What is 4D carbon fiber vinyl?
4D is just the 4th generation of carbon fiber prints. Like 3D carbon fiber, 4D carbon fiber comes with a matte finish. However, 4D can be considered semi-gloss, as the matte finish on the 4D has a slight shine to it but does not have the “wet” look like 5D or 6D carbon fiber. The 4D print has a swirled pattern.

What is carbon fiber vinyl?
Carbon fiber wrap or vinyl wrap is a textured film or sticker emulating carbon fiber. Some manufacturers offer vinyl that closely imitates the look and texture of carbon fiber. However, this adhesive-backed film doesn’t have the same properties and is dramatically less expensive than the real thing.
Which carbon fiber weave is the strongest?
A unidirectional weave creates a carbon fiber sheet that’s very strong in the direction of the fibers, but weak in the opposite direction. Plain and twill weaves, on the other hand, have more uniform strength since they’re strongest at the points where the fibers cross in either direction.
Can wrapped cars be washed?
You can bring your wrapped vehicle to an automated brushless car wash, though hand washing is safer and more thorough. Brush car washes may be too rough on the film, degrading it and causing peeling and lifted edges. If a car wash uses water spray and no brushes, it should be safe for most wraps.
