3D & 4D Number Plates Care/Maintenance

In the realm of car customization, the details matter. Your number plate, often an overlooked component, can now be elevated to a whole new level with 3D and 4D number plates. These sleek alternatives to standard plates not only add depth and dimension but also exude a sense of sophistication. However, like any other automotive accessory, proper maintenance is key to ensuring their longevity and preserving their pristine appearance.

Understanding 3D and 4D Number Plates

Before delving into maintenance tips, let's grasp what sets 3D and 4D number plates apart from their conventional counterparts. While standard plates lay flat, 3D and 4D plates boast raised characters that lend them a more upscale aesthetic. The primary disparity lies in their construction methods. 3D plates typically utilize a gel resin, imparting a tactile quality, whereas 4D plates are laser-cut, resulting in a distinctively raised appearance.

The choice between 3D and 4D plates ultimately boils down to personal preference. With a large range of styles and colours available in both variants, finding one that complements your vehicle's aesthetic is a breeze.

Maintenance Tips for Longevity

  1. Gentle Cleaning: When it comes to cleaning your 3D/4D number plates, a gentle touch is paramount. Opt for handwashing using a soft brush or microfiber cloth along with a mild car cleaning product like snow foam. A soft clean will effectively dislodge any dirt or grime without risking damage to the plates. While machine washing is feasible, exercise caution and avoid power washing the plates directly within a 0.5-meter range. Additionally, refrain from spraying road traffic remover (acid) directly on the plates to prevent discolouration of the digits and weakening of the bond.

  2. Mindful Driving: While these plates are resilient, your driving habits can influence their lifespan. Off-road excursions, driving through partially flooded roads or deep puddles, are ill-advised as they pose a risk of damage to both your vehicle and the number plate. In the unfortunate event of damage, reach out to us for assessment and potential repair options.

By adhering to these simple maintenance practices, you can ensure that your 3D/4D number plates retain their allure and durability for years to come. With a little care and attention, your vehicle will continue to turn heads on the road, showcasing its personalized touch with pride.
