What is reflective sticker vinyl?

Reflective sticker vinyl is an adhesive substance that displays reflective characteristics, enabling it to mirror light upon illumination. Its primary purpose lies in augmenting visibility and safety across diverse applications, especially in scenarios characterized by limited light or during nighttime situations.

Here’s a breakdown of the key components and characteristics of reflective sticker vinyl:

1. Base Vinyl Material

Reflective sticker vinyl starts with a base layer of vinyl, which is a versatile and durable synthetic material often used for stickers and decals.

2. Reflective Layer

The key feature of reflective sticker vinyl is the reflective layer. This layer is typically made up of tiny glass beads or prismatic elements that are embedded or coated onto the vinyl surface. These elements have the property of retroreflection, which means they bounce light back in the direction from which it came.

3. Adhesive Backing

Reflective sticker vinyl also features an adhesive backing that allows it to be easily applied to various surfaces, it is designed to securely attach the vinyl to surfaces while still allowing for repositioning during application.

How does reflective sticker vinyl work?

Reflective sticker vinyl works based on a principle called retroreflection. Retroreflection is the phenomenon by which light that hits a surface is directed back toward the source of the light.

Here’s a simplified explanation of how reflective sticker vinyl works:

1. Microscopic Beads

Reflective sticker vinyl contains tiny glass or acrylic beads that are coated with a reflective material, typically aluminum or another highly reflective substance.

2. Layered Structure

The reflective sticker vinyl consists of multiple layers. The top layer is usually a transparent protective film that covers the reflective layer.

3. Prism-like Structure

The reflective layer is located beneath the protective layer and is designed with a pattern of small indentations or microprisms.

4. Light Reflection

When light from a source (such as headlights of a vehicle) hits the surface of the reflective sticker vinyl, it enters the material.

5. Internal Reflection

Inside the reflective layer, the light encounters the microprisms. These microprisms are oriented in such a way that the light undergoes multiple internal reflections before eventually being directed back toward the light source.

6. Return of Light

The reflected light exits the vinyl and returns in the direction of the light source, making the sticker appear much brighter and more visible than it would be if it were just a regular sticker.

What are the applications of reflective sticker vinyl?

1. Road Safety Signage

Reflective sticker vinyl is commonly used for producing road signs, traffic cones, and barricades.

2.. Personal Safety Gear

Reflective sticker vinyl is integrated into personal protective equipment (PPE) such as vests, jackets, helmets, and armbands worn by pedestrians, cyclists, construction workers, and emergency responders.

3. Bicycle Accessories

Reflective sticker vinyl is applied to bicycle frames, wheels, helmets, and clothing to make cyclists more visible during nighttime rides, reducing the risk of accidents.

4. Outdoor Signage

Reflective sticker vinyl is used to create signs for businesses, outdoor events, and public spaces.

5. Promotional Materials

Reflective sticker vinyl is used in promotional products such as stickers, keychains, and promotional clothing, these items stand out in low-light settings, attracting attention to logos and messages.

6. Construction Site Safety

Reflective sticker vinyl is applied to construction equipment, barriers, and site markers to improve visibility for workers and passersby, reducing the chance of accidents.

7. Marine Safety

Reflective sticker vinyl is used on life jackets, buoys, and boat equipment to increase visibility on waterways at night.

8. Pet Accessories

Reflective sticker vinyl is integrated into pet collars, leashes, and clothing to make pets more visible during evening walks or outdoor activities.

9. Emergency Exit Signs

Reflective sticker vinyl is used to create glow-in-the-dark exit signs in buildings, ensuring that people can locate emergency exits in low-light situations.

10. Sports Equipment

Reflective sticker vinyl is applied to sports equipment like helmets, rackets, and balls to make them more visible during evening or indoor games.

11. Security and Identification

Reflective sticker vinyl is used for creating identification badges, security badges, and access cards that can be easily seen in dimly lit areas.

12. School Zone Safety

Reflective sticker vinyl is applied to school bags, uniforms, and accessories to increase the visibility of students walking to and from school, particularly during early morning or late afternoon hours.

13. Festival and Event Decor

Reflective sticker vinyl can be used to create decorative elements for festivals, parties, and events that remain attractive and safe after dark.

The photoluminescent film color: Green, Green Blue, Light Blue, Pink, Orange

Luminescent Film is made from PET and PVC materials, alkaline earth aluminate and which are activated by rare earth element.
It presents stable chemical properties.

1. Super bright glow under darkness
2. Nox-toxic and environmentally
3. Charge quickly from any light source
4. Non-electric, requires no electricity or batteries
5. Easy and quick installation
6. Very long decay when fully charged
7. No radioactive, environmental protection, high luminance.

The phtoluminescent film glow time in different time: 2 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours, 8 hours, 10 hours

The photoluminescent film can glow because it is a photoluminescent material. Photoluminescent material is a material that emits or radiates light from its surface after absorbing light energy. The photoluminescent film absorbs ambient light during daytime and glows or shines in darkness by releasing its absorbed light energy.

The photoluminescent film can be charged by any source of light, provided the light intensity is greater than 25LX. Even a standard lamp can charge it.  It glows with high light intensity in the first 2-10 hours but gradually reduces after that. The glowing intensity of a photoluminescent film is highest during its first 30 minutes of light emission.

All photoluminescent film products are self-powered.  This means when a photoluminescent film product like a safety sign is charged by ambient light, it can emit light or glow on its own.  It does not require any external light source or power to shine after it’s been charged.

Photoluminescent film’s durability is 10 years when used indoors and 3-5 years for outdoor applications.

As a leading photoluminescent film manufacturer in the world, Sino Reflective supplies high-quality and durable photoluminescent films. Our strict quality control measures, tremendous capability, and unmatched expertise in the material reflective industry make us your one-stop supplier of long-lasting photoluminescent films.
