What is a Car Wrap

What is a Car Wrap?

A wrap is a large vinyl graphic applied directly over the original paint of the vehicle. A wrap allows you to change the vehicles appearance in a very short period of time.

Car wraps can stay on a vehicle for normally one to five years. A wrap will not damage the painted surface of your vehicle.

If your vehicle is factory paint, the wrap will protect that surface and preserve the quality of paint underneath. The vinyl will act as a cover for the paint, preventing damage from weather exposure on the paint.

Mean Wraps specialize in vehicle wrapping services, and will wrap your car to perfection.

Why Wrap and Not Paint?

Paint jobs can range in cost depending on colour, the body shop you take it to and the quality of the paints. Whereas vinyl wrapped by a professional will cost you a fraction of the price.

When purchasing your vehicle, you may have wanted something in a specific colour which factory paint was not available. This is where vinyl wraps will allow all of your car fantasies to come true. If you are looking for change and want to stand out from the crowd, every few years wrapping your car is just the thing.

Every covered inch of your vehicle in vinyl is protecting your factory paint from all natural hazards. Say goodbye to stone chips, abrasions and of course natural hazards.

Being able to maintain the manufacturers original paint will keep the resale value intact from a devolved aftermarket paint job. Wraps are easy maintenance, enjoy never having to wax again. Wraps will look brand new from just a hand wash. High-quality vinyl ensures a long lasting product that can also be safely removed.

What Are Vinyl Wraps Made from?

Vehicle wraps are made of vinyl with an adhesive backing. But there is more to a vehicle wrap than just saying it is vinyl.

The wraps begin using poly vinyl chloride, specific additives are used to create the film such as plasticizer which gives the wrap film flexibility and pigment for the desired colour for the wrap film. Durable wraps also mean UV absorbers and heat stabilises are needed.
