Introduction of reflective material processing technology

 According to the principles of retroreflection and the structure of retroreflective fabrics, it can be seen that retroreflective fabrics consist of base fabrics, reflective layers, chemical resins, glass beads, and the like. What kind of processing technology to use a variety of materials together to ensure that its reflective fabric has the same performance as other textiles, is the research and development and manufacturers are most concerned about. From the structure of the retroreflective fabric alone, it can be seen that the materials of the reflective layer, the resin, and the glass microspheres are on the base fabric. Therefore, the processing method using a combination of coating, compounding, hot pressing and other processing technologies is Imperative. For such a multi-layer material composite product, the key is to ensure that the incident light emitted from the light source is refracted and reflected by the retroreflective element, and most of them return to the direction and position of the light source to play a striking role. All optical paths should be unobstructed during production to ensure that the beads are uniformly distributed on the surface of the fabric in a single layer, and wear resistance, washability, and waterproofness are required according to the characteristics of the product. The research and development of reflective materials has a certain degree of difficulty. It involves many disciplines, including textile, chemical, electromechanical, light industry, optics, etc. The processing process is long, and the equipment and process have great uncertainty. Can only be based on its principle of retrospective research. In addition to the selection of suitable raw materials such as fabrics, slurries, beads, etc. during the processing, coating and beading equipment and a series of processing techniques are also extremely important. According to the application of beads, it can be divided into three processing methods:
