Frequently Asked Questions
• What is a NVG Wrap™?
NVG Wraps™, Camo Skins, Camo Wraps, NOD Wraps, (whatever you wanna call them) are non-permanent, adhesive-backed vinyl stickers you can apply to your gear to change the surface appearance. The ones offered by Nocorium™ are manufactured from an automotive grade vinyl, precision cut to the device it is specifically designed to go on.
• What colors do NVG Wraps™ come in?
We have the ability to do a wide variety of colors. For the initial release of the product line we are producing them in Crye Precision™ camo patterns: Multicam, Multicam Tropic, Multicam Arid, and Multicam Black. Solid colors and other camos will be available soon.
• Multicam ...
Yup. Legit, licensed Multicam camo patterns exclusively from Crye Precision™.
• What about other colors?
Soon. We're pushing hard to get these first production lots in various Multicam patterns to dealers and consumers. Don't worry, we're passionate about colors and patterns beyond Multicam too.
• What other devices will these NVG Wraps™ be available for?
DTNVG, RNVG, and PVS-14 comprise the initial production run. We already have patterns ready for ANVIS9, PVS-15 and PVS-31. We've produced small quantities of these other patterns for select MIL and LE clientele. We will be rolling them out in wider distribution numbers soon. There have also been a handful of requests come in for BNVDs and the Sionyx Aurora Digital Camera which may be available in a future release.
• Where does each piece of NVG Wrap™ get placed?
If you look at each product listing on this site, a numbered layout chart is provided as a guide (just a digital image, a physical copy is not included). Referencing the guide, look at the NVG Wrap™ set you've purchased, then place the vinyl wrap pieces onto the NVG Device according to the annotated guide. Some sections of the vinyl pieces are longer than needed on purpose and will overlap onto itself as that allows better overall adhesion.
* Please note: Nocorium™ and associated dealers are not responsible for damaged NVG Wraps™ due to improper end user installation. If it's your first time applying NVG Wraps™, we strongly recommend you take your time with the material and plan ahead as to how the pieces are supposed to go on. The material is relatively forgiving to work with, and you may be able to reposition it a couple times, but if it gets stuck to itself it will most likely stay that way as the adhesive is very strong (intentionally so).
• I'm still not sure how to apply them / remove them. Is there a video I can follow?
Actually, yes! You should check out our HOW-TO Section! We've shot videos of how to remove old Nocorium NVG Wraps™, how to prep/clean your NVG device before applying a new set of NVG Wraps™, as well as how to apply the wraps onto your device. Please note: We don't have wrap application videos pertaining to every device we offer wraps for ... because we don't have every device on hand at all times. But the launch products, DTNVG, RNVG, and PVS14, have videos.
• Are the vinyl wraps reflective under IR light?
The NVG Wraps™ are NOT reflective at all. They have a matte finish under visible light. When viewed under both passive and active IR light, the material blends in about the same as regular multicam fabric. In fact, the material has a much lower visual signature under IR when compared to the black polymer and black anodized components of the device itself:
• Are the Nocorium NVG Wraps™ heavy???
No. Not in the slightest. The vinyl material used is a premium material but it is not a thick nor heavy vinyl. An entire set of Nocorium NVG wraps™ on a set of Bino NVGs, is under 4 grams. An entire set of Nocorium NVG Wraps™ for a monocular NVG (PVS-14 etc) would be under 1.7 grams in total. For comparison sake, here's a wad of Nocorium NVG Wraps™ freshly ripped off a bino NVG device ... and on the right we have a Matbock Tarsier Eclipse™ (a device popularly used by some NVG users to allow for simultaneous near and far perception) that weighs 29.4 grams each ... and are used in pairs on bino NVGs to cover both objective lenses for a 60 gram total additive weight. And no one is complaining about 60 grams, so an additional 2-4 grams of NVG Wraps™ should be imperceptible to users.
• Nocorium™ ... that's an interesting name.
We think so too! If you're curious how we came up with Nocorium™, we have a dedicated page with a fun video (well, we think it's fun).
• So why buy a Nocorium NVG Wrap™?
There are lots of buying choices in the world today. You're free to spend your money however you want. We're just a small USA based company, designing and conceiving products in the good ol' US of A, manufacturing this product from USA sourced materials, supporting USA production and logistic channels, and most importantly (for us), employing Americans. We hope these are qualities that attract like minded people and groups. :)
