Thus the retro-reflective film is divided into four grades to fit the different applications at suitable prices. Commercial grade reflective sheeting Commercial grade reflective sheeting is a kind of economical retro-reflective film, mainly used fo

Hydro Dipping How Does It Works?

 Hydro Dipping How Does It Works? Water transfer printing is a revolutionary surface treatment technology, can print various designs on the complicated curved product surface, thus more popular than the traditional printing technology. How does water transfer printing works? The principle is to print the texture design on the specially processed polymer film, then place it on the transfer machine, transfer the texture design on the product under the water pressure. After washing and dry out, supply the gloss painting, the printed product will show excellent visional effect. Advantage 1.  Can print design on the complicated shape  Hydro dipping can print the design on the complex concave and convex appearances, aim to solve the printing problem for complicated shape products, which is a problem that can't be solved by traditional printing technology.  No matter pad printing, screen printing, surface coating, or other processes, they can't print the design on the curved products.

What are the functions and requirements of flame retardant reflective fabrics?  For non-frontline workers, perhaps in our daily life, we have less knowledge and attention on flame-retardant reflective fabrics , reflective materials, and other information. At most, we can see clothing with reflective fabrics. So what are flame-retardant reflective fabrics? What are the functions and requirements?   1. Washing requirements before testing:    A.75 degrees, wash 12 times (following the industrial washing method of EN ISO 10528; it can also be washed 5 times according to customer requirements, and then tested.

Meet ASTM1506; before washing or dry cleaning, press D6413 to perform vertical burning, and the continuous burning time is up to 2 seconds; after 25 washing or dry

The principle of 3M reflective material

The principle of 3M reflective material The 3M reflective material products are around our life, you can find them everywhere in the poor lighting environment, such as reflective raincoats, safety vests, reflective shoes, reflective helmets, etc.  All of them show high brighter visibility than their surroundings, do you know why it is so eye-catching in the poor light situation? I will show you the principle of 3M reflective material in the following. 3M reflective material is based on the principle of light retroreflection. In order to ensure the reflected light can reflect in the same direction as the incident light, 3M reflective material makes use of the (miro glass beads)/(miro prism) to control the path of reflected light.  Miro glass beads Miro prism Miro glass beads and miro prism on the surface of reflective material can collect the incident lights and refect them into the same direction, even the angle of incident light has a big change so that the 3M reflective material can

How to clean reflective material?

 How to clean reflective material? Actually, I don't suggest you wash the reflective material frequently, it will make some miro glass beads fall off during the washing process, then weak the reflective effect of the material, thus you need to reduce the washing times for your reflective product. If your reflective material is dirty, please don't wash the reflective material by water directly, I will teach you how to clean the reflective material in the following.  PS: If only a little dirty on the reflective material, just wipe it with a soft cloth. When it really needs to be cleaned, you can follow the next way to clean the reflective material. Preparations: A neutral detergent and cold water (temperature is lower than 30 degrees), soft cloth. Steps to clean the reflective material: 1. Put the neutral detergent into the cold water 2. Touch the mixed water with a soft cloth 3. Wipe the reflective material 4.

 How does reflective material works? Reflective materials are applied in our surroundings, you can see reflective material from the highway signs, road signs, construction zone, and construction work clothing, traffic police clothing, even display on the bike, truck body, graphic on the garment, helmet or shoes. They are very eye-catching, have high brightness at night, but how does it work?  The principle of reflective material is to collect the surrounding light by multi retro reflection, then reflect all collected light into the same direction with original lighting by stronger lighting form than before, to achieve the high visibility of the reflective material. In order to achieve the whole reflective effect, the miro glass beads are used on the surface of reflective material, to finish the multi retro reflection.  The basic principle of reflection Miro glass beads When miro glass beads are coated on the surface, and more than half of beads are inserted into the kinds of backing ma

Why has reflective feature for reflective fabric  The retroreflective feature is coming from the micro glass beads on the surface of the based fabric. According to the different requirements of different applications, the intensity of the reflection is different. For the details, you can visit my other blog: How does reflective material work .

Why multifunctional reflective protective clothing?  I believe everyone knows more or less about reflective protective clothing, but when it comes to multi-functional reflective protective clothing, some people may be confused: Does the multifunctional have any special features? Or is it just a few more reflective strips?  Today, I will take everyone to understand what is multi-functional reflective protective clothing and what it does.    General duty reflective vests only have front and back reflections, and the sides cannot reflect light, so they cannot provide good protection for outdoor law enforcement personnel. When they are directing traffic when the front and back are facing the red light, vehicles are prohibited; when standing on the side, motor vehicles pass.  At this time, the side of the reflective vest cannot reflect light, which will bring safety hazards to the traffic police. The fluorescent yellow of the new reflective protective duty suit is very eye-catching. It also
