Bright and reflective, this Reflective Tape is the same material as used on fire-fighters clothing, security personal clothing airport workers, police, highway agency clothing etc. Countless numbers of microscopic glass beads allow it to reflect 1500 times more light than white fabric, and retain 50% of its reflectivity at an extreme angle of 40 degrees from the light source. The high quality of this material and its infinite usefulness is the reason why it used on so many products that require light reflective properties.
Florescent materials convert invisible UV light into visible light therefore making objects stand out. Reflective materials use a technology known as retro reflection. Retro reflection occurs when light rays are returned in the direction from which they came (e.g. light from a car headlights would reflect back from the Reflective Materials making the strips shine brightly in the dark).
