Microprismatic Technology

Featured in ORALITE ® conspicuity products

LIGHT IN

LIGHT OUT

How it works: 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.
