'Punchy Roller' created with the help 3M 1080 Series and William Smith

Rolls Royce wrapped in 3M filmPremier Vehicle Wrapping were able to create a distinctive vehicle wrap to meet some very particular customer requirements, by using 3M's 1080 Series wrapping film, with additional help from William Smith.

Premier Vehicle Wrapping, who specialise in full wraps for prestige cars, was asked to create a colour change wrap to a Rolls Royce Ghost that would liven up the appearance of the vehicle.

3M 1080 Series Aluminium White was chosen for the roof, bonnet, boot and window area of the car. But the specific shade of metallic purple requested by the customer for the lower part of the vehicle could not be found in any vehicle wrap material range.

To create the desired effect, William Smith printed the required shade of metallic purple onto 1080 Series Aluminium White.
"It was a really good print job," says Premier Vehicle Wrapping's Daniel Brown. "It worked extremely well."
The wrap was finished with gloss overlaminate. "Our client was really impressed as it gave the appearance of a paint finish," said Daniel.

William Smith has been a main supplier to Premier Vehicle Wrapping for several years, providing both materials and print. 3M 1080 Series is available from William Smith, ex-stock, as full, part or custom slit rolls and same day despatch is provided on full or part roll orders received up to 6.00pm.

3M 1080 Series is a long term, removable dual cast film that has been designed with sufficient rigidity to allow easy handling without the need for application tape. Featuring 3M's Controltac Comply pressure-activated adhesive, it is easy to reposition and ready to use straight from the box. With up to six years durability, these films offer 'excellent opacity' and are highly weather resistant. 1080 Series is suitable for flat surfaces and simple curves.

"I'm very impressed with 3M materials and always advise our customers to use these," said Daniel. "1080 Series is very easy to use and really good quality. I can trust it and know that it will stay in place."
