If your vehicle wrap is 4 to 5 years old
It’s could be time to remove vehicle wrap before it costs more to replace it.
If you remove vehicle wrap before the end of its lifecycle, you can avoid the vinyl drying out. Old vinyl will become brittle and crack, removing vinyl in this condition adds hours of work to the project. The best time to remove a vinyl wrap is when it is still pliable, these wraps can be quickly removed using a little heat.
There are two quick ways to try and gauge difficulty.
The first is just a visual inspection – if you see that the vinyl is cracking and the graphic is worn, there is a probability that the removal is going to be difficult and slow. The second way is to find an inconspicuous spot and see if you can peel the vinyl back without it breaking off. If it comes off in “chips,” it is another sign of a labor-intensive wrap removal.
Wrap removal is affected by the age of the vinyl, the amount of time in the sun, how well maintained the vinyl is, the quality of the original wrap materials, and the quality of the installation – In particular, how much primer was used to reinforce the vinyl’s adhesive.
Primer on the edges can make it difficult to remove vehicle wrap. Primer can cause the vinyl & laminate to separate, and the adhesive residue left behind is difficult to remove and clean.
