The first method that is gaining more and more supporters is car wrapping. This method is ideal if you want to change the color of the body frequently without having to disassemble the body. Sticking a special foil imitating varnish is much less time-consuming and cheaper than applying a new layer of varnish. Covering the entire car costs about PLN 3,000, which compared to painting (even PLN 6-8,000) is a small expense. The films are durable, and their warranty can be up to 10 years. They are also additional protection against scratches and minor damage (caused by e.g. gravel or stones under the wheels of moving vehicles) and the harmful effects of UV radiation.
Auto rubber coatings
A novelty on the Polish market are synthetic rubbers, which cover the entire body or its selected elements. Such rubber coatings can also be applied inside the car, including wood. Special preparations are available in the form of canned liquids, which are sprayed on selected parts of the vehicle. The rims can also be covered with such "spray rubber" - in this case, the dedicated rubber has a thicker and more resistant structure. Before applying the preparation, the element should be thoroughly cleaned, because it affects the duration of the effect. A car covered with a rubber coating can be washed without any problems in most preparations available in car washes. The material is resistant to both low and high temperatures, but it does not tolerate scratches and cuts.
If we want to change the color of the car, we do not have to go to the painter. We can choose from many colors and textures of special films for wrapping cars or rubber coatings. The undoubted advantage of this solution is speed, lack of invasiveness and the possibility of returning to the base coat. Lower prices are also important and… the impression we will make on drivers of other vehicles.
