3M display materials manipulate the transmission and reflection of light. By combining our expertise in multilayer films, lenses, and microreplication, we are able to increase the clarity, durability, or brightness of virtually all types of electronic displays―from liquid crystal displays in handheld devices to LCD monitors and televisions to gigantic projection displays. These materials are also used in privacy filters for laptop computers and for automated teller machines.
