Introducing the Newest Addition to 3M™ Scotchprint® Wrap Film Series 1080: Brushed Black Metallic

Distinct color and texture combination selected by Facebook fans in Wrap Battle: 1080

St. Paul, MN. - January 03, 2012 - 3M Commercial Graphics announces the introduction of a stunning new color/finish combination to its 3M™ Scotchprint® Wrap Film Series 1080 —Brushed Black Metallic. The unique film color was selected in the recent Wrap Battle: 1080 contest, which asked fans of the product to vote for their favorite new color and finish on Facebook. More than 500 fans of 3M Commercial Graphics cast their votes, with Brushed Black Metallic emerging as the clear winner among the nine contenders.

“The Brushed Black Metallic film creates a very tough, aggressive look that really pops in the light," said Shareef Khan, CEO of SS Customs, a leading custom wrap shop based in Redwood City, Calif. “I've used metalized films from other companies in the past, and they don't have anywhere near as much flexibility or stretchability as Scotchprint Wrap Film Series 1080. We really appreciate the research and development that 3M puts into their films. You can see in the way that it performs, the way it adheres, and the way the air releases that 3M utilizes the most advanced technology.”

With this new addition, Scotchprint Wrap Film Series 1080 now has 34 head-turning films in carbon fiber, brushed metal, matte and high gloss. As fans of the product know, film series 1080 makes a distinctive statement, providing industry-leading features and benefits that allow users to get the look just right, each and every time.

The long-term, removable cast films offer the same great installation features found on 3M™ Controltac™ Graphic Films with Comply™ Adhesive. The product’s pressure-activated adhesive allows it to slide and be repositioned until firm pressure is applied, with non-visible air release channels that assure fast, easy, and virtually bubble-free installations. Its 60 inch width means that users can wrap almost any section of a vehicle without seams, and the film remains removable for up to three years, making it easy to change looks. The film is also backed by the industry leading 3M™ MCS Warranty.
