XM-6010 (Corsica) certified to EN 20471 & EN 469


Our flame resistant reflective tape XM-6010 has been developed by XM SilverLine for maximum visability and protection of fire fighters and oil/gas workers.

In February 2014 this fr-tape has obtained the certificate EN ISO 20471:2013 and EN ISO 469:2005.

These standarts regulate quality and requirements for reflective tape and fire-resistant materials for Europian market of PPE. The tests were conducted by the SATRA Technology Centre in United Kingdom and all the tests have been successfully passed.
Among them there were tested retro-reflective performance after test exposure for the following factors (EN 20471):

  • Retro-reflective performance after 5000 Abrasion cycles – PASS,
  • Retro-reflective performance after 7500 Flexing cycles – PASS,
  • Retro-reflective performance after Folding at cold temperature at -20°C – PASS,
  • Retro-reflective performance after Temperature variation – PASS,
  • Retro-reflective performance after Influence of rainfall – PASS,
  • Retro-reflective performance after Domestic wash at 60°C (50 cycles) – PASS,
  • Retro-reflective performance after Domestic wash at 92°C (30 cycles) – PASS,
  • Retro-reflective performance after Dry cleaning, normal (5 cycles) – PASS.

This FR reflective tape also confirmed (EN 469) flammability performance level according:

  • Annex B.3.1  – PASS,
  • Annex B.3.2 – 50 washing cycles, 60°C  – PASS,
  • Annex B.3.2 – 30 washing cycles, 92°C  – PASS,
  • Annex B.3.2 – 5 washing cycles  – PASS,
  • Annex B.3.3 – 50 washing cycles, 60°C  – PASS,
  • ISO 14116:2008 Limited Flame Spread – Index 3 – PASS.

No flaming to top or side edge of the fr-tape occured, as well as no post after-flame or after-glow, which is perfectly met the norm of EN 469.
