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 7 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.
