What are the classifications of reflective cloth?
Reflective cloth can be roughly divided into ordinary bright reflective cloth, bright reflective cloth and bright silver reflective cloth according to brightness, composite process and color.
Puliang reflective cloth is gray, and its glass beads have not been aluminized, and the reflective brightness is generally around 5-20. It is suitable for sewing light fabrics that do not require high reflective brightness, such as reflective vests that do not meet the standards.
The bright reflective cloth is silver-grey in the daytime, and the aluminized glass microbeads on the surface can be clearly seen. The maximum reflective brightness can be greater than 420 cd / lux / m². It is suitable for sewing in various reflective vests and other lightweight fabrics.
Bright silver reflective cloth shows metallic silver during the day. Using aluminized glass beads, the maximum reflective brightness can be greater than 420 cd / lux / m². It is suitable for sewing light or medium-sized fabrics with high reflective brightness and washing requirements, such as high Quality reflective vest or reflective jacket, etc.
Reflective cloth can also be divided into chemical fiber reflective cloth, TC reflective cloth, flame retardant reflective cloth, elastic reflective cloth and so on.
The chemical fiber reflective cloth uses 100% chemical fiber 190T polyester silk as the base fabric, which is thinner and lighter than the TC base fabric. TC reflective cloth uses 35% cotton and 65% chemical fiber polyester cotton fabric as the base fabric, which is thicker than chemical fiber.
Flame retardant reflective cloth is usually divided into cotton flame retardant reflective cloth and aramid flame retardant reflective cloth. 100% cotton flame retardant reflective cloth is used as the base fabric, which is more economical and affordable. Aramid flame-resistant reflective cloth uses aramid fabric as the base fabric, which is inherently flame-retardant, and is suitable for fire-fighting suits that require high flame-retardant requirements. Xinghua Flame Retardant Reflective Fabric passed the certifications of international standards such as EN ISO 20471: 2013, EN 469: 2005, ISO 14116: 2015, ISO 11612: 2015 issued by SATRA Technology Center.
The elastic reflective cloth uses spandex and chemical fiber blended fabric as the base fabric, which has a certain elasticity, and is suitable for sewing on various elastic fabrics.
The EN ISO 20471: 2013 European standard and the ANSI / ISEA 107: 2015 American standard stipulate that the brightness of the reflective cloth must reach 330 cd / lux / m², the washing requirement is greater than 25 times, and it has passed a series of physical tests. Therefore, for reflective clothing that meets the requirements, it is necessary to use a reflective cloth that meets the standards.
Xinghua Reflective has been focusing on the production and development of reflective cloth for 15 years. The products have passed various European and American international standard tests and are exported to more than 100 countries overseas. For details, please contact 400-645-2556.
