What is Reflective Fabric?
Reflective Fabric utilizes coated glass beads to reflect incoming light back toward its source. It is encapsulated onto a Poly-Cotton blended fabric (65% Polyester, 35% Cotton) and laminated with our Permanent P600 5-Mil Adhesive. It is a durable fabric with a heavy hand, both washable and dryable. Can be heat-pressed or sewn onto garments. NOTE: This product can be plotter-cut, but that is not recommended as the glass beads will dull the blade quickly. Therefore, we strongly recommend laser-cutting. It can also be die-cut or waterjet-cut.
Can These Products Be Layered?
Yes. Reflective HTV Vinyls can be layered (but not overlapped) with other HTV products and fabrics (e.g. Vinyl on Vinyl). It may be layered on top of Sports Twill or Sports Felt (but not Metallic Twill ) or used with any other heat transfer materials. Reflective Fabric can be layered on top of any material except for Metallic Twill. Overlapping is only possible if the transfer is sewn onto the garment.
Are These Products Stretchable?
No. These are among the most durable products offered by Twill USA. As such, it has minimal rebound and a stiffer feel. Pliable, but not stretchable.
To Which Fabrics Does They Adhere?
Our Reflective HTV Vinyl adheres to Acrylics, 100% Cotton, Polyester Knits, Polyester Mesh, 100% Polyester, Poly-Cotton Blends, Poly Form and Cotton Caps. The Reflective Fabric is recommended for use with Acrylics, 100% Cotton, Polyester Knits (not Mesh), 100% Polyester, Poly-Cotton Blends, Poly Form and Cotton Caps.
How Durable Is The Reflective Vinyl and Fabric?
Our Reflective Materials are extremely durable. They have been tested to withstand 50 wash and dry cycles without cracking, peeling or fading.
What Are The Care Instructions For These Products?
For best results, we recommend that you wait 24 hours before washing for the first time. Turn the garment(s) inside out and use cold temperature with a mild detergent only. Hang dry. Do not use bleach.
Can Reflective HTV Vinyl and Fabric Be Ironed Onto Garments?
Unlike some competitors, Twill USA-made Reflective Materials feature a Permanent Hot-Melt Adhesive backing that can be ironed onto garments directly. When your iron is at temperature, place a TeflonTM sheet over the transfer, then use light-to-medium pressure for about 15 seconds. Let cool before peeling warm. If any part of the design has difficulty adhering to garments, simply iron the transfer for an additional 5-10 seconds.
Do I Cut This Material Shiny-side Up or Shiny-side Down?
Reflective HTV Vinyl is designed to work with any laser cutter, plotter or desktop (craft) cutter — including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo — you must mirror the design before cutting. Load the material into your cutting machine with the shiny-side facedown. We recommend that you make a ‘test cut’ prior to using Reflective HTV for the first time to ensure that your cut settings are correct. NOTE: Reflective Fabric should be laser-cut, die-cut or waterjet-cut instead of plotter-cut as the glass beads will dull the cutting blade.
