Antalis introduces Oralite® for retroreflective signage

January 11, 2019

Antalis, Europe’s leading distributor of paper, packaging and visual communications solutions, has introduced a full range of economy grade retroreflective films to its visual communication range. Oralite 5200, weather-proof, self-adhesive is specially developed for the manufacture of information signs, such as road traffic signage.

The Oralite® 5200 Economy Grade is a high-quality retroreflective film, with an excellent corrosion and solvent resistance, ideal for use in outdoor applications. The films, which are available in white, yellow, orange, red, green, and blue, provide an extremely smooth and scratch-resistant finish. As well as being ideal for road and traffic signs, the film is also particularly effective for vehicle wrapping on emergency service vehicles, which may need to be more visible at night.

The retroreflective system of the Oralite® 5200 Economy Grade consists of catadioptric glass beads which are embedded in a transparent layer of plastic material, allowing for light to be reflected and refracted, whilst reducing aberration. The smooth surface shows a high scratch resistance and impact strength and a very good printability. Oralite® 5200 can be screen printed with Oralite® 5018 screen printing ink or inkjet printed with most solvent based inks, UV or latex inks. Oralite® 5200 Economy Grade has an adhesive with an outstanding adhesion on metallic surfaces, such as aluminium and zinc coated steel plate.

Mike Collins, Product Manager for Visual Communications at Antalis UK, comments: “We are delighted to introduce the new economy grade Oralite® retroreflective solution from graphical innovations company Orafol, to share yet another newly-developed product innovation with our customers, allowing them to tap into new revenue streams and markets. Oralite® is an advanced solution and the films provide great options for many advertising companies and also local authorities, who are looking for retroreflective signage and displays, with the added benefit of suitability to outdoor environments."
