We install premium Carbon Fibre Vinyl Wraps Gold Coast & Brisbane –  Carbon Fibre Wraps are highest selling film bar none! It can be used in a series of ways to give a unique flavour to any interior, exterior or vehicle. In saying this, there are a few misconceptions about the film finish that we have noticed across the hundreds of enquiries we have fielded.

Firstly, the request we get a lot is “I want it glossy”…unfortunately, being that we ONLY use high end brands 3M, Avery or Hexis for carbon fibre, we don’t get much of a choice as to the gloss level.

There is a weave texture in the film, one direction of the stitching pattern is glossy, the other more satin/matte, so depending on the angle it is viewed upon the vehicle as to whether it will look glossy or matted.

Separate yourself from the pack. Whether you want to give your vehicle a makeover, update its style or just turn heads, we only use the top 3 vinyl wrap film brands worldwide, being Avery Dennison Supreme Wrap SW900,  3M™ 1080 Wrap Film Series and Hexis HX 30000 series as there is no substitute for quality.

The material is soft and flexible allowing it to conform to contours and bend easily. The pressure-activated adhesive allows you to slide and reposition the film until you apply firm pressure. The non-visible air release channels assure a fast, easy and virtually bubble-free installation.

Carbon Fibre Vinyl Wraps can be used on the interior or exterior of your vehicle such as bonnet, roof, boot, dash parts, mirrors, trims, or you can even wrap the whole exterior of the vehicle.

It offers long-term removability from painted surfaces and does not require an over laminate. Which means you can enjoy your personalised look without having to be off the road for too long.

NOTE: Areas repaired with body filler must be sanded, epoxy primed and finished with OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) paint or clear coat. Any recently applied finish must be cured for the full amount of time recommended by the paint manufacturer before applying film.

Any rust, bubbling, scratches, dents or other damage will be visible through the film, and such surface imperfections may damage the film or cause the film to fail prematurely.
