3M Certified Installation
Absolute Perfection is home to Maryland and DC’s only 3M Endorsed Architectural Graphics installers, Chris Fong and Tim Cooke. Chris and Tim flew out to 3M Commercial Graphic’s Headquarters in Minnesota for a week-long training program.
During their stay, Chris and Tim completed DI-NOC installations on a multitude of substrates, ranging from doors and desks to walls and cabinets. With regards to the experience, Chris said, “The idea of DI-NOC installation is to replace the exterior look of preexisting furniture and walls. We learned the many techniques that are used to perform a clean and long-lasting installation as well as the tools used and the differences in each type of film. ”
Our installers were trained on the wide selection of DI-NOC specific tools that are needed to apply the unique film. “One tool in particular is the seam buster. Without this tool, a job that would take 1 hour would take 2,” Tim explained.
Apart from testing on 10+ different substrates, they had to take a written exam as well, which tested their knowledge on all 700 DI-NOC films and the do’s and don’ts of installing them. It’s one thing being able to install DI-NOC, but it’s another to know the necessary conditions of the substrate per each kind of DI-NOC. DI-NOC films are broken down into 9 different styles; each style is produced differently from the factory, requiring different handling and care.
