These are the top Brands. Each Brand Makes 2 Kind of Vinyl's. 1 Kind is Calendared the other Kind is Cast.

TYPE OF VINYL
Calendared is only for flat surface. Meaning Flat. *I Don't Use Any Calendared Vinyl For Wraps Regardless of the Brand.
Cast Vinyl is the one used by me 100% of the time for all wraps, this is very helpful as it has a longer life span, great for curves, rivets.

VINYL TIERS

Now that you know the first part, the next part is knowing that each brand also makes 1-3 different tiers of cast vinyl's.

What’s the Difference?

•Cast Vinyl

Named for the process that it goes through in manufacturing, cast vinyl starts as a liquid then is poured into a mold (aka a cast) and is approximately 2 mils thick. The product is stretchy and more conformable; it is often referred to as High Performance or Premium film. Cast vinyl is recommended for complex surfaces with curves, rivets, and corrugations. These films typically last 7+ years outdoors.

•Calendered Vinyl

Like the name suggests, the product starts as a solid and goes through a series of rollers to flatten it out. Calendered vinyl is usually 2.5 mils to 4 mils thick. Referred to as Short Term, Economy, or Intermediate films, the product is not conformable and doesn’t stretch as well. It is best for flat, simple surfaces. These films are less durable than cast and typically last 3-6 years.

•Choosing the Right Vinyl for the Job

When determining what type of vinyl is best for your project, the most important thing to consider is the application you are using it for. Cast film is more resistant to weather abuse and sun energy, making it perfect for long-term applications like vehicle graphics and lasting signage. Calendered film tends to shrink over time, resulting in less resistance to the elements. However, it is more economically efficient, making it perfect for shorter term signs and banners such as “Sale” signs and ever-changing applications.
