Featured Product: 3M™ DBEF
DBEF is a multilayer, reflective polarizer. DBEF polarizes the backlights output so that it can transmit through the liquid crystal panel. Light of the wrong polarization is recycled into the backlight.

3M™ Advanced Light Control Film (ALCF) is a microlouver film that controls the distribution of light perpendicular to the louver structure. This light management can be used to prevent reflections from glass surfaces in the automotive interior.


3M Display Enhancement films utilize refraction and reflection to increase the efficiency of your backlight. This light management can be used to increase brightness or to manage power and thermal issues.
