3M Film Series 1080 Chosen by Enthusiasts & Installers

3M™ Scotchprint® Wrap Film Series 1080, an industry favorite for vehicle customization, was on display in full force at this year's SEMA show. With thirty-nine unique styles to choose from, dozens of cars across the showroom will boast a variety of colors, textures and patterns. Attendees will see firsthand how these films can be layered into sleek graphics to suit every taste and style.

3M hosted live demos and installs on a Fisker Karma in their booth (#12227, North Hall) where they showcased a unique wrap scheme every twenty-four hours. The designs were developed with designers from Fisker Automotive, with whom 3M recently partnered to develop and supply its Fisker Diamond Protection Film. Schemes included:

"October Sun" – Gloss Burnt Orange and Brushed Black Metallic commemorates the fall season;

"Riverside" – Matte White and Gloss Blue Metallic racing stripes are a nod to American racing heritage;

"Classic" – Hot Rod Red red with a bold, Brushed Aluminum-trimmed Gloss Black stripe honors the great American custom car scene; and

"Onward" – Satin Black and Gloss Burnt Orange reflect Fisker's new brand look and feel.

With twenty high-gloss colors, nine matte options, six brushed metal finishes, three carbon-fiber designs, and one satin finish, these distinctive films offer endless design possibilities from complex, multi-layered finishes to simple, one-color designs.

"Working with a multitude of such diverse install shops and partners is a great chance to not only generate awareness for the vast design options available using the 3M Wrap Film Series 1080, but keep us at the advent of burgeoning design trends and industry innovations that allow us to continue to enhance our film offerings to suit the needs, tastes, and unique styles of our consumer," said Doug Blackwell, business development manager, 3M Commercial Graphics Division.

3MWrap Film Series 1080 features dual cast film specifically designed to provide better dimensional stability and protection without the need for an overlaminate.  The pressure-activated adhesive allows you to slide and reposition the film until firm pressure is applied.  The non-visible air release channels assure a fast, easy and virtually bubble-free installation, while a sixty-inch film width makes it possible to wrap almost any section of the vehicle without creating seams.
