Similar to competing in extreme sports, it’s the rush of adrenaline that keeps successful wrap shops and installers coming back for more. From the most eye-popping of wall graphics to the sleekest of vehicle wraps, no wrapper can achieve optimal performance without the right wrap film and adhesive. That is why 3M is excited to announce the launch of 3M™ Print Wrap Film IJ180mC-10. Featuring the many high-quality benefits of Comply™ Adhesive with micro technology, these 3M IJ180mC films will accelerate installation and provide even more design options, making them the ideal solution for any application, including vehicles, boats, walls and more.
3M Print Wrap Film IJ180mC-10 provides customers with a go-to film that covers all the bases of application needs. With advanced slideability and initial tack optimized for wraps, installers will be able to move the film effortlessly across any application surface and expertly reposition the product to the perfect location after first contact. Along with improved liner release and the ability to stretch 130 percent without primer, IJ180mC-10 also provides a non-visible comply pattern to ensure a smooth, bubble-free finish to a completed wrap.
“With the resoundingly positive response we’ve received from graphics installers regarding Comply Adhesive with micro technology, we knew the next step would be to incorporate the innovation into our IJ180 line,” said Tim Boxeth, marketing manager, 3M Commercial Solutions Division. “Offering incredible installation features and diverse application and design benefits, IJ180mC provides wrap shops and installers with a product that is fine tuned for wraps, regardless of the project type.”
The launch of 3M Print Wrap Film IJ180mC-10 also includes the introduction of clear and metallic options – 3M™ Print Wrap Film IJ180mC-114 and 3M™ Print Wrap Film IJ180mC-120. These additions bolster the versatility of the IJ180mC family, offering wrap shops the ability to craft never been done before wraps with the clear IJ180mC-114, and shimmering accents and bold statements with the metallic IJ180mC-120.
Recently in Phoenix, Ariz., Fast-Trac Designs was given one of the first opportunities to put IJ180mC-120 into action, successfully wrapping two Nissan Frontiers for a leading client.
“The new 3M Print Wrap Film IJ180mC-10 features incredible ease of installation, and goes anywhere we need it to go during application,” said Jody Frego, director of operations for Fast-Trac Designs. “By combining the many high-quality features we’ve come to rely on from 3M products with the excellent application abilities from Comply Adhesive with micro technology, IJ180mC will decrease our installation time, leading to quicker turnarounds and happier customers.”
“In the past we’ve mostly stayed away from metallic options because we didn’t trust the long-term application of competitors’ films, but thanks to 3M’s proven quality, we’re excited to use IJ180mC-120,” said Frego.
3M Print Wrap Film IJ180mC films are available in 48”, 54” and 60”-wide rolls, so wrappers can easily cover vehicle sections without seams. Finally, backing by the 3M™ MCS™ Warranty or 3M Performance Guarantee gives wrappers peace-of-mind that the films will live up to their guarantees.
