All 3M products on display incorporate innovative pressure-activated Controltac Graphic Film with Comply Adhesive Technology, the former of which contains microscopic glass beads that lie on the surface of the adhesive, in turn enabling the film to be repositioned on the substrate until the required positioning is achieved.

Comply Adhesive Technology is a network of non-visible air release channels that allow air to be dispersed from underneath the film, which 3M says helps to ensure a smooth and bubble-free application.
