Product Description

Fluorescent Yellow and Orange Conspicuity Tape

Alanson Products Reflective Material - Super Intensity Prismatic Vehicle Conspicuity MarkingTape SPFLY is in fluorescent color, high-visibility, highly reflective, weatherproof, self-adhesive films with excellent corrosion and solvent resistance. The smooth surface allows a very good printability. The retro reflective system consists of sealed cells of air backed micro prisms, using total internal reflection. The distinct shape of the sealing identifies the machine direction.

Photometries

Daytime Color (x,y,Y)

The chromaticity coordinates and total luminance factor of the retroreflective tape conform to Table A Daytime Color Specifications Limit (see Note 1).

Color Test – Ordinary Colored Tape Conformance to standard chromaticity (x, y) and luminance factor (Y %) requirements shall be determined by instrumental method in accordance with ASTM E 1164 on tape applied to smooth aluminum test panels.

The values shall be determined on a spectrophotometer.

Computations shall be done for CIE Illuminant D65 and the 2° standard observer (see Note 2)

Note 1: The four pairs of chromaticity coordinates determine the acceptable color in terms of the CIE 1931 Standard Colormetric System.

Note 2: The instrumentally determined color values of retroreflective tape can vary significantly depending on the make and model of colorimetric spectrophotometer as well as the color and retro reflective optics of the tape.


Coefficients of Retroreflection (RA)

The values in Table B and C are minimum coefficients of retroreflection expressed in candelas per lux per square meter (cd/lux/m2).

Coefficients of Retro reflection (Required by North American Market)

Conformance to coefficient of retro reflection requirements shall be determined by instrumental method in accordance with ASTM E-810 “Test Method for Coefficient of Retroreflection of Retroreflective Tape”, and per E-810 the values of 0° and 90° rotation are averaged to determine the RA in Table B

Maintenance

Cleaning

Routine washing is recommended for maximum performance. The following cleaning methods are recommended.

  • Wash with sponge, cloth or soft brush using water and detergent.
  • Automatic truck/car wash or standard high-pressure hand spray:

Maximum pressure-1200 PSI/ 80 bar.

Maximum water/wash solution temperature- 140°F/ 60°C.

Minimum of 12 inches/ 30cm distance of cleaning jet(s) from markings.

Cleaning wand or jets to be at no greater angle than 45 degrees from perpendicular to the marking surface.

  • When using metal brighteners, follow manufacturer’s recommendations for dilution.

Thoroughly rinse from markings after soaking vehicle.


Storage
  • Cool, dry area out of direct sunlight.
  • Temperature 65-75°F (18-24°C) humidity 30-50%.
  • Store rolls horizontally, in carton or in original packaging.

Shelf Life
  • Apply Alanson Products Reflective Material – Super Intensity Prismatic Vehicle Conspicuity Markings Tape within two years of receipt of material.

General Performance Considerations

Alanson Products Reflective Material – Super Intensity Prismatic Vehicle Conspicuity Tape will provide maximum durability when:

  • Recommended procedures are followed.
  • Marking is applied to vertical surfaces.

Actual durability will be based on actual customer use, field testing, exterior exposed testing and artificial weathering testing.

Durability can be reduced if recommended techniques are not followed:

  • Failure to cut markings around rivets, seams and body are panels.
  • Improper use of high pressure cleaning.
  • Spillage of chemicals or solvents.
  • Improper application or surface preparation.
