Vinyl Wrap

Fleet Vehicle Maintenance

Welcome to the world of Elite Tinting and Graphics, where vehicle fleet wraps transform your vehicles into mobile masterpieces. To make sure your investment stands the test of time, it's crucial to understand the ins and outs of fleet wrap maintenance. In this guide, we'll delve into the specific care processes, focusing on the nuances between Partial Wraps and Full Wraps, and shedding light on Elite Tinting and Graphics' commitment to quality.

Care Processes for Partial Wraps and Full Wraps:

Partial Wraps: When it comes to maintaining vehicles with partial wraps, attention to detail is key, especially around the lip of the vinyl graphics. Elite Tinting and Graphics recommends a careful hand wash for these areas, using a mild detergent and a soft cloth or sponge. Avoid high-pressure washers around the edges to prevent any lifting or damage.

Full Wraps: Full wraps offer comprehensive coverage, making maintenance a bit simpler. Elite Tinting and Graphics suggests a regular cleaning schedule using a non-abrasive detergent and a soft brush or sponge. A thorough rinse with a garden hose helps remove any residual soap. For both partial and full wraps, it's crucial to attend to stains and contaminants promptly to prevent any long-term damage.

Please, please, please. For our sanity and yours, don't drive your car through any drive in car wash. The brushes are abrasive and regardless of whether you can notice it, it's destroying your vinyl.

Elite Tinting and Graphics' Lamination Process:

One of the secrets to Elite Tinting and Graphics' impressive longevity is their commitment to quality through laminating custom prints. Lamination involves applying a protective layer over the printed graphics, creating a shield against the elements. Here's how Elite Tinting and Graphics ensures your fleet wrap stays vibrant and protected:

  1. UV Protection: The harsh rays of the sun can take a toll on vehicle wraps. Elite Tinting and Graphics employ UV-resistant laminates to safeguard against fading and deterioration caused by prolonged sun exposure.
  2. Weather Resistance: From rain to snow, your fleet faces various weather conditions. The laminating process adds an extra layer of defense, preventing water from seeping into the adhesive and protecting against environmental factors.
  3. Scratch and Abrasion Resistance: Road debris, branches, and other potential hazards can pose a threat to your fleet wraps. Elite Tinting and Graphics' laminates act as a shield, minimizing the risk of scratches and abrasions.
  4. Extended Lifespan: The lamination process not only protects against immediate damage but also contributes to the overall longevity of the fleet wrap. With proper maintenance, you can enjoy a vibrant and eye-catching design for years to come.

Maintaining your fleet wrap is a crucial aspect of preserving your brand's image and ensuring a positive return on investment. With Elite Tinting and Graphics, you not only get stunning custom prints but also a commitment to quality through their meticulous lamination process. By following the recommended care processes and leveraging the protective benefits of laminates, your fleet will continue to turn heads on the roads of Duluth, MN, and beyond.
