Improve visibility in your workplace with our Reflective Microprismatic Tape. Designed with high and focused retroreflective values, this tape is exceptionally versatile and can be used in a number of applications. Primarily, it can be affixed to static or moving objects to improve visibility and minimise the risk of injury in varying environments. The key benefits of this tape over other options comes from its unique construction. It features a micro-engineered 3-point prism design which covers the entire surface. Each prism actively reflects light in such a way that up to 80% of the light is reflected back to the source. In essence, this produces a tape that is exceptionally reflective and highly visual, even in low light conditions.
This tape has been tested and shown to achieve the same retroreflective performance, even after 5 years. It can also be referred to as EGP or engineering grade prism tape. This name indicates that it is long-lasting, hard wearing and suitable for demanding environments. The tape can affix to any hard, flat and clean surface. This includes poles, machinery, floors, vehicles and even clothing. We supply this tape in a range of sizes with widths between 19mm and 1210mm and lengths up to 45m. We also offer bespoke and custom order options If you have any questions about the Reflective Microprismatic Tape, get in touch with the team here today. We'll help you find the right safety solution for your needs in our online store.
1) Material Storage
Ensure the material is kept in dry, warm conditions in the original protective packaging.
2) Surface Preparation
A clean, dry surface is essential. Use an IPA cleaner to remove all surface contaminants (paint flakes, etc) – DO NOT use methylated spirits/petrol/lighter fluid etc., as these leave behind a thin, greasy residue. Ensure prepared surface is above 10°C.
3) Porous Surface Sealing
Porous surfaces must be sealed prior to application to prevent water attacking the adhesive. Toluene based primers are ideal - we recommend our own product for this job. Apply a thin coat to the cleaned surface using a paint brush, then leave to dry.
4) Tape Application
Peel back part of the release liner then press the adhesive firmly onto the prepared surface, and slowly keep peeling back the liner while applying the tape. Try to ensure that the tape is not taut.
Once applied, press tape down firmly using even pressure (decorating rollers are excellent for this). We recommend sealing the edges using ‘edge fix’ as this will extend the life of the product. Only use a small amount down the edges, a thin bead.
If correctly applied, the new anti-slip surface can be walked on instantly, you will get maximum benefit from the adhesive system after 48 hours.
