Reflective clothing uses retroreflection to provide high visibility at night. Fabric is coated with special silvered inks; then prisms or beads are applied on top of these inks. When a light source shines on the fabric, the ink and the prisms reflect the light back to its source. If beads are used, the light is also concentrated, so it appears even brighter. An important characteristic of reflective clothing is that only viewers in the line of sight of the light source see the brightly illuminated fabric. In other words, the motorist whose headlights light up the person wearing reflective clothing will clearly see that person, but motorists travelling on unrelated routes will not. This means reflective clothing is defining, not distracting. Reflective clothing increases the safety of runners, pedestrians, bicyclists and road construction workers, as well as drivers, by providing motorists more time and distance to avoid collisions.

Reflective cycle clothing reflects light from its surroundings. It warns other cyclists, motorists, and people that you are there in low light or dark.



Hard hat, Work Gloves, steel toed boots, and a reflective vest.


Everyone who shares the road with motorists at night should wear reflective clothing to increase his/her safety and avoid accidents. Road construction workers, bicyclists, pedestrians and runners are the most likely people to benefit from the increased visibility that well-designed reflective clothing can offer.


Anyone who needs to visible to motorists at night to prevent accidents should wear reflective clothing. Reflective clothing helps motorists to easily distinguish people in low light and dark conditions and avoid collisions with them. This would include pedestrians, bicyclists, road construction workers and emergency personnel.


Nighttime bicyclists and pedestrians can communicate more effectively with motorists if they wear reflective clothing that highlights their movements as well as their silhouettes. Extensive research has established that well-designed reflective clothing can increase your recognition by motorists 75%-!00% compared to non-reflective or fluorescent clothing. Clear definitions of direction and rate of travel give drivers up to three times more time and distance to react to your presence and to avoid collisions. The most effective reflective clothing will feature retroreflection technology and biomotion pattern recognition; if these features are not included your nighttime visibility to motorists and your safety will be greatly diminished

A good reflective essay should tie personal experience to events in the literary work.


Wearing reflective clothes is very helpful whilst cycling as it is bright and this will cause less accidents to take place. It also helps drivers to see cycle's at night so there would be fewer accidents and injuries. Part of the surface of the garment may have retro reflective stripes. This way they become much more visible in the dark for observers near a light source, such as the driver of a car with its headlights on. The pattern of the retro reflecting parts also helps to distinguish between objects and people. VIZZIBL Reflective Clothing uses 3M Scotchlite film, the world's best reflective material. Our clothing uses retroreflection technology. When a car's headlights illuminate one of our shirts, the 3M film sends the reflection of the light right back to the driver. The reflective film on our clothing "lights up" making you visible to the driver. In low light or complete darkness, VIZZIBL clothing can make you safer. Be VIZZIBL tonight.

The disc has two layers a protective layer and a reflective layer. When you burn a CD the laser burns little tiny groves in the reflective layer leaving some parts reflective and some not. When it goes back and reads the disc the laser shines on the reflective layer of the disc. Now when the laser hits the places that are non reflective the laser does not bonce off but when it hits the reflective parts in bounces back. The sequence of this bouncing back and not boncing back is a code of 1's and 0's. And that's how compact discs work.


Clothing to have fun in, as opposed to work clothes or formal clothing.


Yes but not on the reflective side, if you do that the disk won't work!
