Request: Looking for source of IR and Glo materials for patches
« on: February 25, 2015, 02:23:04 PM »
All,

I've got to make some crazy custom patches that have IR and Glo. Can someone please point me to a supplier/manufacturer of the materials for hex and non hex  infrared material and Glo materials? I'm looking for the materials supplier and not a shop that makes the patches or a middle man/re-seller.

I've got to make stuff like this:

Thanks,
Alex

Orafol makes prismatic, reflective, adhesive backed film that's screenprintable and non vinyl/laser friendly gary.buckATorafol.com

3M's SOLAS has vinyl fwiw.

Epilon's Spectre inks http://www.epolin.com/spectre%E2%84%A2-visibly-opaque-ir-transmitting-voirt-screen-inks epolinATepolin.com

Laminate multiple layers using something like double tack mounting tape.  Stitch perimeter.

A desktop printer cutter could potentially be a sub $10k, desktop, on demand, custom patch machine.

Please consider sharing any meaningful results  :)

Cyalume make a retro-reflective and photoluminescent tape... either adhesive backed or for sewing called Cyflect.
