3M introduces value-priced film for vehicle wraps

3M wrapped sports carA new film developed specifically for less demanding applications but where cost is a deciding factor has been introduced by 3M Commercial Graphics. Called Controltac Graphic Film with Comply Version 3 Adhesive IJ170Cv3-10, the white film has excellent hiding power capabilities, is extremely versatile, stable and easy to apply without bubbles or creasing, making it an ideal choice for applications such as vehicle wraps and outdoor and indoor signs and displays.

A key component of the film is the Comply Version 3 Adhesive that incorporates air release channels to enable fast and precise positioning of the film. Visually stunning graphics with no show through can be achieved, as the grey, pigmented adhesive has a superb concealing quality. The film also offers excellent adhesion to flat or moderately curved surfaces without edge lifting, shrinking or cracking.

As the film has no curing time, vehicle downtime is kept to a minimum and a fast turnaround on graphics can be achieved. Controltac Graphic Film with Comply Version 3 Adhesive IJ170Cv3 offers a high level of resistance to water, mild acids and alkalis and salt and can be purposely removed quickly without any residue by the simple application of heat. The film is compatible with the 3M Scotchcal 8580 over laminate film.

Both products are available from 3M primary stockists William Smith and Spandex.
