First of all, let me introduce you, reflective raincoats generally refer to raincoats that can play a reflective warning effect at night. Rain clothes are composed of two parts: reflective material (reflective tape or lattice tape) and base fabric. When there is light at night, the reflective material will reflect part of the light back to warn those who see the reflected light. will glow.
Second, according to the national and industry models, manufacturers of reflective clothing must strictly control the design, material selection, sewing and subsequent processing of reflective raincoats, rather than indirectly sew a piece of clothing on ordinary clothing or As simple as a few reflective tapes.
Open the shopping website and search for reflective raincoats. There are more than 100 pages and thousands of pieces. So how do we find high-quality reflective raincoats from the vast sea of raincoats?
Indeed, in terms of reference items such as the reflective interval of the reflective tape, the number of washings, and the width of the reflective tape, the national model has clear rules.
Someone asked again, can’t you wear a reflective raincoat that doesn’t fit the model? I see that some 10 yuan or 8 yuan reflective raincoats are also very reflective, aren’t they? Yes, it does not mean that reflective raincoats that do not conform to the model cannot be worn, but the reflective raincoats that are not designed and produced according to the model are more or less certain problems and safety hazards.
For example, the national model GB20653 has a reflective interval of 330m. You can wear rain clothes with a reflective interval of only 100m. However, when you encounter a critical situation, your response time to others will be much less. The risk has also increased a lot. When it comes to life, even a second is very important!
Also, I need to clarify a little bit. The “phosphor” on the reflective tape is actually a tool called glass beads, and the reflection at night depends on their refraction and reflection of light.
For some reflective raincoats, the reflective interval that can be reached is 330m, but due to insufficient processing, glass beads are easy to fall off. This has led to some reflective raincoats not reflecting after frequent washing.
Therefore, when we buy a reflective raincoat, we need to ask the store clearly what the reflective interval of the reflective raincoat is and how many times it can be washed. Of course, the larger the reflective interval, the better, and the more times it can be washed, the better.
