  • Keep the energy on the music, not going out the window.

    Metal free nanotechnology in 3M™ Window Film Prestige Exterior Series rejects up to 97% of the sun's heat-producing infrared light and up to 99% of UV rays, helping the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame to reduce energy costs by 8-12% annually.

    December 1, 1901 Keep the energy on the music, not going out the window.
  • Here’s a brighter idea.

    Use silver metallised and weatherable polymeric film with a solar-weighted total hemispherical reflectance of 94% to direct light. The result: brighter LED lamps in Africa.

    December 1, 1901 Here’s a brighter idea.
  • More power, less disruption.

    Using aluminium composite for the conductor core of a power line means you can carry twice the electrical power at half the weight—without disrupting existing infrastructure.

    December 1, 1901 More power, less disruption.
  • See how we’re harnessing natural light to reduce energy.

    Micro-structured prisms optically direct as much as 80% of exterior natural light in and up, helping a first-of-its-kind Net Zero Walgreens chemist produce more energy than it consumes.
