International wrap installer Ivan Tenchev from Bulgaria and local 3M endorsed vehicle wrapping installer Vaughn Repsold hosted an advanced training workshop at the 3M Graphics South Africa Woodmead Head Office.
The workshop brought together various business owners from the wrapping industry to discuss ideas and understand the much finer and advanced factors involved in wrapping a vehicle.
The event created a platform for different nationalities to compare a number of different factors to consider when wrapping a vehicle – namely climate, choice of detergents, wiping materials and overall surface preparation.
Tenchev and Repsold spent the day demonstrating on a vehicle and imparting their application knowledge, which has contributed to them winning or entering the next phases of various wrap competitions around the world, such as FESPA World Wrap Masters.
Repsold made it to the quarter finals in the Battle World Tour Hamburg Messe, 2016-2017. Tenchev won last year’s FESPA Wrap Masters Eurasia in Istanbul, Turkey.
Tenchev, who runs his own vehicle application business Astra Folio with his wife and has travelled the world to learn as much as he can about the vehicle graphics installation business, said that he would like to establish an online training centre, as he is passionate about helping new installers and using quality materials. He emphasised that vehicle cleanliness and surface preparation is the most important thing when wrapping a vehicle.
