Heskins Microprismatic Tape, commonly referred to as EGP reflective tape, is highly-reflective, returning up to 80% of light back to the source. The tape performs much longer than standard reflectors, with a retro-reflective performance of up to 5 years.

The tape surface is covered in micro-engineered 3 point prisms that return light in a concentrated cone, increasing safety and ensuring visibility. Apply on any smooth, clean, dry flat surface such as:

Static objects:

  • Posts
  • Barricades
  • Poles
  • Machinery
  • Floors
  • Clothing

Moving objects:

  • Buses
  • Trucks
  • Motorcycles
  • Boats and more

See the Heskins range of accessories for additional help during application, pro-longing the life of anti-slip tapes and line markings. The range consists of primers, edge fixing, mallets, rollers etc.

Features & Benefits

Colours and Specification Limits:

Sheeting Orientation:

The American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) has recognized that some retroreflective films are rotationally (orientation) sensitive. Because this impacts sign luminance AASHTO has defined a specification to measure orientation performance. Figure C shows how the orientation sensitivity is measured. For a film to be considered rotationally insensitive, the average percent difference (shown in Figure C) must be less than or equal to 20%

Figure C:

When measured for orientation sensitivity as described in AASHTO M 268-10, all Heskins LLC sheeting, both beaded and prismatic, pass the specification as rationally insensitive. Therefore, no special identification marks or other features (such as a datum mark, or distinctive seal pattern) are required to denote optimum orientation for sheeting. Because the user can expect visual uniformity regardless of orientation, no costly and cumbersome fabrication techniques are required to orient sheets, cut sign legend or border tape during sign fabrication.

Specifying agencies and sign fabricators are cautioned that some retroflective sheetings, even of the same ASTM ‘’Type’’ may not provide consistent luminance for desired night visibility if the sheeting is not applied in the optimal, or in uniform orientation. Agencies and fabricators should be aware of this concern and discuss the potential effects of rotation on luminance of specific sheetings with their material supplier before beginning installation and/or fabrication.
