Type 6 – Retro Reflective Sheeting with No Adhesive for Temporary Roll Up Signs, Warning Signs, Traffic Cone Collars, and Post Bands
Type 6 Retro Reflective Sheeting – A flexible elastomeric high-intensity prismatic retro-reflective sheeting without adhesive. This sheeting is typically a PVC vinyl based micro-prismatic reflective material. It is made so it can be rolled up and stored without damaging the retro reflective components within the film. Type 6 reflective sheeting is commonly lettered and used when roadwork is underway or an emergency situation necessitates temporary signs along the roadway. Common colors are lime or orange. Also available in white. Uses are temporary roll-up warning signs, white traffic cone collars, and post bands.
