Changing the installation experience
All 3M™ Wrap Film Series 2080 gloss films have a conformable Protective
Film Layer over the top film surface. The benefits for installers include:
When finishing installations around corners and panel edges, installers should peel the Protective
Film Layer back several inches before tucking and performing their normal finishing.
3M™ Knifeless Tape can easily cut through Series 2080 and the Protective Film Layer, meaning
installers do not need to remove it before doing accenting and finishing cuts.
*Surface impressions are commonly known as; hazing, blotchy and mottled appearance on gloss
Leave on the Protective Film Layer for the entire installation, and remove before post-heating.
For best results with Series 2080, do not over-stretch material when conforming around curvature.
3M does not recommend the use of a torch during installs with Series 2080. Heat guns are far less likely to haze or damage the material’s surface or gloss level. o If hazing occurs, the aid of a heat gun will bring the film back to its original gloss level.
2080 can be installed utilizing the same standard installation techniques as Series 1080 and 1380
3M recommends the use of a slip solution for best results during installation. Some examples of common slip solutions are:
Always post-heat wrap thoroughly after installation to prevent the material from lifting over time.
