The history of reflective film

Z.A Industry and Trade Co.,Ltd | Updated: Jan 13, 2017

Reflective film is a kind of retroreflective material which can be directly used in thin film and is the most widely used retroreflective material. In 1937, the world's first reflective film in the United States, a laboratory was born. Traffic signs is the beginning of large-scale application of reflective film history. In 1939, in the United States Minnesota road side, for the first time in the open conditions using a reflective film made of signs, since, opened a series of reflective products for traffic signs of the new period, created a new Of the traffic safety industry. This year, the United States National Standard for Traffic Signs (1939 edition of the United States "unified traffic control facilities manual", Manual of United Traffic Control Devices, 1939) provides for the use of reflective film manufacturing traffic signs.

Since then, with the development of the chemical industry, especially synthetic resins, various R & D institutions have been researching and innovating. A series of high-quality products have been developed using glass beads technology, synthetic resin technology, film technology and coating technology.

Since the 1940s, this originally manufactured reflective film, widely known as "engineering grade" reflective film, has been widely used for road traffic signs. Since then, for the personal safety of clothing and other areas of reflective film and a series of products, along with the advent of synthetic resin, the needs of social development, have been developed. Since then, with a series of materials technology and optical technology research, especially the emergence of micro-prism reflective material, so that the initial mainly used for traffic signs reflective material, began to be gradually updated, better reflective material instead.
