DI-NOC is a woodgrain, metallic or leather sheet vinyl which began to gain popularity in the 90’s. Due to its ability to stick to virtually any kind of existing surface, DI-NOC became the most often used for re-furbishing and re-covering existing areas. Recently Indy Auto Graphics provided and installed 3M Di-Noc film for a senior center which we are very proud of. 4,500 square feet of woodgrain wall covering adding the final touch of class to this plain drywall building.

By now, DI-NOC has progressed considerably and is offered around the world for numerous types of residential, commercial and institutional applications both indoors and outdoors.

What is 3M DI-NOC Vinyl?

3M DI-NOC vinyls are long lasting, cleanable, versatile PVC films that utilize modern 3M’s Comply Adhesive air release technology, for quick and easy application without any bubbles. The films have exceptional flexibility and adhesion due to which they can be used indoors or outdoors on flat or complex curved substrates, walls, furniture, fixtures, and so on. Some of the films can also be put on three-dimensional surfaces and/or thermoformed. That’s why they are excellent for both new building construction and remodeling.
