Vehicle Car Wraps Application Knowledge

Front windshield vehicle car wraps

Automotive insulation film is divided into front and rear windshield film and side windshield film. Among them, the front windshield has the highest requirements for insulation film. According to the regulations of the Traffic Safety Law of the Ministry of Public Security, the light transmittance of the front windshield must be greater than 70%, with the premise of not affecting driving safety. The front windshield is most taboo to use dark insulation film. In addition, when choosing the anti-ultraviolet index of the insulation film, the higher the better, because it can protect the components of the central console and prevent premature aging caused by long-term exposure to the sun.

As for the side windshield insulation film, it is also based on the premise of not affecting the driver’s observation of the rearview mirror. The insulation vehicle wrap for the side windshield can be more flexible and the colors can also be more varied. Some car owners even like to use blue insulation film.

In addition, the insulation effect of the insulation film is not directly proportional to the depth of its color, and the coating process inside the insulation film is the key factor that determines the insulation effect. Generally speaking, insulation films with an insulation rate of 60% on the market are already good products. If the product claims to have an insulation rate of up to 80% or even 90%, consumers should be more cautious.

Quality acceptance of vehicle car wraps

It includes “three looks and one notice”:

  • Check whether there is any sand and bubbles on the entire insulation vehicle wrap;

  • Check whether the edges and corners are firmly attached. The edges and corners are the easiest places to get dust and also the most important test of the technician’s attention to detail;

  • Sit in the car and observe whether any places affect the line of sight. Especially for the front and side windshields;

  • After the film is attached, it is recommended not to raise or lower the window at will within 7 days.

Winter installation of vehicle car wraps

Because the days are short and the nights are long in winter, the daylight is relatively insufficient. First of all, it is not suitable to choose vehicle car wraps that are too dark in color. Films with low light transmittance of dark colors will extend the judgment time for the driver in emergencies, which is prone to accidents. High-quality films with high light transmittance are conducive to driving safety. Secondly, avoid using some miscellaneous or inferior films of unknown brands. Some inferior vehicle wraps have uneven thickness and will have uneven shrinkage in warm weather after being installed in winter, causing the film to crack prematurely and become useless. There are many fake films on the market. Consumers should not be greedy for cheap prices when buying, as it will leave hidden dangers for future use. It is recommended to purchase vehicle wraps from manufacturer-designated professional stores.

Maintenance of vehicle car wraps

Within a few days after the film is attached, try to avoid raising or lowering the window. The insulation film is relatively fixed on the window and needs 5-7 days. Before this, the edges of the film are easily worn and curled during the process of opening and closing the window, and the film that has not been completely bonded is also prone to displacement.

High-quality vehicle wraps usually have good wear resistance. Special high-performance resin adhesives are used between the film layers, and the adhesion is very outstanding. When the film is attached, the edge is only 2 millimeters away from the edge of the glass and is not easy to be warped. Moreover, the scratch-resistant coating makes it have strong scratch resistance and a long service life, making it easy to maintain. The film surface is also easily damaged by raising and lowering the window on weekdays. Poor-quality films will show scratches after a month or two, choosing high-quality vehicle wraps can avoid this situation.

If the film is accidentally loosened during car washing, it should be returned to a professional filming shop for re-fixation to ensure effectiveness and durability. If there are stains on the film surface, do not wipe it with chemical solvents. It is best to use wet towels, paper towels dipped in water, or cotton cloth with detergent to clean it. A rubber scraper can also be used to clean it. However, avoid using items with abrasive effects and tools that can scratch or damage the thin film to avoid damaging the solar film.
