3M Wrap Film Series 1080
Anything But Ordinary

3M 1080 Series Gloss Silver Chome GC451 Vinyl is a cast film specifically designed for vehicle application to provide dimensional stability and durability without the need for an overlaminate. The pressure-activated adhesive allows you to slide and reposition the film over the surface of the vehicle until you apply firm pressure. 3M 1080 Chrome is available in 60in widths making it possible to wrap virtually any section of a vehicle without seams. The non-visible air release channels assure a fast, easy and virtually bubble-free installation when professionally installed. Saving valuable installation time.

3M Wrap Film Series 1080 GC451 Gloss Silver Chrome Vinyl Wrapping Film is an automotive wrap film with a chrome mirror-like finish. 3M 1080-GC451 Chrome requires special installation considerations relative to typical cast vinyl wraps. Proper techniques are needed to achieve the desired mirror-like appearance. Heating, cold stretching, and knowing when to take the liner off & when to leave it on are some of the factors that will be helpful in the installation. IR-lamps and electric Heat Guns are the ONLY recommended heat sources to be used during installation. Using a torch can damage the film. Like vinyl, avoid overheating and overstretching as the film’s appearance will be negatively affected.

  • Not recommended for saltwater applications.
  • The protective sheet must be removed prior to heating or stretching.
  • Overheating or overstretching can permanently alter the film's appearance (making its mirror-like finish appear cloudy)

5 of 5 Chrome Vinyl Wrap September 2, 2019
Reviewer: James Parrish from Houston, TX United States  
I’ve not yet finished, but am very impressed with the speed of delivery and quality of the product.
I am wrapping an RV bumper and the headlight covers. The bumper is about 4’ x 16” and the headlight covers are 2 1/2’ x 16”. The bumper and covers are molded plastic and chroming companies will not accept them. Long story, but I damaged them with Aircraft Adhesive Remover trying to remove a plastic film sheet. The Adhesive Remover is supposed to be left on the plastic film for 5 minutes before starting the film removal. It dripped onto the bumper. Before I could get it off, it  melted and ate right into the bumper.
Since these are pretty light in weight and off the vehicle, it is slow going working by myself. Stretching the wrap while holding the piece in place is a challenge.
Looking forward to the completed job!
