3M™ FASARA™ Essen

3M™ FASARA™ Essen (SH2EMES) is a frosted film with a matte finish. As its name suggests, Essen shares the essence of traditional sandblasted or etched glass. What sets Essen apart from these alternatives is its affordability, nondisruptive installation, and easy maintenance. Like other FASARA decorative glass finishes, Essen is applied to existing glass surfaces, allowing for tidy, fast installation that need not disrupt normal business operations. Unlike etched and sandblasted glass, Essen is unlikely to show fingerprint marks and it can be easily cleaned with a standard water-based cleaning solution.

FASARA Essen (SH2EMES) is perfect for use as a privacy film for interior glass surfaces. When applied to clear glass, this translucent decorative film provides enhanced privacy without sacrificing style or natural light. With a Visible Light Reflectance of 26% and a Visible Light Transmittance of 55%, FASARA Essen allows the sun’s light to pass through the glass to illuminate interior spaces, reducing the need for artificial light.

In addition to obscuring the views of passersby, FASARA Essen frosted film blocks at least 99% of UV light from passing through the glass. Reducing exposure to the sun’s UV rays protects floors and furnishings from fading, thereby extending the lifespan of interior decor. Additionally, by blocking UV light, Essen protects occupants against the damaging effects of UV exposure on skin.

Essen translucent frosted film can be applied to add privacy and style to virtually any interior glass, including partitions, walls, and doors. This decorative film is ideal for commercial applications, such as office settings, hotels, and retail environments, as well as residential applications in private areas like bathroom windows or showers.
