The construction of fluorescent fabric consists of two layers: a layer composed of a cross-linked resin containing a fluorescent pigment 32 and a layer made of a non-woven web material. The two layers are bonded together, with the concentration of fluorescent pigment 32 being higher on the outer surface than on the inner surface. This gives fluorescent fabric 16 a two-sided coloring effect, where the exposed side receives more pigment than the other side.
The construction of the textile plays a crucial role in determining the durability of the fluorescent fabric. High visibility fabric 16 is manufactured to be extremely durable and colorfast, as measured by the International Standards Organization. It has been shown to retain more than 50% of its original spectral reflected radiance even after being subjected to 10 domestic washing cycles. To test the fabric, we use a top-loading washing machine, which is set on regular action, medium load, and a ten-minute wash cycle at 45deg C. In addition to the fabric, we use a ballast of ten 100% cotton towels to determine the fiber's color fastness.
The top plan view of the product produced from the material with the fluorescent layer is shown in FIG. 6. The non-woven web material is covered with a fluorescent layer, and a safety vest is made from it. The vest comprises a body section, which comprises an upper torso section 100 and a waist portion 104. The fluorescent layer is selectively applied to the outer surface of the vest. The fluorescent layer helps to enhance visibility of the wearer.
Another high visibility fabric is the ANSI Class 2 safety vest. The reflective fabric with a high visibility orange and red color. It has 2 horizontal and two vertical HD grey reflective stripes that help the wearer become highly visible in dark conditions. The jacket is designed with a zip closure for added safety. There are many advantages of fluorescent fabric over other fabrics, as these materials are more breathable and resistant to abrasion.
The high-density web fabric with the fluorescent pigment presents storage and weight problems. It also has low durability during washing cycles. Furthermore, color transfer is considerable, which is detrimental in high-visibility warning garments. This can affect the wearer's undergarments. These materials are also more expensive than non-fluorescent garments. If you're looking for fluorescent fabric for your next garment, take a look at the above-mentioned advantages.
Fluorescent fabrics can be useful in many situations. The ability to reflect light is useful in a variety of situations, such as safety. For this reason, fluorescent fabric is used extensively in bike jerseys, swimsuits, and all kinds of sportswear. However, it is crucial to ensure the quality of the fluorescent fabric. Many dye factories are not well-equipped to produce fluorescent fabric. As a result, the end product may not be satisfactory
