Frequently asked questions
Does Safe Reflections only sell 3M™ Scotchlite™ based products?
No. Although we usually lead with 3M™ Scotchlite™ based products the reflective material chosen will always be based on our customer’s performance requirements and price point. We procure and use reflective material from leading suppliers all over the globe.
How can I be assured that Safe Reflections products are cost competitive vs. Asia sourced options?
Safe Reflections practices technologies that are proprietary and usually not available from other suppliers. In many cases these technologies provide cost advantages greater than any cost premiums that might be associated with US production. The large majority of all reflective material used world-wide is produced in the US at the 3M™ Scotchlite™ Brownwood, Texas facility so regardless of where the material is used it usually includes freight cost from the US. In many cases our freight cost is greatly reduced when we ship finished products vs. full rolls of reflective.
What makes Safe Reflections’ Brilliant™ Color Reflective so unique?
Our US patented Brilliant™ Color Reflective is the only high-brightness (over 300 RA) and wash-durable (25 to 50 home wash with minimal color change) available. It is also the only color reflective available in roll form world-wide.
From what reflective input materials can Safe Reflections produce Brilliant™ Color Reflective?
Brilliant™ Color Reflective can be produced from any glass bead retro-reflective input material. We colorize 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective material as well as other reflective material sourced worldwide.
Why is Brilliant™ Color Reflective not available in true Black and White?
A small amount, about 30%, of the surface of all Brilliant™ Color Reflective materials is silver to allow the mirrored surface on the back of the glass beads to be visible. As a result even if we color the product with black or white when you add silver to these colors you get different shades of dark and light gray.
How is Safe Reflections different than other reflective converters?
Safe Reflections is not a typical reflective convertor, we are a technology based company. We combine our three proprietary technologies and over 20 years of experience to produce solutions that meet the expectations and durability requirements of our customers.
