Optilux™ 507 Enhanced Reflective Plastisol
- Optilux™ 507* Enhanced Reflective Plastisol is an easy to print, two-part, retro-reflective ink that contains light reflecting microspheres. When a garment printed with Optilux™ 507 ink is exposed to a focused beam of light, such as that from a flashlight or an automobile headlight, it reflects or returns light back at the light source.
- Optilux™ 507 appears as a conventional metallic silver shimmer ink under normal lighting conditions, but with the very enhanced attribute that it helps to increase the nighttime visibility of a printed design.
