Nikkalite® Ultralite is an encapsulated lens retroreflective sheeting manufactured by Nippon Carbide Industries (NCI), with a highly transparent flat and smooth top surface. Ultralite has been specially designed to ensure long durability and high performance for traffic signs mounted vertically.
800 series 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® 800 Ultralite 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.
