Microprismatic DOT Tape

Microprismatic DOT tape is different from glass bead DOT tape, as its surface is covered in man-made, 3 point prisms instead of glass beads. This makes microprismatic DOT tape a more specific, high intensity, long distance light reflection tape. Its surface is covered in accurate, man-made, 3 point prisms, and when the light bends and reflects inside these, it returns 80% of the light straight back to the source, making the reflection much brighter.

When maintained properly, microprismatic DOT tape can have a retro-reflective performance up to 10 years! Please note, this is not a guarantee performance lengths will vary dependent on your maintenance routines.

It is this level of performance that makes micro-prismatic DOT tape the preferred choice of OEMs.

Metalized & Sealed Microprismatic DOT Tape

Heskins offer two variants of the microprismatic DOT tape; metalized and sealed.  The differences are subtle, but are vital pieces of information to help you decide between the two.

Sealed Microprismatic DOT Tape

  • White appearance
  • More rigid
  • Slightly higher reflective levels

Metalized Microprismatic DOT Tape

  • Silver appearance
  • Thinner material
  • More pliable

While we mention that the sealed microprismatic DOT tape has slightly higher reflective levels, the difference is minor.
