is applied by a specially designed, precision coater developed
by 3M. It is the only coating that has the "rejuvenation"
effect on both sides of film (polyester or acetate). Tough,
clear THD/Photogard coating is only 2.5 microns (.1mm)
thick - so microscopically thin that it does not affect the
projection viewing quality.

with THD/Photogard, it never needs to nor can it be
re-coated. The coating provides a protective shield against
scratches, static electricity, dirt, smudges, and bacteria.
coating protects films completely, seals against damage, and
extends projection runs.
