Microprismatic Technology Featured in ORALITE ® conspicuity products How it works:

LIGHT IN LIGHT OUT

14   www.ORAFOLAMERICAS.com    Engineered to Save Lives™

Light strikes each of the three surfaces of the microprism before returning to the source. The microprism provides more reflective surface area than a glass bead and will reflect up to 250% more light. The microprism’s economical use of surface area delivers a higher level of performance in all applications, which results in superior long distance visibility of the vehicle and greater awareness by the motoring public.


“

Research shows that conspicuity markings can reduce crashes in low light conditions involving HGVs by up to 41%*
