V-REFLEX™ Reflective Material
Silver Reflective Fabric
V-REFLEX ™ Reflective Material— Silver Reflective Fabric is intended for the application on high-visibility warning clothing such as occupational work wear, consumer garments and accessories to enhance the visibility of the wearer during darkness and low light conditions. The fabric will appear brilliant white, when illuminated by vehicle headlights, even when the wearer is situated at the side of the road.

Clothing intended for non-excessive wash- and wear-impact, e.g. high visibility garment class 3.
Clothing for pedestrians, joggers, cyclists and children.
Head-, arm-, leg-bands, gloves, footwear, webbing, pipings, belts, back packs, emblems and logos.
Die-cutting is recommended, although it can also be hand-cut or guillotined.
Note: Use very sharp cutting knives only and cut from the reflective side.
For the best results, sew in place using a lockstitch and with no more than 12 stitches per inch (2.54 cm), and not less than 5/64” (2 mm) from the edge of the reflective fabric. Recommend for applying to light and medium weight fabrics.
Screen Printing - Images may be printed on the surface of V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Reflective Fabric. 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 areas will not be retro-reflective.
Sublimation Printing - This printing method is applicable to V-REFLEXTM Reflective Material - Reflective Fabric.

ŸNo chlorine bleach.
ŸNo bleaches on oxygene basis (e.g. sodium perborate bleaches).
ŸDo not store a wash batch even in a low concentration of bleach.
ŸTumble drying should be performed in a commercially available household dryer using the medium dry setting.
ŸExhaust temperature should not exceed 60°C.
ŸDo not over-dry.
ŸDamp dry only.
ŸLine drying is recommended where possible.
ŸUse medium setting, use press cloth.
ŸDo not apply steam.
Store in a cool, dry area and use within 1 year of receipt.
Rolls should be stored in their original cartons, whilst 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.
Special Cleaning Instructions
For application on rainwear, a regular fluorocarbon treatment of the garment is recommended.
Chemical splashes should be removed with a soft, dry cloth. Cleaning the garment the same day is recommended.
Splashes of strong acids or alkalis should immediately be neutralised with plenty of water.
Contamination with toxic or poisonous substances or biocontamination will require the application of a specific decontamination process.
Application of high alkaline products, high pH-products, bleaches etc. is not recommended.
Do not overdry. The temperature of the material should not exceed 60°C at any time during drying.
No harsh mechanical treatment, e.g. abrasion with wire brushes or sand paper.
No uniform coating or spraying of oils, protective waxes, inks or paint.
No application of products such as leather spray or shoe shine.
Specific Safety Information
Various environmental factors, like line of sight, rain, fog, smoke, dust and visual noise can influence visibility.
The brightness of V-CAN V-REFLEX ™ Reflective Material - RF-HW506030 Silver Reflective Fabric can also be diminished in extreme weather conditions.
Test results show, that RF-HW506030 Silver Reflective Fabric exceeds the retro-reflective performance requirements in rainfall conditions as defined in EN ISO 20471. Initial brightness levels return as the material dries.
Fog, mist, smoke and dust can scatter the light from headlights, the wearer must be aware that detection distance will be severely reduced.
Visual noise (contrast variations in the visual field) decreases the contrast of the reflective material with the background and affects the visibility in low-light conditions.
