In order to use a car wrap to promote your brand, it’s important to keep rust from forming on your vehicle. If there are gaps that allow water to get in underneath your car wrap, it can create an environment that’s ripe for rust development.

Not only is rust unsightly, but it can cause serious damage to the frame of your car or truck. Here are a few tips to keep in mind to keep rust from forming on your wrapped car or truck:

1. Make sure that your car wrap fits tightly

Making sure that your wrap fits as tightly as possible can greatly reduce the chances of rust spots developing. Not only is it important to make sure that your wrap is the right size for your vehicle, but it’s important to make sure that it’s properly fitted on your car or truck.

2. Ensure that your wrap is fully waterproof

Choosing a calendared vinyl cast wrap can keep rust from forming on your vehicle. That’s because this material is designed to be exceptionally waterproof, which will keep water from soaking in through pores on the wrap itself.

3. Keep your car clean

Keeping your car clean can keep rust from forming on areas of your vehicle that are not wrapped. In addition, it can keep rainwater from washing corrosive substances underneath the wrap through areas that aren’t water tight, which can play a significant role in preventing rust on your vehicle.

4. Pay attention to where you park

It’s important to avoid parking on surfaces that are not designed for parking. Corrosive materials can get on to your vehicle from grass, snow, or dirt surfaces. You should only park on paved or concrete surfaces. Also, avoid driving your vehicle on salted roadways if possible. Road salt can significantly contribute to rust formation on cars and trucks.
