3M™ Interior Trim Film - Relief Metal Graphical Series is a relief, graphical and metallic, color-customizable series of films for covering automotive interior trim parts. These films offer the following benefits:
Elongation properties allow for the film to wrap around the back side of the component, which can provide additional protection to the component at the parting line.
Has the ability to provide a 3D appearance and maintain the integrity of pattern when elongated across the component
300% film elongation, property coupled with a unique application process (dual vacuum thermoforming) allow for the design of more complex geometric components
Application by the dual vacuum thermoforming (DVT) process enhances the overall look and feel of the film on the part by retaining design appearance and texture during the entire process.
Has the ability to provide a fine relief on the surface which creates a touchable feeling; the deep and distinct texture is maintained after elongation and application to the component.
Real metal within the film results in an authentic appearance and feel of metals, such as aluminum and stainless
Enables easy tuning of color and gloss for a wide variety of colors
Versatility contributes to changing the finish easily according to the trim levels to meet regional needs.
The texture, printing and color can be combined to create a wide variety of finishes. In most cases, 3M Interior Trim Films are supplied in custom finishes developed jointly by 3M and the OEM design studio for a particular model.
