Glass Bead DOT Tape

yellow glass bead dot tape

Heskins glass bead DOT tape, as the name suggests, uses microscopic glass beads. These beads are applied to the surface within honeycomb shaped grids which then bend a light source that shines at it and reflects it back.

The glass bead DOT tapes construction results in a reflection with a wider cone of light, limiting the distance of the retro-reflection values. However, while the wider cone of light isn’t as bright at long distances, it does reflect back at wider angles which is sometime preferred at shorter distances.

Many see this as a more economy version, which is far. But it still meets FMVSS regulations, and it’s construction also means it is cheaper to manufacture than microprismatic DOT tape.

When maintained properly, glass bead DOT tape can have a retro-reflective performance of up to 7 years! This is not a guarantee, and as mentioned, will have this durability only with correct maintenance.
