Reflective tape XM-6007C Pro has passed 100×60°C washes

 

In September 2019 our new segmented reflective tape XM-6007C Pro has passed certified to EN 20471 in SATRA Laboratory (UK).
This is the first silver reflective tape (non-FR!) to confirm resistance to 100 domestic wash at 60°C.

XM-6007C Pro t is the improved version of XM-6007C reflective tape. Reflective tape XM-6007C Pro is designed for better flexibility of HiVis clothing. The tape is segmented and it allows to the wearer’s body more comfort and breathability.

This reflective tape is especially useful when applied to soft-shell kind of jackets or pants. As soft-shell fabric stretching, XM-6007C Pro tape is easily stretching along with the fabric. The tape can be applied by Heat Transfer to EN 20471 vests, jackets, pants and increases the visibility of workers.

All the following tests has been passed, what confirms the high quality of reflective tape XM-6007C Pro:

  • 7500 Flexion cycles – PASS (R=320 cd/lxm2),
  • 5000 Abrasion cycles – PASS (R=293 cd/lxm2),
  • Folding at cold temperatures at -20°C – PASS (R=275 cd/lxm2),
  • Temperature variation – PASS (R=278 cd/lxm2),
  • Rainfall influence tests – PASS (R=109 cd/lxm2),
  • Washing 60°C: 100 cycles – PASS (R=109 cd/lxm2).

The last point is most important. It confirms the high quality of reflective tape. It is important that the reflective tape keeps it reflective performance even after repeat washes. XM-6007C Pro has had a reflective performance R>109 cd/lxm2 after 100 domestic washings at 60°C.

This value is above the requirement of EN 20471 norm (R>100 cd/lxm2).

The new tape will be available on our stock in Vilnius around November-December 2019.
