Brilliant® Reflective Strips
outshine our competition

  • Typical Initial Retroreflectivity: >350 cd/lux-m2
  • Minimum Initial Retroreflectivity: >200 cd/lux-m2
  • Post-Laundering Retroreflectivity: >100 cd/lux-m2 minimum after 25 homelaundering cycles
  • The coefficient of retroreflection (RA, in cd/lux-m2) of Brilliant™ Colorized Reflective Material is measured based on test procedures ASTM E809-02 and E810-03 for measurement of retroreflective intensity.
  • The RA values generated were measured at +5.0 entrance and 0.2 observation angles (head-on brightness).
  • Retroreflective performance data was generated based on testing new product that has not been laminated.
  • 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material silver products have an initial average RA of 500 cd/lux/m2 and a minimum RA of 330 cd/lux/m2.
  • Adhesive Thickness – 3.5 mils (0.09 mm)
  • Clear Premask Thickness – 2.0 mils (0.05 mm)
  • Adhesive Color – Grey
  • Service Temperature Range -40 °F to 150 °F
  • Elastic Recovery: > 95% after 100% elongation
  • Lamination temperature range: 250-275 °F
  • Laundering – Brilliant® Color Reflective can be laundered in all wash cycles (cold, warm, or hot temperatures)
