Antalis has introduced a full range of economy grade retroreflective films to its visual communication range. Oralite 5200 weather-proof, self-adhesive is specially developed for the manufacture of information signs.
The Oralite 5200 Economy Grade is a high quality retroreflective film with an excellent corrosion and solvent resistance, developed for outdoor applications. Available in white, yellow, orange, red, green and blue, the films are said to provide an extremely smooth and scratch-resistant finish. Suitable for road and traffic signs, the film is particularly effective for vehicle wrapping on emergency service vehicles, which may need to be more visible at night.
The retroreflective system of the Oralite 5200 Economy Grade consists of catadioptric glass beads which are embedded in a transparent layer of plastic material, allowing for light to be reflected and refracted while reducing aberration. The smooth surface shows a high scratch resistance and impact strength and a very good printability. Oralite 5200 can be screen printed with Oralite 5018 screen printing ink or inkjet printed with most solvent based inks, UV or latex inks. Oralite 5200 Economy Grade has an adhesive with an outstanding adhesion on metallic surfaces including aluminium and zinc coated steel plate.
Mike Collins, product manager for visual communications at Antalis UK, comments: “We are delighted to introduce the new economy grade Oralite retroreflective solution from Orafol to share yet another newly-developed product innovation with our customers, allowing them to tap into new revenue streams and markets.
Oralite is an advanced solution and the films provide great options for many advertising companies and local authorities who are looking for retroreflective signage and displays, with the added benefit of suitability for outdoor environments.
