3M Wrap Film Series 1080 Tops 100 Colors

Meanwhile, 3M is expanding graphics installers’ arsenals by adding eight new colors to the 3M Wrap Film Series 1080 family, bringing the color total to 106 options, according to the company.

Showcasing gloss, satin and color-flip finishes, the new class of 3M wrap colors includes Gloss Blue Fire, Matrix Black, Satin Flip Ghost Pearl, Dead Matte Black, Shadow Black, Satin Key West, Gloss Galaxy Black and Gloss Glacier Gray.

With so many variations on shades of black, grey and white, graphics installers will more easily be able to replicate the images in their minds and bring them to life, according to 3M.

“We know the reputations of graphics installers hinge on their abilities to create designs that break the mold. We work hard to consistently develop and deliver new 3M car wrap colors that will catapult them ahead of the competition,” said Janelle Pizzi, marketing for 3M. “Our goal is to supply installers with the products they need to wow their clients at every turn.”

3M also announced that Gloss Plum Explosion is once again available for purchase.

3M Wrap Film Series 1080 is made in 60-inch rolls, eliminating the need for seams by easily covering vehicle sections. 3M also recently added a new feature to the back of the film liner: An arrow emblem indicating web directionality to ensure correct and consistent install, according to the company.
