Color change films provide multiple restyling options that spray painting cannot achieve. In addition to cool colors, effects and sheens, they also act as a protection for the underlying paint for late-model cars. However, films are significantly softer than paint; and surface contaminants – if left unattended – tend to damage films faster than on paint. Dust, road grime, water spots and skin oil generate a localized area where heat and UV rays work overtime. Just like paint, maintenance is important to keep the wrap in top condition. Due to the sensitivity of wraps, many end-users get stumped on how to maintain them, especially matte wrap finishes.
The Automotive Restyling industry mirrors the fashion industry. What is a trend today can be old tomorrow. As the limits of restyling are continuously pushed into new directions, the trends continuously evolve. Not too long ago, having a matte black vehicle was the sought-after trend. Today, matte black wraps on vehicles can be spotted more often than ever and it is no longer as unique as it once was.
