This Door Edge Protection Film is a very durable, self-healing, 8 mil thick clear coated urethane film that helps preserve your vehicle’s finish. It helps protect against chips, abrasion and weathering–including stone chipping, door dings, and most types of environmental damage. It is virtually invisible and clear-coated to help make it resistant to yellowing and staining. Once applied, no special care is required. The application is permanent. After installation, wait 24 hours before taking your vehicle through a car wash. To help insure a successful install, we provide detailed installation videos for either a dry or wet installation. Frequently Asked Questions Can I use wax over Door Edge Protection Film? Yes. When waxing the vehicle, some wax may build up along the film edges. This can easily be removed when dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any waxes containing dyes or waxes that are not recommended for urethanes. Abrasive polishes and/or rubbing compounds are not to be used. How is Door Edge Protection Film removed? If desired, film can be removed at any time by picking up a corner of the film and pulling the film off the vehicle surface at a 90-degree angle. If the film has been present a long time, or if the film and vehicle are cold, a heat gun or hair dryer may be used to soften the adhesive and making it easier to remove the film. If any adhesive remains on the vehicle after removal of the film, it can be removed by using an auto body adhesive remover. If Door Edge Protection Film is removed from the vehicle, can it be re-used? No. Once the film has been applied and set, the adhesive will not stick a second time.
