What is the reflective principle of reflective cloth?
Reflective materials are also called retroreflective materials. Reflective cloth is an exposed reflective material, which is a composite of base cloth, glue and thousands of high-refractive glass beads. Glass microbeads are located on the outermost surface of the reflective cloth and are in direct contact with air.
Reflective cloth can be roughly divided into ordinary bright reflective cloth, bright reflective cloth and bright silver reflective cloth according to the brightness, color and production process.

Aluminized or non-alumined glass microbeads use the optical principle of refraction and reflection of light in the glass microbeads to return the reflected light to the light source in the original path, so that observers near the light source can clearly see The goal is to effectively avoid accidents and ensure the wearer's personal safety.
The degree to which the reflective cloth improves safety is measured by its reflective intensity. The higher the reflective intensity, the better the eye-catching effect, and the farther the driver finds the target. The glass beads after aluminizing can greatly improve the reflective brightness of the reflective cloth. Studies have found that bright silver reflective fabrics can be found by motorists from 300 meters away.
