Reflective yarns - technology in depth

glass beads for retroreflective yarns - reflecting light beams

Retro reflective technology can be obtained with the use of two types of raw materials:
  • glass beads
  • micro prisms
Our reflective yarns are manufactured with films having all the glass beads.

The role of the Glass beads is to reflect the incoming light to its original light source. This means that the glass beads act as spherical lenses and return the incoming light to the light source when the reflecting layer is set in it's focus point.

The retro-reflective effect is obtained from the presence of thousands of glass beads that reflect the light returning it to its source. It is a security yarn that guarantees visibility at night. Ideal for
