Protecting VinylEfx Graphics with Urethane Clear Coat

Airbrush artist, Jimmy Jackson of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, has used VinylEfx films in his motorcycle designs for many years. In all of that time, he has never experienced a graphics failure. How does he do it?

In the photograph shown below, Jimmy first painted the ghost flames as the background. Then he applied this tribal design which he created using a VinylEfx Multilens film. After pin striping the outline around the film, he protected his artwork with four coats of a urethane clear coat.

 

Since each paint system is different, test the compatibility of the film with the clear coat prior to using it on a job. You can request a sample of VinylEfx from your distributor or you can click here to request a sample directly from us. As we like to tell people...test, don't guess.
