    Hi all - Im a sign veteran but new to the forums.

    Has anyone noticed that 3m premium reflective vinyls aren't what they were 10 years ago? When branded as 280 / 280i it once had an overlaminate that you would see if removing. The newer 280 / 680 reflectives are easily ripped and seem to be more like EG vinyl.

    I want to be providing the best materials on local Police and
    Fire Vehicles possible and it seems 3m quality has declined.

    Please let me know of your experiences and suggestions.

    -B

    I used Nikkalite some years ago. Worked well and no call backs.

    I use all 3M & Gerber materials for reflective, never any issues from customers or the material.
    For Chevron striping, I really like Reflexite.
