New optically clear printable film released by 3M New Zealand

A clear advantage which opens up new possibilities for the future – in architecture, shop design or advertising on vehicles.

The new 3M™ Scotchcal™ Clear View printable film 8150 can be used in many ways on and inside buildings, enabling architects and shop-fitters to implement creative design ideas for new and existing glass surfaces. It allows creativity and offers innovative, high-performance solutions for glass design using graphics, text and special effects. It also offers a great solution for public transport advertising. Despite its hard-wearing qualities, it can be easily removed when no longer required.

Ideal uses:

Interior Glass Graphics

  • creation of individual designs for glass doors, dividing walls, partitions, showcases and mirrored surfaces
  • whether for purely decorative or for functional purposes such as ensuring privacy or signage

Window Advertising

  • can be used in many ways on and inside buildings
  • allowing creative design ideas for glass surface - for example on facades or shop windows
  • glass decoration & advertisement onto commercial refrigerators

Vehicle Graphics

  • complete wrapping of vehicles, including the windows
  • new possibilities for advertising on buses and trams
  • usage of curved rear windscreens of taxis and fleet vehicles

The one-way vision which is desirable in public transport advertising can be achieved with the help of a printed hole matrix, without the need to perforate the film.

Key Features

  • a cast, highly transparent and conformable graphic film with a special PET liner
  • compatible with all digital and screen-printing systems
  • removable adhesive
  • wet application for easy application and positioning
  • durability of 7 years

Key Benefits

  • any design can be perfectly reproduced, while unprinted areas allow a perfectly clear view through the glass
  • no contour cutting of the printed graphic anymore: the printed area is an integral part of the film, which is applied in its entirety.
  • colour gradients and special effect printing, like dusted and frosted crystal, can easily be produced.
  • One-Way-Vision graphics can be easily produced without using the perforated film. Just choose and print the dot-pattern of choice.
  • the high degree of conformability of the film and the innovative 3M adhesive system enable easy and fast application even on contoured or curved surfaces such as windscreens
