Product Description

Oralite R99 Rail Microprismatic Retroreflective Conspicuity Tape is a tough weather-and solvent-resistant product designed for rugged outdoor use on the sides and rear of rail freight cars, locomotives and all types of vehicles and equipment. Oralite is the Oracal Group's new brand name for Reflexite. It is easy to apply to smooth flat surfaces or to curved surfaces where tape must be cut around rivets and other design features. R99 Rail Conspicuity Material comes with the visible FRA-224 certification mark. It adds a greater degree of visibility to rail cars, especially as they travel through grade crossings at night and in low-light conditions. The material is composed of cube corner (microprism) retroreflective elements integrally bonded to a thin, flexible, smooth-surfaced, tough and weather-resistant UV-stabilized polyester film. The prism surfaces are coated with a vacuum deposition of aluminum to provide a mirror surface to the prism facets. The resulting tape is not more than .008 inches thick and comes with an aggressive high-tack pressure sensitive adhesive. The adhesive is especially formulated to adhere to a variety of surfaces including fiberglass, aluminum, steel and painted metal. Maintains reflectivity after impact. 10 year product durability.

Oralite R99 Rail Microprismatic Retroreflective Conspicuity Tape
hot melt rubber (synthetic)
Offers the widest range of application flexibility available. Exhibits excellent processing performance whether manually or automatically applied. Has superior tensile strength, adhesion properties and holding force which ensures consistent, reliable seals. Hot melt adhesive will bond faster to a surface which is referred to as quick-grab or quick-stick. It typically has higher tack (will feel stickier to the touch), but is also softer. It has lower heat resistance, shear resistance, and sometimes UV resistance than an acrylic adhesive. NOTE: it is called hot melt because the adhesive is applied hot by the manufacturer and then hardens as it cools (you do not need to apply heat to the tape yourself).
natural rubber
Properties are similar to that of hot melt rubber, but natural rubber often holds where other adhesives won't (recycled fibers, dust, cold, heat and heavy loads). It provides good overall adhesion and moisture resistance.
acrylic
Offer excellent performance, especially for applications in temperatures less than 40°F and greater then 120°F. It provides excellent clarity, has high shear strength, is usually more permanent/durable even when exposed to moisture, and it ages well over extended periods in fluorescent and sunlight. Since it remains clear for the life of the application and does not yellow over time it is ideal for applications such as sealing white cartons. While it has good initial adhesion it does take 24-48 hours to cure and to achieve its maximum bond strength (has gradual adhesion buildup). Another difference between hot melt rubber and acrylic adhesive is if you fold tape over making the two adhesive sides touch the acrylic adhesive will remain attached to the carrier (e.g. paper, film) while a hot melt adhesive will stick to itself and pull off of the carrier. It is the best choice for clarity, UV resistance and aging characteristics.
silicone
Is great for extreme temperature applications since silicone adhesive can work in continuous operating temperatures from -100°F to 500°F. They also exhibit good chemical resistance, retain electrical properties, and remove cleanly with little or no residue.
zinc oxide
Zinc oxide based adhesive formula is a skin-friendly adhesive which is commonly used on sports medicine tapes.
Thickness, AKA caliper or gauge, refers to the distance from one surface of a tape backing, or adhesive, to the other.
1 mil = 1/1000 of an inch
Examples: 1/16 inch = 62.5 mils; 1/32 inch = 31.25 mils
