Backlight Reflective Film brightens displays.

Measuring just 65 microns thick, 3M Enhanced Specular Reflector Film reflects 98% of incident and generated light to optimize performance of backlit displays used in portable devices. Film maintains uniform high reflectivity across visible spectrum without color shifts. Unlike diffuse reflection where light is reflected in many directions, ESR Film reflects light back toward viewer in single...
