Oakdale, Minn.-based Safe Reflections has received a U.S. patent for its Brilliant® Color Reflective line of colorized reflective materials. The technology, offering reflectivity and wash durability, makes Brilliant Color Reflective the first high-brightness color reflective for designers who want to incorporate visibility and style in the same offering, the company says. A previous patent was granted in 2014 for the manufacturing process behind Brilliant; this second patent is for the reflective product itself.
The new patent also includes a recent innovation within the Brilliant product line: Brilliant Stretch Color Reflective. The reflective material is not only colorized and with high brightness, it also has high stretch. Using Safe Reflections’ adhesive colorizing technology, Brilliant Stretch Color Reflective is designed for use on today’s performance fabrics that are driving growth in the high-end active wear market.
The company provides solutions for the occupational safety, consumer activewear, apparel and military training markets.
