DG³ Sheeting Demonstration Videos

See for yourself

  • Fluorescent technology sign

    Fluorescent Technology Demonstration

    See how the fluorescent technology of DG³ sheeting is transformed from invisible light to visible light.

  • Stop sign visibility demonstration

    Stop Sign Visibility Demonstration

    Elevated seating positions result in a higher angle relative to headlights. In this demonstration, you'll see how elevated seating positions impact sign visibility and how higher-performing sign sheeting can help.

  • Laser light demonstration comparison

    Laser Light Demonstration

    This demonstration shows how 3M's microprismatic fluorescent sheeting can significantly improve critical sign visibility during nighttime conditions.  The larger cone of retroreflection illustrates how drivers of both large and small vehicles are better served by Diamond Grade DG³ sheeting.

  • Sign Sheeting performance comparison

    Sign Sheeting Performance Comparison

    The demonstration in this video shows how 3M DG³ Reflective Sheeting compares to Engineer Grade sheeting and High Intensity Prismatic Sheeting.

Additional Benefits of 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³

With its life expectancy of 12 years, Diamond Grade DG³ provides protection longer than 3M's lower-grade sign sheeting.

  • Bright airport sign

    Increased reactivity time for drivers

    Brighter signs give drivers more time to react. During the day, and especially at night, DG³ Reflective Sheeting can make a difference by making signage brighter and more visible as compared to our High Intensity Prismatic sheeting, giving drivers more time to react.

    Brighter sheeting is more visible to drivers and has been shown to increase safety by helping cut nighttime accidents by 25 to 46 percent.*

  • Retroreflectivity sign examples at airport

    Can help reduce lighting costs

    "With the highest brightness and retroreflectivity ratings in the industry, Diamond Grade DG³ can safely lower installed road lighting costs by up to $150,000 per km, and annual lighting maintenance by up to $15,000 per km."

  • Long-lasting material comparison

    Long-lasting and less maintenance cost

    With its life expectancy of 12 years, it provides protection longer than lower-grade sign sheeting. It may also require less maintenance and reduce energy expenses.
