In order to ensure road safety, many countries require reflective conspicuity tape on all semi-trucks and big rigs. Truck reflective tape can reflect the light back to the headlight, enhance the visibility of the trailer, remind drivers to keep away from the truck. Some car owners also make use of this reflective tape on the frame side of their car, to achieve the safety purpose.
But the retro-reflective tape will lose its strong reflection under the weather corrosion for long time. Hence, the truck drivers need to remove the old reflective tape to replace a new one.

After blowing a certain corner, lift up the patch with a rubber scraper, pull it gently, and then use hot air to align the sticker and the The connection of the body, while blowing and pulling, can be pulled down slowly and successfully;
