3M’s latest advancement in reflective applications for uniforms is a durable material that can be used to make officers visible both night and day. Certified to ANSI/ ISEA 107-2004, new Scotchlite reflective material 9720 industrial wash transfer film is an alternative to industrial wash sew-on trims, as well as vinyl products, which can be stiff and uncomfortable. Uniforms and safety garments worn by law enforcement often require industrial laundering, which can be tough on reflective components. Often, the drawback can be that the more durable the garment, the less comfortable it becomes. The new Scotchlite reflective material 9720 industrial wash transfer film from 3M was designed to address this problem. It is applied by heat lamination, which allows it to become an integral part of the garment for a more comfortable feeling, yet will still stand up to certain industrial laundering conditions. Heat-transfer lamination also allows reflective trim to be applied to newly finished garments. This compares to traditional sew-on products, which are applied during the garment manufacturing process. Certified to ANSI/ISEA 107- 2004 Level 2 and EN 471 Class 2 retroreflective material specifications, this Scotchlite reflective material is also silver beaded with a typical brightness of 500RA.
