3M creates new reflective material for workwear with Diamond Mesh Technology
3M have announced a new high-visibility, low-waste 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material, designed specifically for workers.
Reflective safety gear requires a combination of comfort, compliance and visibility. To help meet this need, 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material has launched the 5410 Diamond Mesh Trim, a leap in performance and design.
The new reflective material delivers bright, compliant visibility paired with breathability and durability. It was developed with a patent-pending cut-and-spread technology, which eliminates material waste created during the interstitial cutting and weeding process. This results in a more resource-efficient, lower-cost trim.
“Today’s marketplace often demands that a premium be paid for innovative products with a sustainability story,” said Ryan Gallagher, 3M. “The 5410 Diamond Mesh Trim disrupts that trend by providing a high-value, high-visibility and low-material waste trim to brands and workers around the world.”
The new product was designed to help meet customer’s performance needs, but also caters to financial and sustainability-focused needs.
