St. Paul, Minn., July 27, 2009 - 3M Optical Systems Division is offering a new way to protect device displays and ensure privacy with the availability of its 3M Mobile Privacy Film and 3M Glossy Protection Film. 3M Mobile Privacy Film give users the freedom to send text messages, view photos and check e-mail securely and confidently, all while on the go. Whether it's a smartphone, PDA, mobile game device or video-enabled mobilephone, on-screen information stays confidential to the owner, even in the most public places. "As more and more people use their mobile devices to look at personal and sensitive information, there's a vital need to keep that information private and out of sight from unwelcomed viewers," stated Sharon Middendorf, product marketing manager at 3M Optical Systems. "3M takes privacy and protection very seriously, and that means preventing sneak peeks and prying eyes. We make sure your business stays your own." Key features of the Mobile Privacy Film include: - 3M's microlouver technology, which darkens the screen when viewed from the side - A light matte surface to help reduce screen glare - High transmission allowing the display to remain clear and easy to read for the owner - Removable, full surface adhesive that eliminates air gaps between the film and display, preventing additional reflections - Residue-free removal Additionally, 3M Glossy Protection Film helps maintain that out-of-box look for mobile devices by protecting the display surface from everyday use, accidental scratching and scuffing. The durable, glossy display protection film not only protects and keeps new displays clear but can also refresh existing matte displays with an updated hardcoat glossy sheen.
