Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use an overlaminate?
Applying 3M™ Wrap Overlaminate Series 8900 can alter the appearance of film series 1080’s inherent texture. If a different graphic protection other than 3M™ Wrap Overlaminate Series 8900 is used, then the wrap shop assumes all risk for testing, approving, suitability, and warranty.
Can I print on film series 1080?
Film series 1080 is available in many colors, textures, and finishes and is intended to be used without further processing. If the film is printed, with or without graphic protection, the wrap shop assumes all risk for testing, approving, suitability, and warranty.
Is the striped appearance in carbon fiber films typical?
Yes. All film in series 1080 have some texture that is integral in creating these unique looks. The carbon fiber films have the most texture, which appears to have more depth or texture in certain lighting conditions, giving a somewhat striped look.
Do application directions change color appearance?
Yes. Certain film colors, such as Satin Pearl White and the Brushed Metal colors, have a directional characteristic in their appearance. For the best overall appearance, do not alternate between lengthwise and widthwise graphic panels. Also, film colors can vary slightly from lot-to-lot. For the most consistent looking color, use the same lot number of film for an entire vehicle.
Can I apply film series 1080 to an older, rusted or repaired vehicle?
All wrap films, including film series 1080, should be applied to a “like new” vehicle finish for the best results. 3M’s warranty only applies to vehicles that have an excellent bond of the paint and its finish to the vehicle substrate. Any rust, bubbling, scratches, dents or other damage will be visible through the film, and such surface imperfections may damage the film or cause the film to fail prematurely. Areas repaired with body filler must be sanded, epoxy primed and finished with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) paint or clear coat. Any recently applied finish must be cured for the full amount of time recommended by the paint manufacturer before applying film.
How do I remove fingerprints, stains and scratches?
Fingerprints: The matte finish films may show fingerprints, but they can be cleaned off after the installation is complete by saturating a clean, lint-free towel with a 2:1 mixture of Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and water or 70% IPA, and then wiping and drying the film. Stains: Try a household cleaner, such as SimpleGreen®, and a lint-free cloth, followed by the technique used for removing fingerprints (found above). Scratches: Many surface scratches will disappear when exposed to the sunlight on warm days. Otherwise, surface scratches may be removed by:
  • using a 2:1 mixture of Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and water or 70% IPA.
  • by heating the film surface with a heat gun. Typically, do not exceed 225 °F (107 °C).
Deeper scratches will not come out. Always use care to avoid scratches during installation, maintenance, use and storage of the wrapped vehicle.
What if I want/need to remove the wrap? Will it cause any damage?
3M recommends that film be removed by a wrap professional. Film series 1080 is removable for up to 3 years after installation, providing the film has not been printed and no overlaminate has been applied. Heat and/or chemicals may be required. Some adhesive residue may be left on the vehicle, which can be easily cleaned off with a product such as 3M™ Citrus Base Cleaner. When used, applied, maintained, and removed according to 3M’s instructions and within the product’s 3M warranty period, film series 1080 should not damage an OEM paint finish upon removal.
