answerHand washing with soap and water is recommended. We do not recommend using any harsh chemicals to remove any bird dropping residue. Do not use a pressure washer on the film. It can damage or lift the film off the painted surface.


questionCan I use wax over 3M VentureShield™ Paint Protection Film?

answerYes. Every time you wax your paint, wax your film. When waxing the vehicle, use spray wax on the paint protection film instead of liquid wax to prevent wax build up along the films edge. This can easily be removed with a dry soft cloth. Do not use pigmented or abrasive cleaners, waxes, polishes or rubbing compounds on the film.

answerThe film has a 5 year warranty against bubbling and cracking and a 2 year warranty on labor.


questionCan 3MVentureShield™ Paint Protection Film be applied over a vehicle that has been repainted or touched up?

answer3M recommends that any repainted surfaces on your vehicle be professionally painted and fully cured before applying paint protection film. If you have touched up scratches or chips with a tube of "touch-up" paint and then apply paint protection film over it, the film will protect that area until it is removed. If the car was properly prepped and painted, you should have no problem. In some cases if the vehicle was not properly painted, the clear bra may pull the paint off during the installation process in which case, we are not responsible.
