What vinyl base adhesive is used
Our Sled Wraps and Graphics are digitally printed on engineering grade high-tensile vinyl with aggressive, permanent pressure-sensitive adhesive. The special adhesive system is designed to adhere to “hard-to-stick” and low energy surfaces and custom air release technology. Graphic application is now easier and more efficient minimizing the potential for bubbles during installation.
What covers the engineering-grade base later?
The primary purpose of our industry-leading lamination is to provide abrasion, weather, and UV (ultraviolet) protection for ink and base layer vinyl. Our proprietary lamination thickness also makes it easier to handle for installation. Due to our laminate thickness, it is critical when installing to ensure any and all air or water from wet applications is completely dissolved and dry before exposure to winter temperatures. Post heating surfaces and extra pressure is also highly recommended for avoiding premature release.
While our material is custom engineered using proprietary information; rest assured, we have the best material available per the application. We are firm believers that conformability outranks thickness and therefore we do not offer the thickest media on purpose. Keep in mind, our media is tested, endorsed and backed by BRP and used by all BRP Ambassadors.
That being said, out combined media and overlaminate is roughly 20mil thick +/- depending on the final application.
The thickness of our media allows us to use fewer relief cuts. For example, our competitors cut the side panel of the Ski-Doo Gen4 in half where ours is one piece mimicking the factory decals. This is just one spot where our coverage is better based on a more conformable product.
Use a standard heat gun or propane torch to heat specific pieces up not exceeding 212F, but be careful not to get too hot. The rule of thumb is warm to the touch. Once complete, re-apply pressure over the entire piece with a squeegee to ensure adhesion/bond to low energy plastics of your machine.
