If any lifting does occur, push the affected area down and contact your Schneider Graphics representative as soon as possible.

CARE

POWER WASHING
Power washing or pressure washing, may be used. However, aggressive washing can damage the graphic.

To avoid edge lifting or other damage to the graphics, follow these important steps:
  • Use a spray nozzle with a 40-degree wide spray pattern.
  • If the system is heated, limit the water temperature to 180 degrees F or less.
  • Hold the nozzle at least 12 inches (300mm) away from and perpendicular to the graphic.
  • DO NOT DIRECT THE WATER STREAM AT A SHARP ANGLE TO THE EDGE OF GRAPHIC
AUTOMATIC BRUSH/TOUCHLESS WASHING
Automatic brush washing may be used, but keep these points in mind:
  • Some high-pressure touchless car washes spray at undesired angles causing graphics and window film to release.
  • Brushes can catch an edge of the graphic and cause damage.
  • Brushes can dull the finish of the graphic.
  • Always exercise caution when using any type of automatic car wash.
HAND WASHING
  • Flush the graphic with clean water to remove loose dirt particles. A trigger type hose nozzle is convenient for this purpose.
  • Use a mild liquid detergent and water solution and wash the graphic with a soft brush, rag or sponge.
  • Wash thoroughly from the top down.
  • Avoid abrading the graphic by unnecessary scrubbing.
  • After applying the cleaning solution, keep a steady stream of water flowing on the graphic to wash away dirt particles.  
  • Rinse the entire graphic thoroughly with clean water. 
  • Allow to dry naturally.
PERFORATED WINDOW FILM
Windows with perforated vinyl will have reduced durability if they are rolled up and down. The abrasion from rubber seals may cause edges to lift or laminate to deteriorate. The use of a rear wiper may cause the same problems and should be avoided. Minimal or no use of in-glass defrosters is advised.
