V-CAN V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100-CTN is designed for use on flame resistant safety garments requiring industrial laundry. When properly used, V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100-CTN help enhance the visibility of the wearer in nighttime or low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source such as headlights, by returning the light back toward the original source and reaching the automobile driver’s eye. V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Reflective Fabric is composed of wide angle, exposed retro-reflective lenses bonded to a flame resistant, durable aramid fiber backing. Aramid is a class of heat resistant and strong synthetic fabric. What is Aramid Fiber Aramid fibers are man-made high-performance fibers, with molecules that are characterized by relatively rigid polymer chains. These molecules are linked by strong hydrogen bonds that transfer mechanical stress very efficiently, making it possible to use chains of relatively low molecular weight. The term “aramid” is short for “aromatic polyamide”. Aromatic polyamides were first applied commercially as meta-aramid fibers in the early 1960s, with para-aramid fibers being developed in the 1960s and 1970s. Aramid fibers share some general characteristics that distinguish them from other synthetic fibers: 1 High strength 2 Good resistance to abrasion 3 Good resistance to organic solvents 4 Non-conductive 5 No melting point 6 Low flammability 7 Good fabric integrity at elevated temperatures Performance according to EN 471 (High-Visibility Warning Clothing) V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100 exceeds the highest brightness requirements (EN471 Level 2) for retro-reflective material. • Is non-orientation sensitive. • Offers 60°C domestic wash durability, 100 cycles per EN 471. • Offers 90°C domestic wash durability, 25 cycles per ISO 6330 Method 1A. • Offers industrial laundering and fi nishing durability per EN471. • Offers good dry-cleaning durability, 100 cycles per EN 471. • Offers enhanced abrasion and chemical resistance.

Product Application Retroreflective materials are important in applications where being visible can reduce the risk of an accident. Examples of hazardous situations where high-visibility garments should be worn include exposure to vehicular traffic of motorways, rural and urban roads, railway environments, airports and docks. V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100-CTN is a highly durable flame resistant material recommended for garments that will be subjected to domestic or industrial laundry procedures. Occupational Application Fire fighting apparel and flame resistant occupational work wear, where enhanced flame and heat resistance as well as high wear durability is required, such as fire coats, turnout coats, trousers, coveralls, jackets and uniforms. Product Converting Cutting V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100-CTN can be handcut, die-cut or guillotined (max. 5 cm stack height). Note: Use very sharp cutting knives only and cut from the refl ective side.
Sewing V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100-CTN can be applied directly to a fabric. It is best suited for flame resistant fabrics with a weight of 230 - 350 g/m². The reflective fabric should be sewn with a Teflon® coated brand circular top needle, using a flame retardent thread (e.g. aramid). To minimise edge fraying, sew in place using a lockstitch of 3 mm stitch length, placed at least 3 mm from the edge of the refl ective fabric. Note: Whenever two or more pieces of refl ective fabric are used together on a single surface or as a set, they should be matched to ensure uniform daytime colour appearance. Colour variations may occur during the production of new retrorefl ective material. These do not affect the performance of the V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material , which will comply to the performance requirements described in EN 471 for retrorefl ective material. Silk Screen Printing Due to the product construction, durable prints on glass bead products are difficult to obtain. Choice of ink will depend upon usage conditions and care procedures. User should make test applications and select the appropriate care instruction for the fi nished product to ensure adequate adhesion of the ink. It is recommended that the ink adhesion be tested on the actual batch of V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100-CTN being used before production. Opaque silk screen printing inks will appear black, transparent inks will reduce brightness when viewed as retrorefl ected light in low-light conditions. Handling and Storage Product Storage Store in a cool, dry area and use within 2 year of receipt. Rolls should be stored in their original cartons, while partially used rolls should be returned to their carton or suspended horizontally from the core via a rod or pipe. Cut sheets should be stored flat. Handling and Storage Precautions Agressive chemicals, e.g., sulphur or chlorine containing compounds, perspiration, strong acids or bases may affect the aesthetic appearance of V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material. When exposed to excessive heat and more than 70% relative humidity conditions, these products have the potential to become stained. These stains do not affect the retrorefl ective performance of the material and do not indicate that the input product was defective. Care must be taken by the user when handling V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material in hot and humid environments. During application, storage and shipping, ambient conditions should be kept. Measures like cooling, dehumidifying the manufacturing area and specifi c handling precautions should be taken. Appropriate specific storekeeping is essential. Product Maintenance Reflective fabrics and films naturally age. Ageing depends upon material type, conditions of use, environment and maintenance procedures. The retro-reflective performance of all reflective materials is affected by soiling. Any kind of dirt, liquid chemicals, grease and alike will reduce brightness in the area of contamination. Product Cleaning Frequent care and maintenance will ensure the continued effectiveness of the reflective material. The cleaning frequency of the clothing depends on the degree of soiling expected in the working environment. It is recommended that the garment be cleaned after every intervention. Before usage, the user shall determine the suitability of the intended care process for V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Flame Resistant Industrial Wash Retro-Reflective Fabric RF-FRIW5085100-CTN.
