GP020 vs. GP010 reflective tape

We don’t have any GP020 reflective tape yet (everyone is out of stock). However, we have a metric standard boatload of GP010 left over from last year (don’t ask).

Has anyone made a comparison of the optical properties of last year’s reflective tape to this year’s? I’d hate to get all our imaging parameters worked out against the GP010, only to find that the GP020 is completely different…

How did you run out? They gave plenty to make all 4 targets in the KOP.

EDIT: Sorry, double post.

Well according to a quick Google search, there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference between the two types.

GP 010

I did actually put the two side by side and shine a flashlight on them but I couldn’t see any difference. I’m not 100% certain about this, but I doubt it would make much of a difference for vision processing.


Thanks! (And thanks for actually answering the question!!)

The tapes look different when not using a ring light. One is coated for longer wear, and the other is uncoated and would presumably wear out faster.

When lit with a ring light they behave very similarly, and it would be a fine choice for prototyping.
