Reflective materials are also called retroreflective materials. Reflective cloth is an exposed reflective material, which is composed of base cloth, glue and thousands of high-refractive glass beads. The glass beads are located on the surface of the reflective cloth and are in direct contact with the air.
Reflective fabrics can be roughly divided into ordinary reflective fabrics, high-brightness reflective fabrics and bright silver reflective fabrics according to brightness, color and production process.
Aluminum-coated or non-aluminum-coated glass beads, using the optical principle of refraction and reflection in the glass beads, can make the reflected light return to the light source according to the original path.
Therefore, observers near the light source can clearly see the target, effectively avoid accidents, and ensure the personal safety of the wearer.
The degree of safety improvement of reflective cloth is measured by its reflective intensity. The higher the reflective intensity, the better the eye-catching effect, and the farther the driver can find the target.
Aluminized glass beads can greatly improve the reflective brightness of the reflective fabric. Studies have found that bright silver reflective cloth can be spotted by motorists from 300 meters away.
