What You Need to Know About Conspicuity Tape for Emergency Vehicles

The conspicuity tape for emergency vehicles consists of retroreflective sheeting that complies with ECE 104 Class C, which means that it reflects incident light with great intensity. There are also some contour marking films in fluorescent colours. These tapes are highly visible during day and night.

 

For marking emergency or rescue service vehicles you can choose between segmented (sticker) and continuous reflective film. In order to make the application of segmented conspicuity tape more user-friendly, the tape is fitted with application tape. So you do not have to apply every sticker separately but can affix all stickers in a row.

Thanks to the powerful adhesive, the conspicuity tape is suitable for even and curved surfaces. If adhered to the user guidelines, the stickers and marking tape can be used for several years (about 7-10 years). Please note, that fluorescent films have a shorter service life than other reflective sheeting.

 

How to Apply and Clean Conspicuity Tape for Emergency Vehicles

Please make sure the substrate is free from soil, oil and other dirt. You can use a special surface preparation agent for that. In case of trapped air under the film, you can use a needle to prick the bubbles and release the air with a squeegee.

For cleaning conspicuity tape for emergency vehicles, please use lukewarm water and common detergent only. Avoid any abrasive or aggressive cleaning agents as well as brushes with hard bristles since they can damage the film surface. If you want to use a high-pressure cleaner, please adhere to the care guidelines.

Please find all relevant information about application and maintenance in the respective information sheet of each product.
