Wrap Removal

Wrap Removal

Removing the vinyl panel from your vehicle is the final stage in your wrap’s life cycle. Vinyl wraps can last several years before you visibly notice the hours you’ve spent on the road with them. However, you may want to remove your wrap before then for several reasons, whether you want to change its outdated design, your promotion has ended, you’ve changed your name, or you just don’t like the colors.





Our Vehicle Wrap Removal Process

Taking off a vinyl wrap is tricky, with little room for error. At AP Graphics, we have the experience and expertise to complete the job and return your vehicle in excellent condition. Our experts approach every wrap removal with meticulous attention to detail, resulting in a clean, residue-free finish. Our wrap removal solutions are quick and worry-free, getting you back on the road and riding in style in no time.

Our process begins by heating the vinyl up to manufacturer specifications and prepping it for peeling. We utilize the latest heat gun technology to thoroughly break down the adhesive. Once it’s ready to detach, we’ll delicately pull the wrap with consistent pressure and speed and at a constant angle to ensure we leave nothing behind. Our team finishes up using an excellent solvent. We’ll lightly apply it to your vehicle’s exterior, letting it soak before wiping it away for a bright shine.

The Removal Process

The first step in removing a wrap is heating the vinyl according to manufacturer specifications. We use a heating source, like a heat gun, to breakdown the adhesive of the vinyl.
This step of the removal process involves peeling the corner of the material at a 45-degree angle. By pulling slowly, we ensure that the vinyl does not break apart.
It takes a lot of focus to remove a wrap cleanly. During this stage of the process, our installers maintain their pulling pressure, speed and angle to ensure a clean peel. They also pay special mind to any contoured areas of the surface.
Remove Residue
The final step of the removal process is to remove adhesive residue with a solvent. The solvent is applied to the surface, briefly, left to soak, and removed according to the specifications of the manufacturer.
