3M introduces new anti-graffiti surface protection film

Diversified technology company 3M has addressed vandalism and graffiti issues with the introduction of two new over-laminates. Developed specifically for the rail transportation industry, the films have the potential for application to interior and exterior signs and displays and in particular those situated in low-level locations where they could offer protection against damage caused by spray painting, felt tip markers and other methods as well abrasion and environmental degradation.

Scotchgard Graphic and Surface Protection Film 8993 is a gloss over-laminate for interior surfaces available in widths of 48, 54 and 60 inches and in a roll length of 50 metres to enable wider graphic panels to be printed and help reduce material wastage, increase roll efficiency and lower production costs. Scotchgard Graphic and Surface Protection Film 8995-124 is a low-reflective matte over-laminate for interior applications. Available in a roll width of 48 inches, the film helps reduce reflectivity and ensures that brand messages can be read clearly.

These polyester films are highly durable, ensuring graphics remain in pristine condition for the duration of a brand campaign or lifetime. They are designed to withstand harsh solvents that are needed to clean the surface and remove graffiti and other damage. 3M and Scotchgard are trademarks of 3M Company.
