Through HEXIS USA, we've been introduced to a wide variety of vinyl wrap materials in many colors, sheens and textures that we'd like to share with our reader audience.  Hexis is a European manufacturer headquartered in France with USA warehouses on both the East and the West coasts.

Hexis car wrap films, like others in the premium vinyl wrap market, are a "cast" vinyl with an advanced adhesive that simplifies wrap installation.  This type of wrap film can actually be used to wrap a variety of non-automotive objects as well.  As an example, we used a Hexis matte metallic silver vinyl to wrap a piano used by Alicia Keys to sing the national anthem at the 2013 Super Bowl.

Why is it important to consider "cast" wrap vinyl instead of "calendared" or "intermediate" vinyl for car wraps?  Cast vinyl, as a result of the way in which it is manufactured, is more conformable.  This means that it can stretch and conform to irregularly shaped surfaces much more easily than a calendared vinyl, which is typically a stiffer, thicker material.  Cast vinyl will also shrink less over time than a calendared vinyl.

The types of wrap vinyl portrayed here can be used to do complete color change vehicle wraps, or they can be used to create accent areas in designer wraps on cars.
