“Whether you’re trying to wrap vehicles, trailers, boats, textured buildings or smooth walls, 3M Envision Wrap Films can wrap just about anything,” said Alan Miller, 3M Commercial Solutions, Tech Services. “One of the greatest advantages of these products is the reduced inventory for the customer. No need to carry multiple printable films for specific applications, one of these printable films is all you need.”

3M continues to revolutionize wrap films with a breakthrough boost in attributes such as:

• Highly conformable: 3M Envision Wrap Films are conformable on demand, stretching up to 150 percent without lifting—and without primer.

• Install in extreme temps: When it’s warm, the films won’t get too soft or stretch too easily—for an install that’s 16 percent faster*. In cool weather, they maintain a soft feel and won’t tear. Just apply heat to conform on demand.

• Faster removal: Unlike cast vinyl—which can be more brittle and prone to tearing—these films feature greater tensile strength, so they resist tearing for faster, cleaner removal.

• Extremely durable: 3M Envision Wrap Films guard against UV rays, high temperatures, moisture, and even acid dew—especially in horizontal and non-vertical applications.

“We like Envision Wrap Films because they make the install much easier. They simply outperform all other materials and the printed colors are more vibrant,” says Shawn Donovan, sales representative, Grafix Shoppe. “It’s our go-to product.”
