Fabrics
Fabrics are composed of retroreflective lenses bonded to a variety of fabric backings. They sew easily onto other fabrics and can be embroidered or screen printed for patches and emblems. Fabrics may be hand-cut, die-cut, slit or guillotined.

Graphic Transfers
Graphics transfers are made by screen printing an adhesive in reverse print onto the back side of a sheet of retroreflective lenses. The printed transfer is then heat laminated directly to fabric.

High Gloss Materials
High gloss materials are composed of microprisms bonded to a flexible, glossy, UV-stabilized plymeric film. They are available either sealed to a vinyl backing or unsealed for custom converting. They may be sewn or RF/HF welded to compatible surfaces.

Inks
Inks are composed of a water-based (latex) ink base combined with retroreflective lenses. They are used for direct screen printing onto fabric for decorative, reflective images.

Miscellaneous
Reflective tire sheeting and vulcanizable film are composed of flexible, durable, exposed lens retroreflective sheeting designed for vulcanization to compatible non-staining natural rubber compounds. Typical applications include tires (bicycle, truck, etc.), and footwear (boots, running shoes, etc.).

Pressure-sensitive Adhesive (PSA) Films
Pressure-sensitive adhesive films are composed of retroreflective lenses bonded to a variety of PSA. They are easy to apply to rigid substrates and may be hand-cut, die-cut or kiss-cut, and may be screen printed.

SOLAS
SOLAS grade products are composed of an encapsulated lens incorporated onto two types of backing: sewable and PSA. They perform well whether wet or dry and enhance the visibility of life support equipment such as life vests, jackets, rafts and other fabrics.

Transfer Films
Transfer films are composed of retroreflective lenses bonded to a variety of heat-activated adhesives. They are ideal for conversion into emblems, patches, logos and labels in a variety of shapes, sizes, numbers and letters.

Trims
