What is Silver Reflective Tape and how does it work?

The silver reflective material is an innovative product from YGM that has diverse applications. The tape works on the basic principle of retroreflection. Retroreflection deals with reflecting the light back to the source with minimum scattering.
Similar to this, the silver reflective material takes in the maximum amount of light and reflects it back to the source with almost equal intensity. For this, the surface of the tape is made from glass beads that collect in maximum light and fire it back.

Applying wet reflective vinyl is forbidden because it has a metallic aluminum layer that won’t capture airing capacity. So when you opt for web material, it will not allow the moisture to escape the surface. Sometimes, when you can’t bring down the temperature to a cooler degree, you need to use minimum solutions.
A great tip is that you should make every possible attempt to remove the moisture from the things using squeegee.
Notice: the applications will avoid any type of warranty for the product. The wattage solution we have used can increase the pH of the heat transferred.
Also, it can significantly affect or maybe the reacting aluminum layer that leads to corrosion and breaking down of the material. The quality of the material may be compromised on applying web solutions.

This ability to bounce back the light makes the tape fit for a number of applications such as:

  • Safety clothing
  • Self-Adhesion applications
  • Reflective signs on highways and signals
  • Fashion clothing

And many more! The use of silver reflective material is backed by its multiple varieties; the tape has around 12 varieties meant for various uses.

What should I know before ordering a silver reflective material?

As there are many types of Silver reflective tapes available as listed above, anyone can get confused about which is best for them. All of them have varying attributes that make each one unique to some use. Here are some crucial factors that need to be kept in mind while ordering a silver reflective material:

  • Application or use

The very initial thing that you have to check is for what purpose you are buying the reflective tape. There are overall 12 different types of Silver Reflective Tapes, and all of them have different applications. For instance, the silver reflective material for clothing is best for high visibility work-related clothing. The flame retardant version of the same is suitable for those who have jobs related to fire protection or electrical systems.

The iron on silver tape and segmented reflective heat transfer vinyl tape is useful for hot pressing logos and graphics on fabrics without damage.

The red and silver reflective tape roll is ideal for screen printing or ink-jet printing as it is untearable. Moreover, the High intensity prismatic grade silver reflective material has high reflectivity, which makes it ideal to be used on highway signs, traffic signs, crossing signs, etc.

So, as different types have different functionalities, you need to shortlist the required one based on your preference.

  • Washability

As the silver reflective material has a huge application in clothing, it is necessary to check if it is washable or not. Fortunately, if you are ordering any of the silver reflective tapes for yourself, you can fearlessly wash them. However, you need to take care while washing.

There are three ways of washing the silver reflective tape for clothing, namely:

  1. Home washing
  2. Industrial washing
  3. Dry cleaning

You can wash thesilver reflective tape for clothing for up to 50 cycles.

  • Reflectivity

Reflectivity is also one of the prime factors that you need to analyse in the type of silver reflective material you order. The reflectivity of almost all types of tapes is different, which is one of the reasons the tapes have different applications.

For instance, fashion clothing does not need much reflectivity; hence, you can order the red and silver or yellow and silver reflective material as they have the lowest reflectivity of >250cd/lx/m².

For highly reflective clothing, it is best to go for silver, flame retardant silver or elastic silver reflective material; they have the maximum reflectivity of over 400-500cd/lx/m².

  • Backing Fabric

The backing fabric of the tape is responsible for providing it extra utility apart from the reflectivity.

Fo instance, most of the tapes are made from fabrics like:

  1. Cotton:It is flame retardant, ideal for work-related clothes.
  2. Aramid:The fabric is used in flame retardant silver reflective material, which has the best heat resistance.
  3. Spandex: The blend of cotton and Spandex is used in elastic clothes; the elasticity is provided by Spandex.
  4. PES: The fabric can be easily laser cut or knife cut, thus fit for making logos and graphics. It can also be hot-pressed onto woven or cotton.
  5. PVC: The PVC fabric is the untearable fabric that is best in terms of longevity.

These fabrics and their utility need to be kept in mind to order the best tape for yourself. Fortunately, you can send an enquiry for each of these tapes before buying.

  • Service Life

As some of these reflective tapes are also used for sticking advertisements and signboards, it is necessary to check their service life. The service life of the self-adhesive tapes should be higher, and fortunately, it is.

The service life of self-adhesive tapes lies between 3 to 10 years. The minimum service life is of Red and silver reflective material (3 years), and the maximum service life is of High intensity prismatic grade silver reflective material (10 years).

  • Size

Based on the type of application, the size of the tape will also vary. For instance, you may need a wider tape for cutting out logos and graphics and narrow tapes for using on fashion clothing.

The silver reflective material is available in three different categories, namely,

  1. Reflective tape for clothing
  2. Reflective heat transfer vinyl
  3. Self-adhesive reflective tape

All of these tapes have different sizes that vary from 1cm to over 1m in width and up to 50m in terms of length. As the demands of all the users will be different, it is necessary to check the size of the tape before you order one.

  • Unique features

Apart from all the above-mentioned features, the Silver reflective tapes have some add-on hidden features that make them unique and dedicated for some special use. Here are some add-ons features provided by some of the Silver reflective tapes:

Tear resistance: As the silver reflective material has a wide range of outdoor applications, it is necessary for it to have some sort of resistance to wear and tear. Fortunately, some of the tapes made by YGM have an untearable design.

Tapes like red and silver polyester and high intensity grade silver-tape have a tear-resistant design that makes them fit for use on advertisements, traffic signs, cars, ships and many other outdoor applications.

Heat resistance: Another critical feature that one or two variants of the silver reflective tapes have is heat resistance. The characteristic of heat resistance or flame retardancy makes the tape fit for use on safety clothes.

For instance, those who have jobs in the fire department or electrical systems can use this clothing to keep themselves safe from any sort of fire mishap.

The tapes that have the feature of flame retardancy are flame retardant silver reflective material for clothing and elastic silver reflective material.

Stretchable: There is only one tape that offers this utility, and it is the Elastic silver reflective material. The property of elasticity makes the tape more stretchable and enhances its performance. It can be used in making elastic clothing.

All these features form the crux of the silver reflective material and its types. Hence, it is necessary to keep all of these in mind. If you are ordering in bulk, make sure you order fewer tapes first to test their quality. However, all the products at YGM are made with the utmost quality material.

What are the main materials used by YGM to create silver reflective tapes?

As you are well versed with the things that you need to consider while ordering the best silver reflective material, it is also necessary to know if these tapes perform the way they are shown. We at YGM take absolute care of every aspect while making these products.

The materials used in our tapes vary based on the use of the tape. Based on the use, they can be categorized as:

  • Silver reflective tape for clothing

The silver reflective tape for clothing is used for making safety clothing related to high-visibility work. Here are the components used in it:

The reflective principle of silver reflective tape 2

Glass Beads: The top layer of the silver reflective tape for clothing consists of glass beads that have a significantly high refractive index. As the beads of the top layer have a high refractive index, the speed of light while passing through them is low, which makes the maximum amount of light change its direction.

This ultimately leads to the reflection of light after striking the inside of the glass beads.

Aluminium Reflector: The aluminium reflector layer lies below the glass beads on the tape. It reflects the light and is protected by the adhesive layer that lies below it.

Adhesive Agent: The adhesive layer of the silver reflective material for clothing is used to keep the glass beads of the tape in place. Moreover, the adhesive layer of the tape also protects the aluminium reflector layer of the tape.

Backing Fabric: The final layer is the backing fabric that supports all the layers above it. This is the layer that provides strength to the tape.

  • self-adhesive reflective tape

This is another category of silver reflective material that is used for putting ads, signboards, traffic signals, trucks, etc. The best thing about this is the super high adhesion. They do not tear off easily and have longer life as compared to their counterparts.

The sole reason behind the remarkable performance of this tape is its structure. The self-adhesive reflective tape are of two types, namely,

  1. Lens embedding type
  2. Airproof capsule type
The craftsmanship of Silver Reflective Tape

There are various materials used for making the tape. However, there is a slight difference between the structures of these tapes. Here is a list of materials used in making the tapes.

Lens Embedding Type: The tape has its structure in the following sequence,

Surface protected layer > Resin layer > Micro glass beads > Focusing layer > Reflective layer > Glue layer > Lining paper

Airproof Capsule Type: The Airproof Capsule Type tape has the following structure,

Surface protected layer > Air layer > Micro glass beads > Reflective layer > Glass beads planted layer > Glue layer > Lining paper

What are the uses of Silver Reflective Tape?

The Silver Reflective Tape is an awesome product made by YGM. Each of the silver reflective materials is made to provide unique functionality and use. Here are some of the best uses of the silver reflective material:
