Chapter 2 Minimum Retroreflectivity Levels for Overhead
In 1989, Stein et al., reported nighttime performance of overhead guide signs constructed from button copy and retroreflective sheeting on opaque and retroreflective backgrounds. (910) The project was a planned followup to Gordon's literature review and included: Investigation of thencurrent signing practices throughout the United States.
EP2258540A1 Retroreflective sheeting Google Patents
Cube corner retroreflective sheeting is commonly produced by first manufacturing a master mold that has a structured surface, such structured surface corresponding either to the desired cube corner element geometry in the finished sheeting or to a negative (inverted) copy thereof, depending upon whether the finished sheeting is to have cube corner pyramids or cube corner cavities (or both).

2014723&ensp·&enspThe retroreflective properties of all sign sheeting materials degrade over time making signs progressively less visible at night. As signs degrade and become less retroreflective, their effectiveness in communiing regulatory, warning, and guidance messages to road users at nighttime diminishes to the point that they cannot be seen or read in time for the driver to react properly.
