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.
Retroreflective materials appear brightest to an observer located near the original light source, such as a car’s headlights. Since very little light is scattered when the light is returned, retroreflective materials enhance the contrast of the wearer for an observer located near the original light source.
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.
