When it comes to Vehicle and Conspicuity Marking Tapes, you cannot go past 3M's premium range, 983 Rigid Edge Sealed Series. The 983 Series are continuous rigid tape, perfect for increasing visibility and safety on virtually any hard surface.
The innovative Class 1A Diamond Grade™ microprismatic sheeting provides superior reflectivity where the utmost visual effectiveness is required day and night, alerting more road users faster and earlier. They also have excellent weather resistance and no dirt and water penetration due to edge sealing. The pressure sensitive adhesive allows for easy application to trucks, trailers and large vehicles. The new mini roll sizes 3m and 15m also can be used on other hard surfaces such as gates, barriers and posts, and workplace machinery. Before applying, ensure that the rigid surfaces, (typically are either aluminium, stainless steel and automotive paint) ,are clean, smooth, flat and dimensionally stable. Avoid low surface energy plastics.
The 983 series meet a range of compliance requirements: Australian Design Rule 13/00, 2005, ATA Industry Technical Council Advisory Procedure for Heavy Vehicle Visibility, and UNECE R104 Mandatory European regulations.
