Can Paint Protection Film be used with a Ceramic Coating?

Learn more about using Paint Protection Films and Ceramic Coatings together.

What do I need to do after application?

After application you should wait at least 7 days before washing the vehicle. After that, you can wash your vehicle as you normally would. If you are using a pressure washer, be sure to stay 8–12 inches from the edge of the film in order to prevent peeling. If using compressed air, keep the nozzle one foot away from exposed edges. Avoid wiping or cleaning the film in direct sunlight. If the film is not covered with a Ceramic Coating, you should apply a high-quality wax or sealant regularly. Finally, do not use a powered buffer on the film.
