3M predicts the future with Envision

3M has unveiled its vision for the future of the graphic sector’s intermediate market, which it predicts, will lie in high-performance non-PVC films. Accordingly, it is planning to significantly increase its focus on the Envision 48 and 48C ranges of print films, while also maintaining its complete range of intermediate films too.

When launched in 2012, the Envision series became the world’s first range of high-performing non-PVC films, thus marking 3M as a pioneer in this field.

Subsequent innovations have enabled the company to add a new generation of non-PVC films to this series, including the Envision 48 and 48C ranges of print films.

3M technical specialist Tim Beyer said: “Demand for sustainable print films is rising as brand owners and their customers focus increasingly on their environmental credentials.

“There was a time when using these products meant sacrificing quality. However, through continuous research and innovation, 3M has turned the tables on this.

“As a result of these breakthroughs, we believe high-performance non-PVC films are the future of the intermediate graphics market.

“We will, therefore, renew our focus on this exciting field, through continuing innovation and investment, without diverting any attention from our premium graphics offering.”

The Envision 48 and 48C ranges of print films by 3M are suitable for the broad spectrum of indoor and outdoor applications, ranging from exhibition graphics and corporate signage to fleet graphics and other partial vehicle wraps.

The ranges include products that feature 3M’s Controltac and Comply technologies, which facilitate easy and bubble-free application, respectively. The films are also tough, flexible and easy to remove.

Furthermore, both ranges are compatible with digital printing using solvent, UV and Latex ink technologies, plus and solvent and UV screenprinting technologies.

The products also come with the 3M’s MCS warranty, the industry’s most comprehensive cover.
