AURA 196 Fluorescent Prismatic

Features exceptionally durable fluorescent colors for extended outdoor use. AURA 196 Fluorescent Prismatic is a cellular retroreflective sheeting featuring microprismatic reflective optics. A perfect option for both traffic signs and temporary construction signing applications where greater sign visibility is required.

AURA 196 Fluorescent Prismatic sheeting enhances sign visibility 24 hours per day. The durable fluorescent colors improve the daytime visibility of traffic signs, especially during inclement weather or low daylight conditions at dusk or dawn. Further, our microprismatic reflective optics meet a number of industry retroreflectivity specifications. Key features include:

  • Availability of three different fluorescent colors.
  • An aggressive adhesive suitable for use on aluminum, painted steel, and certain plastic sign substrates.
  • Tiled microprismatic optical elements for a more uniform reflective appearance across multiple viewing angles.
  • Can be digitally printed with various printing systems.

AURA 150 Metalized High Intensity Prismatic

A microprismatic reflective film designed for use on delineators, work zone barricades, beacons, and similar traffic channelizing devices. It is available in a variety of pre-striped formats and incorporates an aggressive adhesive suitable for use on many plastic substrates and other difficult surfaces.

AURA 150 provides a unique product construction compared with competitive work zone reflective sheetings. Instead of the traditional two-layer reflective film construction, which often suffers from face film lifting or delamination, AURA® 150 has a single-layer product construction to maintain its structural integrity for longer periods of use. This provides for extended work zone barricade life.

AURA 150 provides exceptional long-distance reflectivity with typical reflectivity levels greater than 500. The product meets the requirements of ASTM D-4956, Type III; EN-12899, Class RA2, and many other high intensity reflective sheeting specifications.

AURA 150 Metalized High Intensity Prismatic has been approved for use in a number of different countries and States. Please contact us for a current list of approvals and homologations.

AURA 104 Engineer Grade (High UV)

An enclosed lens retroreflective film designed for permanent traffic signing applications requiring durability up to 7-years.  Conforms to the requirements of ASTM D-4956 Type 1 and EN-12899 Class 1.  

AURA 104 is a durable, enclosed lens sheeting exceeding industry specifications for Engineer Grade, including ASTM D4956, Type 1 and EN12899, Class RA1.

In the United States, according to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Engineer Grade sheeting can be used for all classifications of signs with the exception of white legend on guide signs, white legend on street name signs, and yellow or orange series warning signs.

AURA 104 Engineer Grade sheeting is an excellent and cost-effective option to comply with these minimum reflectivity requirements for "White on Red" and "Black on White" series signs.   After outdoor weathering in Florida, AURA® 104 has been shown to maintain reflectivity levels substantially above the minimum requirements for these sign classifications.
