Kettering, UK – SEPTEMBER 02, 2020 – XM SilverLine announced today its XM-8104/10C reflective tape has been certified by the SATRA lab (UKAS) to EN 20471 and EN 469 safety standards. Liso HTS is a nickname for XM-8104/10C, where HTS states for Heat Transfer Segmented and Liso means smooth (from Spanish).
Liso HTS is a third reflective tape with a Segmented design in our product range of Heat transfer (Iron-on) tapes with Flame Resistant properties. The first two tapes are XM-8011C and XM-8010C and you can click here to find more details about them.
The certification is another milestone in our development of reflective tapes with enhanced comfort for Firefighters, Police, First responders and Industrial workers. FR-clothing with our Segmented reflective tapes allows more freedom in movements, less weight and better air-permeability.
EN469 & EN20471 certification involved 12 tests, for retro-reflective performance as new and after different test exposures like Abrasion, Flexing, Folding at cold temperatures, Rainfall, Domestic washing 20 cycles at 60C, Colour performance, Xenon light, Limited Flame spread and Heat Resistance.
It took our R&D team about 3 years to create a product like the XM-8104/10С. It was a long and technically challenging way to match all the components, including FR-additives, top-grade glass beads, epoxy resin, special glue, polyurethane, liner etc. Finally, Liso HTS has reached high level of durability and performance to PASS the certification and go to the clients.
