Chrome Car Wraps – Are They Here to Stay?


Chrome car wraps offer an eye-catching aesthetic to make your vehicle stand out in a crowd. However, is this new trend just a fad, or is it here to stay?

As matte wraps gained popularity during the 2000s, exotic car owners could enjoy an eye-catching alternative to their typical glossy paint finish: matte. But recently, another eye-catching aesthetic has begun making waves: chrome. This may soon overtake matte as one of the top wrapping styles.

Chrome car wraps add a brassy, reflective surface to your vehicle that captures light like a kitchen chrome sink. While their aesthetic appeal may be unrivaled, their shiny surface attracts dirt and rust much faster due to the chrome’s reflective qualities, which highlight imperfections like scratches and dents far more than with traditional gray marble countertops.

Even with these drawbacks, many car enthusiasts still opt for chrome as a wrap color choice. Its magnetic appeal cannot be denied when applied professionally to your entire vehicle, and chrome car wraps protect original paintwork against damage, which in turn increases resale value and can increase resale value when sold later on.

If you’re considering installing a black chrome car wrap, ensure it is made from top-grade materials and installed by an experienced professional.

Carbon Fiber

Carbon fiber is one of the high-tech materials that intrigue car enthusiasts and engineers alike. Its dark metallic look evokes classiness and speed while its strength and stiffness come at a much lower weight compared to steel or other materials; carbon fiber also offers excellent chemical resistance properties; unfortunately, it’s pretty costly; however, at Xometry we offer our black carbon vinyl wrap car wrap as an affordable alternative.

Carbon fiber production begins with a polymer precursor such as rayon or petroleum pitch, heated to extremely high temperatures in an anaerobic gas mixture to energize its atoms, driving off non-carbon bits and turning them carbon-based. Once formed, fibers are spun into long continuous filaments before being washed and stretched for alignment purposes before finally packaged into large groups called tow or rovings for storage and shipment.

This tow is then placed within a supporting structure made of thermosetting plastics such as epoxy resins that hold together and connect all of its fibers, binding them tightly with one another. Depending on its manufacturer, this matrix may be produced through various processes – most frequently the Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) process, while some also employ rayon or petroleum pitch processes to achieve similar goals.

Once carbon fiber has been integrated into its supporting matrix, it can be used as an additive in other materials or formed into larger panels and tubular sections. 3D printing also becomes possible by adding micro strands as filament for conventional printers or by printing continuous filament in 3D parts.

Our carbon fiber black chrome car wrap has high-grade pressure-sensitive acrylic adhesive for effortless application to vehicle surfaces. Additionally, it comes equipped with a protective layer on top and a double-sided silicone-coated release liner underneath that safeguards it against scratches or other forms of damage during installation and transportation, medium stretch ability for effortless manipulation onto curved surfaces as well as pairing well with satin black, gloss black, matte silver vinyl films to create an eye-catching two-toned effect.
