How To Apply, Use And Reuse Carbon Fiber Skins

carbonfiber2When you make a valuable investment in a smartphone, tablet or gaming system, it makes sense to want to protect and personalize it. Now you can individualize your favorite electronic devices with superior grade Official 3M Vinyl coverings. Vinyl (polyvinyl chloride) is a strong material which is both heat-resistant and weather-resistant. The word plastic itself comes from the Greek word plastikos which means “capable of being shaped or molded.” Malleable in the manufacturing process, the high-quality 3M vinyl is shaped for a precise fit. Tough and durable once formed, these high-grade vinyl coverings resist heat, scratching, cracking and fading.

You can find a variety of excellent skins designed to perfectly fit various smartphones, including the Nexus 5 & 4, iPhone 5s, 5, 4, 4s, Moto X, HTC One, Blackberry Z10 and Galaxy S4. Tablet skins include the Nexus 7 2013, Nexus 7 2012, iPad mini, iPad 3 & 2. Finally, you can find skins for gaming devices such as the PlayStation 4 & 3, PlayStation Vita and Xbox 360. They come in a variety of colors (black, white, red, silver, gold, orange, yellow, blue, green and mahogany) and textures (Carbon Fiber, Brushed Titanium, Leather, Wood and powder-coated True Color), so you will be sure to find one that perfectly fits your personality and style.

The vinyl skins are easy to apply and can be removed and reapplied if necessary. The carbon fiber nexus 7 skins (2nd generation), for example, are to be applied as follows: First remove the front skin from the backing and place it on a line about an inch above the backing’s bottom edge. Next align the top of the skin with the edge of the nexus 7 device and press down. Lift up the unattached bottom of the skin and remove the backing. Lower the skin to the device and press around the edges. Now hold a hair dryer slightly above the nexus 7 and work your way around the edges of the skin only. Give the edges a final pressing and you’re done. Do essentially the same with the piece for the back of the nexus 7, but first place the camera cut-out over the camera and pivot the rest of the skin into position. When removing the back piece from the backing, be careful not to tear it near the letter-holes or camera cut-out. Specific instructions for the skins for each device are found are included with the skin, but the process is easy and essentially the same as for the carbon fiber nexus 7 skins. If removing a skin, do it slowly and carefully (and perhaps even loosen it with a hairdryer first). If reapplying a skin, follow the same process as the first application.

These skins do not leave any adhesive residue and are meticulously measured to fit perfectly with specific devices to micro-millimeter precision. Why use ill-fitting and inferior protective and decorative coverings for your devices when superior quality and perfectly aligned cut-outs and sizing are available?
