New stretch retroreflective fabrics from JRC-REFLEX/IBR

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.

About JRC-REFLEX/IBR

Founded in 1988 and based in Romans, France, JRC-REFLEX/IBR is a manufacturer of retroreflective and elastic fabrics and trimming. The company has developed a wide range of high performance fabrics targeting active sports apparel end-uses from first layer to outerwear. Custom-designed products make up an important portion of the company’s sales, of which 90% goes to export markets.

Since 2008, year of the merger between JRC-REFLEX and IBR, products are now manufactured in a single plant, located in Bergamo, Italy. The new factory is three times larger than the previous one and boasts state-of-the-art infrastructure and machinery, increasing production capacity and productivity twofold.

JRC-REFLEX/IBR continues to invest heavily in innovation and R&D, a key to its continuing success. Fabrics and trimming comply with major international standards (Oeko-Tex, Reach, etc.) and the company systematically develops alternative solutions before new regulation comes into application.
