  • Our lightweight grade creates medium diffusion for a soft light effect in situations where some contrast is still desired.
  • Our medium grade creates a dramatic soft light effect where the elimination of most shadows is desirable.
  • Our original, heavy grade creates a dramatic soft light effect where diffusing light over a large area is desired. This grade is an ideal and cleanable surface for shooting tables and table tops.
