3M™ Safety Series is designed for use on the interior surface of windows. They are composed of transparent and weather stable polyester films, scratch resistant surface and a strong acrylic adhesive. The high tensile strength and elongation at break properties, increase resistance of the glazing system to impact. The films also significantly reduce the transmission of UVA and UVB rays, which are the main cause of fading.
3M™ Safety Series S40, S70, S80 and S140 provide an effective protection from injuries to persons or damage to items caused by fragments of broken glass. In the case of glass breakage, the fragments are held together by strong acrylic adhesives. This provides protection against trips and falls, forced entry, civil unrest and other impacts, plus graffiti and vandalism as a sacrificial layer. All Safety Series films are certified impact resistant according to EN 12600 and S140 to EN 356. S40 and S70 were fire tested and approved for use in trains running in tunnels and underground according to EN 45545 Part 2. All films are rated Class A fire resistant, according to ASTM E84.
