The Oralite films create retroreflective signage and displays, with suitability for outdoor environments

Retroreflectivity describes the efficiency of a material to redirect light back to its source, which when applied to signs, makes seeing the message easier. The Department for Transport requires all reflective signs to be reflectorised.

Antalis’s Oralite 5200 is a weather-proof, self-adhesive, specially developed for the manufacture of information signs, such as road traffic signs. The product is a high-quality retroreflective film with corrosion and solvent resistance, making it ideal for use in outdoor applications.

The films are available in white, yellow, orange, red, green, and blue and provide a smooth and scratch-resistant finish. The range of colours means that as well as being used for road and traffic signs, the films can be used for vehicle wrapping of emergency service vehicles, for extra visibility at night.

We are delighted to introduce the new economy grade Oralite retroreflective solution from graphical innovations company Orafol, to share yet another newly-developed product innovation with our customers, allowing them to tap into new revenue streams and markets

Oralite 5200 Economy Grade is made of catadioptric glass beads which are embedded in a transparent layer of plastic material, allowing for light to be reflected and retracted. The films can be screen printed with Oralite 5018 screen printing ink or inkjet printed with most solvent-based inks, UV, or latex inks.

Mike Collins, product manager for visual communications at Antalis, says: “We are delighted to introduce the new economy grade Oralite retroreflective solution from graphical innovations company Orafol, to share yet another newly-developed product innovation with our customers, allowing them to tap into new revenue streams and markets.”
