Product Description ORALITE®
5600 Fleet Engieer Grade is a tough weather and solvent resistance product which boasts high flexibility
combined with excellent corrosion resistance. The material is plotter cuttable and is especially developed for high-quality
commercial and fleet livery to produce lettering, markings and decorations. The material can be applied to moderately curved
surfaces with rivets or corrugated substrates, due to its special cast PVC construction. ORALITE®
5600 is composed of
catadioptric glass beads which are embedded in a transparent layer of plastic material (design A, formerly Type I).
5600 meets the performance requirements of ECE 104 class D and is available as 5600D product with
watermark. Values of retroreflection shown in Table 1 are complied with when measured in accordance with the
corresponding specifications using CIE standard illuminant A, and the provisions of CIE No.54.2.
5600 is available in 15 different colours (see table 1 for full list of available colours). ORALITE®
a black colour at daylight. When being illuminated in darkness, it appears silver to silver-grey.
Adhesive The adhesive consists of a solvent polyacrylate, permanent pressure sensitive adhesive. The release paper (145 g/m2
) has a
PE coating applied to silicone-coated paper on either side. As the product and batch number are applied to the silicone-
coated paper, all production parameters and raw materials can be completely traced.
5600 was especially developed for high-quality commercial and fleet livery. Surfaces to which the material will be
applied must be thoroughly cleaned from dust, grease or any contamination which could affect the adhesion of the material.
Freshly lacquered or painted surfaces should be completely cured. The compatibility of selected lacquers and paints should
be tested by the user, prior to application of the material. The self adhesive reflective material can only be used for dry
application. For other applications the user is fully responsible for evaluating the suitability of the product, and for any risks
associated with that use.
5600 can be screen printed with ORALITE® 5018 screen printing ink or inkjet printed with solvent based inks, UV-
or Latex inks. Please refer to the chosen ink manufacturer’s instructions to determine if an application laminate is required, If
required, it is recommended that the material is laminated with ORAGUARD®
290F or ORAGUARD®
293F in order to provide
increased UV protection.
While the use of heat will help to partially remove the product, a solvent based adhesive remover maybe required to
completely remove any residual adhesive.
