3M Announces Envision FS-1
A flexible substrate for LED backlit signage.
Designed specifically for backlit signage illuminated by LEDs, 3M’s (www.3Mgraphics.com) Envision Flexible Substrate FS-1 allows printers to create bright, more energy-efficient signage. The company reports that Envision FS-1 is nearly twice as light transmissive as 3M Panagraphics III Wide Width Flexible Substrate, allowing brand owners and graphics manufacturers to create signs that use less energy and require less maintenance without sacrificing performance. The film can be decorated with cut vinyl or direct printing through solvent, UV, or latex inks. The seamless, wide-width substrate is backed by 3M’s MCS warranty and can be combined with other LED-enabling products in the company’s Envision line of products for illuminated signage.
