Our top quality reflective tape 6005B has been tested for industrial laundry and confirmed its high performance excelling EN 20471 requirements even after multiple industrial washes.

Last year, we have been asked by our clients for the reflective tape that would resist harsh conditions of ISO 15797 industrial laundry. Now we can offer you another sign of excellence for XM SilverLine – the EN 20471 certificate for our XM-6005B top grade reflective tape.

As we did before, In January, 2016 all the tests were conducted in Aitex laboratory in Spain.

XM-6005B has passed all these tests with a top performance:

  • New material – PASS,
  • The reflection after 5’000 abrasion cycles achieved 548.8 cd/lx-m2 (comparing with ≥100 cd/lx of the EN 20471 norm) – PASS,
  • After 7’500 Flexion cycles523.6 cd/lx-m2 – PASS,
  • Folding at cold temeratures at -20°C – PASS,
  • After rainfall – PASS,
  • After 40 industrial washing cycles at 70°C – PASS,
  • After 30 dry cleaning cycles – PASS,

After these harsh tests the reflective tape easily complied with EN 20471 requirement (to have a retroreflective photometric performance R more than 100 cd/lx-m2.)

The test results have confirmed the extra quality and durability of XM SilverLine reflective tape, which is recommended to use in all kinds of High Visibilty clothing, such as HiVis vests for contract workers, HiVis jackets and trousers for road or airport workers, HiVis garments for police and other workwear used for increased visibility.
