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.
The automotive aftermarket is still enthralled by the phenomenon of customizing a personal vehicle with color change vinyl instead of a paint job. This is an exciting industry to be a part of and with the ever-growing demand of customization; more career opportunities continue to open up. Being new to the color change world requires patience with projects, creativity with cars, and an incredible attention to detail. Let’s go over some essentials you’ll need to know as you start to undertake some color change jobs.
Many Commercial Wrappers want to offer Color Change Wraps as another service! There is a whole new mindset that goes with full vehicle wrapping for the sole reason of changing a vehicles color simply to make a statement about personal style.
