JRC-Reflex introduces dual-tone retro-reflection

Light-reflective specialist JRC-REFLEX is presenting two new product ranges at Performance Days trade show in Munich (May 8 and 9). 

White Metal and Black Metal add a new design feature to retro-reflective materials by introducing the possibility of varying the colour they will reflect when hit with light.  

JRC-REFLEX has developed an innovative process that gives its products novel two-tonal variations. These new ranges expand on the palette of pastel colours the company launched in 2018. 

“White Metal and Black Metal create a magical effect when reflecting light, and offers brands many new design possibilities,” says company CEO Céline Cugerone. 

The company has developed a dyeing method that enables the micro-bead embedded material to reflect a different colour when a source of light is directed at it. The standard range pairs white or black with the pastel tones introduced last year, but the company can customize the colour combination to a brand’s specific needs. 

Like all JRC-REFLEX products, these two new ranges are certified OekotexClass 1. 

The White Metal range will have a white metallic aspect in its natural “non-activated” state but will reflect a predetermined colour when a light is shown on the fabric. The Black Metal range, similarly, will be black when not submitted to a source of luminosity, and will shine in a different color in headlights. The glass bead-embedded materials are available in a stretch fabric for easy integration into activewear styles. 

JRC-REFLEX is a manufacturer of high-quality retro-reflective fabrics and trimming. Founded in 1988, the company is based in Romans, France and its factory is located in Bergamo, Italy.
