    Found this old (1995, almost 20 years ago) Nicsand T3 Alpha Laser Blocking Plate. Don't ya just love the Material: "Classified." From Nov 1996 CD Mag there's a test and I guess they found it works (but not really by our testing standards and today's guns). I am going to see how she does against the TSs :):)

    Nicsand , the manufacturer, was at one time the largest supplier of Auto sanding products in the US. Unfortunately, 3M got into their business too and Nicsand went belly up about 10 years ago.

    I am the inventor of the T3 alpha. I can assure you that the product does in fact work in fact it was tested in car and driver in March 1996 and written up in Forbes magazine as well as sold worldwide in stores like BJ wholesalers Harrington catalog etc. The product does lessen the capture rate of 904 nm laser which is still used today. It does not eliminate it completely but radar detectors that attempt to warn you of laser are an absolute joke anyhow. Rarely will you get a warning before the gun has already acquired your speed. The material used was formulated in conjunction with NASA at the glen facility in cleveland Ohio. The reason that the product is no longer manufactured Is because when we did in fact partner with Nicsand to market the product in Sam’s Club and they required a special pallet design with informational brochures for the consumer.This idea was great except for the fact that 80% of the stores considered them a high theft item and stored the pallet and put one of the units in the jewelry case at each of the stores. The product was never seen by most of the customers and over half of the units were returned to Nicsand. Retailers didn’t know the back story and black balled the item. Thought you’d like to know.

    Bet it jams the original PL and maybe PLII on smaller cars with small headlights.

    Thanks Scott @T3tech for the update. Remember,I tested it with the Tru Speed S ( binocular type lidar manufactured in 2011 and I still own the unit) The only units out that CD could have used were most likely a Pro Laser 1 or 2 in 1996.

    Believe it or not, I still run it on my front plate ( it's old and yellowed) only to assist the ALP in possible acquisition time. I wish they still had old new stock because I'd buy one (s) again , if only to say I have them and hope it works. Put it this way, it's probably better than Veil, but I am not sure that's saying much.

    I do recall testing it on a stationary basis shooting at my plates and the TSs was able to get an immediate punch through on its distance measurement, but that's not a moving vehicle.

    Let us know if you have any old new stock. You could probably unload it here.

    Remember too, lidar guns today are essentially identical to old ones except for the fact that beam widths have tightened, optics are better and the firmware now allows for variable rate pulses . I honestly don't know how your plate would affect those, if at all.

    By the way, we have tested some vehicle window tint that works quite well, particularly when doubled up , against all lidar guns.

    I looked for months trying to find 1 of the T3s years ago but had no luck locating a source.
    Wish you had mentioned that when we met in WI, I did bring my IR cam w/ me for that trip. Would have been easy to Test it in 10min. by removing it & firing your TSS into it while watching for the pass-through energy level behind it.
    It was interesting to find the secret of @lugnuts special IR film & how it actually meets its performance spec... since then, I've been using it on my Front LP ever since & was key to finally stopping the P/T @ThreePedals6.2 kept getting sub-500ft w/ the D.E.T.C. !

    Would be a more realistic test to test reflection, not passthrough.

    Actually no it wouldn't in this instance for this product !
    Take a closer look at the package graphics which is why I stated what I did in my Post.
    And yes, it should have been a "given" I would have also done at the same time what you suggest. :D

    I have to see if I can round up the box and the plate. If I can, I'd be happy to send it to you @RedRocket

    Ok PC -
    I'll check it out to see if it lives up to claims, maybe even road Test it w/ Lidars, too.
    Box it n' send.
