Heat Transfer (Heat Lamination) Guidelines

Handling Precautions

  • V-REFLEXTM Lifestyle Material - Heat Transfer Film/Tape contains an aluminum layer as part of their construction. Blemishing of this aluminum layer can occur if the PET film carrier is removed and the front surface of the product has direct contact from hands during application and is then exposed to hot and humid conditions, greater than 26.7 oC (80 oF) and greater than 70% relative humidity, for a period of weeks. These blemishes do not affect performance of the product.
  • V-REFLEXTM Lifestyle Material - Heat Transfer Film/Tape may not be compatible with some polyvinyl chloride (PVC, vinyl) film, especially those containing phosphate plasticizers. It is possible that some plasticizers may be able to migrate into the reflective material, making the reflective surface soft and sticky. We recommend that substrates always tested prior to production to ensure that they meet your specific needs.

Prepare For Heat Transfer (Heat Lamination)

V-REFLEXTM Lifestyle Material -  Heat Transfer Film/Tapes are recommended to follow below info to set up the settings on laminating equipments

  • Lamination Temperature: 130-150 oC
  • Dwell Time (seconds): 10-20
  • Line Pressure Firm: 30-40 psi

Above settings should be adjusted according to the pre-production testing results.

We also recommend below operations for mass production.

  1. Work on a flat surface where uniform heat and pressure can be applied. Avoid applying film over seams and stitches.
  2. Remove adhesive side line (if that product has one), exposing dry adhesive. Do not remove reflective side liner.
  3. Place V-REFLEXTM Lifestyle Material - Heat Transfer Reflective Film on substrate with the adhesive side down and apply heat and pressure as described in the table below. Place a non-stick slip sheet between the platen and laminating surface to prevent any excess adhesive transfer contamination.
  4. Allow application to cool to room temperature before removing the liner covering the reflective side (if that product has one). Place application on a flat surface and remove the liner by lifting one corner and pulling (about 45o angle) in a continuous, smooth manner.

Additional Precautions for Heat Lamination

  • 1- Do not exceed lamination temperature listed above as the PET liner may be melt and become difficult to remove. If high temperatures are required for bond durability, follow lamination steps 1-3 using recommended temperature, remove PET liner, and then laminate again at the higher temperature (using a non-stick slip sheet to protect reflective surface).
  • 2- The lamination temperature, time and pressure listed above should be used as a guide. Each substrate and reflective film combination should be tested to determine the best set of conditions that will meet customer requirements.
  • 3- Other lamination method, such as roll to roll, heat fusing and HF welding may also be used. The proper temperature, time and pressure conditions must be tested for each fabric to assure adequate adhesion and physical performance.
  • 4- Many fabric can be used as lamination substrate; however, some substrate such as nylons and fabrics treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish are difficult to adhere to.

Home Wash (Domestic Laundry) Guidelines

A colored clothing wash program without pre-wash should be used. Follow below recommendation could maintain the duability of retro-reflective to its maxium lifespan.


  1. Detergent: Brand powdered household detergents should be used.
    • Refer to the detergent manufacturer's recommendations for dosage in areas of high water hardness and for various degrees of garment soiling.
  2. Wash temperature range: 15°C to 40°C
    • Some items could be extended to be home-washed with a wider range of washing temperature than above.
    • Some items could be applicable to wash temperature ranging from 0°C to 90°C for those garment requiring harsher cleaning. Read the physical performance of each reflective tape for the details.
  3. Max. Wash time at highest wash temperature: 10 minutes
  4. Max. Program time: 15 minutes
  5. Use of temperatures lower than 60°C will increase the lifetime of the reflective material.
  6. Actual lifetime will be dependent upon the detergent system and list dosage level.
  7. Load factor higher than 65% might lead to enhanced abrasion of the retro-reflective material

Drying Conditions

Tumble Dry: Tumble drying should be performed in a commercially available household dryer

Air Drying: Line drying is recommended where possible.

Hang-Up Drying: on line or rack

Tumble drying and tunnel/air drying are both recommended and applicable to this series of retro-reflective tape. Follow below recommendation will prolong the durability of product.

    • Using the medium dry setting.
    • Exhaust temperature should not exceed 90°C.
    • Do not overdry. 

Care and Maintenance Instructions

Care and Maintenance Instructions 

Washing/cleaning conditions harsher than those recommended below could significantly diminish the brilliance of the retro-reflective performance and shorten the product's lifetime. Therefore, the instructions must be strictly followed.

  • No pre-soaking. 
  • No application of high alkaline products (e.g. heavy duty products or stain removal products).
  • No application of solvent detergents or micro-emulsions.
  • No additional bleaches.
  • Do not over-dry. Reflective material temperature should not exceed 90°C at any time during drying.

Special Cleaning Instructions  

  • For application on rainwear, a regular fluorocarbon treatment of the garment is recommended.
  • Chemical splashes should be removed with a soft, dry cloth. Cleaning the garment the same day is recommended.
  • Splashes of strong acids or alkalis should immediately be neutralized with plenty of water.
  • Contamination with toxic or poisonous substances or biocontamination will require the application of a specific decontamination process.
  • Application of high alkaline products, high pH-products, bleaches etc. is not recommended.
  • Do not over-dry. The temperature of the material should not exceed 90°C at any time during drying.

Don't Use Additional Bleach

  • No chlorine bleach.
  • No bleaches on oxygenic basis (e.g. sodium perborate bleaches).
  • Do not store a wash batch even in a low concentration of bleach

V-REFLEXTM Lifestyle Material - Heat Transfer Film/Tape should be properly transferred to clothing, and bonding with clothing strongly. Improperly application handling may result in heat transfer film/tape falling away from clothing during daily use or cleaning procedure, especially in industrial wash cleaning operation.

We recommend that all customers, in accordance with good manufacturing practices, establish an ongoing quality system which includes maintaining lot/roll identification throughout the garment production process. Customer should also store input materials and final products in accordance with manufacturer  ecommendations, as well as implement continuous testing throughout their production and on their finished garments that reflects their garment needs.

For lamination operations, customers should periodically check their equipment to ensure that the temperature set point matches the platen or roll temperature and that the temperature is uniform across the lamination area.

Other Important Information

Product Storage

Store in a cool, dry area and use within 1 year of receipt.

Rolls should be stored in their original cartons, whilst partially used rolls should be returned to their carton or suspended horizontally from the core via a rod or pipe.

Cut sheets should be stored flat.
