Light Enhancement Film

Ever searching to lead the market, the product development department of 3M have introduced the 3635 Light Enhancement Film. This is a self adhesive film that lines the inside of a light box and very cleverly manages to transmit more light than if the light box were painted white or left bare metal. They wouldn't tell us the physics of the process but the results were quite obvious. In certain situations it would be possible to reduce the amount of fluorescent tubes within a light box from say two to one whilst maintaining an acceptable level of light. You will have to do your own sums to establish whether the savings in energy costs, maintenance and capital cost of lighting units outweigh the additional costs of the 3M film.
