3M brings BTCC to Goodwood

3M has expanded its presence at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, taking place from 23-26 June.

Visitors to its stand will have the chance to see a British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) car up close, meet special guests/drivers like BTCC driver Kelvin Fletcher, and view live demos of car wrapping, polishing and car care using the latest products.

The stand will feature cars that have been wrapped using vinyl film. By using a range of different colour change and printable films, each wrap will provide an insight into the ease with which a car can be personalised.

The company will also showcase its range of car wrapping products including the recently announced 3M Wrap Film Series 1380, which provides vehicle wrappers with conformability and enables application into deeply recessed areas without requiring cutting or inlays.

Increased opacity to improve the colour brilliance and prevent the substrate colour from showing through, and a durable transparent top coat gives added protection and resistance against the weather and scratches whilst enhancing the overall appearance. Other films on show include Controltac Graphic Film IJ180, Envision Print Wrap Film IJ480 and the Wrap Film Series 1080.

Meanwhile, making its debut appearance at Goodwood is the new Cubitron II Products Range of abrasive technology from 3M. Live demonstrations will show how the precision-shaped ceramic abrasive grains act like a cutting tool, continually self-sharpening to allow abrasive belts, sheets, sanding discs and bonded abrasive wheels to run cooler and keep on working.

The latest addition to the 3M Premium Abrasives Range will also be launched at Goodwood, the Hookit Blue Multihole Discs. Using engineered ceramic grain for a faster cut and longer life, the discs feature innovative spiral multihole technology for superior dust extraction when used with the range of universal back-up pads from 3M.

Other demonstrations include the Perfect-It III Colour-Coded Compounding Range from 3M, designed to enable virtually all paint defect rectification to be carried out with ease and confidence. The 3M Paint Defect Removal Hand System will also be available, allowing the removal of dirt nibs and other paint defects while minimising the repair area size, saving time and money.
