)-- 3M Carbon Fiber Automotive Finishes, exhibited by Interior Design Solutions (www.idsfinishes.com) at SEMA, won one of the Show’s Global Media Awards for Best New Product.
Interior Design Solutions (IDS) recently exhibited a new-to-the-US product manufactured by 3M Company – 3M Carbon Fiber Automotive Finishes.
Carbon Fiber, known for its aesthetics and weight-saving nature, is a popular automotive trend. An automobile’s stock hood, roof, and trunk can be replaced with a carbon fiber alternative to reduce the car’s weight, thus enhancing its performance. But carbon fiber aftermarket parts can be costly. However, those seeking the look of carbon fiber without requiring the weight savings may turn to 3M Carbon Fiber Automotive Finishes as a less expensive solution. They are vinyl films that simulate the look of carbon fiber at a fraction of the price. Installed on hoods, roofs, trunks, and interior pieces, they are a flexible self-adhering vinyl that can be applied to any flat and non-porous surface. Above all, it even has texture like the real thing.
