High stretch retroreflective trimming with a twist
Nov '11
For the upcoming Performance Days road show in November 2011, JRC-REFLEX/IBR continues to expand its range of fancy retroreflective trimming. The latest additions combine perforations with neon backs or scalloped edging, offering a new series of novel twists to the high-tech aesthetic performance wear trimming.

Well-known for its innovative range of high performance retroreflective and elastic trimming, Romans, France-based Company JRC-REFLEX/IBR never stops trying new combinations to expand its product offering.

The newest addition to the company's Perforated trimming range infuses the added appeal of discreet colour to the high stretch light-reflecting silver taping. The elastic retroreflective silver face fabric is bonded to a Lycra-based knit that comes in five bright colours (neon pink, neon yellow, neon orange, bright red and black) and is perforated with tiny holes (measuring 1 to 2 mm).

The resulting product is available in different widths, from 140 cm to 8 mm pre-folded and welded piping trims (offering an elasticity of 50%). The Perforated range offers an ideal combination of luminosity, breathability and aesthetics with the subtle neon flash revealed by the micro-perforations.

In the same techno-design vein, JRC-REFLEX/IBR has introduced a novel graphic twist to the retroreflective pinked or cranté trimming range. The ornamental edges come in several styles: classic triangular cranté, round undulating cranté, scalloped edge as well as the latest style combining perforations and pinking with the Perforated Cranté scalloped edge trim.

Perforations, coloured backs and pinked edges are combined to create a whole new series of high-tech ornamental trimmings. This design perk has made JRC-REFLEX/IBR a must-see supplier for innovative sportswear companies. In addition to the company's traditional clientele in cycling wear, running wear and footwear, it is expanding its clientele in the field's of seamless garments and feminine active sportswear.

Specializing in retroreflective and elastic trimming, the Romans, France-based company JRC-REFLEX/IBR has developed an extensive range of high performance trimming targeting active sports apparel end-uses from first layer to outerwear.

Following the merger of JRC-REFLEX and IBR in 2008, JRC-REFLEX/IBR is relocating production to a brand new site in Northern Italy at the end of the year 2011. The new plant is three times larger than the previous one and boasts state-of-the-art infrastructure and machinery that increases the company's production capacity and productivity twofold, enabling it to better respond to existing and new clients.

Custom-designed products are an important portion of the company's business, and the new plant should provide customers with even more options. Last but not least, the factory is now closer to a major motorway.
