Plates peel­ing for many

Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE -

If you’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing prob­lem with your li­cence plate peel­ing, you’re not alone. Ser­vice Nova Sco­tia says they’ve had ap­prox­i­mately 1,500 plates re­turned to them al­ready within the range ENG001 to ETA499 for stan­dard plates. “The cause of the paint peel­ing has not yet been iden­ti­fied by the com­pany that sup­plies the re­flec­tive sheet­ing,” Tracy Barron, a spokesper­son for Ser­vice Nova Sco­tia stated. “Plate sam­ples have been gath­ered and sent to a re­flec­tive sheet­ing man­u­fac­turer for anal­y­sis.” Li­cence plates have a five-year war­ranty, but the peel­ing is ex­tremely un­usual and Ser­vice Nova Sco­tia will re­place any plates with the de­fect at no cost if it is within the iden­ti­fied range. “Based on the num­ber of plates that have been re­turned from this batch since 2010 – more sig­nif­i­cantly more re­cently – we be­gan to look into it,” Barron said. “There are no safety con­cerns with the plates and law en­force­ment have not ex­pressed any con­cern about read­ing the plates.” The plates are man­u­fac­tured by Wal­dale Man­u­fac­tur­ing Lim­ited while the sheet­ing is pro­vided to Wal­dale by 3M.
