Product Description

Reflexite V99 School Bus Microprismatic Conspicuity Tape is for school buses in the United States and Canada which are required to have conspicuity tape outlining the emergency exits, windows, hatches and in many cases striping the entire sides or perimeters of the buses. The tape comes in a specially formulated school bus yellow color and is a tough weather and solvent-resistant product designed for rugged outdoor use on the sides, rear, and exit points of school buses. It is easy to apply to smooth surfaces or to surfaces where tape must be cut around rivets and other design features. The adhesive is designed to adhere to a variety of surfaces including fiberglass, aluminum, steel, and painted metal.

The reflective material used for Reflexite V99 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 deposit 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.

Reflexite V99 School Bus Microprismatic Conspicuity Tape is compliant with the FMVSS 131 & 217 specifications, has a 5-year warranty, and is excellent for retrofitting existing school bus fleets. The white lines in the pattern provide maximum daytime visibility and this tape will maintain reflectivity after impact.

Please note that V99 rolls are typically shipped on a plain neutral core or an ISC Racers Tape branded core.

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.

Designed patterns for my NissanPathfindr
Oralite (Reflexite) V99 School Bus Microprismatic Conspicuity Tape
I used this tape to give my car high-tech style patterns. I found it very easy to cut into the desired lengths. I was able to cut strips up to an eighth of an inch wide to make text with this tape. I found the triangle pattern on the tape useful for keeping my cuts straight. I wish people knew about the benefits of having conspicuity tape on their car. Many do not know that they can apply it in a fashionable way to make the tape appear aesthetic during day and night.

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.
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.
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
