What Is A Reflective Clothing Made Of? Is It Harmful To The Body?

- Jan 03, 2019 -

For example, many people are asking this question on the Internet recently. So, is reflective clothing harmful to the body?

To answer this question, we have to start with the composition of reflective clothing.

Reflective clothing is harmless to the body

(Reflective clothes with reflective strips)

Reflective clothing is composed of reflective materials (reflective bands or lattice bands) and base fabrics. At night, when there is light shining, reflective materials will reflect part of the light back to warn people who see the reflected light, mostly used in traffic pipes, sanitation, oil and other groups that need outdoor work.

Reflective material is a kind of material called glass beads, which is bonded on some substrates.

Reflective coatings may be harmful to health

(Reflective clothing made of reflective paint)

Another kind of "fashionable reflective clothing" is to brush reflective paint on the surface of ordinary clothing. Reflective paint is a new type of reflective paint, which is based on acrylic resin and mixed with a certain proportion of directional reflective materials in solvent. The principle of reflection is to reflect the irradiated light back to people's sight through reflective glass beads, forming a reflective effect, which is more obvious at night.

Therefore, to discuss whether reflective clothing (with reflective strips) is harmful to the body, in the final analysis, is to discuss whether glass beads are harmful to the body (the reflective clothing with reflective paint, because of the paint ingredients, we do not make a conclusion here).

(Composition of reflective bands)

Professional parameters of glass beads:

1. Chemical composition: SiO 2 > 67%, CaO > 8.0% MgO > 2.5% Na2O < 14%, Al2O3 0.5-2.0 Fe2O3 > 0.15 and other 2.0%.

2. Specific gravity: 2.4-2.6 g/cubic centimeter

Appearance: Clean, round, transparent glass without impurities

3. The magnetic particle does not exceed 0.1% of the weight of the product.

4. The bubble content in glass beads is less than 10%.

5. It does not contain any silicone resins.

Do not understand? It doesn't matter. You just need to know that it won't touch and is harmful to the human body. Of course, if you want to eat it, I don't know if it's harmful to your health.
