For bicycle, there are many parts need retro-reflector. Kindly see the below pictures. Which you need to make molds, please provide us the sample pictures with size, and the standard which the products need to reach.
For such a set of bicycle plastic retro-reflector, there are many standards that need to follow. This time, SWY MOULD would like to take CPSC regulation for example.
Regulation of installation
1. Front reflector
The reflector or mount shall not contact the ground plane when the bicycle is resting on that plane in any orientation. The optical axis of the reflector shall be directed forward within 5° of the horizontal-vertical alignment of the bicycle when the wheels are tracking in a straight line.
2. Rear reflector
The reflector or mount shall not contact the ground plane when the bicycle is resting on that plane in any orientation. The reflector shall be mounted such that it is to the rear of the seat mast with the top of the reflector at least 76 mm (3.0 in) below the point on the seat surface that is intersected by the line of the seat post. The optical axis of the reflector shall be directed rearward within 5° of the horizontal-vertical alignment of the bicycle when the wheels are travelling in a straight line.
3. Side reflectors
Reflectors affixed to the wheel spokes shall be mounted either flat on the spokes or within the spoke cage such that the angle between the optical axis and the normal to the plane of the wheel shall not exceed the angle of the spokes with the plane of the wheel. The reflectors shall not interfere with any wheel adjustments.
There shall be retroreflective tire sidewalls or, alternatively, reflectors mounted on the spokes of each wheel, or, for non-caliper rim brake bicycles, retroreflective wheel rims. The center of spoke-mounted reflectors shall be within 76 mm (3.0 in.) of the inside of the rim. Side reflective devices shall be visible on each side of the wheel.
4. Pedal reflectors
Each pedal shall have reflectors located on the front and rear surfaces of the pedal. The reflector elements may be either integral with the construction of the pedal or mechanically attached, but shall be sufficiently recessed from the edge of the pedal, or of the reflector housing, to prevent contact of the reflector element with a flat surface placed in contact with the edge of the pedal.
Regulation of color
1. Front reflector: Colorless.
2. Rear reflector: Red.
3. The side-mounted reflector: Colorless or Amber on the front wheel and essentially Colorless or Red on the rear wheel.
The side-mounted reflector devices shall be essentially colorless or amber on the front wheel and essentially colorless or red on the rear wheel.
4. Pedal reflector: Colorless or Amber
