Because of this, it ensures long durability, high brightness and anti-delamination. All products use a encapsulated lens optical design that generates high reflectivity, even over a wide range of entrance angles. Wet or dry, it doesn’t matter. As a result, the light output will always be the same. The tape itself has a silver color, and reflects a bright white light.
