Here are three important characteristics for reflective sheeting to consider:
Brightness matters. You can download our white paper on traffic sign brightness here.
With 3M, you can count on long-lasting and effective signs that help drivers get home safely.

In this demonstration, you’ll see how elevated seating positions impact sign visibility and how higher-performing sign sheeting can help.
Traffic sign fabrication and orientation also matter in creating signs that reflect from different angles. Learn more about road sign orientation uniformity here.
For non-critical signs and temporary traffic control applications, 3M™ Advanced Flexible Engineer Grade Reflective Sheeting Series 7300 is the flexible and compatible sheeting you’ve been looking for.
Its retroreflectivity meets ASTM D4956 Type I for non-critical street and road signs, and its bright white color makes it highly visible and ideal for eye-catching graphics.
DG³ sheeting is our top-of-the-line reflective sign sheeting. With nearly twice the reflectivity of our lower-grade signage material, 3M™ Diamond Grade Sheeting helps create more visible signs, and more visible signs have been shown to cut nighttime accidents by up to 46%.*
Learn more about 3M™ Diamond Grade™ DG³ and how it compares to other sheeting types on our next page.
