3M introduces an affordable, high durability cast film for eye-catching electro cut graphics

3M has announced a new addition to its range of Electrocut Films for varied indoor and outdoor applications

The film’s superior cutting performance makes it ideal for lettering, texts and logos on windows, signs and vehicles

Diversified technology company 3M has announced a new addition to its range of Electrocut Films for varied indoor and outdoor applications such as non-illuminated signs and fascias, vehicle markings and window graphics. Scotchcal Opaque Graphic Film Series 80 from 3M presents converters and signmakers with an excellent quality, highly durable and competitively priced coloured cast film.

Optimised for electrocut conversion, Scotchcal Graphic Film Series 80 is specifically designed for surfaces and substrates including paint, aluminium, glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), acrylic, glass and steel, and conforms to simple curves, rivets and corrugations. Its 50 micron thickness and lay flat paper liner allows for easier handling and superior cutting and weeding performance, which reduces set-up time, waste and labour resources. In addition, the permanent pressure sensitive adhesive enables accurate graphic positioning for optimised installation time and costs. The adhesive’s clear bond presents the same appearance on both sides making it suitable for windows and other glass and acrylic surfaces.

The film has the durability to last up to 10 years and can be removed with heat. It is available in 84 colours, incorporating matt white, matt black, eight metallic colours and a spectrum of the most frequently requested colours. In addition, Pantone references are available on 33 colours.

Scotchcal Graphic Film Series 80 replaces the existing Scotchcal Graphic Film Series 70 as a long-term, cast film in the range. It joins Scotchcal Opaque Graphic Film Series 100, the ultimate premium cast film offering best in quality, performance and durability, and the two promotional, calendered monomeric films for short to medium term applications, Scotchcal Graphic Film Series 50 and Scotchcal Graphic Film Series 30. These are available from 3M primary stockists William Smith and Spandex.
