The alternative solution to the conventional car paint is available here in Brunei Darussalam; The Foilacar. The Foilacar is the leading German specialist for car foiling technologies and services since 2007. The company started off in Germany, foiling taxis and police cars and the business became a huge success in the UAE. Now these services are available in Brunei Darussalam at iDesign Concept Sendirian Berhad. The shop is located at Block E, No 12, Dato Paduka Lim Seng Kok Building, Spg 628 in Jalan Tutong.
Here’s the breakdown about the Foilacar:
Instead of painting, the car is wrapped with a special vinyl which has a wide range of colors to choose from. Colors ranging from matte colors, gloss, metallic and also mirror-finish like colors such as chrome and the uber cool chrome gold are available at iDesign. The wrapping application is not limited to exterior of the car but the interior component as well such as door sills, dashboard & etc.
The advantages of wrapping a car with regards to conventional car painting is that the wrapping procedure is fast, you can still retain the original paint when you decided to remove the vinyl (Foilacar assure no damage to the original paint work),additional protection and color consistency (no more uneven color shade, a common problem for car paint work).
For extra protection, iDesign Concept recommends the Clarita and OraGuard. The Clarita and OraGuard is a clear film that can add protection to your existing car paint without affecting the color of the car.
According to Pg Annuar (Operation manager of iDesign concept), the price for the wrapping the car depends on the vehicle size, complexity of work as well as the type of vinyl selected for the wrap. For a mid size saloon car, the price starts at approximately 4-5k and onwards (depending on the type of vinyl selected). On top of it, the company offers a 1 year warranty for workmanship and 2 year warranty for the material.
