A High-Performance, Low-Gloss OEM Film for Reduced Bubbling
An excellent alternative to automotive paint and paint processes, our 3M™ Paint Replacement Film FUS1007 is developed for a range of interior and exterior automotive applications. Durable, conformable 5 mil polyvinyl chloride (PVC) film resists scratches and weathering, and provides a low-gloss (30% reflectivity) black appearance that meets stringent OEM automotive design requirements. The modified acrylic adhesive is pressure-sensitive for reduced cycle times, and delivers very high final adhesion and shear performance to a range of automotive surfaces even under extreme environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature changes. A recyclable polycoated lay flat paper liner provides fast and easy release. Pre-masked and die-cut parts are available as well.
A Paint Replacement Film for Lower Cycle Times
3M™ Paint Replacement Film FUS1007 eliminates the paint process and cumbersome masking and de-masking, reducing reject levels and production costs. The air-bleedable feature of the adhesive layer has been designed for air bubble free application of the blackout film while still providing strong, reliable adhesion under extreme conditions of environmental stress such as climatic change and humidity cycling. The special release liner features a structured pattern which it imparts into the adhesive. This pattern creates microchannels in the adhesive, which allow air to escape at the film edges. This feature reduces the chance of bubbling, and allows for faster removal of any remaining bubbles without air release tools. This automotive paint replacement film is available in pre-masked, die-cut parts for fast, efficient application.
