At Heskins, we believe in pushing the boundaries of safety and visibility. Today, we are thrilled to announce the result of our relentless hard work and dedication – the upcoming availability of our DOT-approved conspicuity tape in a revolutionary micro-prismatic format. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the intricacies of this cutting-edge product, highlighting its advantages and potential applications.

A Shift in Conspicuity Tape Technology

First, let’s address the fundamental difference between our existing C2 conspicuity reflective DOT tape and the groundbreaking newcomers. While our existing DOT tape utilizes a glass bead format, the upcoming products harness the power of micro-prismatic technology.

Decoding Micro-Prismatic Technology

But what exactly is micro-prismatic technology? At its core, micro-prismatic tape features an array of micro prisms, each resembling the corners of a cube. These prisms enable light to reflect from within the three sides, directing it back toward the light source. While the prisms don’t precisely return the light to its point of origin, they employ a three-point method of reflection, resulting in a cone of reflected light directed toward the original light source. This ingenious design enhances reflective properties and substantially improves visibility.

The Advantages of Micro-Prismatic DOT Tape

So, what advantages do these micro-prismatic products bring to the table?

  1. Superior Reflection Properties

Micro-prismatic technology excels, especially at acute angles, ensuring optimal visibility even in challenging conditions.

  1. Customization Options

Thanks to their construction, these tapes can be customized with red logo/text on a red base or white logo/text on a white base. The sealed-film type offers a pure white hue, an appealing choice for major trailer manufacturers seeking to elevate the crispness and value of their products.

Samples Available Now

Excited to see these innovative products in action? You’re in luck! Samples of our micro-prismatic DOT tape are now available. Don’t hesitate to inquire and witness the exceptional quality firsthand.

Geographic Considerations

For those involved in the production of equipment destined for European or African markets, it’s important to note that ECE104 approved tape is required. This tape boasts a different color range and necessitates a separate approval certificate with distinct test values. Our UK sister company, Heskins Ltd, is in the process of obtaining ECE104 approval, and once secured, we will stock ECE104 conspicuity tape for US-based exporters.
