The Truth About Car Wraps

Are car wraps bad? Not at all! A wrap essentially safeguards your car’s paint.

When a wrap is put on a car, the car’s surface is completely cleaned to eliminate any debris. Then the vinyl wrap is cautiously put on the car, placing a protective vinyl barrier between your car’s paint and the elements.

Wraps won’t shield your car from dings, accidents, or any other damage.

Used for commercial purposes, too.

They aren’t to be used as car protection.  A wrap also shouldn’t be put on paint that is not the factory original paint because of the risk of the wrap lifting aftermarket paint from the car’s surface.  Nonetheless, when you detach your wrap from factory original painted surfaces, you may see that there are considerably fewer scratches and chips than if you didn’t wrap your car.

Many people wrap their cars to shield the paint underneath. The vinyl serves as a cover for the paint, averting any elements or sun from damaging the paint. It also serves the same way a clear car bra would, shielding the paint from dings and small scratches from rocks or debris. If uninstalled accurately, the vinyl won’t put any residue or peel any paint or clear coat with it. However, if the paint is at present in bad shape when you apply the vinyl, you can anticipate it to still be the same when you peel it off!

When compared to a new paint job? It’s a deal. If you own a Hyundai and you wrap it in matte metallic green with matte black accents, the total cost would be about $2000. If you want it as a custom paint job, you’re looking at an increase of $10,000. Still sounds pricey? On top of it all, a wrap is reversible, and can have patterns, designs, and colors that paint just can’t.
