What to Expect Immediately After Installation:
Your new film takes 30 days to fully cure.  There may be a small amount of setting solution under the film.   This is normal and will dissipate in a short time (up to a week depending on climate conditions).  Do not press on this area.  Minor variations in the material itself will also clear up after time and exposure to the elements.  Some cosmetic imperfections, often referred as “disturbed adhesive” are unavoidable and can make themselves evident as a result of the installation technique necessary to apply the film.
To keep your film looking great, follow these guidelines:
•  Wait 72 hours after installation to wash your vessel.
•  Frequent washings are recommended.
•  Use only soft terry cloth or microfiber towels on the film.
•  Do NOT wipe or scrub the film in direct sunlight or when the film is hot.
•  Do NOT use abrasive cleaners on the film.
•  Do NOT use dyed or colored car waxes on the film.
•  Do NOT use solvent based degreasers.
•  Remove any wax build‐up along film edges with a lint‐free cloth.
•  Light scratches in the film will self-heal in 20-30 minutes at room temperature. In colder conditions, or to accelerate the process, pour warm water (120°F) over the affected area.
•  Avoid using a pressure washer or high-pressure water source near the edges of the film, it can cause the film to lift and/or become damaged.
•  Detailing clay can be used to remove contaminants that are on the film.
•  Never use aggressive products to polish the film or to remove surface contamination.
To properly remove your film, follow these steps:
1.  Use a steamer to properly remove the film.  It will keep the film pliable and wet so that it can be “stretched” off the vessel.
2.  Peel one corner of the film up with your fingernail.
3.  Pull the film towards you at a shallow angle less than 45 degrees.  This angle is important to ensure that the adhesive comes off with the film rather than staying on the paint\gel.  The film should “stretch” off the vessel.
4. If any adhesive is left on the vessel, use a general adhesive remover to help loosen and remove it.
