What makes 3M™ Visible-light Reflective Cover stand out from comparable 3M™ Reflective Polarizers? It’s tested for durability against higher levels of cold, heat, humidity and thermal shock.
3M™ Visible-light Reflective Cover (VRC) is a polymer-based multilayer optical film that’s laminated to a polycarbonate substrate. It is an automotive reflective polarizer mirror 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 cover, to provide high brightness for the projected image while reducing undesired visible light sources projected back to the picture-generating unit (PGU) through the HUD assembly.
We combine functional layers to create one powerful solution.

3M™ Visible-light Reflective Cover transmits the correct polarization of light and reflects the incorrect polarization away from critical areas of the HUD via the top cover of the unit. This can reduce solar heat by as much as 55%, helping components last longer. Enjoy these benefits alongside higher efficiency and contrast enabled by 3M polarization control.
