3M creates new reflective material for workwear

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.

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.

The new Diamond Mesh Trim will be a feature at the A+A 2017 show in Dusseldorf, Germany.
