Graphics manufacturers can offer top quality films to show- case their customer's brand and create striking messages. The only high-performance cast vinyl perforated films on the market, the new products are the most ver- satile window films available, giving graphics manufacturers the option to print cross- platform—including UV, latex, solvent ink jet and screen printing. The 4-mil cast vinyl films lay flat during printing and do not lift around simple and mild compound curved windows. They provide better lifting resistance than calendered vinyl films, while maintaining easy handling for installation and removal. Both are backed by the 3M MCS Warranty and 3M Performance Guarantee, giving users added confidence in their industry- leading capabilities for long-term brand market- ing.
