Review of the Optronics Red and White Conspicuity Reflective Tape

Today we'll be taking a look at the Optronics 7" long white by 11" long red Conspicuity Reflective Tape in a quantity of four in 18" long strips, Part #RE418T. This also comes as a quantity of eight, Part #RE18T. The Optronics Conspicuity Reflective Tape comes in 18" long strips by 2" wide. This reflective kit is rated at over 600 candle power per square foot. It is also hermetically sealed and unbreakable. It does mount on flat, as well as, curved surfaces and it is DOT Certified, as well as, being rated for seven years of use. It also complies with the J1967 for vehicle conspicuity material. Now let's go ahead and go over here to our enclosed trailer and we'll show you how to put them on.

As you notice, this trailer does not already have the conspicuity tape installed on it, as it doesn't meet the federal requirements where it's needed. We're adding them to give us an extra safety feature and adding more visibility to others around us. We're going to go ahead and line it up right here along the bottom of the trailer. We'll first go ahead and clean the back area with just a little bit of glass cleaner and a paper towel. Now as you can see, the back has a split in it that allows you to easily pull it off. It also has a checkered style pattern that gives high visibility, as well as, reflectivity to it.

It lets you know right here that it is DOT compliant by having a DOT-C2 stamped right onto the strip. I will go ahead and line up where we want to put it, simply hold it in place and we'll peel back the small portion right here. Go ahead and take the backing and fold it over and press firmly in on the strip to make sure it adheres fully to the side of our trailer. Now, since four strips come with the package, we'll go ahead and apply the other three the same way we did this one. Now as you can see we've added significant reflectivity to our trailer by adding the Optronics Conspicuity Reflective Tape strips, Part #RE418T. .
