Taking Care of Your Lavra Paint Protection Film (PPF)
Proper care and maintenance of your Lavra Paint Protection Film (PPF) are critical in preserving its protective properties and maintaining the aesthetics of your vehicle. Follow these steps to extend the lifespan and maintain the high-quality appearance of your PPF:
Cleaning: Regular cleaning is paramount. Use a soft cloth or sponge and a gentle, non-abrasive detergent to clean the film. Always rinse your vehicle with water before wiping it down to remove dust and dirt that can scratch the film surface.
Pressure Washing: Avoid direct high-pressure water that might lift the film's edges. If a pressure washer is used, maintain a safe distance and never aim it directly at the film's edges.
Gentle Treatment: Be particularly careful around the edges of the film where lifting may occur. During cleaning, avoid applying excessive force or pulling at the edges.
Sun and Heat Exposure: Although Lavra PPF can withstand sun exposure, if you reside in an area of extreme heat, parking your vehicle in shaded areas when possible can preserve the film's longevity.
Waxing: You can wax the film just as you would with car paint to maintain its shine. Ensure the wax is non-abrasive and doesn't contain Naphtha or Kerosene in concentrations over 5%, which could discolor the film.
Ceramic Coating: Applying a ceramic coating over the Lavra PPF is an excellent way to enhance its longevity. The ceramic coating adds an additional layer of protection against chemical stains and UV damage while improving the gloss and ease of cleaning.
Utilizing Self-Healing Properties: Lavra PPF possesses self-healing properties. Minor scratches or scuffs disappear over time with heat exposure. You can hasten the healing process by pouring warm water over the area.
Regular Checks: It's advisable to have your PPF professionally inspected annually to ensure optimal performance and early detection of potential issues.
By following these steps, you'll maximize the life of your Lavra PPF, keeping your vehicle in its best possible condition. With this care regimen, your Lavra PPF will offer superior protection and aesthetic enhancement for many years.
