3M™ Visible-light Reflective Polarizer (VRP) is a polymer-based multilayer optical film with an optically clear adhesive. It is an automotive reflective polarizer film that improves polarization efficiency by transmitting one polarization state and reflecting the other, recycling light back into the system, which increases brightness over a wide viewing angle. This increase in efficiency can be used to offset battery consumption and more in LCD applications. This film is used in head-up display (HUD) applications, specifically the picture-generating unit (PGU), to provide high brightness for the projected image while reducing undesired visible light sources projected back to the PGU through the HUD assembly.
We combine functional layers to create one powerful solution.

3M™ Visible-light Reflective Polarizer transmits the correct polarization of light and reflects the incorrect polarization away from critical areas of the HUD. Depending on placement, it can help reduce solar and LED heat around the PGU, helping components last longer. Enjoy these benefits alongside higher efficiency and contrast enabled by 3M polarization control.
