In this article, we will share some top tips on how you can stop your car wrap from fading:
1) Make sure the car wrap you choose is UV stable
When choosing the right vinyl for your car wrap, always go for the best, don’t just pick the cheapest vinyl. Make sure your vinyl is UV stable, this will help it to resist fading and keep your car wrap looking good for longer.
2) Protect your vinyl from the weather
It may sound obvious, but the sun is the number one thing that will fade your wrap, so when you are not using your car, try to keep it covered. Excess rainwater can also have a damaging effect on your wrap, so if possible, keep your vehicle garaged or under a carport.
3) Keep your car clean
Keeping your car clean will also help your wrap to stand the test of time. We recommend using good-quality car shampoo to help add an extra layer of protection to your wrap.
4) Don’t use a waterslide decal
If you’re thinking about using a waterslide decal to wrap your car, we highly recommend against it. Waterslide decals are great for other things, but for car wraps, they are not the right material. Waterslide decals don’t last long as they can quickly fade or tear.
5) Choose a professional installer
A professional installer will be able to make sure that your wrap is installed perfectly and look great for as long as possible. It may look like an easy job, but left to an amateur, it could spell disaster and lead to unnecessary fading over time.
