3M™ vinyl film will enhance the appearance of any vehicle, however, you must make sure that you apply and care for these films appropriately. There are special techniques used to apply each 3M™ wrap film and certain cleaning habits required to keep the wrap from becoming unnecessarily damaged. For instance, 3M™ Fluorescent Neon wraps begin to fade in as little as three months if exposed to constant direct sunlight. Knowing how to apply and treat your wrap enables you to increase its lifespan.
No matter which 3M™ vinyl wrap you choose, the first step in applying any film is to thoroughly clean your car. Not only should you fully clean your vehicle, but you should also make sure the application area is free of dust, dirt and moisture. Get your vehicle cleaned the day before you unwrap the vinyl application. Have every inch scrubbed from headlights to taillights and even remove exterior hardware to ensure all grime is gone. After it is squeaky clean, either dry it by hand or let it dry overnight.
Whether you choose to apply these wraps to the entire body or just specific areas, you must understand that this process requires a certain set of skills and a tremendous amount of patience. If you're ever uncertain about your capability of accomplishing this application, a professional would be happy to help you. For those who enjoy DIY jobs, tackling this project will be a demanding yet rewarding task. Here are a few tips that apply to all 3M™ films:
One very important step to remember is post-heating. This technique heats the vinyl to allow the adhesive to form a secure bond with the substrate. You'll need a heat gun and an infrared (IR) thermometer to complete this process. Heat eight- or 10-inch areas at a time in a sweeping motion and aim for 203 to 248 degrees Fahrenheit. Repeat the process on all channels and recesses and let the wrap cure for a full 24 hours.
For basic, consistent care, we recommend that you first attempt to store your wrapped vehicle in a covered or indoor space to avoid potential damages due to environmental or other exposure. You should try to hand wash your vinyl if possible, but if that isn't possible, never use a brush. Always use soap and other nonabrasive solutions on the vinyl. Even if fuel or other potentially damaging contaminants touch the wrap, never use any chemical harsher than isopropyl alcohol.
