What is carbon fiber vinyl?
The “real” carbon fiber is a high-tech material used in high-performance production — spacecraft, race cars, sports equipment, etc. It is truly valued by engineers for its light weight and strength. This material is actually stronger than steel! Carbon fibers are interweaved together, creating a mesh-like graphite surface. And this is what inspired the vinyl manufacturers: the unique look and the strength. And today you can choose the option of carbon fiber vinyl wrap as a way to customize your car.
The process of application
Carbon fiber vinyl is applied over the original paintwork of a vehicle. Typically it comes as a PVC-based vinyl with an adhesive layer. With the help of a heat gun and special equipment, it is applied to a vehicle’s body. Carbon fiber vinyl film is perfect for those that want the premium look of carbon without repainting their car, which would be much more expensive. Also, unlike a new paint job that can’t be undone, a carbon fiber vinyl wrap can easily be removed at any time.
Why wrap your car in the first place?
No matter which factory color your car has, there will be plenty of other vehicles out there that look exactly the same. Don’t feel like being a part of a crowd? Choose carbon fiber vinyl wrap and — a full, or partial application (hood, doors, bumper, etc.). Not only will you get a sporty and dynamic look, but you also protect the original paintwork and maintain (or even increase!) the resale value of your car. In terms of cost and time, auto wrapping is a great alternative to getting a new paint job.

No, if it is done professionally and underneath is an original paintwork. Vinyl wrap can easily be removed at any time — whether you are bored with the appearance of your car and want to change it, or if you simply want to go back to the original look of the car. If the underlying paint job was done properly and the wrap was installed correctly, then the removal process should not damage the original paintwork and should not leave any residue behind. However, it’s still better to get the removal job done by a professional service instead of trying to do it yourself and ending up with sticky residue or scratches.
If you have previous experience with car wrapping, then yes, you can do it yourself. However, if you are unfamiliar with the process, then it’s much better to get the job done by an expert instead of trying to figure it out by yourself.
