Do Your Customers Know How to Maintain Their Vehicle Wrap?

Molly Waters explains the ins and outs of cleaning vehicle wraps and graphics over on our blog, Yes, you can wash a vehicle wrap and even wax it, but not matte wraps. Get all the details in the article.


I recently wrote an article for about how to care for and maintain various types of wraps – whether digital or matte paint replacement. It’s important and beneficial to regularly clean vehicle wraps and graphics.

Here are a few highlights from the article.


Why cleaning is important:

  • Cleaning a wrap can help prolong the life of the graphics by protecting it from UV damage and environmental pollutants.
  • Using an approved wax can provide added UV protection, especially for horizontal areas.


Cleaning methods:

  • Washing by hand is one of the best ways to clean a wrap.
  • If using a pressure washer, follow Avery Dennison guidelines. (detailed in the article).
  • Waterless washes work well unless the vehicle is very dirty, then hand wash beforehand.
  • Wax can be used as long as it doesn’t contain petroleum distillates.


For matte wraps, don’t use waterless washes that contain wax. You will get glossy spots.
