3M™ Scotchlite™ segmented silver reflective transfer film 5535 with high reflection values for high-visibility clothing subject to heavy wear such as industrial and occupational garments, especially flame-resistant workwear, laundering and are dried in a tunnel finisher.
The 3M™ Scotchlite™ segmented silver reflective transfer film 5535 on high-visibility clothing subject to heavy wear such as industrial and occupational garments, leisure wear and accessories helps to improve the visibility of the wearer at night or in low-light conditions. The material shines white when illuminated, even if the wearer is at the roadside. It is comprised of exposed retroreflective glass beads bonded to a durable polymer layer coated with a heat-activated adhesive. 3M's reflective transfer film meets ISO 20471 requirements but easily exceeds the minimum reflections values required at the highest performance level, thus greatly improving the visibility of people. The reflective material does not affect the flame-retardant properties of the garment, and it is renowned for its good long-term flame resistance as per EN 469. For this reason, it is a very good choice for flameproof protective clothing. It offers good value for money for high-visibility and occupational garments that require greater durability laundered at home. The segmented reflective transfer film 5535 is easily washable at home up to 60°C (65 cycles as per ISO 20471). Even when industrially laundered (15 cycles as per ISO 15797) and dried in a tunnel finisher, the material exhibits very good wash and chemical resistance and good abrasion resistance. For this reason, is it particularly suitable for garments that undergo industrial washing and dried in a tunnel finisher or drum dryer, such as rental garments. The reflective transfer film is assimilated through lamination and is thus permanently bonded to the garment without adding bulk. Because of this, it offers improved wear comfort and is also suitable for garments with membranes. Another advantage: The segmentation ensures better comfort and increased breathability. In addition, the retroreflective properties of the material are independent of the grain on the garment and achieve a good impact even when wet. The 3M™ Scotchlite™ brand
