Help create a more visible world.
Help enhance the visibility of the wearer in night-time or low-light conditions when illuminated by headlights with highly retroreflective microprisms formed on flexible, glossy and UV-stabilized polymeric film.
Easy to apply to rigid substrates — simply peel and stick for non-permanent adhesion — these wide-angle exposed retroreflective lenses are bonded to an adhesive.
Retroreflectivity helps the eye perceive objects in low-light conditions when they are illuminated by a light source. In more scientific terms, retroreflection occurs when light rays are returned in the direction from which they came.
Retroreflective materials appear brightest to an observer near the original light source, such as a car’s headlights. Since very little light is scattered when the light is returned, retroreflective materials enhance the contrast of the wearer for an observer near the original light source.
