Home Wash (Domestic Laundry) Guidelines

A colored clothing wash program without pre-wash should be used. Follow below recommendation could maintain the duability of retro-reflective to its maxium lifespan.

Recommendation:

  1. Detergent: Brand powdered household detergents should be used.
    • Refer to the detergent manufacturer?s recommendations for dosage in areas of high water hardness and for various degrees of garment soiling.
  2. Wash temperature range: 15°C to 60°C
    • Some items could be extended to be home-washed with a wider range of washing temperature than above.
    • Some items could be applicable to wash temperature ranging from 0°C to 90°C for those garment requiring harsher cleaning. Read the physical performance of each reflective tape for the details.
  3. Max. Wash time at highest wash temperature: 12 minutes
  4. Max. Program time: 50 minutes
  5. Use of temperatures lower than 60°C will increase the lifetime of the reflective material.
  6. Actual lifetime will be dependent upon the detergent system and list dosage level.
  7. Load factor higher than 65% might lead to enhanced abrasion of the retro-reflective material

Handling Precautions

V-REFLEXTM  Reflective Material - Reflective Heat Transfer Film/Tape contains an aluminum layer as part of their construction. Blemishing of this aluminum layer can occur if surface of the product has direct contact from hands during application and is then exposed to hot and humid conditions, greater than 26.7 °C (80 °F) and greater than 70% relative humidity, for a period of weeks. These blemishes do not affect performance of the product. But potential blemishes should be carefully considered as an important risk in marketing of end-use products.

V-REFLEXTM  Reflective Material - Reflective Heat Transfer Film/Tape contains an sand-feeling reflective layer which is composing of an eco-friendly heat activated adhesive. Chemical moisture, liquid, oil, or other chemical elements may lead to a series of chemical reactions for a certain period of time, then result in a series unexpected subsequence on the reflective layer. Any remains of chemical elements happen to direct contacting to surface of fabric should be cleaned immediately.

We recommend that all customers, in accordance with good manufacturing practices, establish an ongoing quality system which includes maintaining lot/roll identification throughout the garment production process.

Customer should also store input materials and final products in accordance with manufacturer recommendations, as well as implement continuous testing throughout their production and on their finished garments that reflects their garment needs.

For lamination operations, customers should periodically check their equipment to ensure that the temperature set point matches the platen or roll temperature and that the temperature is uniform across the lamination area.

Other Important Information

Specific Safety Information

Various environmental factors, like line of sight, rain, fog, smoke, dust and visual noise can influence retroreflectivity.

  • The reflective intentsity of retro-reflective tape can also be diminished in extreme weather conditions.
  • Fog, mist, smoke and dust can scatter the light from headlights, the wearer must be aware that detection distance will be severely reduced.
  • Visual noise (contrast variations in the visual field) decreases the contrast of the reflective material with the background and affects the visibility in low-light conditions.  

Maintenance Misuse

  • No harsh mechanical treatment, e.g. abrasion with wire brushes or sand paper.
  • No uniform coating or spraying of oils, protective waxes, inks or paint.
  • No application of products such as leather spray or shoe shine.
