Taking proper steps during the installation process can help prevent bubbles from showing up under the surface of a vinyl wrap; however, in the event that bubbling does occur, it is important to ensure that your vinyl wrap technician knows how to fix vinyl wrap bubbles. The dedicated vinyl wrap installation technicians from Wrap Guys are highly trained and skilled in applying vehicle wraps in a way that prevents bubbling.

Preventing Vinyl Wrap Bubbles

While vinyl wrap bubbles can be caused in a variety of different ways, the best way to prevent bubbling is to follow installation procedures that ensure adequate surface preparation and that the installation process is performed in optimal environment conditions, in terms of humidity and temperature. A professional installation technician will take the time to properly clean and dry all surfaces that the vinyl is being applied to. This is extremely important because leaving even the smallest amount of dirt or debris on the vehicle’s surface can lead to bubbling.

It is also important to keep in mind that lower quality vinyl materials may be more prone to bubbling when compared to high-quality materials. Make sure to talk to your vinyl wrap design company to find out specific information about the quality of the vinyl materials they use for their vehicle wraps. A reputable vinyl wrap provider will be able to help you select the best materials for your vehicle wrap.

Removing Vinyl Wrap Bubbles

While vinyl wrap bubbles can be easily removed during the installation process, it is important to note that the longer a bubble stays underneath the surface of the vinyl wrap, the more problems it can create. In the event that you find a bubble in your vehicle wrap, the installation technician will be able to help you remove it by taking one of the following steps, depending on the size of the bubble:

  • Use an extremely tiny pin to put a small hole in the centre of the bubble in order to pop it.
  • Squeegee around the bubble to press the air out of it.
  • Use special rivet tools to remove and prevent bubbles.
