3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG3 Reflective Sheeting gives outstanding reflectivity at every viewing angle, at every viewing distance and in all weather & daylight conditions. It satisfies or surpasses the minimum recommended luminance index for all classes including RA2, 3A and 3B. A massive twelve year performance guarantee helps protect your investment, and energy savings are possible too since regulations now permit use of DG3 without external illumination in certain situations.
Designed for durable road traffic signs, including gantries, motorways and trunk road signs, DG3 is certified in European Technical Approval (07/0272) and is the only premium sheeting that carries the CE quality marking. DG3is available in five colours, and also in fluorescent and translucent formats for special applications.
In all formats, DG3 achieves its remarkable performance from use of full corner cube optics, which reflect more light back to the driver than any other reflective system. Whilst the main advantage for specifiers (and drivers) is the superior performance that full corner cube optics provides, there are other benefits too. The production techniques used to make DG3 are much kinder on the environment than other reflective sheeting manufacturing methods. Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions are reduced by 97%, energy consumption by 77% and solid waste by 46% when compared to glass beaded sheeting manufacture.
