Retro-reflective fabric offering advanced breathability

Creato il: 05-07-2024

Featuring fine reflective lines, AIR STRIPE is the latest technology to come out of JRC-REFLEX’s R&D lab in Bergamo, Italy. We created this new reference in response to long-standing requests from our activewear brand customers in running and cycling who were looking for a retro-reflective fabric offering advanced breathability

By combining safety in low light conditions, elasticity and breathability, AIR STRIPE fills a gap in the market for retro-reflective fabrics. Tests have shown that the new AIR STRIPE reference has an evaporative resistance, or Ret, a common measure of air passage or breathability, of 5. This is considerably better than standard waterproof-breathable laminates, which are in the order of 13 Ret. The superior breathability also significantly speeds up the drying times.

To address the specific demands of bags and packs, JRC-REFLEX has been working on improving the durability its light-reflecting materials with a new reference in which the light-reflecting coating is applied to a wool stretch fabric whose abrasion resistance has been improved. Compared to the French-Italian company’s former range, this new reference is much more flexible, lighter and softer to the touch, properties that will enhance the performance and comfort of Fashion garment.
