Why upgrade to 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ Sheeting?

The difference between High Intensity Prismatic and Diamond Grade™ reflective sheeting.

Brighter Signs, Safer Roads. During the day, and especially at night, 3M Diamond Grade DG³ Reflective Sheeting can make a difference by making signage brighter and more visible, giving drivers more time to react. Let’s compare.

High Intensity Prismatic Sheeting meets middle grade performance standards and EN 12899-1 Class RA2. This reflective sheeting uses polycarbonate cube corner technology and is often used for reflective traffic and road signs.

Diamond Grade reflective sheeting DG³ meets Class RA3 and R3B of DIN 67520 and Class R3C-UK of UK National Annex to EN 12899-1. This highly reflective sheeting uses efficient full-cube prismatic technology that reflects more light back to its source than High Intensity Prismatic sheeting.
