V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material- Iron On Silver Reflective Film TF-HW254000
V-REFLEX™ TF-HW254000 Iron on silver reflective film for garment is designed for use on safety garments and casual wear. When properly used, TF-HW256025 Iron on silver reflective film for garment 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-REFLEX™ TF-HW254000 Iron on silver reflective film for garment exceeds the minimum reflectivity requirements of EN471 Level 2.
V-REFLEX™ TF-HW254000 Iron on silver reflective film for garment is composed of wide-angle, exposed retro-reflective lenses bonded to a heat activated adhesive with a PET reflective side liner.
V-REFLEX™ TF-HW254000 Iron on silver reflective film for garment is featured in silver(daytime color) with a brilliant white reflected color.
V-REFLEX™ TF-HW254000 Iron on silver reflective film for garment exceeds the minimum reflectivity requirements of EN471 Level 2, when tested at e = 0° or e = 90° in accordance with the procedures in EN471. Minimum coefficients of retro-reflection are shown as below.

V-REFLEX™ TF-HW254000 Iron on silver reflective film for garment is used together on a single flat surface or as a set where uniform heat and pressure can be applied.
Avoid applying film over seams and stitches
Remove adhesive side liner,exposing dry adhesive. Do not remove reflective side liner.
Place the product on substrate with the adhesive side down and apply heat and pressure.
Precautions for Heat Lamination
Do not exceed lamination temperatures listed below as the paper liner may become difficult to remove. If high temperatures are required for bond durability, follow lamination steps 1-3 using recommended temperature, remove paper liner, and then laminate again at the higher temperature (using a non-stick slip sheet to protect reflective surface).

The lamination temperature, time and pressure listed below should be used as a guide. Each substrate and reflective film combination should be tested to determine the best set of conditions that will meet customer requirements.
Other lamination methods, such as roll to roll, heat fusing and HF welding can also be used. The proper temperature, time and pressure conditions must be tested for each fabric to assure adequate adhesion and physical performance.
