Can the film damage my car's paint?

  • 3M car wrapping films are tested for compatibility with many of the commonly used paint systems in the automotive industry. Decades of experience show that our adhesives typically don’t chemically react with the paint. However, there are some points to consider to ensure the paint remains unaffected;

    • Paint must be completely dry prior to the application of graphic films
    • Improper paint repair can have low tack to the car body, meaning that some may be pulled off along with the film on removal

    Something to note however is that when your car paint is covered by a graphic film, it is better protected against UV rays, dirt and other mechanical impact than the unvovered areas. So it may be necessary to polish the car to bring both the previously wrapped part and unwrapped part to the same finish.
