Use this durable, positionable vinyl film to create commercial vehicle or fleet markings (including rail cars), emblems, striping, labels and general signage ­ both indoors and out.

Film series 180 is especially well suited for large graphics because it features 3M's patented pressure-activated adhesive, making it easier to reposition graphics until firm pressure is applied during installation. The film’s exceptional durability characteristics make it ideal for long-term graphic applications.

When used with compatible products, produced by one of 3M's Scotchprint® Graphics Authorized Manufacturers and applied according to written instructions, this film can be used to produce a Scotchprint® Graphic.
