Reflective fabric: washing instruction difference

【Clicks:1728】 【Source:http://www.chinastars.org.cn/index.html

        In the previous article, we discussed about the difference of reflective coefficient among different reflective fabrics due to raw material glass beads and production procedures. If anyone asks what else differs because of these, the washing instruction will be remembered.

        One salesman asked his client how many times you want your safety vest to be washed, and the client replied 10,000 times. This is a common dialogue though experts of reflective fabric will regard this as a joke. And to avoid this kind of embarrass, you need to know more about the washing instruction between different kinds of reflective fabrics.

        Due to the restriction caused by production procedures, washing time of reflective fabric can in no way be same as that of ordinary fabrics. Reflective fabrics with the best washing property can be washed up to more than 100 times; this is the highest washing times all over the world. Chinastars developed this technology several years ago by using the self-developed adhesives. So due to this limitation, to maintain its reflectivity, you need to reduce washing times.

        You can either choose the high reflective fabric or silver reflective fabric to meet certain washing requirements. For domestic washing, the high reflective fabric can be washed up to more than 25 times. And the silver reflective fabric can be washed up to more than 100 times.

        Chinastars also developed the silver reflective fabric suitable for industrial wash using self-developed raw materials. Due to some special occupation, users may need to wash their safety vest or hi vis jackets with highly alkaline solvent, this surely is high-demanding towards reflective fabric. Chinastars provides silver reflective fabric which can be industrial washed up to more than 50 times.
