How durable are vinyl goalie helmet wraps?
Vinyl goalie helmet wraps are very durable. However, their lifespan will depend on several factors. These factors include:
The quality of the vinyl: High-quality vinyl, like we use at Competitive Edge Design, is more likely to withstand the rigors of hockey play than lower-quality vinyl. Also laminating the vinyl, before it is applied like we do, will help its durability.
Application process: If the vinyl is not installed on the mask properly, it may be more likely to peel or fade. If you don’t feel comfortable installing your wrap, let us do the hard work!
Amount of use: The more you use your helmet, the more wear and tear the vinyl will have. If you play hockey regularly, you can expect your vinyl wrap to last for a few seasons.
Climate: Vinyl wraps can be damaged by extreme temperatures. If you live in a climate with harsh winters or extremely hot summers, your vinyl wrap may not last as long.
How and where it is stored: When you are not using your helmet, keep it dry. You can take it out of your bag and store it in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. This will help to prevent the vinyl from fading or cracking.
By following these tips, you can help to ensure that your vinyl goalie helmet wrap will last for as long as possible.
