CyberWraps Cleaning & Maintenance

Washing 

Waterless Wash / Spray Wax

  • A waterless wash or spray wax can also be used as long as the vehicle isn’t too dirty. These products can help maintain the gloss level and performance of the film. If the vehicle is not overly dirty, this is the preferred method. 
  • Using a spray wax to care for the wrap film is great for protecting the vinyl wrap from being damaged by environmental pollutants or seasonal airborne pollutants.
  • NOTE: Make sure the wax used does not contain petroleum distillates or abrasive components. Always test the wax in an inconspicuous area prior to waxing the whole wrap. Any wax residue can be removed with all-purpose cleaner.

Hand Wash

  • When hand washing, the first step is to pre-rinse the vehicle with clean water, thus avoiding scratching the surface.
  • Gently wash with a mild soapy water solution and a sponge, start at the top of the vehicle and work down. Avoid abrading the film surface with unnecessary scrubbing.
  • Rinse your CyberWrap thoroughly with clean water when finished.
  • Allow the wrap to dry naturally or to avoid water spotting immediately use a silicone squeegee to remove water and then finish drying with a Chamois, microfiber towel or soft non-abrasive towel.
  • NOTE:
    • Be careful to not lift the film edges.
    • Detergent should be free from abrasive components, strong solvents and alcohols.
    • Detergents should have a pH balance between 5 and 9. 

Automatic Car Wash

  • A brushless automatic car wash with just spray is acceptable.
  • The automated brush wash is not recommended as the brushes may scratch the CyberWrap surface, catch and lift the edges of the wrap, reduce the gloss finish and/or create a failure point.
  • Skip the wax options at the car wash to avoid wax that contains petroleum distillates which can damage the CyberWrap.
  • Let your CyberWrap dry naturally or dab dry with a microfiber towel. 

Power Washer

  • The use of a pressure or power washer should only be used when all other cleaning methods have been used or tested and did not properly work. NOTE: Pressure washing could have negative effects on your CyberWrap including but not limited to edge-lifting and face degradation.
  • Keep water pressure below 1200 psi (8- bars or 84 kg/cm2)
  • Keep water temperature below 180˚F (80˚C)
  • Keep the nozzle at least 12 inches away from the edges
  • Keep the nozzle perpendicular to the graphic. This will avoid lifting edges of the wrap.
  • Use a nozzle with a 40˚ angle wide spray pattern 

Stains and Spills

  • Never use solvents, chemicals, or oil-based cleaning products including kitchen/bathroom cleaners, orange oil, oven cleaner, and engine degreaser. Treat bird droppings, spills or stains by soaking the area in warm, soapy water to loosen contaminants then rinse and dry with a microfiber cloth. For stubborn stains, combine two parts isopropyl alcohol to one part water. Test on a very small less-noticed area to ensure that the cleaner will not harm the wrap.

Chrome

  • Chrome CyberWraps require extra care. When cleaning these films be careful not to scrub as this may leave scratch marks. Wipe the chrome film clean with a soft chamois or microfiber cloth to avoid scratches. Do not use brushes. Try to wipe in one direction since swirling motions may leave marks on the surface. Cleaning products must be grit free to avoid scratching. Use of the cleaning products listed below will assist in cleaning and providing a protective finish to the chrome film.
