Aftercare on our services is important for preserving the life of our products. These essential aftercare instructions can help to maintain their film and vinyl condition, ensuring your enhancements stay preserved and protected.
Residual moisture will be between the film and your vehicle's glass for the first few days. When the windows are rolled down within this timeframe, the moisture may congregate and create a large pocket of water in your film. Additionally, the film can be lifted when rolled down within the curing process. So, be patient and refrain from putting your windows down for 48 hours. It will be worth the wait!
Freshly tinted windows will go through a curing process. During this time, windows may appear hazy and show pockets of liquid. This is normal. Depending on temperatures, this could take 2-7 days to completely dry out. Contact us if any distortion remains after this time period, but rest assured that most hazing is normal and resolves within a few days.
Ammonia products are known to degrade the adhesive on tints. Avoid using ammonia-based cleansers. We sell Sprayway Glass Cleaner in-house, if desired.
Like tint, PPF also has a curing process. During this time, it is important to not wash your vehicle so the curing process may occur.
Paint protection is applied as a wet application. As a result, often times liquid will remain under the clear bra for up to 1-3 weeks, depending on temperature. If you see any pockets or bubbles please to not pick at them. Give the film time to cure and contact us after a few weeks if for any reason you still see distortion. Please note that these times can be extended in the winter. Keeping the vehicle warm and dry can help expediate the curing process.
High power pressure washers can damage PPF. If using a pressure washer, keep a distance of at least 36" from the PPF surface, seams and edges. Failure to do so may cause the PPF to lift and become distorted. For best results, we recommend hand-washing your vehicle.
Use a wax that is safe for PPF. We can advise on products if you're unsure. Whenever possible, avoid seams and edges of the PPF when waxing. Build up can occur in these places, making the PPF more visible to the eye and less seamless with the body of the vehicle.
Brush-type car washes are not recommended as they can abrade the film and cause
edges to lift or chip, as well as dulling the film's appearance. Brushless car washes
Although hand washing is the preferred cleaning method, pressure washing may be
used under these conditions:
Soften difficult contaminants such as bug splatter, bird droppings, tree sap and similar
contaminants by soaking them for several minutes with very hot, soapy water. Rinse
thoroughly and dry. If further cleaning is needed, test one of these products in an
inconspicuous area to ensure no damage to the wrap film:
Spot clean the contaminants. Do not use rough scrubbing or abrasive tools, which will scratch the film. Wash and rinse off all residue immediately.
Wipe off spills immediately to avoid degrading the vinyl and adhesive. Then wash, rinse and
dry as soon as possible.
