Reflective yarns are frequently used in safety webbing, reflective fabric strips and binding materials on sportswear.

reflect_0Reflective yarns are manufactured yarns made from polymers that have minute glass beads distributed within the polymer. These glass beads, when exposed to light, reflect light back to its source. Other yarns are composed of polymers that have florescent materials distributed throughout the yarns. The florescent materials gather energy when exposed to a light source and glow when the light is removed.

Sample applications of reflective yarns include:
  • Reflective safety webbing
  • Reflective barrier fabric strips
  • Binding material on sportswear
