Conspicuity Tape

Conspicuity tape, also known as reflex tape, retro-reflective vehicle marking tape, or simply DOT tape, is available at wholesale through Jammy in the widest selection of types and varieties that any North American supplier offers from one source.  All Jammy conspicuity products exceed FMVSS 108 / ASTM D4956 Standards for Reflective Markings, are marked DOT-C2 (as applicable), and are designed to provide 7 – 10 years of field performance.  There is a grade of conspicuity tape for all budgets and applications; in alternating 11″x7″ or 6″x6″ pattern as well as solid white, sold red and solid “school bus” yellow colors.  Jammy conspicuity tape can even be customized with your company logo.  As one of the largest importing manufacturers of conspicuity tape in North America, Jammy is also among the most competitively priced suppliers of vehicle marking products.

Understanding the Grades of Conspicuity Tape

FFT Grade – High Intensity Tape: The most time tested technology and most economical option, a glass bead reflective product with a silver/red daytime color, and a 7 year field performance rating. FFT Grade tape has a reflectivity rating of 300 candela. Don’t confuse this product with other low end import tape. Although it may look similar, the Jammy FFT Grade is constructed with highly UV resistant Acrylic (PMMA) face film and oil based adhesives which are far superior to the PET (polyester), PC and Water Based products often sold at discount and prone to early failure. FFT Grade is our most popular seller.

TFT Grade – Metalized Micro-Prismatic Tape: A thin film, single layer product for those requiring the brightest available tape. Single layer products cannot delaminate. This grade is built for the toughest and most demanding applications. It has the most aggressive adhesive and is the most resistant to impact while remaining very flexible. The TFT Grade tape has a silver/red daytime color and a 10 year field performance rating. TFT Grade tape has a reflectivity rating of 940 candela. Compare this product to Reflexite V92.

PGT Grade – Non-Metalized Prismatic Tape: An encapsulated prism product with an air layer to offer a brighter white and brighter red daytime appearance than other grades. The thick acrylic face film of the PGT Grade tape adds to the durability and UV resistance making for a 10 year field performance rating. Not as damage resistant or flexible as the TFT Grade, but offers the appearance of popular competitive products through specialized reflective bands. PGT grade tape has a reflectivity rating of 600 candela. Compare this product to 3M 983.

What Grade of Tape Do I Need?

If you are shopping for a great deal on a high quality reflective marking product, we recommend our FFT Grade Tape. It is reliable, inexpensive and flexible – great for trailers of any size with any smooth finished metal or plastic. A prefect solution when economy is the goal.

If you need a high performance tape and are willing to spend a little more on it, we recommend our TFT Grade Tape. It has the most aggressive adhesive that works even with rougher surfaces. This grade is the most flexible to wrap around corners and posts. The encapsulation layer also makes for easy cutting around rivets with no damage to the cells. TFT Grade is also the brightest tape for the highest visibility of your product. Great for heavy duty trailers and agricultural equipment.

For those that demand a BRIGHT WHITE and dramatic RED daytime appearance, we recommend our PGT Grade Tape. This grade is perfect for marking white sheet metal on travel trailers, cargo trailers and over the road trucks & trailers with a tape that blends better with the white panels so popular on may pieces of equipment. This grade also sports horizontal reflective bands popular on competing products.
