristics and uses of other products, reflective material is manufactured as different reflectivity, flexible, durability reflective vinyl for daily necessaries application, usually divide into road safety and vehicle registration security. Such as construction safety sign, permanent traffic sign, barricades, traffic cones, car license plate, etc.
Durability of reflective sheeting
Reflective materials generally have good resistance to outdoor aging, abrasion and adhesion. It shows no appreciable cracking, scaling, pitting, blistering, edge lifting, or curling, or more than 1/32’’ shrinkage or expansion during its outdoor life. Moreover, reflectivity remains more than 50% of original results after outdoor life.
Wide-angle of reflective material
Reflective material usually has a better wide-angle, so that reflective sheeting or reflective fabric also can keep a good reflective effect, reflect light directly even there is a wide-angle between reflective film and lighting.
This wide-angle feature of reflective sheeting is applied to the production of traffic signage and car license plate, which improves safety on your roadway with bright, easy to understand the signage.
Reflective material tape can reflect original light under the lighting of headlamp light or road light. I think many drivers know that when you are driving on the highway. As the name suggests, reflectivity is one of the most important characteristics of reflective materials.
It is precisely because of the reflective nature that reflective materials can provide the most effective and reliable personal safety guarantee at night or in poor sight environments.
The above are the four most common characteristics of reflective materials. When designing, XW Reflective factory must consider these four points into the reflective material, so that these reflective tapes can be used better in our daily necessaries.
Service life of reflective tape: 1-10 years.
Generally speaking, the service life of the reflective film is range from 1-10 years depends on the surface film and weather conditions. For example, PET as top layers, the outdoor durability is 1-3 years, as its nature of PET.
Why different in reflective sheeting signs’ using life?
With the time goes, the reflective sheeting will decrease the reflection value during the usage under the non-protective environment. So XW Reflective divides different standards for this road reflective film according to the reflective value.
Standards of reflective sheeting tape.
The grade of reflective film can usually be followed by diamond grade, high intensity grade, engineering grade, economic grade, and other categories.
Of course, the raw reflective material using and selling price of reflective tape is different due to the different requirements of reflection value and outdoor life. For example, the high intensity grade reflective sheeting can be used for highway reflective signs, with high reflection parameter, asked a high price. But low reflective film is enough to made as reflective street signs.
In a word, you can choose different standards of reflective tape according to your needs.
Storage of reflective material
Road reflective sheeting film is a high-tech reflective product, a new type of functional composite material, with a rapid development in recent years in the world, play an important role at night safety. But reflective vinyl sheeting needs to be maintained well for better express its reflective function. So, we need to take the right measure to storage reflective sheeting vinyl rolls.
The first is the stacking of reflective films.
- It is best to be able to stack the carbons with reflective sheeting rolls in the same direction and horizontally in layers.
- It is strictly forbidden to stack crosses.
- It is strictly prohibited to stack reflective sheeting rolls’ cartons of different sizes together.
- Partially used reflective film rolls are required to return to the cartons with polybag protected.
- Unprocessed reflective sheets should be store flat.
- To avoid direct sunlight and damp storage environment. Reflective films should be stored in a cool, dry area, ideal at 18-24℃, and 30-50% humidity and should be applied within one year of purchase.
In fact, we also need to pay attention to a small detail before stacking, which is to handle lightly when handling to avoid collision. And check whether the package is damaged before handling.
Application of reflective sheeting:
Reflective sheeting is mainly used for various road and railway permanent or temporary traffic signs, construction zone signs, vehicle license plates, barricades, helmet stickers, etc.
The operating temperature of the reflective film sheeting:
Generally, reflective sheeting incorporates a pressure-sensitive adhesive and should be applied to the sign substrate, such as metal or aluminum at a temperature of 65°F / 18 ℃ or higher.
