All You Need to Know About Cast Vinyl
High-Performance Vinyl for Your Vehicles
Also known as “2-mil vinyl”, it is a premium product used to create high-quality vehicle graphics. Liquid vinyl (PVC Plasticizers, and pigments) is applied onto a casting paper. As the paper moves over the roll through an oven, the solvents used to make the product a liquid evaporate resulting in a dry and very stable vinyl film.
Benefits of Cast Vinyl Graphics

Components of Self-Adhesive Vinyl Graphics
The liner (the back portion of the vinyl), the adhesive (high-performance acrylic adhesive), the vinyl film (50 to 150microns thickness), and the pre-mask (protects the vinyl).
Cleaning Your Vehicle Graphics
Durability and the integrity of color can be extended with proper care and limiting exposure to the elements. For example, avoid using cleaners with ammonia and try parking your vehicle in shaded areas.
To properly care for your cast vinyl vehicle graphics, you can use detergents specially designed for automotive purposes and rinse with plenty of clean water. And don’t forget to dry it!
When washing your vehicle graphics, do it in a shaded area. Stay away from pressure washers and any other things that may cause it to peel or discolor.
