Reflective textile stickers: Waves


The perfect solution for textiles

If you are looking for highly reflective stickers for textile surfaces such as backpacks, satchels, jackets or shoes, our "Textile Stickies" are the right choice. The unique material composition makes the product a universal all-rounder for all areas of application.

The highly reflective surface has reflection values that are in the high-visibility range and are therefore visible up to a distance of 250 m. The flexible fabric structure ensures that it easily adapts to soft material surfaces and moves with you. The patented adhesive film not only adheres to smooth, but also to rough textile surface material and is therefore equally suitable for outdoor clothing and accessories.

Fluid play of shapes

If you don't like angular designs, you might like the "Waves". If you place the individual shapes with the smooth edge on optical breaks such as seams or zippers, beautifully integrated designs are created. You can also place the elements next to each other and create waves of any length. 

What we also like about designs like the "Waves", but also the "Bricks" and "Isometric": Because all the shapes on the sheet are lined up seamlessly and therefore there are no gaps that could be thrown away as "negative" in manual processing land, there is almost no waste that ends up as a waste product in the garbage. Overall, we have less work when weeding and you get a maximum number of stickers per area.

Material

Our textile stickers consist of three layers. The reflective upper 3M Scotchlite layer consists of tiny glass beads, which in turn are processed on a flexible fabric. This in turn is laminated with a PSA adhesive film, which adheres strongly to both textile and hard surfaces.

The degree of retroreflection is very high and is at least 300 cd/lux-m2. This means that the stickers are clearly visible from a long distance.

The product is certified according to the Oeko-Tex 100 standard.

The stickers withstand high temperature fluctuations (-40°C - 90°C) and are weather and solvent resistant.

The thickness is around 0.2mm.

Application

The textile stickers are simply stuck on. Ironing or sewing is not necessary. Thanks to the combination of a special adhesive film and a flexible basic structure, they adhere to both textile and solid surfaces and are therefore a universally applicable solution for better visibility in the dark.

The surface to be glued should be dry and free of grease and dust. Remove the sticker from the backing paper and then press firmly. For good adhesion it is also recommended to apply the stickers at a minimum of 18°C.
The stickers can be easily removed by mechanically peeling off. Re-gluing is then no longer possible due to the reduced adhesive strength. After prolonged use, adhesive residues on the surface cannot be ruled out.

Care

Whether the stickers survive washing machine cycles depends on several factors, in particular the surface material of the clothing and the washing program. Coated (functional) materials (e.g. water-repellent outerwear) prevent the fabric and adhesive from bonding optimally, which means that the stickers can fall off. Strong spinning and high heat in the dryer will also negatively affect the adhesion of the stickers.

Although a large number of washing tests with a wide variety of clothing items have shown positive results and little damage, machine washing of textiles with stickers is therefore not recommended in order to avoid possible disappointment and frustration.

Production

In contrast to our regular stickers for smooth surfaces, the raw material for our textile stickers does not come from Brandenburg, but from the other side of the Atlantic. Unfortunately, there is (still) no supplier of this special material in Europe. This is also the main reason why our textile stickers are a bit more expensive in comparison.

The further processing, however, takes place as usual in Berlin, with us, our partner institutions and inclusive workshops.

I am very pleased

I'm very, very satisfied, I can be seen better in the dark next to my jacket with reflector bits.
