See the difference.

Missing or failing to obey road signs could be detrimental to traffic safety and lead to an increased number of car crashes. See how our brightest reflective sheeting, 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ Reflective Sheeting (ASTM Type XI) compares to High Intensity Prismatic (ASTM Type I) and the FHWA minimum standard. Even after twelve years of wear and tear, DG³ Reflective Sheeting is more visible, giving motorists the positive guidance they need.

Details
  • 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ Reflective Sheeting Series 4000 offers superior reflectivity at short and long distances
  • Meets today’s highest published performance specifications
  • Disadvantaged sign placement locations such as overhead or left shoulder
  • One of the brightest durable sheeting for cost-efficient guidance
  • Provides level of luminance needed by older drivers
  • Accommodates drivers of large vehicles
  • Available in standard and fluorescent colors for highly visible signs from day to dusk to dark
  • Pressure-sensitive adhesive

  • Designed to meet the needs of all drivers now and years from now: 3MTM Diamond GradeTM DG3 Reflective Sheeting incorporates “full cube” technology for optimal performance. Its optical elements are 100 percent efficient, returning almost 60 percent of available light – nearly double that of traditional prismatics. DG3 sheeting is designed as a replacement for all types of reflective sign sheetings in use today. It performs at all sight distances – including short and medium sight distances, and where signs are positioned in disadvantaged locations such as overhead or on the left shoulder.
  • Better for the environment: Not only is 3M Diamond Grade DG3 sheeting bright and durable, it’s better for the environment. The manufacturing processes for prismatic sheeting reduce VOC emissions by 97 percent and energy consumption by 72 percent compared to standard engineer grade sheeting processes. Now that’s a change for the better.
  • Delivers optimal performance where and when drivers need it most
  • Available in standard and fluorescent colors for highly visible signs from day to dusk to dark
  • Its optical elements return almost 60 percent of available light to drivers--nearly double that of other prismatic sheetings

3M™ Diamond Grade™ Reflective Sheeting offers industry-leading retroreflectivity, conspicuity and legibility because of its highly efficient retroreflective optics. It helps improve safety by providing higher luminance values at distances most critical to drivers.

3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ Reflective Sheeting is a highly reflective, durable, microprismatic lens sheeting with pressure sensitive adhesive.
