If you are interested in having a car wrap applied to your vehicle, then you might be wondering what they are made out of. Vehicle wraps can be used on cars, trucks, motorcycles, busses, or truly any kind of vehicle you could think of. The materials used to manufacture these car wraps can vary from company to company, but the basis is the same overall.
These wraps are typically based upon vinyl, which is usually printed on by Fleeting Image here in our modern studio and workshop in Braeside. Often this printed vinyl is then laminated with a protective layer finishing the process and protecting the printed image and finish from the sometimes harsh Australian climate. These protective coatings that go over top of a completed job can be made from a variety of materials in order to achieve a variety of styles. The company would typically choose the finish that best compliments the style and design of your car wrap. These variations range from matt, semi gloss and regular gloss along with a number of stylish finishes such as pearlescent and colour tints.
Nearly all of the materials that are used in creating a wrap that would be applied to your vehicle are offered with a manufacturer’s warranty that covers both its durability and promises it will not fade as a result of being used outdoors. Furthermore, car wraps are able to be removed from the vehicle and leave behind no damage to the paint beneath or any remaining residue afterwards should you wish to resell your vehicle.
Some car wraps include an application to the windows. In such cases, the material used to create the design on the window’s surface is typically a perforated film. This film essentially appears as if it is part of the same wrap that is covering the rest of the vehicle, but at the same time, it maintains a clear view to the outside for passengers to look through.
