ST. PAUL, Minn. – 3M continues to lead the industry with the introduction of a new high-performance, non-PVC wrap film designed for solvent/eco-solvent printing and a luster overlaminate.  3M™ Envision™ Wrap Films – which includes two print wrap films and two overlaminates – offer the only high performing, non-PVC suite of films on the market.  The suite is now 100% compatible with all printers – UV, Solvent and Latex.

“Whether you’re trying to wrap vehicles, trailers, boats, textured buildings or smooth walls, 3M Envision Wrap Films can wrap just about anything,” said Alan Miller, 3M Commercial Solutions, Tech Services. “One of the greatest advantages of these products is the reduced inventory for the customer.  No need to carry multiple printable films for specific applications, one of these printable films is all you need.”
 
3M continues to revolutionize wrap films with a breakthrough boost in attributes such as:
  • Highly conformable: 3M Envision Wrap Films are conformable on demand, stretching up to 150% without lifting – and without primer.
  • Install in extreme temps: When it’s warm the films won’t get too soft or stretch too easily – for an install that’s 16% faster*. In cool weather, they maintain a soft feel and won’t tear. Just apply heat to conform on demand.
  • Faster removal: Unlike cast vinyl – which can be more brittle and prone to tearing – these films feature greater tensile strength, so they resist tearing for faster, cleaner removal.
  • Extremely durable: 3M Envision Wrap Films guard against UV rays, high temperatures, moisture and even acid dew – especially in horizontal and non-vertical applications.
“We like Envision Wrap Films because they make the install much easier. They simply outperform all other materials and the printed colors are more vibrant,” says Shawn Donovan, sales representative, Grafix Shoppe. “It’s our go-to product.”
 
3M EnvisionWrap Films allow you to go greener without sacrificing performance or good looks. They are:
  • Non-PVC
  • Phthalate-free
  • Made in part with bio-based materials**
  • Manufactured using 58% less solvent
  • Made without chlorine or other halogens added
"We are proud that 3M Envision Wrap Films are able to offer all graphic printers and installers best-in-class technology with a sustainable edge," states Tim Boxeth, Business Manager, 3M. “With evolving customer needs, expanding the 3M Envision Wrap Film portfolio gives graphic manufacturers the power to align their business with their customers’ sustainability initiatives and offer an eco-friendlier graphic solution.”
