What is Reflective Tape?

reflective sheetingReflective tape is usually used in the traffic safety industry to make the products easier to be seen during the day and night.  The reflective collars as they can be called, are usually at the top of the product and can be seen on traffic cones, traffic barricades and more.

I would also like to point out there is reflective sheeting like what is pictured to the left, where it is an orange and white stripe and this is typically seen on a barricade.  Now a straight orange or straight white colored reflective collar is something you will see on traffic cones or delineators.

There are also different grades: Engineer grade is the most basic but works for most applications.  Hi Intensity sheeting is one step above, will reflect more and costs more.  Diamond grade has the highest amount of reflective and will cost the most.
