ppf paint protection fim



Thanks! Message sent.


Thank you for visiting First Choice Detailing (FCD). As the Paint Protection Film (PPF) has just been installed; it is our duty to inform you on how to keep the film maintained and what not to do in the first 7 days of collecting your car.


Please do not wash your car 7 days after the film has been installed. The moisture between the film and paint is still evaporating, the edges are also drying so that the adhesive can bond to the paint correctly. The use of shampoos will interfere with this process.


During this time, you may notice small bubbles or hazing in the PPF’s finish. During the next 2-3 weeks these will begin to dissipate as the film settles and the moisture evaporates.


After 7 days you can wash your car as described in the wash guide on the other side of this document. If you do not follow this guide you will be liable for any damage to the PPF.


If bug or bird residue becomes fixed to the film, you must remove immediately as if left on, the acids may etch away and damage the film. The best way to remove the residue is with pressurised water from 3 feet away. If you can control the pressure, place on the lowest setting. Alternatively use warm water. Pour on to the residue and leave for 3 minutes then wipe off with a soft microfibre cloth.


If you usually polish or wax your car on a regular basis there are some restrictions on what you can use. Polishes are abrasive and may contain Petroleum or Solvents, these products will damage the film and solvents can remove the films adhesion. Causing it to lift. The only waxes which can be used are Carnauba. Other waxes may reduce the films finish. Do not apply over the film’s edges.


Surface scratches and swirl marks in the film will heal over a period of time, if you needed to accelerate the process the pour warm water (not boiling) over the desired area, that will help the upper most layer of the film to morph back into its original state.
