Transform Your RC Boat with These Incredible Vinyl Wrap Secrets

RC boats are a great way to enjoy the water and have fun, but after a while, they can start to look a bit bland. One way to spice up the look of your RC boat is to give it a custom vinyl wrap. Vinyl wraps are a great way to add a unique and personalized touch to your RC boat, and they're also a great way to protect the paint and body of your boat from scratches and damage. In this article, we'll take a look at some of the incredible secrets to transforming your RC boat with a custom vinyl wrap.

Choosing the Right Vinyl for your Remote Control Boat

The first step in transforming your RC boat with a custom vinyl wrap is to choose the right vinyl. There are many different types of vinyl available, but the best type for your RC boat is marine grade vinyl. Marine grade vinyl is specifically designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the water, and it is also UV resistant, so it won't fade or degrade over time. This makes it the perfect choice for your RC boat. 

If you're just looking to make decals for your remote control watercraft, the best vinyl film for this would be 3M 180mC, Avery Dennison SC950 or Oracal 951. All of these are cast vinyl films that will perform well in marine conditions although none should be applied under the static water line. 

If you've decided you want to wrap your boat for a complete color change then you'll want to use a certified wrap film. Wrap films are also made from cast vinyl but also have air-release channels in their adhesives. Our most popular wraps are Rwraps™, 3M 2080 and Avery Dennison SW900 films. 

Choosing a Boat Wrap Design

Next, you'll need to choose a design for your vinyl wrap. There are many different design options available, from solid colors to intricate graphics and patterns. You can even create your own custom design using a graphic design software. You can also browse our complete vinyl wrap catalog for thousands of colors, texture and designs. 

Applying the RC Boat Wrap

When it comes to applying the vinyl wrap to your RC boat, the most important thing is to make sure that the surface of the boat is clean and free of any dirt or debris. This will ensure that the vinyl wrap adheres properly and looks great. 

It is also important to use a heat gun or a hair dryer to warm the vinyl wrap up before applying it to the boat. This will make it more pliable and easier to apply.

Taking Care of the RC Vinyl Boat Wrap

Once the vinyl wrap is applied, it's important to take care of it to ensure that it lasts as long as possible. This means avoiding scratches and other damage, as well as cleaning it regularly. A mild detergent and a soft cloth can be used to clean the vinyl wrap, and it's important to avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasives, as these can damage the wrap.

Some important notes to remember when you are washing your RC boat that has a wrap of film covering it:

  • Always read the cleaning instructions included with the purchase of a wrap or film.
  • Apply light pressure when washing your car by hand.
  • Test detergents and other cleaning products on a small section of the vehicle before using on a larger section. This simple trick can prevent massive disasters.
  • Never use brushes that might harm your film or wrap.
