Once upon a time, the only time you'd see anything approaching a satin finish
was when someone had primed their car or truck prior to painting it. Jump to the
21st Century and, like so many other things that just weren't cool, the
satin-look is where it's at. At this point you may be saying, "Okay, I get that
the satin, dipped look is popular right now but what's the difference between
satin and matte vinyl wraps?" And, to tell the truth, you wouldn't be alone
which is why you should keep reading.
In short, Matte, Gloss and Satin refer to the sheen a paint, or in our case, a
vinyl wrap has on its surface. Unsurprisingly, the more sheen, the more the vinyl will reflect light and seem to shine.
Naturally, Gloss vinyl films deliver the highest sheen, while Matte films have very little
to virtually no sheen.
In paints as well as with cast wrap films, sheen is a pretty good indicator of stain resistance
and ease of maintenance. Glossy finishes are much more stain-resistant than
Satin and Matte ones. Gloss is also very easy to wipe down and wash, while
low-gloss paints take a little more effort to clean. A good quality satin may be more stain-resistant and washable than a low-quality semi-gloss.
A real downside to Gloss vinyl wraps is their reflectivity which make imperfections much more obvious than low-sheen
(think Matte or Satin) vinyl. A Satin (or “eggshell” in the world of paints) finish is much more forgiving than a
PVC films with more sheen.
