An additional four reflective patches are sewn onto the suit at the ankles and forearms. This improves the visibility of the suit both in and out of the water. This retro tape conforms to SOLAS requirements.
This is an option for a Nova drysuit. Should only be ordered if a Nova (membrane) type drysuit is also ordered.
Reflexite invented microprismatic technology more than 30 years ago and is the leader of microprismatic film manufacturing providing products with the best possible visibility in day- and nighttime, poor light, adverse weather conditions and underwater.
Reflexite is the only manufacturer to offer the benefits of this superior technology consistently backed by years of experience, technical innovation .
Prism technology works by refracting light from its inner surfaces Light strikes each of the three surfaces of the Reflexite® microprism in turn, before returning to its source. The retro-reflective efficiency is enhanced by the precise arrangement of the microprisms, as seen in a microscopic view. The microprisms economical use of surface area delivers the highest standard of reflection.
It is specifically designed for use on inflatable devices such as life rafts, life jackets, immersion/wet suits, dry suits, etc.
It is composed of microprisms retroreflective elements integrally bonded to a flexible, smooth surface, tough and weather resistant, UV stabilized polymeric film. the prism surfcae are coated to provide a mirror surface to the prism facets. The resulting material is not more than 0,410 mm thick and comes with an aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive.
