As a result, there will be less fabric waste for customers who want to make whole reflective garments. Especially when working in summer weather, workers must wear gloves when manufacturing reflective garments. Because the reflective fabric is composed of a backing fabric, glass beads, glue, and aluminum coating. Sweating from the hands will affect the aluminum coating, which will ultimately affect the surface. Below is the answers to the questions regarding Holographic reflective fabric.

The spandex or Lycra that is the basis for hologratic reflective fabric is easy to wash.This manufacturer makes holographic reflective fabric using a base spandex fabric in a very innovative way. The shiny or metallic surface of plain spandex is first printed with a glossy or metallic pattern. In its current state, the fabric is known as surface-printed spandex, which can be easy to hand wash.
On top of the original layer of shiny or metallic colors is a layer of holographic effects. Reflective holograms will form on the fabric surface after this process. The lights reflect off the surface and create 3D effects. Despite the challenges of washing and laundering the fabric, the resultant fabric is difficult to keep clean. Even so, it is one of the finest fabrics that can be added to costumes or dancewear.
