Reflect-O-Lay Reflective Filament - 2.85mm
SKU: 000 OTH2RFL
REFLECT-o-LAY is a new "Lay" filament from Kai Parthy that, during daylight, has an ordinary grey finish, but, when hit with beams of light in the dark, becomes reflective!
REFLECT-o-LAY filament essentially mimics the reflective properties of traffic signs, safety jackets and bike reflectors. On top of its amazing reflective properties, the inventor says that the filament is also flexible!
Perfect for fun 3D printing projects like sunglasses, but also for functional fashion accessories like sewn-on patches, safety gadgets for bikers or joggers – even for laser reflective position or marking points for big distances. This material is washable and sew-able!
As Kai explains, it actually relies on the retro-reflection principle. “The filament is flexible and filled with millions of reflective pigments. This pigments occur as little dots out of the outer face of filament and of course after printing. They send incoming light back,” he explains. “In a darkened room you will be totally surprised by this effect. This retro-reflective effect you known from traffic sign foils, reflective vests, screen printing colors or reflective spray-paints.”
