Online PR News – 17-October-2012 – UK – Rennicks UK has utilised the latest technology to develop a new conspicuity material, offering high grade visibility for the long term.
Launched at The Blue Light Fleet Exhibition 2012, the new system comprises of reformulated Nikkalite® Flexible Crystal Grade Microsprismatic Sheeting, used in conjunction with AdvantEdge edge-sealing technology.
The Nikkalite® Flexible Crystal Grade Microprismatic sheeting is more flexible and now has an enhanced top layer pigment, offering long lasting performance against the elements, while AdvantEdge produces an industry leading impenetrable, highly accurate edge-seal which prevents water ingress and dirt damage to the material.
The end result is a tough, durable system, which provides outstanding visibility and is designed to cope with the longer service times many emergency services’ vehicles now face.
Iain Borthwick, Managing Director of Rennicks UK, which has its headquarters in Cheshire, said: “The material offers a market-leading solution, with a tough, bright pigment and unique conformability characteristics geared up to meet the needs of the emergency services.
“Budgetary restrictions are impacting on the length of time these vehicles stay in service, with ambulances often in operation for five to seven years and fire vehicles up to 15 years, so it is important that the livery remains bright and vibrant during these time frames.
“The AdvantEdge seal is key to the system’s longevity, as it ensures no water or dirt ingress into the material and the edges remain in good condition, helping to prevent peeling or fading.
“Representing the ultimate package for the conspicuity market, the end result is a tough, long lasting and highly durable material that is flexible enough for the contours of vehicle bodywork – and offers outstanding visibility in all conditions.”
