Liquid wrapping, also known as spray-on wrapping or peelable paint, is a method of protecting and decorating surfaces using a specialized liquid coating. This coating is applied using a spray gun, similar to how traditional paint is applied. However, unlike conventional paint, spray wraps forms a flexible, rubber-like layer that can be easily peeled off when desired, without damaging the underlying surface.

Spray wrapping has gained popularity for various applications, including:

Vehicle Customization: Commonly used to change the color or appearance of vehicles temporarily. It allows car owners to experiment with different looks without committing to permanent paint changes.

Protective Coating: Can provide a protective layer for surfaces, shielding them from scratches, chips, and other damage. This is particularly useful for protecting the paintwork on vehicles or other objects.

How to Apply a Liquid Wrap:

  1. Preparation: Clean the vehicle’s surface thoroughly to remove dirt, grease, and wax. Mask off any areas you don’t want to be coated with painter’s tape and plastic sheeting.
  2. Spraying: Using Plasti Dip spray cans or a spray gun, apply thin and even coats of Plasti Dip onto the vehicle’s surface. Start with a light mist coat as a base, followed by 4-5 additional coats for full coverage. Allow each coat to dry before applying the next.
  3. Drying and Curing: Let the final coat of Plasti Dip dry completely. Depending on environmental conditions, this may take several hours to overnight. For optimal durability, allow the Plasti Dip to cure for at least 24-48 hours before exposing it to harsh conditions.
  4. Finishing Touches: Once the Plasti Dip is fully cured, carefully remove the masking materials. Optionally, apply a clear coat or glossifier for added shine and protection.

The advantages of spray wrapping include its temporary nature, ease of application, and ability to be removed without leaving residue or causing damage. However, it may not be as durable or long-lasting as traditional paint in some applications, and multiple coats may be required for desired coverage and durability. As with any coating, proper surface preparation is crucial for achieving optimal results.

With the addition of a top glossifier and flowing the results can be as good as OEM.
