US-based innovative solution provider, 3M Scotchlite, has unveiled a new high-performance reflective material ‘C790 Carbon Black Stretch Transfer Filmfor activewear. This material is said to combine seven patented attributes to deliver design flexibility, visibility and product performance for active pursuits and dynamic lifestyles.

According to the company’s report this rich, deep black-coloured material (when viewed in daylight) is patented. However, when illuminated at night, the material is said to deliver vibrant reflective brightness. The vivid brightness of the material is durable through wear, stretch or washing. Featuring a low-temp bonding capability, it can also adhere to a wide variety of fabrics without affecting design or quality.

3M spokesperson, Ryan Gallagher, commented, “Designers of active apparel no longer have to compromise when they want a high performing, on-trend reflective material,” adding, “C790 carbon black transfer film is the deepest black and highest stretch reflective material we’ve ever made, meaning designers now have a single material that can blend in, stand out and move with any active pursuit or dynamic lifestyle.”

Unlike other colourized-silver reflective materials that apply a thin layer of colour on top of glass beads, 3M’s proprietary carbon black technology makes the colour inherent to the material’s construction. This is claimed to create a discreet, colour-fast material with initial brightness averaging 300 RA strike. Carbon black technology also helps provide off-angle brightness for increased visibility in low-light conditions.

3M says C790 carbon black transfer film can accommodate a wide range of applications for gear worn for training, running, cycling, motorsports and other activewear pursuits.
