We then apply this optically clear film using a wet installation process, which ensures a smooth, bubble-free finish.

Maintaining Your Paint Protection Film

If you’ve recently had paint protection film installed on your vehicle, congratulations! You’ve taken an important step in preserving the beauty of your car’s paint job. But how do you care for your new film and keep it looking good? Here are some tips on how to maintain your paint protection film so that it continues to protect your car for years to come.

First and foremost, it’s important to remember that paint protection film is not magic. It will not make your car’s paint completely resistant to damage. However, it will provide a barrier between your paint and the elements, which can help to prevent scratches, chips, and other types of damage.

One of the best ways to care for your paint protection film is to wash your car regularly. This will help to remove any dirt, dust, or other debris build-up that could potentially damage the film.. Of course, it’s important to take care while washing your protected vehicle by following these tips:

    • Wash your vehicle up to once a week.
    • Use a mild car soap like GYEON Bathe. Avoid using harsh chemicals on the film.
    • Using the two-bucket hand wash method is ideal. If you must visit an automatic car wash, only visit touchless car washes.
    • Avoid spraying high pressurized water at the edges of the film. This can cause the film to lift.
    • DO NOT wax or polish your paint protection film.

You can also schedule regular maintenance washes with Urban Werks or your authorized installer to keep your vehicle’s paint protection film in tip-top shape.
