3M Commercial Graphics is helping graphics manufacturers and sign builders embrace the future with LED lighting. New 3M Envision Translucent Films and 3M Envision Diffuser Films are industry breakthroughs – the first graphic films optimized for use with LEDs – letting graphics manufacturers achieve maximum sign face brightness while requiring fewer light sources. Now, sign shops no longer need to add more LEDs to reach the level of brilliance they want.
3M Envision Translucent and Diffuser Films help graphics manufacturers create richly colored backlit signs with even sign illumination and no hot spots. Using these films, shops can achieve the same level of brightness with fewer LEDs, reducing material and maintenance costs while providing the great look that customers expect.1 Alternately, graphics manufacturers can keep the same number of LEDs and increase a sign’s brightness even more. With the following films, shops have appealing new choices to create the looks they want:

While specially optimized for use with LEDs, these new diffusers and translucent films are also compatible with fluorescent lights, and will allow any backlit sign to look its best. The diffuser films are available with two levels of light transmission, 50% and 60%, to manage sign face brightness. The translucent films are available in several standard colors, custom colors and as an inkjet printable film, offering an increased number of construction options.
“Sustainability is increasingly important in today’s graphics industry,” said Tony Fulco, marketing manager, 3M Commercial Graphics. “3M is proud to provide the market with graphic solutions that deliver outstanding sustainability benefits without sacrificing performance.”
3M Envision Translucent and Diffuser Films are backed by the 3M MCS Warranty, giving graphics manufacturers added assurance of the performance of their finished graphics.
