3M Introduces Flexible Substrate Optimized for use with LEDs

3M Commercial Solutions is helping brand owners and graphics manufacturers embrace green technology with a new flexible substrate optimized for use with LEDs. 3M™ Envision™ Flexible Substrate FS-1 is an industry breakthrough, making it possible for graphics manufacturers to create brilliant signage that makes more efficient use of LEDs and energy.

3M™ Envision™ Flexible Substrate FS-1 is nearly twice as light transmissive as 3M™ Panagraphics™ III Wide Width Flexible Substrate*, allowing manufacturers to build signs that use less energy and require less maintenance. The new technology gives brand owners and graphics manufacturers an outstanding tool to go greener without sacrificing performance.

“Sustainability is increasingly important in today’s sign industry,” said Tony Fulco, marketing manager, 3M Commercial Solutions. “The Envision brand gives our customers signage solutions that deliver outstanding benefits with no compromise in sustainability or performance.”

3M™ Envision™ Flexible Substrate FS-1 also gives graphics manufacturers increased design versatility, with options to decorate with cut vinyl or direct print with solvent, UV or latex inks. The seamless, wide-width flexible substrate is backed by the industry-leading 3M™ MCS™ Warranty, and can be combined with other LED-enabling products in the 3M Envision line of products for illuminated signs, such as 3M™ Envision™ Translucent Film Series 3730. It can also be used with 3M™ Scotchcal™ Gloss Overlaminate 3658G or Matte Overlaminate 3660M, which offer up to nine years of outdoor durability.

Graphics manufacturers who are ready to lead the way with a brilliant solution should visit 3Mgraphics.com/switchon or call 1-800-328-3908.

*Unprocessed 3M™ Envision™ Flexible Substrate FS-1 provides nearly twice the light transmission as unprocessed 3M™ Panagraphics™ III Wide Width Flexible Substrate. See 3M Product Bulletin FS-1 for details.

3M, Envision, Panagraphics, MCS and Scotchcal are trademarks of 3M Company.
