What makes 3M™ DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes better?
Aesthetics: DI-NOC architectural finishes resemble natural materials and other types of surfaces to an astonishing degree, delivering the look you want, without the weight.
Environmental: DI-NOC architectural finishes are not produced from trees or metal-bearing ores. Some designs are included in a Carbon Offset program.
Easy application: 3M Comply™ Adhesive Technology is repositionable and virtually eliminates bubbles, simplifying and speeding application. Yet it bonds powerfully to virtually any substrate.
Why you should insist on 3M™ DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes.
For renovations: Lightweight and self-adhering, DI-NOC architectural finishes can be applied in situ to the existing substrate, reducing labor and material cost compared to natural materials. With DI-NOC products, you create a whole new look, quickly and inexpensively. But not at the expense of aesthetics, thanks to its uncanny resemblance to natural materials.
For new construction: Perhaps you prefer the authenticity of real wood, metal or stone. That's only natural. Use them for select areas. Specify DI-NOC architectural finishes everywhere else. You'll get cost savings, speed of application, durability – and still maintain the aesthetic look you desire.
You get the full visual impact of natural materials such as wood, metal and stone at a fraction of the price. Applying DI-NOC architectural finishes directly to substrates – including ceiling tiles and drywall – saves time, money, and makes application fast and easy.
Specify DI-NOC instead of materials that come from forests or metal-bearing ores that require mining. Some DI-NOC designs are part of our Carbon Offset program.
DI-NOC can be applied to existing fixtures, reducing the need to remove cupboards, doors & wall panelling that may have ended up in land-fill.
Perfect indoors and out. On flat surfaces, or over complex curves. Perfect for walls, ceilings, floors, furniture or fixtures. The vinyl material itself is amazingly flexible. Together with 3M Comply™ Adhesive Technology air channels, it enables fast, easy, virtually bubble-free application.
