Once installed, refrain from washing the vehicle for at least 48 hours. We suggest you keep the vehicle in the sun to help cure and dry the protective film. Washing after that time presents no problem, but be careful if using a pressure washer along leading edges of film. When waxing the vehicle, some wax may build up along the film edges. This wax build-up can easily be removed with a soft toothbrush.
Most installations take between four to six hours in duration.
You can have SpeedFilm applied at any time. The best time to have SpeedFilm applied is when the car is new or has not sustained much road wear. Several Atlanta area dealerships will apply SpeedFilm for you at your request.
SpeedFilm resists yellowing because the film is constructed of thermoplastic urethane, a tough, conformable material that is covered by a clear coat layer. The film contains UV protection to counteract harmful ultraviolet rays that can cause yellowing.
There are precise conditions and specific techniques for applying the film. To ensure the best results and guarantee your warranty, SpeedFilm should be applied by a professional SpeedFilm technician.
Yes, we suggest keeping it polished, but not absolutely necessary. Keeping the material waxed or polished helps prevent road debris from adhering to its surface (i.e. bugs and tar). It makes clean-up a snap! SpeedFilm polish is the best products to use.
