3M's engineered films serve a vast multitude of uses. One product line enhances the brightness in LCD displays, while another blocks the sun from coming through windows. 3M films are used to create building-sized graphics and to prevent graffiti. Some are single-layered, with humble applications, and others combine hundreds of layers that are tuned to transmit or reflect specific wavelengths. Still other films provide very high barriers to oxygen and moisture, a requirement in next-generation electronic displays.
All wrapped up
Film technology spans countless applications - one of the more visible being the material behind large-format graphics. You can see 3M’s graphic films in use everywhere, from signs to vehicle wraps.
