WRAP CARE

CARING FOR YOUR VEHICLE GRAPHICS & WRAPS

Care for your vehicle graphics like you would any fine paint finish. Use high quality products designed specifically for car care and these cleaning and maintenance procedures will help keep your vehicle graphics looking their best.

WASH REGULARLY

Wash whenever the car appears dirty. Contaminants allowed to remain on the wrap may be more difficult to remove during cleaning.

Rinse off as much dirt and grit as possible with a spray of water.

Then, use a wet, non-abrasive detergent such as Meguiar’s NXT Generation Car Wash or Deep Crystal Car

Wash with a soft, clean cloth or sponge.

Rinse thoroughly with clean water. We recommend using a hose, not a pressure washer.  To reduce water spotting, immediately use a silicone squeegee to remove water and finish with a clean microfiber cloth.

IMPORTANT NOTE

We do not recommend using wax or other similar coatings on vehicle graphics.  We do not recommend using automatic car washes.

 

DIFFICULT CONTAMINANTS & SPOT CLEANING

 

Soften difficult contaminants such as bug splatter, bird droppings, tree sap and similar contaminants by soaking them for several minutes with hot, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly and dry.

If further cleaning is needed, test an appropriate product such as Meguiar’s Gold Class Bug and Tar Remover in an inconspicuous area to ensure no damage to the graphics.  Spot clean the contaminants. Do not use rough scrubbing or abrasive tools, which will scratch the film. Wash and rinse off all residue immediately.

FUEL SPILLS

 

Wipe off immediately to avoid degrading the vinyl and adhesive. Then wash, rinse and dry as in the standard washing instructions.

STORE INDOORS OR UNDER COVER WHENEVER POSSIBLE

 

Vinyl graphics (just like paint) are degraded by prolonged exposure to sun and atmospheric pollutants, particularly on the horizontal surfaces such as bonnet, boot lid and roof. Whenever possible, store in a garage or at least in a shaded area during the day. At night protect the car from dew or rain, which may contain acidic pollutants (a common problem in many large metropolitan areas).

 

When a garage is not available, consider using a cloth car cover at night. If your graphics start to discolour or turn brown, immediately remove the graphics from the vehicle to avoid staining the underlying paint.
