Protective Overlay Films

Our range of protective overlay films (POF) is all about protecting drivers and protecting your investment. Protection for drivers comes from the fact that the overlay films help maintain sign performance, even in the face of the daily 'battering' signs can get from dew, dirt and rain, as well as deliberate abuse such as graffiti and fly-posting. Protection for your investment comes from the fact that the right choice of POF makes the sign face easier to clean, and easier to maintain

Dew Resistant Sheeting

In geographic regions prone to heavy dew-fall, 3M™ Dew Resistant Sheeting 1180 is the perfect solution for safe-guarding sign performance. It is a clear, high surface energy film designed to promote the coalescence of individual dew droplets so that dew cannot form on the sign face and cause refraction of light leading to a loss of retroreflection on the sign face.
