3M™ High Intensity Prismatic (HIP) Reflective Sheeting Series 3930 is a non-metalized micro prismatic lens reflective sheeting designed for production of reflective durable traffic control signs, work zone devices and delineators that are exposed vertically in service. Not only is 3M high intensity prismatic sheeting bright and durable, it’s better for the environment. The manufacturing process for prismatic sheeting reduces VOC emissions by 97 percent and energy consumption by 72 percent compared to glass bead-type sheeting.
ASTM D 4956 Spec Type III and IV.
Durable - tougher topcoat aids against scuffs and scratches
Improved optical package increases nighttime visibility
10 year warranty
Meets multiple specifications
- Excellent choice for FHWA Minimum Retroreflectivity Compliance
- high intensity prismatic sheeting provides long-term reflectivity and durability
Series 3930 sheeting incorporates a pressure sensitive adhesive and should be applied to the sign substrate at temperature of 65ºF/18ºC or higher by any of the following methods: Mechanical squeeze roll applicator – refer to 3M Information Folder. Application to extrusions that are edge wrapped requires sufficient softening of the sheeting. This can be accomplished by directing additional heat to the “next to last” edge roller. This practice will increase productivity and minimize cracking. Hand squeeze roll applicator. Application of Series 3930 sheeting for complete signs or backgrounds must be done with a roll laminator, either mechanical or hand driven.
Hand application is recommended for legend and copy only. Hand applications will show some visual irregularities, which are objectionable to aesthetically critical customers. These are more noticeable on darker colors. To obtain a close-up uniform appearance, a roll laminator must be used. All direct applied copy and border MUST be cut at all metal joints and squeegeed at the joints
