01. We make our own polyester.
3M™ is one of only a few window film manufacturers that actually produces it’s own polyester, including the patented microlayer and colour-stable technology film
02. No one knows adhesives like 3M™
3M™ actually makes it’s own adhesives. From Scotch™ Tape and Post-it™ notes to permanent construction adhesives, 3M™ is a world leader in adhesive technologies. The adhesives we use in our films provide a unique combination of optical clarity, fast drying, long lasting bond and simple removal
03. Abrasion Resistance.
This core technology has stemmed from 3M’s™ expertise in materials that are abrasive, such as 3M™ sandpaper and Scotchbrite™ scouring pads. This understanding of how materials can be abraded has moved 3M™ into a world leadership position protecting surfaces from abrasion
04. Thin coating and nano-technologies.
Bringing all of the components together into one window film requres the ability to apply very thin coating technologies as evident in the Ceramic Series where a single layer of ceramic material gives excellent performance and visibility and the Prestige Series films where nano-technology is used to combine over 200 layers into a single film no thicker than a post-it note
05. Colour Stability
Our Night Vision, Ceramic and Prestige films acheive their colour without using dyes. Dyed films will change colour and go purple or fade over time, looking unattractive and reducing their effectiveness. The Ceramic and Prestige series also acheive their excellent performance without the use of metals. A metal layer in a film can interfere with wireless and cellular signals and is susceptible to corrosion in coastal environments
