The Science Behind Our Reflective...
The High Grade Reflective in the FuelBelt
products use a technology known as retroreflection. It helps the eye
perceive light in low-light conditions. In more scientific terms,
retroreflection occurs when light rays are returned in the direction from
which they came. a large amount of reflected light is returned in the
direction from which they came. A large amount of reflected light is
returned directly to the original light source, such as a car's headlights.
Since very little light is scattered when the light is returned,
retro-reflective materials appear brightest to an observer located near the
original light source.
