The HydroTrans Reflective Transfer series is a two-part, PVC-free transfer system containing a silver and white water-based reflective ink. Transfers made with this ink produce reflective prints that are more durable and more reflective than many plastisol versions. Garments transferred with HydroTrans Reflective transfers will provide higher visibility in for joggers, cyclists or construction workers who wear the garment in low-light situations.
