Spandex is launching the “next generation” wrap film from 3M that introduces updated technology for colour change vehicle wraps. Building on the success of the 3M Wrap Film Series 1080 range, the 2080 gloss films have a protective layer positioned over the surface (gloss only) to reduces the potential for imperfections during transportation and installation.
Removed easily after application to reveal “a perfect finish”, installers and vehicle owners are reassured that any scratches made to the protective layer will not transfer to the film itself. The film’s conformability has been improved so that it can be easily applied around curves and in channels, resulting in a sleeker appearance and ease of installation.
All colours of the new film have an increased durability of up to eight years depending on the region where the material is used. This gives the user one product with one warranty, no matter their choice of colour or finish. The 3M Wrap Film Series 2080 comprises 40 colours including standard, premium and flip choices. The range includes 3M’s Controltac™ and Comply™ adhesive technology, which reduces application time by improving repositionability and slideability of the film; all are available now at a 152.4cm width.
General manager Leon Watson says: “The 3M Wrap Film Series 2080 is the result of extensive research and design inspired by customer feedback. By adding new protective layers, improving conformability and increasing the durability of the original Wrap Film Series 1080, 3M has delivered a quality wrap range, designed for users. We’re looking forward to seeing the response it will generate from customers.”
