3M™ Controltac™ Graphic Film Series 180
High-performance, cast vinyl for durable and demanding applications
3MTM ControltacTM Graphic Film Series 180 is a glossy, dimensionally stable, colourfast and exceptionally weather-proof vinyl range.
These features make the 180 series the ideal candidate for demanding applications where only the best and most durable product will suffice.
It is ideal for vehicle and public transport advertising, including rail cars, emblems, labels, graphic striping and industrial applications.
This film is perfect for flat and corrugated surfaces with and without rivets, simple curves and moderate compound curves.
The unique grey adhesive has a layer of microscopic glass spheres that allow the film to be positioned and repositioned during application to almost any surface. When pressure is applied to the film, the glass spheres are pressure-activated into the adhesive giving an instant high bond.
