Retroreflective Yarn


Retro reflective technology can be obtained with the use of two types of raw materials:

  • glass beads
  • micro prisms

Our reflective yarns are manufactured with films having glass beads incorporated.

The role of the glass beads is to reflect the incoming light to its original light source. This means that the glass beads act as spherical lenses and return the incoming light to the light source when the reflective layer is set in its focus point.
