FAQ Car Wrap
Yes you can! However, it is always best to double check with your dealership.
Post-heat is a crucial step that can’t be missed; especially on all RepoTack colors. Our films will lose memory between 205 to 215 Fahrenheit (95-100 degrees Celsius) Once it reaches that temperature the memory dies.
You must use a heat gun because the propane torch is too strong and provide less control of the heat! Must also use an infrared thermometer in unison with the heat gun to be able to measure the vinyl’s temperature during the post-heating process.
Heat the area by moving the heat gun around or back-and-forth (do not keep it stationary pointing at one spot as it may over-heat the vinyl too quickly) and use your temperature gauge to ensure the heat at the right temperature. So be sure to apply this to all complex shapes, recesses and extrusions: bumpers, mirrors, overlaps etc. If you don’t do this your vinyl could return to its original shape and start lifting, bubbling & curling if over stretched.
Never forgot your IR gauge. By thinking you can achieve the same results by just heating for a longer period of time. That type of guesswork is dangerous as you may overheat the vinyl and damage the finish!
Make sure the car is properly washed and free of dust before the installation process starts.
During the removal process it is important to apply heat with a heat gun to the vinyl, up to a temperature of 50ºC. In regards to this, pay extra attention to the painted plastic parts and areas of the bodywork that have been repainted. It is the responsibility of the customer to determine the suitability of the self-adhesive vinyl with the surface that it is to be applied to.
The time it takes to remove vinyl is affected by many factors, such as the time passed from the application, exposure of the decoration either outdoors or indoors, type of surface, temperature of the room and of the surface, etc.
