Nikkalite® Ultralite Extra (ULX) 600 series is a high intensity prismatic (HIP) 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.
When Nikkalite® ULX sheeting is processed and applied in line with NCI instructions, and exposed vertically under normal weathering conditions in the UK or Ireland, it 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.
