Nikkalite® Engineering Grade RA1

Engineering Grade RA1


Nikkalite® Engineering Grade RA1

Nikkalite® 8100 series Engineering grade is an enclosed lens retroreflective sheeting manufactured by Nippon Carbide Industries (NCI) which renders retroreflectivity at night. The sheeting is designed for use on permanent traffic signs and is coated with a permanent adhesive protected by a removable liner.


When processed and applied in line with NCI instructions, Nikkalite® 8100 Engineering grade sheeting when exposed vertically under normal weathering conditions in the UK or Ireland can be expected to have a useful performance life as shown in the table below. Actual performance depends greatly on type and treatment of substrate and on weathering conditions.
