Challenge: To be able to wrap a Scion with all its in and out curves using 3M® IJ-180-C Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Vinyl (PSAV) with a matching 3M® Gloss Vinyl Overlaminate for added protection requires skilled installers and a lot of patience. The car is small in size but very difficult to wrap due to all of the in and out curves. Unlike paint, PSAV material has to be worked in and out of all the curves and cracks, like the doors, gas cap etc.

Solution: Working from electronic files submitted by their Agency, Enhance a Colour fit the files to the template of the Scion to be wrapped. (Enhance a Colour has a library of templates for cars, trucks, buses and various RV’s) Once the PDF proofs of the template was finished, we sent the PDF proofs for approval by the client. Once approved, Enhance a Colour printed the files on our HP Latex Printer direct to the 3M® material in full color. After letting the printed vinyl dry for 24 hours, we applied the gloss vinyl overlaminate to the printed vinyl and trimmed the panels for installation by Enhance a Colour’s installers. The whole process from receiving the Agency files to the complete wrap takes about 8 to 10 days with the actual wrap of the vehicle taking 1 to 2 days.
