Dipping refers to liquid car wrapping. We use products from Plasti Dip, a US-based company. Plasti Dip provides a decorative and protective rubberised coating, which is easily removed if needed. Liquid car wrapping is considered a more economical form of car colour change. Plasti Dip can be applied to metal, plastic, and glass, among other surface types. It’s suitable for interiors and exteriors alike.
Approximately 4 hours per coat. To ensure it is easily removable, 6-8 coats will be applied.
Any necessary fixes to a vehicle should be carried out prior to wrapping, as there is the chance it may highlight scratches and dents. We will ensure that the surface is clean of grease, dirt, and debris before coating. * Note: Spray wraps are not a means of accident repair.
Plasti Dip protective coating is highly resistant to acids, alkaline, and other common chemicals, meaning several coats will create a protective buffer for the surface. Plasti Dip is less resistant to petroleum, however, so avoid petroleum-based products.
Once dried, a liquid wrap will last for years. The surface should only be washed with hot water and gentle soap detergents in order to preserve it. Avoid using petroleum, citric, alcohol/solvent-based cleaning products.
Yes - Plasti Dip can be applied to wheel rims, interiors, rear lights, and more.
No – Plasti Dip doesn’t contain any polyvinyl chloride or other types of vinyl resins, which is what makes liquid car wrapping a more modern and economical process. This is what makes it easy to reverse any colour change.
