New Reflective Rolls Goods Brochure Highlights 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Materials

New Reflective Material, 5807 Custom Cuttable Transfer Film, Series 5500 Comfort Trim includes ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 compliance.

Metlon Corporation released, today, their new four-page, full color Reflective Roll Goods brochure, which focuses on enhancing nighttime visibility and safety. It features 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material’s latest offerings: 5807 Custom Cuttable Transfer Film and Series 5500 Comfort Trim. Both are examples of ANSI/ISEA 107-2004 Compliant Reflective Material, and they are photographed in day/night contrast, with separate close-up and insert photographs to clarify the features and applications of each. Photographs highlight the diverse applications for which Metlon supplies reflective material, where Metlon first applied reflective material to apparel and accessories typical of consumer and industrial applications such as: children’s and adults’ jackets, sportswear, and backpack as well as corporate and construction uniforms. Additional photographic examples of various-width rolled good materials, available in-stock for immediate delivery, are shown and are applied to a vest and shirt.

The brochure also references the company’s engineering experience and ability to custom slit material to special widths and lengths, which is another facet of Metlon’s capabilities that offers customers convenience and cost-savings. Coils shown with a variety of put-ups, including traverse wound spools, expedite the manufacturer’s use of the reflective materials.

The 5807 Custom Cuttable Transfer Film creates new opportunities for manufacturers to provide high quality customized apparel and accessories for a wide variety of their corporate and industrial clients.

Illustrating the “How-To” customization feature to manufacturers, small retailers, and various customers, Metlon created a graphic logo to be used in conjunction with a 3M-supplied photo of 5807 Custom Cuttable Transfer Film. A consumer-based photo incorporated a reflective logo Metlon created using its own plotter cutter, plus reflective trim applied to apparel and accessories.
