Production process of silver reflective print fabric
The process involves printing spherical lens glass beads (consisting of silica, barium oxide, zinc oxide, etc.) on a fabric surface. As the incident light passes through the glass beads, it will refract, reflect, and refract back to the light source. Reflective printing color pastes are composed of reflector, cross-linking agent, and colorant (in the right amounts).
The mixture should have strong film-forming properties and high transparency. If necessary, a crosslinking agent may be added to enhance the fastness of the product. Different colors produce different reflection intensities.
In general, the darker the color of colorants is, the stronger their ability to absorb light will be, and the lower their corresponding reflectivity. Reflective printing is similar to pigment printing. After printing, it must be dried at 100-105 °C for three minutes and then baked at 150 °C for three minutes and for home washing 20 cycles under 40℃.
