800 degrees centigrade is a normal temperature for fires. Close to the floor in a building on fire it can be considerably cooler, around 50 or 60 degrees. To handle such temperatures, firefighter gear must live up to strict standards for heat resistance, limited flame spread and low heat transfer. All reflective materials must be individually tested for flame spreading and heat resistance, where requirements must be met for ignition, melting, hole formation, dripping and shrinkage. Reflective materials are also tested to ensure that they meet visibility standards after exposure to the harsh testing conditions.
LOXY reflective tapes are made to fulfill the most demanding requirements in any situation. Our flame retardant reflective tapes range from extremely durable sew-on tapes and trim tapes with increased visibility to innovative elastic transfer tapes.
