Conspicuity Reflective Truck Tape – 838 Series

8 mil polyester based conformable tape with 7-year durability

Meets NHTSA 49CFR Part 571 Conspicuity regulations for DOT

Available Colors:


Our 838 reflective truck tape is composed of cube corner (microprism) retroreflective elements integrally bonded to a flexible, smooth-surfaced, tough and weather-resistant UV-stabilized polymeric film. The prism surfaces are coated with a vacuum deposition of aluminum to provide a mirror surface to the prism facets. The resulting tape is not more than 0.008″ thick and comes with an aggressive high-tack pressure-sensitive adhesive.

Features & Benefits

• Durability >>> Seven-year warranty <<< Withstands brushing, dirt, grime, and high pressure washing. Polyester based film resists cracking and lifting. Material will retain its reflectivity even after impact against a loading dock or abrasion by chains.
• Unique, single-ply construction ensures impact & abrasion resistance and easy application.
• 0.008″ thickness resists dirt accumulation typical of competitor’s thicker (0.025″), open-cell construction. Material is extremely thin so there are no raised edges that can catch and tear.
• Super-high brightness & wide angularity: Typically 1000 candlepower with tremendous long sight distance performance; reflects at all applicable angles on the roadway.
