Reflective technology has been around for decades. Originally, it utilized coated glass beads to reflect incoming light back toward its source. In fact, the proper nomenclature is “Retroreflective.” Today, in addition to the glass beads, there exists prism technology, which uses sharp angles to reflect light. Originally intended for high-visibility clothing, it can be used on any garment to add an exciting and unique dimension to apparel decorating that cannot be duplicated using other materials.
Twill USA offers 2 types Reflective Materials: HTV Vinyl (uses glass beads and prism technology) and 3M™ Reflective Fabric (uses glass beads). All of our Reflective Materials are designed for use with plotter cutters, desktop (craft) cutters, or on laser cutters to create custom patterns that are sure to dazzle. We are a leading distributor of Reflective Materials — commonly referred to as 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective — which competes against Stahls’ CAD-CUT® Reflective HTV and Siser’s ReflectAll™ Heat Transfer Vinyl in the marketplace. Available in Silver only. Sold in 1 yard increments up to 50 yards.
Silver Reflective HTV Vinyl
Reflective Heat Transfer Vinyl uses prism technology to achieve retro-reflectivity. Prisms are more efficient than glass beads, so the reflected light is brighter. This material is somewhat thinner and more flexible than fabric. Available in Silver only and sold in rolls by the yard. Easy to cut. Easy to weed. Easy to apply. NOTE: Reflective HTV Vinyl should be heat-pressed, not sewn onto garments.
Silver 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. Available in Silver only and sold in rolls by the yard. Easy to cut. Easy to weed. Easy to apply. 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.
