Reflective Material – Grey Reflective Transfer Film TF-HW254000
V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Silver Reflective Transfer Film TF-HW254000 consists of exposed high performance glass lenses bonded to a durable polymer layer, which is coated with a heat activated adhesive.
V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Silver Reflective Transfer Film TF-HW254000 comes with a PET protective film on the reflective side.
! Transfer in low temperature 130 °C (270 °F)
! EN ISO 20471 approved
! ANSI-ISAE 107 level 2
! Workable on wide range of substrate fabrics, polyester, cotton, lycra, etc.
! 25 home washing cycles at 40 °C per ISO 6330 (Properly transfer to backing fabric)
V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Silver Reflective Transfer Film TF-HW254000 exceeds the minimum reflectivity requirements of EN ISO 20471, ANSI-ISAE 107 Level 2, when tested at e = 0° or e = 90° in accordance with the procedures stated on standards. Minimum coefficients of retro-reflection required by standards are shown as below table.

Cutting and Plotting -
Die-cutting is recommended, although it can also be hand-cut or guillotined. When apply
V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material – Transfer Film to plotter for images cutting, remove adhesive side liner (if that product has one), the protective PET film on the surface of reflective side should be used as the carrier until plotted images are applying (laminating) to target substrate.
REMARK: Choose the recommended V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Transfer Film for plotter cutting. TF-HW254000 is NOT recommended for plotter cutting.
Images may be printed on the surface of some V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material – Transfer Film. All inks should be continuously tested to ensure acceptable adhesion in the event of change occurring in the manufacturing process or composition of the ink. Prior to printing, wiping the surface with a soft cloth lightly dampened with isopropyl alcohol may help ink adhesion. Printed are as will not be retro reflective.
Adhesive Side Liner
Reflective Side Liner
1- Work on a flat surface where uniform heat and pressure can be applied. Avoid applying film over seams and stitches.
2- Remove adhesive side line (if that product has one), exposing dry adhesive. Do not remove reflective side liner.
3- Place V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Transfer Film on substrate with the adhesive side down and apply heat and pressure as described in the table below. Place a non-stick slip sheet between the platen and laminating surface to prevent any excess adhesive transfer contamination.
4- Allow application to cool to room temperature before removing the liner covering the reflective side (if that product has one). Place application on a flat surface and remove the liner by lifting one corner and pulling (about 45o angle) in a continuous, smooth manner.
1- V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Transfer Film contain an aluminum layer as part of their construction. Blemishing of this aluminum layer can occur if the PET film carrier is removed and the front surface of the product has direct contact from hands during application and is then exposed to hot and humid conditions, greater than 26.7 °C (80 °F) and greater than 70% relative humidity, for a period of weeks. These blemishes do not affect performance of the product.
2- V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Transfer Film may not be compatible with some polyvinyl chloride (PVC, vinyl) film, especially those containing phosphate plasticizers. It is possible that some plasticizers may be able to migrate into the reflective material, making the reflective surface soft and sticky. We recommend that substrates always tested prior to production to ensure that they meet your specific needs.
3- Fabric finished with dyes containing sulfur compounds should not be used with V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material - Industrial Wash Transfer Film and Flame Resistant Transfer Film. Exposure to sulfur compounds in dyes or in the environment will darken the retro-reflective material and may effect retro-reflectivity.
A colored clothing wash program without pre-wash should be used.
• Wash temperature range: 0°C to 30°C
• Max. Wash time at highest wash temperature: 12 minutes
• Max. Program time: 50 minutes
Do not use additional bleach
• No chlorine bleach.
• No bleaches on oxygen basis (e.g. sodium perborate).
Do not pre-soak laundry even in a low concentration of bleach.
