Product Description

These 10.75" x 10.75" orange and black placards conform to the UN system and to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Standard 49 CFR. These placards meet the requirements for material, appearance, size, color and character height as specified by §172.519, 521-560.  They display both the division number and compatibility group letter and are available in five different materials (reflective vinyl is available by special order).  All placards (except the self-adhesive ones) require a suitable placard holder when used on a vehicle (see item # 03171). DOT regulations require four placards per vehicle (front, back and both sides).

Material Features
PF-Cardstock Unlike standard card-stock, PF-Cardstock is pulp-free, it has no wood or paper content. This pliable polyolefin-based material is ideal for indoor use and short-term outdoor exposure. It will not rip or break down in moisture. The scuff-resistant surface is easy to write on.
Adhesive Vinyl This flexible vinyl material has a permanent adhesive back with a peel-off liner. It is moisture- and tear- resistant. These signs work for short term outdoor applications, and in moderate temperatures, -40 to 176°F.
Plastic This 0.055” thick polyethylene plastic is made of 50% recycled content and is easily recyclable. It provides good impact resistance with a non-glare, matte finish. It is slightly flexible, does not tear, is corrosion and water resistant and withstands surface dirt and grease. Service temperature range is -90 to 168°F.
Removable Vinyl This 4-mil flexible vinyl with clear over-laminate provides a matte surface that is easy to write on with pencil, pen or marker. It has a high-grade, removable, pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive with a flat release liner. Ideal for general duty, indoor and temporary applications.
Magnetic Vinyl This material has magnetic ferrite particles imbedded in a 32-mil synthetic rubber base with a UV protective coating. It resists cracking and chipping and is flexible enough for mounting to curved surfaces. Magnetic placards are ideal for vehicles that do not have permanently mounted placard holders and where you need to change the placarding frequently based on the type of material being transported. Service temperature range is 0 to 160°F.
