Nikkalite® Flexible Engineering Grade (FEG) is a flexible glass-beaded retroreflective sheeting that renders retroreflectivity during darkness. It is designed for use on emergency vehicles and fleet markings where application to riveted and corrugated surfaces may be required.
The material is highly resistant to extremes of hot, cold, dry and humid weathering conditions and vehicles liveried with FEG sheeting are attractive in appearance and highly visible during both day and night-time conditions.
Nikkalite® FEG is available in 24” and 48” x 50yds rolls in the following colours;
