March 31, 2017, Bangalore: In an increasingly eco-conscious marketplace, organizations are becoming more aware of the impact of sustainable practices. With over 25 years of partnership with brands & designers in India, 3M went a step ahead and launched the Envision Range of Print Films: a sustainable range of graphic materials. These are branding solutions that would enable companies that are striving towards strong environmental credentials to achieve their sustainability promise and goals.
With declining air-quality in India, products contributing to healthier indoor air quality is of utmost necessity for architects, building owners and graphics installers. Envision Series is a recipient of the prestigious UL GREENGUARD GOLD certification, awarded to products passing strict testing standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into indoor environments and thus contributes to healthier interior air quality. Also, the Envision Range of Print films qualify as low-emitting materials under the LEEDv4 standard and can help contribute to LEED credits.

Commenting on the launch, Sujatha Narayan, Vice President & General Manager, 3M Commercial Solutions Division said, “The Envision brand from 3M has set an example of how we use innovation as a powerful force for progress. The launch is to highlight the importance of eco-friendly products in the day and age we live in and we would want to partner with brands that have sustainability on their agenda.”
The Envision Print films are Non-PVC, phthalate-free and manufactured with no added chlorine or halogens and 58 per cent less solvents than conventional films, and is also recyclable.
