Retroreflective Sheeting

StyletechTM COMMERCIAL GRADE 5000 Series

STYLETECH Brand Commerical Grade retroreflective sheeting is a closed lens material that renders high retroreflectivity at night. It is designed for use mainly with sign plotters in a variety of commercial, promotional, and decorative striping applications. This sheeting is available in eight colors.

TYPES OF ADHESIVE: The STYLETECH 5000 Series sheeting is pre-coated with PS adhesive that will bond the sheeting to the substrate with the application of pressure only. The pressure can be applied with a hand roller, squeegee, or a roller-applicator. Permanent bonding will not take place until 48 hours after the application. DO NOT ALLOW THE ADHESIVE TO FREEZE DURING THE 48-HOUR CURING PERIOD.

COLORS: STYLETECH sheeting is available in the standard colors as listed on the Table.

DURABILITY: The most important properties of retroreflective sheeting are reflectivity, color, and durability. Of these, durability may be the most important, so special attention was directed towards the selections and use of raw material and production technology that would render maximum durability. Continuous efforts are being made to attain even greater durability for all STYLETECH products. From countless tests conducted, it has been determined that STYLETECH CG applied as recommended can be expected to meet the durability standards given below without any clear coating. Under certain weathering conditions, small hair cracks may appear in the sheeting, but such cracks do not significantly reduce the day or night performance of the signs.

NOTE: The data above are based in the tests conducted in the United States. It was found that durability is affected by the type of substrate, surface treatment of the substrate, exposure conditions, and type of maintenance.

COLOR MATCHING: When it is necessary to use more than one sheet of STYLETECH sheeting on one sign, care should be taken to use sheeting cut from the same roll. If, however, sheets from different rolls are used, care must be taken to ensure that the daytime and night time colors of the sheeting are matched. Color matching should be done in daylight hours away from colored walls or other objects that can affect the color of the sheeting. To match night color, examine the sheeting in a dark room or area with a light directed on the surface. The light source (flashlight, spotlight, etc.) should be held at eye level and observation should take place from behind the light, as far away from the sheeting as practical.

APPLICATION: STYLETECH is pre-coated with an adhesive that will bond the sheeting firmly and permanently to clean and smooth surfaces of tested and approved metal, coated metal, plastic, plywood, etc.

STORAGE AND SHELF LIFE: All STYLETECH must be stored in a cool, dry, and clean area. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight and storage in excessively humid areas. The shelf life of the sheeting is 12 months after delivery.

MAINTENANCE: STYLETECH sheeting surfaces covered with dust or small particles of sand should be cleaned with water containing a mild, neutral cleaning solution. To avoid scarring the surface use a soft, clean cloth or sponge when washing and drying. To remove tar and oily substrates, rub lightly with a soft cloth soaked with a mild solvent such as kerosene or turpentine.
