Colour change vehicle wraps carried out by Glasgow, UK-based Clyde Wraps have boosted car sales at a local Mercedes-Benz dealership, providing a perfect example of the benefits that can be gained with car wraps.

Clyde Wraps’ managing director, Gordon Clyde explains, “We were contacted by the dealership as they had a gloss black Mercedes CL in their showroom that was not attracting buyers.  We converted it to a metallic finish using 3M 1080 Series Matte Blue Metallic wrapping film. This showed off the elegant lines of the vehicle to better advantage, giving it added class, and it sold very quickly following the wrap.”

As a result, Clyde Wraps was asked by the dealership to wrap another Mercedes CL, for which 3M 1080 Series Brushed Titanium was used.

“1080 Series is easy to apply and gives a really nice finish,” says Mr. Clyde. “We find it much better to work with than other materials we have used.”

3M 1080 Series is a long term, removable dual cast film that has been designed with sufficient rigidity to allow easy handling without the need for application tape.  Featuring 3M’s Controltac Comply pressure-activated adhesive, 1080 Series is easy to reposition and ready to use straight from the box. With up to six years durability, these films offer excellent opacity and are highly weather resistant. 1080 Series is suitable for flat surfaces and simple curves.

Mr. Clyde concludes, “We have been using 3M materials for some time. The quality of the materials, together with the good back-up from William Smith gives us confidence in the products.”

3M 1080 Series is available from William Smith, ex-stock,  as full, part or custom slit rolls and same day despatch is provided on full or part roll orders received up to 6.00pm.
