Metlon Corp. has announced the addition of 3M’s C790 Carbon Black reflective material to its product lineup. The company expects the material to serve active and leisure apparel applications, including training, running, cycling and motorsports.
In daylight, the reflective material appears black. 3M states its “proprietary carbon black technology makes the color inherent to the material’s construction. This creates a discreet, color-fast material with an initial brightness level averaging 300 RA. Carbon black technology also helps provide off-angle brightness for increased visibility in low-light conditions.”
The material is reported to be durable through wear, stretch and washing. It features a low-temp bonding capability and can adhere to a variety of fabrics without affecting design or quality.
The reflective material is available in 11.684 millimeters by 50 meters, or 46 inches by 54.68 yards. Metlon has the ability to slit the 46-inch-wide material to narrower width rolls, as required.
