3M has added 18 'trendy' new colours to its 3M Car Wrap Film Series 1080, bringing the total number of finishes now available to 73. This enables a much wider choice of options for vehicle customisation and personalisation, according to the company. The new colours comprise 12 gloss metallic and six satin formats, with sparkling names such as Atlantis Blue, Fierce Fuchsia and Dragon Fire Red in gloss metallic and Ocean Shimmer, Mystique Blue and Canyon Copper in satin.
3M 1080 is a long-term removable dual-layer premium cast film that has been designed with sufficient rigidity to enable easy handling. The films incorporate a combination of 3M’s unique repositionable Controltac Adhesive with Comply Version 3 Air Release Technologies. These enable the person applying the film to reposition it until the ideal registration has been achieved; and ensure ultimate adhesion and a bubble-free surface finish once pressure has been applied at the final stage of the process.
The films are available in a wide choice of gloss, matte, metallic, satin and brushed metal formats that provide a 'brilliant paint-like finish'. They offer an 'ideal solution for eye-catching vehicle detailing, decoration and full or partial wraps and impart excellent opacity to hide high-contrast surfaces'. A key attribute is the availability of the films in a wider roll width of 1,524mm to enable the seamless wrapping of any section of a vehicle profile without normally visible joins.
3M 1080 Series is available from 3M primary distributors William Smith and Spandex.www.3M.co.uk/graphicsolutions
