Car wrap, unlike glass, has a certain lifespan. Over time, the film may be damaged or lose its original heat insulation effect, therefore it is necessary to replace it to avoid affecting driving visibility and to continue to provide heat insulation and aesthetic effects. So, how often do we need to replace car wrap?
Replacement time mainly depends on the quality of the car wrap
A good car wrap can last for about 5 years without replacement, while poor-quality film may need to be replaced within 1 year. Why is there such a big difference? Because low-quality film has poor materials and workmanship, with mediocre adhesive and substrate that may not have been processed or improved. How can we guarantee its lifespan? After a year, the heat insulation effect may significantly decline and issues such as fading, and blistering may arise, affecting our visibility and the appearance of our car. Moreover, a lifetime replacement warranty offered by the store may just be a false promise. On the other hand, high-quality car wrap uses advanced technology and materials, with an official warranty for a certain period.
How often to replace car wrap is related to daily use
Even the best car wrap may be damaged without proper maintenance. For example, sticking things on it or improper cleaning can shorten its lifespan. Therefore, to avoid frequent replacement, we should pay attention to the following: first, use a non-corrosive neutral cleaning agent when cleaning car wrap, and use a soft fine towel as a tool. Secondly, avoid adsorbing suction cups, labels, and other pasted objects directly onto the film surface.
Naturally, the higher the price, the more functional the corresponding solar car wrap, and the longer the usage time. Car owners can choose high-quality solar car wraps based on their own needs if they want to use it for a longer time without replacing it frequently.
We recommend that car owners go to the corresponding 4S store or professional maintenance center to tint or replace solar car wrap. The quality of the car wrap here has a certain guarantee, and the tinting technology is also relatively professional, which will not easily damage the car glass or solar car wrap. To better protect our vehicles, it is still necessary to tint them, creating a good driving environment, protecting various components in the car, reducing their aging rate, alleviating the burden of air conditioning, improving fuel efficiency, protecting personal privacy, isolating dazzling light, and reducing safety hazards. In the event of an accident, the probability of harm to passengers can be reduced by sticking onto the film after the glass is broken.
