This opaque black carbon film from 3M is ideal for car wrapping. It can be used for creative designs on flat and curved surfaces. This film is also used in decorative and advertising technology, e.g. for vehicle lettering, signage and markings.

It is very dimensionally stable and resistant. Due to its 3D embossed surface, it looks very similar to real carbon.

Please note that the colour reproduction can only serve as a non-binding guide.

Included in delivery

You should definitely order the transfer concentrate, art. no. 020010 additionally. It makes the installation easier and leads to a better result. Alternatively, you can also use a pH-neutral cleaner. This must be pH-neutral to prevent streaks from forming together with the film adhesive!

Any offcuts are not included in the scope of delivery.

Answers to the most frequently asked questions...

General questions

Can I get a free foil sample?

Of course, please click on this link to access the corresponding order form. You are welcome to add to the list of items if you wish. There are no costs for you!

Will you also cut the film for me?

We cut each film to the exact millimetre according to the dimensions you enter. The cutting is free of charge. You can find detailed instructions on how to measure your panes here.

Alternatively, you can also cut your film by hand with a cutter knife. However, this requires a little manual skill, so you are usually better off using our free service.

Can you also cut a round blank or other geometry?

In general, almost all 2D shapes can be produced. Many geometries (e.g. triangles, trapezoids, circles) can be ordered directly via the online shop. To do so, please click on the orange rectangle to the right of the article image. You can then choose between many different shapes.

For shapes that are not specified, please send us a small sketch (photo) in which you specify the side lengths, radii or angles. Please contact us for this purpose.

Does the film also adhere to surfaces other than glass?

The window film adheres to all surfaces that are approximately as smooth as glass. When applying the film to plastic, please bear in mind that the adhesive may bond with the plastic, making it impossible to remove the film cleanly later.

How can I clean my window pane with the film in place?

You can keep your window pane clean as usual. The film should not be rubbed with sharp-edged objects (e.g. a brush).
You can find more information in our guide General care instructions for window films.

Can the film be removed without leaving any residue?

All window films can be removed without leaving any residue and without damaging the glass surface!
Below you will find detailed instructions on how to remove old window films.

Can you also print on films?

Unfortunately, we do not currently offer foil printing and do not have any partner companies with whom we can realise foil printing.

How to mount this film on the window...

Fitting instructions for Carbon films (self-adhesive)


Before bonding the Carbon films, clean the substrate thoroughly for best results.

Cleaning the substrate

In general, the vehicle substrate should be cleaned with conventional cleaning agents. No agents may be used that serve to create a nano-sealing or nano-coating on the substrate to be cleaned by means of nanotechnology.

  • Clean the vehicle in the car wash (brush wash) the day before coating (no hand wash!).
  • Thoroughly check the surfaces and edges for residues of preservative wax or polishes and remove these substances with industrial cleaner or silicone remover (isopropanol alone is not effective).
  • In general, the surfaces to be covered should be cleaned with isopropanol. This will thoroughly remove any residual cleaner used previously (methylated spirits are not recommended here). Dry the vehicle well and blow out any residual moisture, especially under rubber seals, with hot air.


Solvent residues resulting from improper cleaning or paint that is too fresh can cause bubbles to form between the film and the substrate and impair adhesion. Ensure that only fully dried and cured lacquers are applied. A guideline is a minimum drying time of three weeks.

Film bonding

The manufacturer recommends that only material from the same batch be used for application. If material from different batches is nevertheless to be used, the applicator should check whether batch-related differences have an effect on the application of the films and the result.

Test application

After cleaning the vehicle and before each final application, a test application should be carried out and the final adhesion of the film should be checked after 24 hours. For comparison, it is advisable to apply the film to non-critical surfaces (e.g. window panes) at the same time. If the film sticks too strongly and/or if gas bubbles form, repeat the cleaning procedure as described! Proceed in the same way if the adhesive strength is too low (e.g. if the vehicle or vehicle parts were pretreated with agents that advertise a nano sealant / nano coating or nano technology).
If re-cleaning has been carried out, repeat the test bonding as described above.

Required tools

Bonding tool:

  • Film squeegee with felt edge, Art. No. 010150 (not included in delivery)
  • Cutter knife, Art. No. 010050 (not included in delivery, order separately if necessary) or standard scalpel
  • Heat gun (not included in the scope of delivery)

Processing conditions

  • The vehicle must have at least the bonding temperature recommended in the data sheet.
  • Clean and dust-free bright room, preferably with lifting platform or assembly ramp.
  • Power supply

Preparation instructions

  • Measure vehicle parts and generously pre-cut film formats.
  • Trimming of the films takes place on the vehicle. A film width of up to 152 cm allows film to be applied to many vehicles without disturbing lugs or overlaps.
  • The cutting edge is always the edge of the gap adjacent to the part of the vehicle to be covered.
  • Use the resulting overhang of the film in the width of the gap dimension to fold the film over to the interior.
  • Avoid cutting the film flush with the vehicle edges to prevent shrinkage of the film as well as mechanical stresses on the open cut edges caused by washing brushes, airflow, etc.
  • If the film still has to be cut on the vehicle surface, apply siliconised crepe or similar to the cut edge. After cutting, lift the film slightly and remove the masking tape before applying the film.

Bonding procedure

Stone chip protection films are generally to be processed like calendered soft PVC films. Dry application is recommended for experienced users, otherwise wet application is also possible.

Dry bonding

  • Position the film to be applied on the vehicle and fix it with adhesive tape or film remnants.
  • Make sure that the film overlaps the edges of the vehicle part to be applied by approx. 5 cm.
  • Remove the masking paper from the film and stretch the film evenly over the vehicle part.
  • Apply the film to the vehicle in even, sweeping strokes.
  • For curved surfaces (e.g. mudguards), heat the film over a large area with a heat gun. Do not get too close to the film with the heat gun.
  • Do not trim or wrap the edges until the film has cooled down.

Wet bonding

  • Wet application should only be used in the warm season from + 18° C to allow the residual moisture to evaporate quickly and to achieve the required final adhesion.
  • The open side of the pressure-sensitive adhesive and the surface to be bonded are sprayed with depressurised water (water + transfer concentrate). To ensure quicker adhesion of the adhesive, add about 20% isopropanol (not benzine or window cleaner) to the mixture.
  • The film is placed on the surface to be covered. In this phase, the great advantage is that the film cut can be positioned excellently.
  • The film is pressed on with overlapping strokes, making sure that the water is completely wiped out between the substrate and the adhesive.
  • In the case of sheet metal overlaps and butt joints of the bonding substrate, the film must be cut through with a sharp film knife in each case so that the film cannot come loose when the substrate moves.
  • Any cloudiness in the adhesive that occurs after installation disappears Residual moisture has evaporated and the adhesive has reached its final adhesion.

After completion of the work

The vehicle should be at bonding temperature for at least another 24 hours. A slight haze may remain on dark surfaces. After approx. 3 days, the applied film has reached its optimum final adhesion, so that the vehicle can be driven through a car wash without hesitation. The film-coated vehicle must not be treated with polish for at least 3 weeks after coating. Only wax-free, water-based care products for plastic surfaces should be used. Do not clean a film-coated vehicle with high-pressure cleaners or corrosive chemicals.


The prerequisite for removability of the films is a substrate and ambient temperature of at least +20° C. The films should be carefully wiped at one corner with a cloth. The films should be carefully loosened at one corner with the help of a knife and slowly peeled off at an angle of 180°. Heating the film at the same time with a hot air blower makes the removal process much easier. In the case of very old films, some adhesive residues may remain on the substrate. These can easily be removed with an adhesive remover.
These processing instructions are based on our knowledge and experience. Not all aspects that need to be taken into account for bonding are explained. The specialist knowledge and skills of an advertising technician or bonder are assumed. Due to the large number of possible influences during processing, bonding and use, we recommend that you test our products in your own trials for special applications. The assumption of a guarantee for the existence of certain properties cannot be derived from our information.

Bei dieser Firma können können sich "Marktbegleiter" mehr als 1 Scheibe abschneiden!

Auch wenn ich vorab lediglich ein kleines Probestück gekauft habe, wurde ich zuvorkommend wie ein Großkunde behandelt.
Die Korrespondenz war sehr gut - schnell und kompetent!
Mein Test mit dem Probestück viel zu 100% positiv aus, sodass ich nun bedenkenlos den "Hauptbrocken" bestellen werde.
Kurzum: Mit den max. 5 Sternen ist nur annähernd meine Zufriedenheit ausgedrückt.

Erster Shop, der Zuschnitte verschickt!

Erst habe ich bei Am… gesucht und die letzte Rotzfolie bekommen. Ich brauchte nur 30*15cm und wollte nicht direkt eine ganze Rolle kaufen.. zum Glück kann ich bei Velken Zuschnitte bestellen! Das war perfekt für mein Motorad! Zu 3m Folien braucht man an sich nicht viel schreiben… das funktioniert immer und ist einfach top!
