Vehicle wrapping… one of the ultimate customisations. A full vehicle wrap is not a cheap modification by any means and if carried out correctly, it can take several days to complete. The results and benefits from a car wrap are outstanding. Not only does your car get a whole new look, you’ll also protect the original paintwork underneath from further weathering, contamination and stone chips, with the possibility of some pretty eccentric and unique designs. 

But, a big point for consideration is the maintenance and protection for a vinyl wrap. Here at Mattallics Detailing, we are proud to offer our Wrap Safe Range, that can be safely used directly on wrapped vehicles. The Wrap Safe Range consists of our Cloud Snow Foam, Purifier Shampoo, Quick Slick Spray Wax, Infusion Paint Sealant and Lustre Paste Wax.

Before taking a microfiber to your wrapped car, it’s important to understand why it’s a good idea to take extra precautions. We would always suggest washing the car by carrying out a normal two bucket wash method using Purifier Shampoo. In doing so you will increase the longevity of the vinyl wrap and help prevent damage and defects appearing. Any automated car wash or other methods of cleaning cars may result in the wrap losing adhesion earlier on in its life or becoming damaged, swirled, marred and even fading in colour. This is due to incorrect cleaning methods and using products with higher concentrations of solvents / acids.

Wrapped cars have a tendency to stain a little easier in comparison to conventional car paint. So, everyday contaminants like bird droppings, tree sap and pollutants will adhere to the wrap more than car paint. This means protecting your wrapped car is even more important! And, like with any car, the longer you leave it… the harder it will be to clean. This is why we are introducing our certified ‘Wrap Safe’ products.

Then you can use the rest of our meticulous products on other areas not in direct contact with the wrapped bodywork. Wheel care, glass cleaners and sealants and interior (obviously).

Quick reminder, these products are not suitable for matte wraps due to the course properties of these vinyl’s where contamination embeds itself.  

Using paint protection or wax based products on matte and textured wraps can damage them rather than being advantageous.

If you do find you have wax or waxy residue on the surface of your wrap, remove with a recommended IPA.
