The First in the Industry

Microprismatic Retroreflective Technology In 1966, industry pioneer Bill Rowland used a simple manila file folder to conceptualize the original microprismatic retroreflective cube corner prism technology. This advancement is now part of the ORAFOL® family of ORALITE® films.


ORALITE® 9900 Type XI Brilliant Grade Premium

For long-term outdoor applications

From the inventors of microprismatic retroreflective materials comes the all new Brilliant Grade regulatory sign sheeting. When your signage applications demand the highest quality retroreflective film, ORALITE® 9900 series is up for the task. Constructed from our unique truncated prism design, 9900 series exceeds all ASTM D4956 performance characteristics for Type XI materials.

Printing on ORAFOL sheeting with the Anapurna H2050i LED is the perfect combination! ” TONY RANGEL Production Manager, Eastern Metal Signs & Safety

“The Annapurna is the definition of speed and flexibility. The hybrid flatbed design allows you to print from edge to edge making it hugely efficient while other printers struggle with this issue. The vacuum belt system ensures that prints are dimensionally identical every time. Making overlays and seams line up properly. It also utilizes an LED drying system that instantly and odorlessly dries prints so there’s no terrible smell or waiting around to laminate and apply signs. After working with this machine for the past two years you couldn’t pry it from my hands. This is the best printer for custom and standard traffic signage period. It’s an industrial piece of machinery that can accomplish any size job big or small. In addition, partnering with ORAFOL has been a great experience. They put in the effort when it comes to listening to their customers and genuinely wanted to know my experiences when using their products. It’s clear that they make adjustments based on that feedback. They went even further by pairing their products up with the Annapurna and installing a custom ink system allowing us to produce certified highway signs and other products. This truly is the perfect combination for printing traffic signs.”
