3M adds new colours and finishes to car wrap film series

Colour-change films are becoming increasingly popular to enable even more creative vehicle personalisation. To meet this market trend, 3M has increased the number of colours and finishes in the Scotchprint Car Wrap Film Series 1080 to 39 brilliant formats.

There are now 20 high-quality gloss colours from which to choose, together with further options in matte, brushed metal, carbon fibre and satin black finishes.


The films are highly durable and easy to apply and purposely remove and provide a paint-like finish to solid-colour vehicle detailing, decoration and full vehicle wraps. They also provide excellent opacity when applied to highcontrast surfaces and offer the same superior installation characteristics as 3M's Controltac Graphic Films with Comply Adhesive.

With this advanced adhesive technology, millions of glass spheres embedded in the adhesive surface minimise the initial contact area to enable the film to slide and be repositioned for optimum alignment until firm pressure is applied to complete the application process. The non-visible air-release channels in the adhesive ensure fast and bubble-free results in all situations. The films are available in 60-inch rolls to allow any section of a vehicle to be seamlessly wrapped. Because the films are removable, it is easier to return to the vehicle's original colour or to change the graphics as required.

3M 1080 films are available from 3M primary distributors William Smith and Spandex.
