    Shelf Life (mon) 12
    Not Good For
    Don't Use For Not recommended for specification purpose, Retroreflective brightness varies with photo sensor geometry, retroreflector orientation and application.
  • Best Practices for 3M 3000X

    *See Terms of Use Below

    1. Surface Preparation

      Remove oil, grease and/or dirt from the application surface through a solvent wipe with toluol, xylol, lacquer thinner, mineral spirits or VM&p naptha. On lacquer surfaces, wipe with mineral spirits or hepthane. After solvent wiping, dry the surface with a clean dry rag.

    2. Application

      The adhesive is protected by a liner which is removed at the time of application and the reflector is pressed into position.

    3. Clean-Up

      Sheeting that requires cleaning after use should be flushed with water than washed with a mild detergent solution and soft bristle brush or sponge. Avoid pressure which may scratch the surface. Flush with water following washing. Do not use solvents to clean the sheeting surface.
