What kind of vinyl is this?



Does anyone know what type and color vinyl this is?

Looks like matte red to me, but 3m does not make it.

Speaking of body wraps, how good is the finish on a vinyl and how long does it realistically last against wear and tear?

Does it really also just peel off when you're ready to remove it?

My car is wrapped in 3M 1080 Burnt Orange Gloss. I've had it for over 4 months now and it still looks good. My car gets washed once a week with a high pressure washer and it's holding up really well. With regards to it just peeling off once you are tired of it, I believe it does. I think it just leaves a bit of residue, which is apparently easily to remove.

How about the 3m version?

Someone else told me -

Matte red only comes in hexis brand and it will peel up in the groves of the m3. 3m is the only stuff that sticks.

The front bumper would have to have slices in it to relieve stress on vinyl. It will look like shit and still lift up on a super hot day. 3m is all I use because of this.
