Cleaning Solution: One of the most important vehicle wrapping equipments is cleaning solution to clean surface of vehicle before applying. Cleaning solution has critical importance for foil adhesion, otherwise foil doesnt stick completely to surface of vehicle and begin to remove. There are industrial soltions for these situations.

Glove: Recently wear wrap gloves have used more and more popular.







Tape:The coating tapes are functional and very often used in large works in order to properly cover the overflowing parts of the film and mask unwanted areas.

The roughness of the raw material from the original raw material has a high risk of stratching the foil. It is recommended to use the Birken Felt Edge Wet Squeegee in vehicle and vehicle wrapping works,




Heat Gun: It is one of the main tools that provide stretching of the foil on the curved edges of the surface to be wraped. Only applicators are available with heater and squeegee, but you still prefer to use other tools to finish your work faster without risking it.
