Type 10 – Highway Signage, Construction Zone devices, and Traffic Delineators (Discontinued – replaced by Type 8 & 11 sheeting for signs and Type 5 sheeting for zone devices and delineators)
Type 10 Retro Reflective Sheeting – An ultra high intensity reflective material having the highest retro-reflective characteristics at medium road distances as determined by the table below at 0.1° and 0.2° observation angles. This sheeting is commonly an unmetallized prismatic air backed reflective material. Applications for this material were permanent highway signing, construction zone devices, and delineators.
