Product Description

FindTape DOT-GB Glass Bead Reflective Conspicuity Tape is an economical choice for DOT-compliant glass bead reflective conspicuity tape in an alternating red and white honeycomb pattern and 7-years of durability. The textured, also known as dimpled or bumpy, surface features light reflections from all directions that it faces resulting in constant higher visibility and improved roadway safety for motor vehicles and other machines. Even though the glass bead limits the distance of the reflection, the wider angles provide more visibility at shorter distances. Being UV stable and impact proof ensures longevity without losing any of its characteristics over time.

Please note that this tape is supplied on a clear film release liner wound around a 3-inch diameter core.

FindTape DOT-GB meets the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) regulations requiring any trailer truck over 10,000 lbs and over 80-inches wide which are required to have a 2-inch wide alternating red and white pattern marked with DOT-C2 text. The permanent self-adhesive base is suited to work on many different surfaces such as aluminum, fiberglass, steel, and more and is resistant to chemicals such as toluene, number 2 diesel fuel, TSP detergent, and xylene. The properties of this tape allow it to be used for numerous applications including transportation vehicles such as vans, buses, trailers, forklifts, tractors, and more.

Alert Roll Sizes/Widths

Nominal Tape Widths vs Actual Widths

Nominal vs. Actual Widths Zoom In

Tape rolls are cut to standard tape industry metric widths of approx. 24mm per 1-inch of nominal width ordered. As a result ACTUAL tape widths are normally 5% narrower than the NOMINAL width shown in inches. Examples:

  • 1" Nominal width = 15/16" (24mm) Actual width
  • 2" Nominal width = 1-7/8" (48mm) Actual width
  • 3" Nominal width = 2-13/16" (72mm) Actual width

Note that tape rolls are NOT guaranteed to be splice-free.

Made in the USA
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
