History And Use Of Car Wrap Vinyl

Dec 14, 2022



Vinyl has been used for custom lettering, logos, and decals since the 1950s, but complete car wraps haven’t caught on. Then, in 1993, a mundane but revolutionary idea arose: why not wrap the entire car in vinyl?


Vinyl car wrap is a blend of polyvinylchloride (PVC) polymer, from which the word “vinyl” comes from, with various additives to make it flexible, resistant to ultraviolet light, and add color. These ingredients are blended, cast onto moving sheets, then baked and cured.


We’ve come a long way in the past few years from solid colors, with innovators in the car wrap industry developing metallic, reflective, matte, glossy, pearlescent, color shifting, and even factory and pantone colors , not to mention the beautiful, stunning and intricate patterns and combinations.
