The Effects of Rock Salt and Deicers on Your Car Wrap


Winter is here, which means owners of wrapped vehicles must beware of how to take proper care of their graphics.

Rock salt and other de-icers that are typically used in the winter to rid the roads of snow can present a variety of issues for wrapped vehicles. These chemicals can eat away at your vinyl wrap, causing damage to your costly investment.

In order to decrease the likelihood of any potential damage, you should aim to wash your car once per week, or as often as possible after coming in contact with snow removal chemicals. In addition to washing your car with wrap-safe materials, keeping your vehicle sheltered in a garage or under a tarp will also help to reduce damages. If you notice any small tears, breaks, or holes in your vinyl wrap, report the issue to your installer immediately and seek to fix it as soon as possible.

By keeping all of these factors in mind, your vehicle wrap will be able to weather even the coldest of days. If you are interested in purchasing a wrap this winter or looking for further assistance on how to help your wrap survive the cold weather, contact a professional graphics company like JMR Graphics today.
