What is the vinyl wrapping process?
1. Decontamination, Washing & Cleansing
The vehicle is washed in multiple stages. First, the car is washed to remove any physical debris, bugs, dust, and anything else which could cause imperfections in the finish. Second, any surface contamination and impurities are removed physically and chemically from the vehicle. This allows for smooth, paint-like results by ensuring that the vinyl film adheres properly to the paint.
2. Component Removal
After the vehicle has been dried and cleaned, we take off all the components to ensure the best car wrapping job. This stage is not performed by many inferior car wraps. Our in-house vehicle specialists and prestige car technicians remove all required components with professionalism and care, to allow these to be returned to the vehicle in immaculate condition.
3. Applying the Vinyl Wrap
After all components are prepared, two to three technicians will apply vinyl film to each component according to manufacturer’s specifications. We apply the film in controlled conditions by monitoring the temperature and humidity. To achieve the best, most seamless finish, we wrap all edges in the gaps between panels.

We work with worldwide renowned brands, ensuring the best possible product to accompany our high-quality service.
