Cars & Motorbikes
If you have an old car and want to change the appearance, or you have a new car and want to protect it, car wrapping, also called enveloping, is the answer. You can choose from hundreds of different colors to give your car a new look, or if you only want to protect it against scratching and stone chipping you can choose a clear film for protection.
Now there are several companies in Brasilia that offer their services, but after some research they turn out to be expensive, especially if you are a gringo – gringo tax applies……. But after some enquiries to a former Audi sales executive, we found the company Calixa Film who are specialists in not only applying car wraps, but also solar window films. They also wrap motorcycles, scooters, etc.
The team from Calixta Film are run by Paulinho Pelicula and Lucas Calixta, and they are as professional as they come. They are the preferred car film applier by companies like Audi, Porsche, BMW, Volvo to name a few. And best of all, they will come to the location of your choice to do the work. Before they start the work, they will consult with you what are the best materials and how long the job will take.
If you want to order the material by yourself, look for a manufacturer called ALLTAK in Sao Paulo to choose the color and pattern you want. ALLTAK is the premium manufacturer of car wraps in Brazil.
Now you can’t buy from the company itself as they are a wholesaler. But you can find a seller in Mercado Livre Brazil that will sell you the required length you need to wrap your car. For a SUV you will need about 15 meters.
And if you change the color of your car, do not forget to inform DETRAN about it, so they can change the color description in your registration papers, otherwise you can have some problems down the road.
