3M™ Scotchlite™ silver reflective fabric 8935 with high reflection values for high-visibility clothing, especially firefighting garments and flame-resistant workwear.
The 3M™ Scotchlite™ silver reflective fabric 8935 on high-visibility clothing, especially firefighting garments and flame-resistant workwear, helps to enhance 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. The product is characterised by a high degree of heat resistance and outstanding durability during use. 3M's reflective fabric is composed of exposed retroreflective glass beads bonded to a durable flame-resistant 100% cotton fabric with a special bonding layer. It meets ISO 20471 requirements but easily exceeds the minimum reflections values required at the highest performance level, thus greatly improving the visibility of people. As the base fabric is made of finished cotton, the reflective material does not affect the flame-retardant properties of the garment and it exceeds EN 469 flammability requirements. For this reason, it is a very good choice for flameproof protective clothing, especially if the clothing is laundered at home. The reflective fabric 8935 with a high degree of wear resistance and durability is easily washable at home up to 60°C (50 cycles as per ISO 20471). Dry cleaning is also possible (30 cycles as per ISO 3175). The material itself can be used on delicate fabrics. When it comes to tough fabrics, the user can choose any care procedure. Another advantage: The material is available in various widths and can be printed on, embroidered on, embossed or used for piping or stamping parts. This means that individual designs can be implemented easily. In addition, the retroreflective properties of the material are independent of the grain on the garment and achieve a good impact even when wet. This means good visibility is ensured for many angles of incidence and even in poor weather conditions. The patented glass bead technology of 3M ensures a very textile appearance, making the fabric flexible and light and creating a high degree of wear comfort.
