Material Handling & Storage

The following list is a summary of best practices for working with any top-coated thermal polyurethane (TPU) paint protection film. These are included for your review.

SolarShield® strongly recommends that you follow these guidelines to ensure product quality upon delivery and handling, and to reduce wasted time and material.

  1. Do not put undue pressure on the surface of the film while it is still on the roll, as pressure marks may form.
  2. Handle the carton with care to avoid pressure marks from careless handling.
  3. Gloss may fade due to pressure, long-term storage, and high temperatures, which is typical of TPU film. The gloss may be recovered by using a heat gun on the affected area. To protect gloss prior to installation, SolarShield® uses a protective gloss enhancing, protective sheet on the surface of the top coat.
  4. The product should be stored in an environment with temperatures below 90°F and a relative humidity between 40% and 60%.
  5. SolarShield® paint protection film should be used within one year from the date of purchase.
  6. Repackaging a roll of film into a box bigger or smaller than the size of the roll can damage the film. Doing so may result in pressure marks, faded gloss, embossing marks, etc.
  7. When rewinding or cutting in order to repackage the film, note that surface marks (e.g., small dots, twists, etc.) may appear on the surface due to dirt or dust contamination. If repackaging, ensure that your workspace is clean.
  8. After using part of a roll of film, do not repack it loosely. Keep the film as it was originally packaged—rolled tight and held in place by taping. As SolarShield® Paint Protection films have surface protection sheets, note that tunnelling may occur if the roll is not rewound tightly or rewound in the reverse direction.
  9. Adhesive characteristics may change between seasons if the application environment is not climate-controlled. This is typical of the material. Particularly in cold weather, apply the film only in environments with temperatures higher than 50° F.
  10. Generally, water mixed with a neutral detergent or IPA (isopropyl alcohol) may be used as a pre-handling liquid before applying the film. Initial adhesive tack may vary depending on the ratio of IPA to water.
  11. Contact the manufacturer if using PPF for non-automotive purposes.
  12. Note: SolarShield® is not responsible for damage caused by mishandling, improper storage, re-cutting, re-packing, not using a sponge core, or storage for more than one year.

Installation & Care

The following list is a summary of best practices for installing and caring for SolarShield® top-coated thermal polyurethane (TPU) paint protection films. They are included for your own review and for review with your customers. SolarShield® strongly recommends that you follow these guidelines to ensure quality installation.

  1. Due to its self-healing abilities, light scratches on paint protection films (PPFs) may be removed by applying hot water or a heat gun over the affected area(s). Note that if a scratch has penetrated the top coat, it will not self-heal. This is typical of any top-coated PPF.
  2. During installation, take care to avoid scratching from installation tools. We recommend using a rubber squeegee for installation (e.g., a yellow or green Turbo squeegee). Even with the use of a rubber squeegee, scratches may occur. Test your tools before installation to determine whether they are safe for use.
  3. Installation should take place in a clean area free of airborne dust and other particulates, which could result in surface scratches.
  4. Test all waxes or after-market sealants before application to PPFs. Not all products are compatible with PPF top coats. Extremely hydrophobic PPF top coats may interfere with the application of waxes or other coatings.
  5. SolarShield® recommends hand-washing cars protected with PPF. While the top coat may have self-healing abilities, using automatic car washes increases the likelihood of surface scratching. Though minor scratches may self-heal, deeper scratches may remain if they have penetrated the top coat.
  6. Although SolarShield® Paint Protection Film is highly resistant to cracking, lift lines, and “chicken-skinning,” applying too much force/stretching may damage the film. While it offers sufficient flexibility for installation in tight corners, depressions, and other complex areas, the material does have its limits. In order to determine such limits, which may vary based on individual application methods, we recommend testing the stretchability of the PPF prior to your first installation. Note that a heat gun may be used during stretching to increase flexibility.
  7. Maintenance & Care Instructions (PPF & top-coated PPF)

a. To extend the life and appearance of your SolarShield® product and to preserve your warranty coverage, do not wash the vehicle for 48 hours following installation.

b. Avoid directly spraying the edges of the PPF with a pressure washer or nozzle. Doing so may lift the edge of the film. If using a high-pressure washer, keep the nozzle at least 36 inches above the film’s surface.

c. Do not use pigmented waxes, abrasive waxes, or waxes containing naphtha or kerosene.

d. Do not use abrasive pads or harsh chemicals on the film.

e. If desired, wax the car and film at least once every 6 months after testing for compatibility.

f. Remove stains as soon as possible. Use isopropyl alcohol to remove stubborn stains. Avoid cleaning the film in direct sunlight or in high temperatures.

8. The intensity of ultraviolet radiation in the summer sun is very strong. Do not park your car outside for a long time and expose it to the sun.

9. Do not park your car under a tree, otherwise there will be a lot of resin sticking to the membrane surface, which is highly corrosive and easy to damage the membrane surface coating.

10. Do not park your car under the exhaust fan for a long time, otherwise there will be a lot of oil stains on the membrane surface, which is not easy to clean.

11. Do not park your car for a long time at the dripping point of the air-conditioning outlet. The corrosive air-conditioning water will damage the structure of the film surface coating.

12. Do not park the car in the rain for a long time, the acid in the rain will erode the membrane surface.

Caution: Dirt, debris, and stains left on the film may discolor the film if not removed immediately. Take care to prevent discoloration, which may be more noticeable on lighter-colored cars. Advise vehicle owners of proper maintenance procedures.

13. To remove the film, pull the film from a corner at an angle less than 90° from the surface of the car. If the film has been installed for a number of years, it may be more difficult to remove. In that case, a steamer, heat gun, or hair dryer may be used to soften the adhesive. After removing the film, adhesive residue may remain on the vehicle body. This is caused by the structure of the product. This residue may be easily removed using the adhesive remover.
