♦ FAQ Guide of Reflective Sheeting


Retroreflective sheeting is self-adhesive retroreflective material, which is primarily used for traffic signages, this is to increase the nighttime visibility with the headlamps. This reflective sheeting also can apply for a scanning range of barcodes in the factory warehouse. Reflective sheeting is a kind of security film for the vehicle number plates, can be embossed and hot stamping onto aluminum, the watermarks always embedded into the reflective sheeting by XW Reflective, this is for the security purpose not to fraud the number plate.

The principle of retroreflection is reflecting light back towards its source, the simplest retroreflector is a glass sphere or bead, when a light beam, such as car headlight is directed at it, the majority of the light bounces off, but a certain amount of light will pass through the front surface, and it bent or refracted roughly towards the center of the rear surface. Some light hits the rear surface of the beads, refracted back to the original source.

Retroreflective sheeting is also called reflective sheeting, it is a self-adhesive reflective material, which is applied for road safety, vehicle registration plate, commercial signages, construction traffic warning signage.

Retroreflective sign face sheet material has two kinds of technologies, which are glass bead reflective sheeting and prismatic reflective sheeting. Prismatic is also a cube-corner reflector. The light such as the head beam entered close to the corners of the triangular base, reflected off the two nearest sides, and misses the third side. glass beads type reflective sheeting perform well on wide-angle, whereas prismatic reflective sheeting is much brighter,

Suitable substrate material.

It is recommended to stick on the clean and flat aluminum plate or stainless-steel plate after proper treatment. It is not recommended to stick directly on the surface of the plastic, rubber, wood, and other materials.

Of course, if you have demanded to past the reflective sheeting tape on other non-aluminum or non-stainless steel, please take measures according to the adaptability of the reflective film before pasting.

Treatment of substrate

The surface of the aluminum plate and stainless-steel plate just delivered is very smooth, which is not conducive to sticking. It is necessary to grind 400-500 sandpaper in a circular arc direction for pasting.

The reflective signs of the vehicle body shall be pasted on the surface of the car body which is free from obstruction, easy to see, flat and continuous, and free from dust, water, oil, rust, and paint layer warping.

Clean the substrate before laminating

Before pasting, the dust on the surface to be pasted shall be wiped off. The parts with oil stains and stains shall be removed with a soft cloth dipped in degreasing solvent or cleaning agent, and washed with clean water, and finally dried.

For the part where the paint has been soft, rusty, or warped, the paint shall be removed, the part shall be polished with sandpaper and antirust treatment shall be done, and finally, then the reflective sign of vehicle body could be pasted.

When you cannot paste directly.

When the surface of the car body can not be directly pasted with reflective marks, the body’s reflective marking should be pasted on the strip lining with a certain rigidity, strength, and anti-aging. Then the strip lining board is firmly pasted or riveted to the body.

Don’t affect the performance of the reflective sheeting

According to the introduction of the pasting method, the reflective sign of the car body shall not be drilled or slotted after pasting, otherwise, the performance of vehicle lighting and signal equipment will be affected.
