What actually is Vinyl wrap used in phones and other electronics?

Interestingly enough, vinyl wraps used in phones, laptops, tablets, and other electronic devices is the same material used in wrapping exotic cars. Vinyl, also known as polyvinyl chloride is a type of thermoplastic that can be processed using heat. Vinyl Sheet or Vinyl Film is a thin sheet of vinyl that sticks and takes the form of electronic devices to which it is attached.

  • Making phone, tablet, laptop, gaming console skins

dbrand vs Slickwraps: Who makes better skins?


There’s no doubt about it. dbrand and Slickwraps are two of the largest skins manufacturers in the world. You won’t go wrong with choosing either.

However, it’s worth noting that Slickwraps has a lot of skin designs and colors available. On the other hand, after-sales customer support isn’t all that great. With dbrand, you get better support but the selection of 3M vinyl skins isn’t as large. In the end, go with the brand that offers the design you really like. The price of skins from both brands is very similar. For the money, buying high-quality skins is definitely worth the money.

We also have an in-depth dbrand vs Slickwraps article where we have discussed the pros and cons of each skin brand. You may want to have a look at that before making your skin purchase.
