Gloss Vinyl Wrap to Make Your Ride Shine Like no Other

Gloss vinyl wrap is a film that is applied over the vehicle’s body in order to upgrade its design, but as well to protect it from damage. This film, like no other, gives your ride a very distinct glamorous look that can also be enhanced by different colors — red, blue, white, black and many more.

The main advantages of this type of wrap is that it hides the existing defects on your car’s body really well, and can be removed or replaced very easily. It is much cheaper than the new paintwork — and can be installed to any type of vehicle, from a family sedan to a sports car.

Types of gloss vinyl

Gloss vinyl film is one of the most popular types of car wraps because of its ability to create a high-gloss shine that can be seen from far away.

There are two types of high gloss vinyl wrap out there on the market: clear and tinted. Tinted vinyl wrap can be used to change the color of your vehicle, while clear vinyl wrap can be used to protect the paint without changing the appearance much (but adding that remarkable extra shine!).

While choosing which vinyl you want to use, you will need to decide on whether you want a standard or premium wrap, a regular or a standout color, a full or a partial car wrap. We are here to assist you with making the right choice — for your standout ride.

Gloss vinyl wrap advantages

The gloss vinyl wrap is a fantastic way to add a layer of protection and enhance the overall appearance of your car. The material is durable and with the right installation, it will offer you years of protection against scratches and chips. It can also help you maintain a great-looking vehicle for many years to come.

This type of vinyl wrap is designed to be applied on top of your factory paint job, but not to be used as its replacement.

Gloss vinyl wrap disadvantages

While gloss vinyl wraps protect your paint from fading or oxidation, they demand quite careful maintenance. You have to avoid automatic car washes — the wrapped vehicle can be washed by hand with a soft sponge, with no use of abrasives and particular chemicals. But other than that it is no harder to look after than of any other wrapped car.

Gloss vinyl wrap is applied by stretching the vinyl film over the vehicle and heating it until it melts to fit the contours perfectly. That is why it is very important to trust this job to professionals. If you decide to do it yourself, you can both tear the film and damage the original paint of your car. Better to trust this work to professionals.
