EKO REFLECTIVE GREY

EKO Reflective Grey is a PVC free reflective textile ink. The product is designed to add retro-reflectivity to textile garments. Note: It should be used for decorative purpose only and would not have sufficient candelas for safety applications. It appears grey in color and reflects a white light when direct light is applied.

Features:

  • Easy to mix and print.
  • Very good supple print with ability to stretch and regain its original shape.
  • Passes all requirements for major brand RSL and government regulations.
  • No PVC, no lead, no phthalates, no formaldehyde, no APEO's. Passes major brand durability testing including 5 x 60 wash test.

Instructions:

STIR PRIOR TO USE! Apply directly to garment. Print with enough pressure to drive the base lower in the garment to allow the reflective beads >25% exposure for best reflectivity. If ink is not penetrating fabric properly, add up to 3% RS0002 EKO Viscosity Reducer.

Recommendation:

Do not print over an underlay or on garments that have a tight weave and or a water proof finish such as nylon jackets and umbrellas. Do not use a print flash print method as that will diminish the reflectivity greatly.
