reflective tape

Anyone know where I can get that prismatic reflective tape that guys use on
their thermal gliders? Either tape or stickers will work. Tried both Tower
and Hobby Lobby without success. Would think Hobby Lobby would have it!
TIA

Re: reflective tape

It's actually called refractive tape. Out here on the left coast, you can
get it at Tap Plastics and some of the chain auto parts stores (Kragen
i.e.).

Re: reflective tape

I don't have the link at my fingertips, but the best deal I found on the
stuff was by doing a search for marching band supplies. Good prices on
straight rolls and rolls of round cutouts. If you just need a little,
Northeast sailplane carries the stuff called Skysheen. A bit pricey, but
works so well that peole ask me what kind of lights I have on my plane. If
you need lots and lots of the stuff, you can try www.signwarehouse.com for
24" wide rolls. Look for holographic sign vinyl.


Hope this helps.

Go to any local sign shop - the same place you look for CoroPlast - and ask them for some holographic vinyl. It is available in many patterns, in both silver and gold.

Comes in BIG rolls, but they will probably sell you a 6'x1' sheet for a dollar or two.

Hint: Wait 'til they're closed, and rummage in the waste bin. You often can find large pieces they throw away. This is a good way to get the stuff, and it's the same stuff MonoKote trim sheets are made of.

Re: reflective tape

Great suggestions all!
Thanks a bunch. I did find some at Auto Zone after trying another LHS and
the bike shop they suggested.
Will check the other sources everyone mentioned. I really dont need a lot
but extra wouldnt hurt!
Thanks again!

Re: reflective tape

One other place to try would be one of the larger salt water fishing tackle
stores. They sell several types and rolls of varying widths and patterns.
