Caring for your SpeedFilm with regular cleaning is essential to maintaining the condition and finish of your vehicle, and it’s even more important to do it correctly. We highly suggest taking these following steps to prolong the life of your SpeedFilm product.
You may see a few water bubbles under the film. This is normal and will go away once the film has cured (up to 45 days).
Check film edges the day following installation to make sure they are secure. Any areas that have lifted should be pushed down as soon as possible to prevent debris from collecting along the edge.
Dust and use SpeedFilm Polish on the film regularly to prevent dirt build-up around the edges and to maintain its glossy finish.
Use a liquid-based car wash soap, extra-soft wash-mit, and water to wash your SpeedFilm Paint Protection Film. Owners of cars with SpeedFilm should avoid brushless car washes due to the type of chemicals used in these machines, which may cause the film to become cloudy.
When using a high-pressure water hose to wash, keep at least 36 inches away from your film's edges and surface.
Wipe down with a clean and dust-free chamois and apply SpeedFilm Polish and wipe dry with a microfiber drying towel. This is very important! SpeedFilm Polish will keep the film’s finish glossy and more resistant to stains and discoloring. Failure to properly maintain the film may void your warranty.
Bird droppings and bug splats should be removed as quickly as possible by flushing the area with lukewarm water. Some bugs may leave stains that normally bleach out in the sun after a few weeks.
SpeedFilm recommends replacing product every five years to ensure maximum protection. Film that is left on for longer than five years becomes progressively harder to remove without damaging vehicle finish.
Certain petroleum distillates that are present in some car polishes, waxes, or bug and tar cleaning agents cause urethane to discolor. The following products have been tested as safe for use on SpeedFilm:
Use SpeedFilm Polish after every wash to help keep your SpeedFilm glossy and looking new, easier to clean, and stain resistant.
