Here at Team Acme, we pride ourselves on using the best materials available in all of our auto-detailing service.
Consumers often come to us with questions about how to choose one material over the other.
Maybe you want to know how Team Acme gets vinyl to stick to vehicles for an extended period of time, or perhaps you’d like to know more about the brands of vinyl Team Acme uses.
Whatever questions you may have, here is more information about two of the most popular vinyl brands out there: Avery Dennison and 3M.
Team Acme doesn’t use just one type of vinyl when we wrap a vehicle, we choose the best one for the project.
Why? It’s simple: different kinds of vinyl are better for certain purposes. This is also true of the purpose and intended duration of the vinyl wraps, which can vary by customer to a large extent. Sometimes customers want vinyl to last for 7 years, while others want vinyl to last a few months. We base the type of adhesive we use on information and goals of this kind.
Team Acme uses vinyl manufactured by Avery and 3M. The kind of vinyl we use for a wrap made for your car will depend on what kind of design you want, how long you want the wrap to last, and the condition of your vehicle.
A number of key features make Avery vinyl vehicle wraps work so well. Among these are application speed, and the design options in terms of color and texture that Avery offers. For example, Avery has a special line of pastel tones in creative, off-beat hues like light pistachio and sea-breeze blue.
We’re located in Nevada, where hot sun and dust storms can be tough on the hulls of vehicles. However, we’ve noticed certain features of Avery wraps that make them one of our go-tos. These include:
Note that vehicle graphic designers use this wrap to really make hulls pop.
If you’re looking for something truly distinct for the outside of your vehicle, 3M is ready with a number of options. Here at Team Acme, we’re proud to use these wraps. They’ve got trustworthy adhesive chemistry, and innovative designs.
3M has been in the game longer than many other companies that offer vinyl vehicle wraps, and they have the science of a weather-proof, bubble free adhesive wrap down pat. Basically, if you want to invest in a wrap you can trust for a long-term result, we recommend 3M. You’ll never feel limited with these wraps as they sport over 100+ colors in varying shades, textures, glosses, and palettes.
If you really want to turn heads, try some of the more distinctive 3M looks, like the oil-slick look of the carbon fiber 1080 series.
Avery and 3M offer hundreds upon hundreds of vinyl colors and grades. The brand of vinyl Team Acme uses for your vehicle might depend on the color(s) you want for the graphic or solid color we create for your vehicle. If 3M can supply something we need that Avery can’t, then we will use vinyl made by 3M.
In general, Avery and 3M are reliable and trusted brands. Team Acme has used both brands of vinyl for many years and normally we do not have any problems with Avery and 3M vinyl cracking, fading, or peeling.
Vinyl manufactured by Avery and 3M normally stays intact for 5 to 7 years, but it always depends on the location of the vehicle and how well the wrap is maintained.
