The retro-reflective specialist has launched a new production process which adds embossed motifs to its highly popular fabrics and trimmings and will display at Performance days.

The new 3D effect embossed motifs, applied on the company’s most popular references, silver grey and super black, now come in four styles: crushed, snake, dots and optic negative-positive checks.

Adding a new twist to the high impact retro-reflectivity, without sacrificing the comfort of elasticity, these references are available in full-width stretch fabrics (140 cm) and trimming. The new patterns target performance sportswear and casual wear as well as fashion brands.

In response to demand for eco-conscious materials, JRC-REFLEX/IBR has also developed a stretch retroreflective fabric made on a recycled polyester ground. Major sports brands have announced their intention to shift from conventional to recycled polyester by 2015.

JRC-Reflex continues to invest in the research and development of new items capable of providing both all-around safety and all-around comfort.
