Reflective tape for transport

In the market coexist different products that help to avoid accidents, among them we find helmets, safety vest, gloves, special suits, among others. But there is something very simple that for several decades has helped to avoid various types of accidents, especially those of transit. It is an invention that shows simple, corresponds to a strip of adhesive paper; however it is not any paper: It is a Reflective Tape.

These reflective tapes are used so that the objects are visible before the lights of the automobiles or by any other source of light, reason why its use is quite ample. In this case, we will give you some ideas of places where you could use them:

The operation of these takes advantage of a property of light that is called reflection. Light rays strike the tape and then reflect perpendicularly. Many of them occupy a technology based on micro prisms that offer greater performance, as well as others made based on microspheres. Both comply with international standards and standards related to High Visibility.

Its use has significantly helped to reduce traffic accidents, to the point that the authorities have promoted the use of these by means of articles that require their use (in traffic laws). In Chile, trucks over 7 tons must use red and white reflective ribbons, as specified in Law 18,290 of the Ministry of Transportation. But they are not the only ones; the school vans also must do it according to Exempt Resolution 569 of the March 14, 2005 of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications.

3M has prepared a contest under the concept of "The World Moves with 3M" where you can know the full range of Car Care products in addition to hundreds of other products created by 3M; you can also win incredible prizes.
