Benefits of 3M Reflective Technology
3M is a pioneer in developing the science behind retroreflection and has been advancing the technology in new and groundbreaking ways for over 70 years.
Retroreflectivity helps the eye perceive objects in low-light conditions when illuminated by a light source. In more scientific terms, retroreflection occurs when light rays are returned in the direction from which they came.
Types of Reflection
A large amount of reflected light is returned directly to the original light source.
Light is reflected at the same angle as it comes in from the source. Light is not returned to the source.
Very little light is returned to the source. Light is scattered as it hits the surface.
