Engineer Grade Reflective Sheeting is a lens-embedded glass bead retro reflective sheeting that conforms to ASTM D4956 Type I. Like 3M’s 3200 series, it is primarily used for non-critical traffic signs and commercial signs applications. Such as temporary traffic signs, graphic signs, commercial billboards and barriers, etc. Our Engineering Grade Reflective Sheeting have the following advantages:
● A variety of reflective sheet material options:
In addition to the PMMA and PET materials that meet the requirements of screen printing and plotter cutting, we also provide PVC Engineering Grade Reflective Sheeting for eco-solvent printing
Microprismatic reflective sheeting is a new breakthrough in retro-reflective sheet technology for mankind. It is different from the reflective principle of glass beads, which is a retro-reflective principle of light source realized by micro-prism structure. Its reflectivity far exceeds that of engineering grade and meets and exceeds ASTM D4956 Type 1 specification. It is used in many developed countries to replace many engineer grade reflective sheeting applications, such as commercial signs, non-critical traffic signs, and regulatory rigid traffic signs. Our engineer grade prismatic reflective sheeting has the following advantages.
● Rolling microprism mold production.
Our seamless reflective sheeting produced using roller microprism molds is brighter and more uniform than seam reflective sheeting.
● Customized reflective sheet materials.
We provide you with PET, PC, PMMA (acrylic) and other materials. Among them, PET material is more cost-effective.
● High reflectivity.
Our engineer grade prismatic reflective sheeting has a much higher reflectivity than engineer grade. The positive angle (0.2°, -4°) reflectivity of PC and PMMA materials is over 200cd/lx/㎡.
High intensity grade reflective sheeting is manufactured by a modified process and glass bead material and is known as lens sealed reflective film. It conforms to ASTM D4956 Type 3 specification. However, the limitations of glass bead technology also hindered the improvement of high intensity grade to higher brightness and better angularity. Therefore, the high intensity grade microprismatic reflective sheeting was born, which meets and exceeds ASTM D4956 Type 3 specification. They are widely used for stop signs and speed limit signs, non-regulated and commercial signs, construction work zones, non-critical traffic control rigid traffic signs, traffic signs, etc. Our high intensity grade reflective sheeting has the following advantages.
● Provide you with 2 types of high intensity grade reflective sheeting:
You can choose high intensity grade glass bead reflective sheeting or prismatic high intensity reflective sheeting according to the application
● Can be used on road cone plastic and rubber products:
PC high intensity glass bead reflective sheeting is commonly used on road cone plastic surface due to its softness property.
● High reflectivity:
The positive angle (0.2°, -4°) reflectivity of PC and PMMA prismatic high intensity reflective sheeting far exceeds 250cd/lx/㎡
HIP reflective sheeting complies with ASTM D4956 Type 4, it has outstanding reflectivity and can be seen from about 1000 feet away. Our high intensity prismatic reflective sheeting has the following advantages.
● HIP Grade PET reflective sheet material：
Suitable for engraving or screen printing process. It is the best choice for those who do not require high outdoor service life, because it is the most cost effective high intensity prismatic reflective sheeting.
● HIP Grade PC reflective sheet material：
HIP Grade PC reflective sheeting can not only be screen printed, but also UV digital printed, and it is widely used for conspicuity markings on vehicles because of its outdoor durability of about 5 years.
● HIP Grade PMMA reflectIve sheet material:
Because its outdoor weather resistance and light transmittance are better than other reflective sheet materials, most permanent traffic signs are made of PMMA high intensity prismatic reflective sheeting
Diamond grade reflective sheeting is a prismatic retroreflective material completed using a full prismatic structure. It combines the two characteristics of long-range and large-angle micro-prismatic reflective film to improve the reflective brightness at large incidence and observation angles while maintaining a large frontal brightness and easy detection at long distances. It is the best choice for traffic signs. Especially for high way signs, construction zone devices, delineators
Striped reflective sheeting is commonly used for barricade reflective signs, loading docks, bollards, dumpsters and vehicle conspicuous stripes, etc. And it can be customized with different stripe colors according to different applications. The most common colors are red/white, black/yellow, and red/fluorescent yellow-green. We can also customize the colors as well as their spacing according to your requirements.
The metalized retroreflective sheet is made of a single-layer metalized reflective sheet, no edge sealing required, and has a higher reflectivity. Very suitable for drawing contour lines or vehicle markings. And because of its flexible, it is often applied to helmet reflective stickers and road cone sleeves.
Commercial grade reflective sheet are also called advertising grade reflective sheet, reflective banner materials, economic grade reflective sheet , etc. It is used by advertising companies to replace non-reflective vinyl on roadside billboards, eliminating the need to use electrical energy to illuminate the billboards and reduce the cost of electricity. Commercial-grade reflective sheet are not only used in advertising banner materials, but also used in many non-compulsory traffic control signs, as well as customized cutting of various reflective decals.
Safety products that are both reflective and luminous are a boon to life safety at night. Most current traffic signs are made of reflective vinyl, which does not have luminous properties. We are proud to present to you a vinyl material that is both reflective and luminous. And it can meet the DOT C2 standard. It is widely used on reflective glow tape, reflective glow sticker, etc.
Digital printing reflective vinyl has been used for a long time, but because of not solving the problems of ink color, light transmission, and outdoor weather resistance, it is mainly used in the advertising industry, such as outdoor billboards, promotional architectural reflective signs, outdoor architectural reflective signs, etc.
With the improvement of digital printing technology level, the world’s great 3M, Avery, Orafol and other companies have successively developed digital printing reflective sheets that meet the use of traffic signs and provide customers with a complete set of solutions, including ink, printer, protective overlay films and other products.
We are proud that we have also successfully developed a complete solution for digital printing retroreflective sheeting. Provide customers with a one-stop traffic signs digital printing solution.
Protective Overlay Films, also known as transparent optical films, are ideal for protecting traffic signs. It not only allows the content printed on the surface of the traffic sign to be effectively isolated from the air, avoiding corrosion by direct contact with air and sewage. It is also a film that filters out a lot of UV rays, thus increasing the life of the traffic sign. It is usually used together with printable retro-reflective sheets.
Black film is often used in traffic signs, such as red/black warning signs, yellow/black traffic signs, white/black road signs, etc. Black film is ideal for these reflective signs, and it only needs to be cut by a plotter to complete the graphics for reflective signs. By now, some traffic signs are done by screen printing or digital printing, but many important traffic signs are still done by using black film because it has more stable outdoor weather resistance.

Retroreflective sheeting is also called reflective sheeting and reflective vinyl, which is able to retro-reflect light back to the position of the light source.
At present, the retroreflective sheet mainly realizes the retroreflection of light through a glass beads structure or a microprism structure.
FLIGHT offers retroreflective sheeting in many different colors and degrees of reflection intensity for a variety of traffic safety applications.
There are two main types of retroreflective sheets, namely glass bead retroreflective sheets and prismatic retroreflective sheets. Microprism retroreflective sheeting can be divided into metallized retroreflective sheeting and non-metallized retroreflective sheeting according to different processes.
● Glass bead retro
It is coated with glass beads on a metallized carrier film, then laminated with a PMMA or PC or PET film on the surface, and finally coated with adhesive and release paper on the back side.

● Metalized micro prism retroreflective sheet
Firstly, the prism structure of the microprism mold is transferred to the extruded film through an extrusion process, and then the layer is metalized to increase its reflectivity, and finally a layer of adhesive is coated on the back and a release liner is applied

● Non-metalized micro prism reflective sheeting
The first step is the same as the metalized micro prism reflective sheeting. The micro prism sheeting is first made, then the micro prism sheeting is laminated with the white film, and finally a layer of adhesive is coated on the back and a release liner is applied.

Different traffic sign applications have different requirements for retroreflective sheeting, which includes retroreflectivity coefficient, outdoor weather resistance of retroreflective material, and color. Therefore, we usually choose different grades of retroreflective sheeting according to the application.
Commercial Grade Reflective Sheeting - it is an economical reflective sheeting with short life span, usually used for weak solvent digital printing reflective billboards, such as fast-moving reflective advertising graphic, outdoor construction reflective signs, and promotional building reflective signs, etc
Engineering Grade (EG) Reflective Sheeting - It is also called ASTM D4956 Type 1 and is typically used for non-critical street and roadway signs. Examples include parking lot or wayfinding traffic control signs.
Engineering Grade Prismatic (EGP) Reflective Sheeting - Also known as Super Engineering Grade Reflective Sheeting, It provides reflectivity that is far superior to that of EG reflective film.
High Intensity Grade Reflective Sheeting - It is a lens-sealed glass bead reflective sheet that is ASTM D4956 Type 3 and has a unique "honeycomb" appearance.
High Intensity Prismatic Reflective Sheeting - Its trade name is High Intensity Prismatic or Microprismatic Grade, which also belongs to ASTM D4956 Type 3, but it has a higher reflectivity than High Intensity Grade Glass Beads Reflective Sheet.
High Intensity Prismatic (HIP) reflective sheeting - also known as ASTM D4956 Type 4 - is used on a wide variety of post-mounted traffic signs.
Diamond Grade (DG) Reflective Sheeting - It is the best retroreflective sheeting available, returning 60% of the light and is ideal for highway signs as well as sharp turns, pedestrian and school zones.
Metallized Reflective Sheeting - also known as Crystal Grade Reflective Sheeting. The metallized prism structure has higher reflectivity, and its single-layer structure has good waterproof performance. It is often used in safety helmets, crash buckets, traffic cone sleeve and other products.
Reflective Glow Sheeting - It is a new retro-reflective sheeting, not only can retro-reflect light, but also can glow, providing higher security for traffic safety. And it meets DOT C2 requirements and can be customized for different DOT C2 Reflective Glow Tape.
Usually, we compare which color of the reflective sheet has the best retroreflective coefficient, all referring to the same grade and material of the reflective sheet. Then just compare which color can reflect more visible light.
Glass Beads Reflective Sheeting - silver has the best retro-reflective coefficient.
Metallized microprism reflective sheeting - silver/gray has the best retroreflectivity than other colors.
Non-metallized micro-prismatic reflective sheeting - white has the best reflectivity
From the perspective of traffic safety, we choose the best retroreflective sheeting with higher retroreflectivity coefficient and better outdoor weather resistance. But in fact, we not only consider traffic safety but also consider the cost investment to choose the most suitable reflective sheeting vinyl.
Vehicle Conspicuity Marking - Usually, the corresponding retroreflective sheeting is selected for processing according to the requirements of different national traffic laws, such as the Americas according to DOT C2 requirements, the European Union according to ECE 104 requirements, the Middle East according to SASO 2913 requirements, etc.
Road Traffic Signs - usually choose High-Intensity Prismatic (HIP) reflective sheeting, which is the official choice of traffic signs reflective material in many countries.
Temporary Traffic Signs - it can choose from Engineering Grade (EG) Reflective Sheeting Or Engineering Grade Prismatic (EGP) Reflective Sheeting.
Warning Signs - it can choose from Engineering Grade (EG) Reflective Sheeting Or Engineering Grade Prismatic (EGP) Reflective Sheeting. High intensity reflective sheeting is also available.
Traffic Cone Sleeve - It requires retroreflective sheeting that is flexible and can be applied to curved surfaces, so we usually choose metalized retroreflective sheeting or reflective PVC sheet.
