- Can I wrap a boat with CheetahWrap?
Even though many of our customers wrap boats with CheetahWrap, it is important to test prior to permanent application. Certain low energy plastics, paints or gel-coated surfaces may not allow CheetahWrap to have an acceptable bond. Some customers have used Pledge Revive Brand or other adhesive promoters to improve the bond on these types of surfaces. CheetahWrap does not warrant any marine applications.
- How much CheetahWrap material is required to wrap a typical car?
As a general guideline one 60” inch by 75’ foot roll of CheetahWrap will wrap the average size 4-door sedan. However, it is important that you always measure your vehicle to verify what is needed. Material colors can vary slightly from roll to roll. For the most consistency, please purchase enough material to complete your project. We are unable to guarantee consistency of multiple rolls with different “Batch/Lot” numbers. Note: CheetahWrap is not responsible for incorrect measurements.
How to measure your vehicle:
Measure the length of the driver or passenger side of the vehicle to be wrapped and multiply based on whether or not the bumpers are being wrapped using the guide below.
If you have a car that is 17 feet long and 4 feet tall and you will be wrapping the bumpers use this formula: 17 feet (vehicle length) x 4 feet (vehicle height) panels = 68 feet of material is needed to wrap your car (using “Sedan with bumpers x 4 panels” diagram below):
- What is the best way to remove CheetahWrap?
Even though many customers remove CheetahWrap after three years, ideal removal should be done within two to three years after installation using heat. CheetahWrap should be removed indoors, making sure both the vehicle surface and vinyl surface are both approximately 70-80 degrees initially and the car should not be hot to the touch. The vinyl should be pulled back at a 90-degree angle while being warmed evenly. It is critical not to overheat during removal. Overheating can cause the vinyl to remove in smaller pieces and/or cause the vinyl to separate from the adhesive. Watch this video for information on removing a vehicle wrap.
- Will CheetahWrap damage my paint?
Even though it is rare, all color change wrap vinyl can damage paint/chrome or clearcoats. CheetahWrap has a very low initial tac which helps to prevent damage, but it is still possible. It is important to make sure that all base paint/chrome/clearcoats have an acceptable bond to the vehicle surface prior to installing any brand of pressure sensitive vinyl, including CheetahWrap. It is also critical to follow the removal instructions in FAQ #14 above to reduce the possibility of damage. In some very rare cases, discoloration or yellowing can occur to base paint or clearcoats upon removal. This can usually be eliminated or reduced by exposing the discolored surface outdoors, in the sun, for several days. CheetahWrap’s Limited Warranty does not provide protection or reimbursement for additional costs including labor or damage to the vehicle, including paint.
- What is the CheetahWrap lifespan and warranty?
The CheetahWrap warranty is equal to or better than most competitive brands. CheetahWrap’s Limited Warranty does not provide protection or reimbursement for additional costs including labor or damage to the vehicle including paint damage. For more information, please review our CheetahWrap warranty.
