Nikkalite® Crystal Grade 92800 series is a high performance microprismatic retroreflective sheeting manufactured by Nippon Carbide Industries (NCI), designed for use on road traffic signs. The sheeting construction is based on advanced prism designs which provide the driver with excellent viewing angularity of the traffic sign during the hours of darkness through a wide range of viewing angles. The material is coated with a permanent high tack adhesive protected by a plastic liner.

Actual performance depends greatly on type and treatment of substrate and on weathering conditions.
