Safeguard S80 is a two layer polyester laminate 8 mil (.008”)  that provides moderate resistance to forced entry since it has both a low tear resistance and break strength. It is primarily used as a security film to hold glass together in the case of breakage. This clear, single-layer polyester film also has a special thicker adhesive to hold broken glass together.

3M invented window laminate and is the only manufacturer that makes the entire product, including polyester, adhesives, and UV inhibitors. Additionally, 3M is the only manufacturer that offers both the basic polyester and ‘micro-layer’ technologies. While all other major manufacturers offer commercial product warranties up to 10 years, the 3M window film warranty goes the extra step of also covering labour for both removal and replacement of laminate for the full ten years should there be any problems with the installation. There are many variables that define a ‘quality’ installation including laminate selection, trimming, and frame bonding.
