XW8003-C Iridescent Reflective Fabric with Polyester Backing Description

XW 8003 – C  is polyester backing iridescent reflective fabric material supplied from XW Reflective manufacturer. And this reflective fabric shows different colors in a day, black in the daytime, iridescent colors in the night time when there is a light source.

The reflective fabric will show different colors, such as red, grey, green, thus we called it rainbow reflective fabric.

The reflective effect of retro-reflective fabric benefits from index 1.93 glass beads reflecting light from the lighting source and pre-designed multicolor pattern reflectivity. Incoming light source bends as it passes through the front surface of each glass beads, and reflective off a mirrored surface behind the bead. The aluminum coating process is different from other reflective fabric, this is the pre-designed aluminum coating,  the final reflective will show different patterns. This is what we called retro-reflective material. Thus the reflective fabric illuminates when placed poor light area.

Reflective Fabric Introduction

Reflective fabric for clothing is made of the substrate, composite glue, reflective layer, and glass beads, widely used for outdoor safety reflective products, such as safety equipment, safety uniforms, work clothing, sanitation clothing. and these reflective safety products’ application benefits from the reflective effect of the reflective fabric tape.

So XW Reflective transfers the microbeads to the cloth base through the aluminized plant film to achieve the reflective effect of reflective fabric tape. Moreover, whether day or night, Reflective fabric always express excellent retroreflective feature, can reflect the direct light from a long distance back to the luminous place.

As we all know, there are kinds of reflective material in the market, the most common reflective fabric materials are reflective chemical fiber cloth and reflective T / C cloth. XW Reflective is one of a leading reflective fabric supplier in China, mainly manufacture and provide glossy reflective clothing, high gloss reflective fabric, reflective hear transfer film, reflective fireproof fabric, reflective tape, reflective glass bead tape, elastic reflective fabric, reflective lattice belt and so on. All of these reflective products have different features & applications, with different reflection values and parameters, already passed TUV testing and American ANSI certification, top quality exceeding European (EN471) standards.

Features of Reflective Fabric Material

Reflective material categories into reflective sheeting and reflective fabric, reflective fabric tape applies for personal safety and fashion application. Reflective fabric always shows in our daily life as we all know, such as reflective clothing, safety vest, reflective hat, reflective bag, etc. And reflective material has 4 points features as below:

Material of Reflective Fabric

Reflective fabric is one of the essential materials for personal safety, now days, this reflective material also gets more popular in the fashion industry. Reflective tape is composed of lens glass beads with different backing fabric, the most common materials are polyester, T/C, spandex. For fashion garments, we also supply reflective heat transfer vinyl, rainbow reflective fabric, and reflective printing fabric.

Diversity of reflective material

In order to match the characteristics and uses of other products, reflective material is manufactured as different reflectivity, backing fabric, washing cycles reflective tape for daily necessaries application, usually divide into reflective cloth, reflective thermosensitive film, reflective yarn, reflective logo and other products for various style of application.

Washing cycles of reflective fabric

Reflective fabric generally requires to pass the washing cycles, normally we are talking about domestic washing cycles for most of reflective fabric. Domestic washing ISO 6330, 6n, at 60℃ for 25 washing cycles, the reflective fabric remains the minimum coefficient of retro-reflection after domestic washing cycles, rainfall, and cold temperature. Moreover, some specific reflective fabric is requiring to qualify for industrial wash, this reflective material is applied for reflective garments for oil, petrol, or mining application.

Reflectivity of reflective material tape

Reflective material tape can reflect original light under the lighting of headlamp light or road light. I think many drivers know that when you are driving on the highway. As the name suggests, reflectivity is one of the most important characteristics of reflective materials.

It is precisely because of the reflective nature that reflective materials can provide the most effective and reliable personal safety guarantee at night or in poor sight environments.

Wide-angle of reflective material

Reflective material usually has a better wide-angle, so that reflective fabric also can keep a good reflective effect, reflect light directly even there is a wide-angle between reflective film and lighting.

This wide-angle feature of reflective fabric material is applied to the production of reflective work clothes like uniforms of traffic police, which can well improve the personal safety in the dark situation, such as roadway, construction work zone, etc.

Service life of reflective fabric

Generally speaking, the service life of reflective fabric is different from reflective sheeting, reflective fabric applies for garments, vests, shoes, hats, etc, thus washing cycles for either domestic wash or industrial wash is more essential. For example, XW2606-2B polyester reflective fabric tape has 25 domestic washing cycles, whereas, XW2720-6 TC reflective fabric meets 100 domestic washing cycles.

Standards of reflective fabric tape.

The grade of reflective fabric can usually be followed by polyester, T/C and aramid other categories.

Of course, the raw reflective material using and selling price of reflective tape is different due to the different requirements of reflection value and service life. For example, the aramid flame resistant reflective tape has a feature of flame and heat resistant, this is important material for fireman garments. In a word, you can choose a different standards of reflective tape according to your needs.

Application of reflective fabric

Reflective fabric doesn’t use single backing fabric material, usually use different backing material according to different requirements of application. such as polyester, T/C, aramid, BPU, PES, etc. For example, elastic reflective tape XW2606-8 with backing material polyester and spandex, the process is sewing on different garments; whereas, reflective heat transfer vinyl XW8006, it is BPU backing, thus the process is hot pressing. All reflective fabric can apply for reflective clothing, reflective shirts, reflective fashion shirts, reflective vest, glow in the dark tape, security vest, reflective triangles, reflective jacket.
