3M AutoFilm takes lead at Kuala Lumpur International Motor show
A significant breakthrough by 3M redefines automotive window tint films and taps into the safety aspect of a vehicle. The 3M Nano Safety AutoFilm features a proprietary, patented Multilayer Optical Film (MOF) technology that combines over 200 layers on a film that is thinner than the company’s own Post-it® note! The hundreds of different layers combine to reject different wavelengths of up to 99% UV and 97% Infra-red solar radiation. And it does all this without sacrificing visual clarity as well as enhancing Glare reduction by 55%. Plus, the security aspect of the film deters smash and grab incidents. 3M Nano Safety AutoFilm was inspired by the wings of a butterfly and created with 3M’s specialization in Adhesives, Nano-technology and advanced materials.
Another feast for the eyes was a live demonstration of the 3M Scotchprint Wrap Film Series 1080 on a Range Rover Evoque. The 1080 Series features a variety of finishes, textures and colors including carbon fiber to suit a wide range of enthusiasts who want to stand out from the crowd. This film provides easy installation using pressure-activated adhesives and air-release channels so that you can carefully mold and reposition the film around every nook and cranny of your beloved ride without trapping any air bubbles.
3M Light String was also demo-ed, featuring round, flexible cut-to-length light diffusing strips that produces 360° diffuse lighting for stylized ambient lighting. 3M HAF Cabin Air Filters provide unparalleled air filtration, constructed from an array of open flow channels that are electronically charged for enhanced particle capture and retention while providing better air quality.
Lastly, 3M Thinsulate Acoustic Insulation is a new acoustic absorption mat that provides high efficient acoustic absorption particularly in the mid and high frequencies. Made of lightweight materials, enthusiasts can now enjoy a quieter cabin without incurring a high weight penalty as opposed to traditional damping materials.
