WrapFest, the inaugural event dedicated to vehicle customisation and vinyl wrapping, will open its doors at the prestigious Silverstone racing circuit this week from 26-27 April 2023. The event will showcase pioneering wrapping technologies and new product innovations from more than 30 exhibitors.
Pole Position event sponsor, Hexis, will showcase its recent SKINTAC range expansion which includes new wrap colours and finishes. Visitors will be able to explore the highly anticipated #HX20889W Deep Black “Wet Look” Satin wrap for the first time ever at the event.
Meanwhile, global wide and grand format print suppliers, Innotech, will showcase its brand new 830 AutoMark™ Cast Wrap Vinyl with DRIFT® Technology. The premium vinyl wrap offers installers a full-body gloss white finish engineered to provide repositionability, slideability and removability. Innotech’s latest innovation ensures wrapping professionals are left with a four-year clean removable guarantee.
APA will reveal a further addition to its ULTRAJET effects range during the event, including a new limited-edition colour. The refined cast system with repositionable adhesive – ‘Ultra-Jet System’ – offers installers a range of finishes including the ultra-shiny and high gloss iridescent finish in Gemstone and the APA Signature Collection.
