Applying vinyl graphics to car with ceramic coating

Recommended Posts

Seems like a big deal in car circles to treat paint with various ceramic coatings to get a better shine. Does that cause any issues with adhesion of vinyl graphics to the treated paint surface? I’m still preparing graphics before I open a website for sales and I’m new to the business.

Never done it, but I would think vinyl would stick very well. However, if they decided to take the decal off, it may take the coating with it.

I would contact a few vinyl manufacturers, and ask them the question you posted here.

It's hydrophobic, I would think that might cause sticking issues, but I have no idea.

I suggest contacting tech support with Oracal/Orafol. If you can get a real person to talk to they will give you some good tips and probably give you a difinitive answer. I called them about their HT55 Oratape tranfer paper for matt finish indoor vinyl and they were very helpful and gave me all sorts of interesting data that helped me better understand how that particular product perfomed. This is just a users forum and MAYBE some here have done some applications but you are getting someones opinion and their take vs a manufacturer who knows for sure whether your going to have complications or not. With cermaic coatings having entered the norm (we bought a new Hyundia and that was an option from the dealer) I guarantee they have gotten out ahead of this already.
