Will the environment damage the wrap?
Wrap films (just like paint) are degraded by prolonged exposure to sun and atmospheric pollutants, particularly on horizontal surfaces. Whenever possible, store the electric scooter in a garage or at least in a shaded area during the day. At night, protect the scooter from dew or rain, which may contain acidic pollutants (a common problem in many large metropolitan areas).
Can wraps be installed over paint scratches, or dents?
Wrap film is very thin and flexible to allow it to conform beautifully to the contours of your scooter, but that means it also conforms to any imperfection such as a scratch or dent, and that will show through.
Can a damaged wrap be repaired?
We do not recommend replacing just one part of a wrap as you may not be satisfied with the visual differences that may be apparent, including color shifts due to using film from a different lot or printing done at a later date, and the slight fading or change in gloss that may have occurred on the installed film. However, if you'd still like to proceed we can definitely figure something out!
Can I remove the wrap?
You can, however exposure to sun, heat and other environmental factors will eventually cause the film’s adhesive to degrade. As that happens, removal becomes more difficult and time consuming. After 3 years it is recommended to use heat to help you remove.
