A Guide to 3M™ DI-NOC™ Wallcoverings

  • New paint is a great way to breathe new life into a commercial property, but it’s not always the right aesthetic upgrade. If you’re looking to freshen up your business or office and add style in a fun, exciting way, consider 3M™ DI-NOC™ wallcoverings. 

    What Is 3M™ DI-NOC™?

    This innovative vinyl architectural film has been around for over 30 years as a cost-effective and sustainable way to give indoor and outdoor walls or surfaces a new look. This vinyl film can withstand the elements of weather and UV rays and can be applied during new construction or remodel projects.

    There are thousands of different finishes and textures of 3M™ DI-NOC™ to choose from, which means you can find a wallcovering that fits virtually every style and brand. It can be applied to almost any flat or three-dimensional surface, inside and out – you can even install it on rough or aging surfaces.

    DI-NOC™ is made from polyolefin, a polymer (like resins or plastic) that doesn’t interact with any other chemicals and offers low VOC (volatile organic compounds) ratings to help keep air quality safe. Food manufacturing and healthcare facilities are great locations for this sterile and patient-safe wallcovering.

    Why Choose 3M™ DI-NOC™?

    When changing the look of a property is as easy as installing vinyl architectural film, it’s no wonder that so many property owners choose 3M™ DI-NOC™ over renovation or even new construction. Installing the film is far less expensive and disruptive than these traditional methods. The thousands of finish options are easier and cheaper to order and obtain the construction materials like lumber or metal – which are currently at record-breaking high prices.

    Regardless of the surface it’s being applied to, 3M™ guarantees the film to be bubble-free. Once correctly installed by a manufacturer-certified professional, 3M™ DI-NOC™ has a lifespan of 12 years with a manufacturer’s warranty that protects against defects that appear within five years of installation. 3M™ DI-NOC™ also carries a Class A fire-resistance rating.

    The film is resistant to UV light, wear and tear, and cold weather exposure and highly resistant to cracks or peels over its lifetime. 3M™ DI-NOC™ is also highly resistant to staining liquids, including wine, cooking oil, and soda, with maintenance limited to gentle cleaning with a soft cloth and water and detergent as needed. All of the testing results done by 3M™ are available upon request or through the manufacturer’s website.

    Who Can Install 3M™ DI-NOC™?

    Before scheduling a commercial property renovation, consider your options – consider 3M™ DI-NOC™. Without expensive machinery or weeks of disruption to your business, you could extend the life of your property while updating its look.

    The film is proprietary and must be expertly installed to uphold the warranty and maintain a bubble-free appearance. Only 3M™ certified professionals can properly install the films and provide education and guidance about how to care for them over their lifetime properly.
