LIVERY: Two Class 175 and two Class 143 diesel multiple-units operated by KeolisAmey on the Wales & Borders franchise have become the first trainsets to be wrapped with non-PVC Envision Print Wrap LX480mC wrap supplied by 3M and Aura Graphics. 3M Scotchgard 8993 glossy overlaminate and anti-graffiti wrap 8588G provide extra protection for the printed film.

‘Sustainability is a guiding principle for us, so when looking at vinyl options, we took the opportunity to choose a film with better credentials to update the graphics of our fleet’, said Colin Lea, Commercial & Customer Experience Director for Transport for Wales Rail Services. ‘The benign materials and processes used to produce Envision Print Wrap LX480mC from 3M, combined with the film’s outstanding performance and durability, keep our trains looking good for longer and allowed us to choose a less environmentally damaging material.’
