Las Vegas, NV – On October 4th, 3M announced that it would be conducting a Bumper Wrap Contest at the Specialty Graphics Imaging Association’s (SGIA) annual tradeshow in Vegas on the 13-15 this month.  Our lead installer, Keoni Denison, went out to attend the UASG’s annual meeting and stay for the tradeshow.  He entered into the competition on October 13th and finished with the overall highest score..

The test was to wrap a HHR bumper with 3M’s new Wrap Material 3M Controltac film with Comply™ v3 IJ380C with 8580 Gloss over laminate.  This is a fantastic product and indispensable for many applications, such as HHR and Sprinters being the key notoriously difficult installations for vehicle wraps.

The HHR bumpers have always represented one of the hardest installation in the market and he has been installing the bumpers in one piece prior to the release of IJ380 using the industry standard IJ180C product.

While he didn’t have the overall fastest time and was beat out by 15 seconds, he completed the flawless test in 11:02 minutes with zero defects to achieve the highest score.  This score based on time and quality was not beaten during the next two days.

We are glad to have Keoni join our team in August this year and he will be a valuable asset to the installation team.  He will be heading up the Carolinas Division as he will be headquartered out of Raleigh, NC.  Congratulations Keoni, nice job.
