After all, every wrap we install is a reflection of our skills & talent, which is why we wish to share with you the proper aftercare maintenance information.
[Before handling any chemical products, always read the container label and the MSDS.]

For cleaning graphics with an over laminate Film:
Use a cleaner designed for high-quality painted surfaces. The cleaner must be wet, nonabrasive and without strong solvents.

Hand washing exterior graphics:
• Flush the graphic with clean water to remove loose dirt particles. A trigger-type hose nozzle is convenient for this purpose.
• Use a mild liquid detergent and water solution and wash the graphic with a soft brush, rag or sponge.
• Wash thoroughly from the top down.
• Avoid abrading the graphic by unnecessary scrubbing.
• After applying the cleaning solution, keep a steady stream of water flowing on the graphic to wash away dirt particles.
• Rinse the entire graphic thoroughly with clean water. Allow graphic to dry naturally.

Removing difficult contaminants:
Some contaminant’s may remain after following the normal cleaning procedures. Most contaminant’s can be removed using one of these methods. Other cleaning products and methods should be used only on a customer test-and-approve basis.

To remove tar, oil, diesel smut or bituminous material:
• Wipe with a rag dampened with kerosene, mineral spirits, heptane, or VM & P naphtha. Do not use other solvents.
• Wash immediately with detergent and water, and then rinse with clean water.
• Avoid abrading the graphic by unnecessary scrubbing.
• Wipe the graphic with a water-soaked brush, rag or sponge to wash away the detergent and dirt.
• Dry the graphic with clean toweling.
