3M™ Display Camouflage Film (DCF) is a polymer-based multilayer optical film that manages the polarization output of light from LCD backlights. It is a 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 energy consumption and more in LCD applications.
We combine functional layers to create one powerful solution.

Films with polarization control from 3M transmit the polarization of light that an LCD uses and reflect the polarization state it doesn‘t back into the backlight where it bounces and returns. Some of this light has changed polarization and is transmitted to the LCD, resulting in less wasted light and a more efficient display.
3M™ Display Camouflage is a loose film versus solutions that are directly laminated to an LCD panel. The film features a white coating, which gives displays a light hue when turned off. This offers you more design options for your device.
