AFTERCARE

CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR BRAND NEW CERAMIC BROS. PURCHASE. ON THIS PAGE WE WILL DISCUSS HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR NEW CERAMIC COATING AND PAINT PROTECTION FILM

Choosing to proactively shield your vehicle from environmental toxins, UV rays, and road debris is a smart strategy for preserving its factory-new condition. At Ceramic Bros, we emphasize the significance of aftercare. Employing top-notch detailing products is key to maintaining the excellent condition of your coatings and films.

The following information offers a comprehensive guide to ensuring your vehicle's Ceramic Coating, Paint Protection Film, and Window Film remain in exceptional condition.

HOW TO CARE FOR CERAMIC COATING

CLEANING

  • For exterior cleaning, we recommend HAND WASH ONLY on a weekly basis, to avoid excessive contamination buildup. 

  • Use a quality car soap. We recommend a ph balanced car soap such as xpel's  rinse free car soap or Foam Blizzard by Gliptone. 

  • Avoid washing in direct sunlight to minimize streaking and water spotting. 

  • Wash from the roof downwards, leaving the dirtiest sections last, avoiding possible cross-contamination. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND you follow up with XPEL Detail Spray and XPEL Ceramic Boost for added gloss.

  • For interior cleaning, we recommend using XPEL Interior Cleaner (as needed) on your leather, plastics, and non-fabric surfaces. For fabric areas, we recommend vacuuming and using a clean, dry microfiber.

  •  We recommend testing in an inconspicuous area before applying XPEL Interior Cleaner – please read directions before applying.

drying

  • Always dry the exterior surfaces completely using a clean, soft, lint free microfiber towel or air blower. Never allow water to evaporate on its own. Tap water can contain minerals which leave deposits on your coating, creating unwanted water spots. 

  • Always avoid aggressive wiping.

HOW TO CARE FOR PAINT PROTECTION FILM

  • Wait 48 hours after installation to wash your car.

  • Remove insect or other stains as soon as possible with XPEL Film Cleaner.

  • Stubborn stains can be removed with 99% isopropyl alcohol. Take care to keep these chemicals off the vehicle’s paint.

  • Seal with XPEL Ceramic Boost at least once every 6 months to preserve high gloss.

  • Light scratches in the film will self-heal in 20-30 minutes at room temperature. In colder conditions, or to accelerate the process, pour warm water (120°F) over the affected area.

  • Avoid using a pressure washer or high-pressure water source near the edges of the film, it can cause the film to lift and/or become damaged.

  • Detailing Clay can be used to remove contaminants that are on the film.
