V-MARK™ Reflective Material – Vehicle Conspicuity Markings 6”x6 # HI-INT-180012 conforms to the photometry requirements of GRADE DOT-C2 showed in the following table when tested according to the retro reflective sheeting photometry procedure stated in FMVSS 108 Appendix G.
While use V-MARK™ Reflective Material – Vehicle Conspicuity Markings enhances visibility, no reflective material can guarantee absolute visibility, particularly in adverse weather conditions. Performance will vary depending upon actual use, exposure conditions and maintenance. Users should test reflective material to satisfy conformance to their own requirements.
Daytime Color (x,y,Y)
The chromaticity coordinates and total luminance factor of the Vehicle Conspicuity Markings conform to Table A Daytime Color Specifications Limit (see Note 1).
Color Test – Ordinary Colored Sheeting Conformance to standard chromaticity (x, y) and luminance factor (Y %) requirements shall be determined by instrumental method in accordance with ASTM E 1164 on sheeting applied to smooth aluminum test panels.
The values shall be determined on a spectrophotometer.
Computations shall be done for CIE Illuminant D65 and the 2° standard observer (see Note 2)
Daytime Luminance Limit
Note 1 : The four pairs of chromaticity coordinates determine the acceptable color in terms of the CIE 1931 Standard Colormetric System.
Note 2 : The instrumentally determined color values of retroreflective sheeting can vary significantly depending on the make and model of colorimetric spectrophotometer as well as the color and retro reflective optics of the sheeting.
Routine washing is recommended for maximum performance. The following cleaning methods are recommended.
• Wash with sponge, cloth or soft brush using water and detergent.
• Automatic truck/car wash or standard high-pressure hand spray:
Maximum pressure-1200 PSI/ 80 bar.
Maximum water/wash solution temperature- 140°F/ 60°C.
Minimum of 12 inches/ 30cm distance of cleaning jet(s) from markings.
Cleaning wand or jets to be at no greater angle than 45 degrees from perpendicular to the marking surface.
• When using metal brighteners, follow manufacturer’s recommendations for dilution.
Thoroughly rinse from markings after soaking vehicle.
• Cool, dry area out of direct sunlight.
• Temperature 65-75°F (18-24°C) humidity 30-50%.
• Store rolls horizontally, in carton or in original packaging.
• Apply V-MARK™ Reflective Material – Vehicle Conspicuity Markings 6”x6 # HI-INT-180012 within two years of receipt of material.
General Performance Considerations
V-MARK™ Reflective Material – Vehicle Conspicuity Markings 6”x6 # HI-INT-180012 will provide maximum durability when:
• Recommended procedures are followed.
• Marking is applied to vertical surfaces.
Actual durability will be based on actual customer use, field testing, exterior exposed testing and artificial weathering testing.
Durability can be reduced if recommended techniques are not followed:
• Failure to cut markings around rivets, seams and body are panels.
