Introducing new high-visibility, low-waste @3M Scotchlite Reflective Material, designed specifically for workers.

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Reflective safety gear requires a combination of comfort, compliance and visibility. To help meet this need, 3M™ Scotchlite™ Reflective Material has launched the 5410 Diamond Mesh Trim, a revolutionary leap in performance and design.

The new reflective material delivers bright, compliant visibility paired with breathability and durability. It was developed with a patent-pending* cut-and-spread technology, which eliminates material waste created during the interstitial cutting and weeding process. This results in a more resource-efficient, lower-cost trim.

“Today’s marketplace often demands that a premium be paid for innovative products with a sustainability story,” said Ryan Gallagher, 3M. “The 5410 Diamond Mesh Trim disrupts that trend by providing a high-value, high-visibility and low-material waste trim to brands and workers around the world.”

The new product was designed to help meet customer’s performance needs, but also caters to financial and sustainability-focused needs.

The new Diamond Mesh Trim will be on display in Hall 6, Stand E27 at the A+A 2017 show in Dusseldorf, Germany.
