 OVERWRAPS™  Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1.  What is the durability of OVERWRAPS™?

    OVERWRAPS™ Camouflage Coverings have a 3 year durability against fading and cracking of the material. The application does not have a specific durability because conditions will vary. However, if application is done properly, up to 5 years could be expected of the graphics.

  • 2.  How are OVERWRAPS™ produced?

    OVERWRAPS Camouflage Coverings are produced using Solvent Ink Jet Printing for longer durability and color clarity. OVERWRAPS™ Camouflage Coverings are printed on 3M Controltac™ Digital Media. This is a high quality, durable, dimensionally stable vinyl film. After printing, the graphics are laminated with a matte vinyl laminate for kits, or a gloss laminate for accents.

     - Made for vehicle applications

     - Positionable (may be repositioned prior to final application)

  • 3.  What kind of adhesive is used?

    The adhesive used on OVERWRAPS™ Camouflage Coverings is what sets this product apart from the competition. It is a positionable adhesive which allows you to detach the sheet and reposition it if necessary before adhering it aggressively. This adhesive system also permits removal, while leaving little or no residue. In addition, it has been enhanced with 3M™ Comply™ performance feature, which allows air to escape from beneath the vinyl, virtually eliminating wrinkles and bubbles.

  • 4.  Can I cover rust spots with OVERWRAPS™?

    The decals will not adhere properly to rust. You'll need to sand the rust and apply an enamel paint, then apply the graphics once the paint has dried thoroughly.

  • 5.  Will the decals come off?

    If properly applied (according to our application guidelines) the decals should stay adhered for up to 5 years. Problems may develop around the edges or curves, where the vinyl has been stretched. When vinyl is stretched, it has a tendency to shrink back. So when applying to convex shapes, use relief cuts and patch per the application instructions. Although you can wash your vehicle at a high pressure car wash, it's good advice to not aim the spray directly into the seams.

  • 6.  Will the camouflage fade?

    Your OVERWRAPS™ Camouflage Coverings have a 3 year durability against fading. They will continue to look good beyond that time, but you may notice a slight shift in color and density.

  • 7.  Will bubbles form in the vinyl after I apply it?

    Your OVERWRAPS™ Camouflage Coverings have a 3 year durability against fading. They will continue to look good beyond that time, but you may notice a slight shift in color and density.

  • 8.  Will paint come off when I remove my decals?

    If you have a factory paint job, or if you've had your vehicle painted professionally, everything will look like new when you remove the OVERWRAPS™ Camouflage Coverings. Graphics of this type have been applied to vehicles all over the country, and, with few exceptions, the graphics come off and the paint is not affected. If you've repainted the vehicle recently, done some patchwork yourself or if the paint was beginning to peel when installed, some will probably come up with the vinyl when removed.

  • 9.  Does extreme heat or cold affect the decals?

    No, your OVERWRAPS™ Camouflage Coverings will continue to stand out and look great in virtually all weather conditions.

  • 10.  Will the decals cut easily?

    No, it is durable and will withstand lots of abuse. But you can't run into a tree, or throw a tire jack over the edge of the truck bed that you've covered - it does have limits!

  • 11.  Can I use OVERWRAPS™ on a boat?

    Of course! It is great for boats. To insure that water doesn't begin to enter between the decals and the boat, we recommend using an edge sealer that is available from us. This will seal the edges so that the decals will withstand years in the lake.
