The dreaded day has come. You knew this moment would come at some point after your excitement over finishing up installing your vinyl some time ago. Or maybe even recently. Maybe you're tired of the current look of your vinyl on whatever it is installed onto, maybe it is hitting its lifespan and might be faded/cracking, or maybe you were not satisfied with the job you did installing it and the results aren't what you expected. That's not a problem, it happens to the best of us! It also comes with the territory of the DIY hobby. When you're dabbling with vinyl, expect to remove it at some point. Depending on the type, some vinyl can last up to 7-8 years before needing to be replaced, it's a long term investment that can thankfully be removed with ease, others however, might need a bit more effort to remove. Naturally, reliability and quality are extremely important criteria for getting your film off of what it is installed onto, and the less excess residue or potential damage, the better! So be sure to choose the right materials that will best suit your vinyl removal needs.
Now, there's a variety of different types of vinyls out there that have different types of adhesion properties. Say you've installed Avery or 3M vinyl, these vinyls are amazing and are as flawless as paint when installed properly with care. It's installed so good that you might have trouble getting it off. Say you use your nail to try getting ahold of the vinyl, near the edges. Good idea, but once you tug on it in the opposite direction you notice that it's a bit difficult, so you apply more force to it. It moves a bit but it's taking too much time going at a snail's pace, when you got some of it off, you find that you accidentally tear it and it splits into different areas. Great, more work, you don't want to deal with that type of nonsense do you? I sure wouldn't. You might think to grab a tool or something but you end up scuffing your original paint job or worse. Great care should to be taken when you want to remove your vinyl, don't just yank it or use a random tool and hope luck is on your side. When you're handling vinyls, as durable as they can be, they can also be a bit finnicky to remove without care. With that said, here are some products we offer to get your vinyl off with ease and without any kind of damage to scuffs done to your DIY vehicle/object.
The first product on our list is the 32-ounce bottle of Rapid Tac's Rapid Remover. Why should you spend your hard earned money on harsh, toxic adhesive removers that can take hours to work and are messy to boot when you can get a non-toxic alternative that works fast and easy? From the smell to precautions needed to take with other products, they just aren't worth it. Our Rapid Tac works in as few as 60 seconds and leaves no mess. No damage to your vehicle or residual pungent smells. All you need to do is follow the outlined 5-Step process to use it and remove any vinyl sticker or decal in no time. The 4-ounce version of the Rapid Tac Removal Spray Spray is for users that seek a powerful, pocket-sized adhesive remover. It's identical to its bigger brother, so all you need to do is spray it, wait 30 to 60 seconds and then use a squeegee to remove the decal. The best part is that Rapid Remover is water soluble so you can simply rinse it off. No fuss, no mess and no residue, perfect!
In terms of specifics of what to expect when you utilize these removers, all you have to do is wait a few minutes for optimal results and wipe away residue adhesive with a plastic squeegee and paper towel. Not only does this Rapid Remover work fast, but it works without causing damage to most painted or bare metal surfaces. The versatility of this Rapid Tac Remover is really amazing. What could have been a four-hour job (and a messy, arduous one at that) can now be cut in half with an easy, clean and non-damaging removal. Gone are the days of using dangerous and risky chemicals that often damaged painted surfaces, and had numerous health hazards. Rapid Remover works. It’s that simple!
Speaking of squeegees, you'll need proper ones to get your removal process done right. The Lidco® Chizzler is a small red removal/application tool. While it can help remove creases and bubbles of tint, it can also provide you with a starting point to remove your installed vinyl and decals. The Lidco® White, Rigid Big Blade Removal Tools is an large plastic razor blade made to help you remove window tint film, vinyl and stickers without causing damage to surfaces. Designed with a solid back for strength and flexibility, this blade features both lifting edges and beveled scraping. Its Blue counterpart is nearly identical with it being much more flexible and less rigid, allowing for easier maneuvering when working with tighter spaced removals. It's best to choose both if you're working on a large project. So be sure to pick up some of these squeegees along with a Rapid Tac Remover to get the most quick and efficient adhesion removal results.
At the end of the day, you want the best products for removing your vinyl or decals. It makes no sense to waste hours of your time dealing with toxic chemicals and fumes from other brand adhesion removals.
