If you’re not yet familiar with the term vinyl car wrapping, it is the process of applying a specially designed pattern to the outer body of your vehicle. The material is durable and designed to withstand harsh weather conditions, scrapes, rock chips, and other common wear and tear.
Benefits of vinyl wraps
There are plenty of benefits to having vinyl car wrapping done on your vehicle. But first let’s answer the question: what exactly is this thing called vinyl? Vinyl wraps can be applied to most exterior surfaces including metal, wood, plastic, or glass with varying levels of thickness. As one might expect, though not all materials are suitable for vinyl application due to fading or design incompatibility issues, most vehicles are wrapped in 10-100 mils of material. An interesting fact about vinyl is that it contains no vinyl content whatsoever. Rather, it’s simply made from polyurethane which should be a familiar term if you have been using vehicles for a long time.
There is no need for decals or stickers that can peel off, fade, or damage your vehicle’s paint job. The vinyl material used on your car or truck creates a tight bond with the exterior of your vehicle and even has self-healing properties to help get rid of small scratches and dents. Once installed, it’s nearly impossible to tell where the vinyl wraps joints begin and end. It completely transforms the appearance of your vehicle so that you can stand out in a crowd.
When applying the vinyl to your vehicle, it is layered in multiple sections called ‘layers’. A layer is made up of a base topcoat or partial primer and a clear topcoat. Layers can be applied to any surface except for glass, fibreglass and steel. These three surfaces need to be sealed beforehand before vinyl application.
