3M Safety

3M Safety Series Films are composed of a transparent and weather stable polyester film with a scratch resistant surface and a strong acrylic adhesive. The film’s high tensile strength and elongation at break increases resistance of the overall glazing system to impact and pressure. They provide effective protection from injuries to persons, or damage to items caused by the fragments of broken glass. In the case of glass breakage the fragments are retained by the strong acrylic adhesive.
