  • Can I Install VERTEK Weather Armor Paint Protection Film Myself?
    Other than the simplest body panels, application of paint protection film is a process which requires a good deal of experience and training to obtain satisfactory results. The compound curves present on most surfaces require the film to be stretched and compressed in a very controlled way to ensure proper adhesion without distorting the adhesive. As such, it is highly recommended that the film is professionally installed.
  • Can VERTEK Weather Armor Be Installed On Your Windshield?
    No. Because of the impact absorbency of paint protection film, the refractive index of the film is too different from that of the windshield. Because of this difference, putting the two together causes a distortion when looking through the glass that would be unacceptable to the vehicle’s occupants.
  • What Should I Do If I'm Not Satisfied With The Installations?
    It is always best to contact your VERTEK installer first and explain your concerns. We do our best to maintain a network of installers that stand behind their work. If after doing so, your installer cannot or will not address your concerns to your satisfaction, please contact our customer service team for assistance. They will get you in touch with the VERTEK Representative for your area who will work to find a solution to the issue.
  • Can VERTEK Weather Armor Be Installed On My Airplane Or Aircraft?
    Due to the tight tolerances on weight, balance on some aircraft and other factors like air safety regulations, we do not recommend.
  • Can VERTEK Weather Armor Be Installed On Boats And Other Watercraft?
    Yes. VERTEK Weather Armor can be installed on marine boats and water craft
  • Can I Wash My Car Through An Automatic Car Wash?
    Yes. But wait 7 days after installation to allow the film to dry completely.
  • Can I Use A Pressure Washer, And How Soon After Install?"
    Yes, pressure washers can be used on VERTEK Weather Armor paint protection films, provided the film has completely dried after installation (typically 7 days) and provided the high-pressure water is not pointed directly at the edges of the film.
  • Will Removing The Film Harm The Vehicles Paint, Once Removed?"
    It is highly unlikely for paint protection film to harm OEM paint. Paint systems used on modern assembly lines today produce a minimum bond strength of 16 MPa and maximum of 25 MPa between the panel and the paint depending on color, iridescence and the system used. Our film’s bond to the painted surface at normal state (immediately following installation) is .0753 MPa. Even after years of heat and sun, the bond between the film and the paint increases to only 0.17 MPa. What that means is in the absolute worst case scenario, the bond of factory paint to the panel is over 94 times stronger than the bond of our film to the paint. In the best case, the paint is 332 times stronger. That being said, it is still recommended to have a professional remove the film in accordance with our published guidelines.
  • Can I Have VERTEK Weather Armor Installed Over My Vinyl Wrap Or Racing Stripes?
    Yes. VERTEK Weather Armor paint protection film can be applied over a vinyl wrap or graphics.
  • Can VERTEK Weather Armor Be Installed On Your Vehicles Headlights And Fog Lights?
    Yes. VERTEK Weather Armor paint protection film can be installed on your cars headlamps and fog lamps to prevents against rock chipping.
  • Can I Use A Quick Detailer Or Detail Spray?
    You may use any standard car wash soap, rinse free car wash, or detail spray to clean the film, provided that the product does not contain more than 5% naphtha or kerosene.
  • Can VERTEK Be Applied Over A Vehicle That Has Had Paint Touch Ups?
    Yes. Though you can install the film over any quality of touch-up, the best possible appearance will be obtained if the touched up area has been color-sanded smooth and buffed after the application of the paint.
  • Can VERTEK Weather Armor Be Installed On The Interior Panels Of My Car?
    Yes. VERTEL Weather Armor paint protection film can be applied to any smooth surface, though care should be taken around any electronics and/or switches so that installation fluids aren’t allowed to get into sensitive areas.
  • Can VERTEK Weather Armor Paint Protection Film Be Installed On A Brand New Vehicle?
    Yes. Factory paint is fully cured before the car ever leaves the assembly line.
  • Can VERTEK Weather Armor Paint Protection Film Be Installed On A Fresh Painted Vehicle?
    Yes. We recommend to install after full curing of paint after 2 months of re-painting.
  • What Can I Use To Clean The Film With If The Film Cleaner Is Stained?
    VERTEK is generally designed to resist against dirt, grime and oils that lead to yellowing over time. To remove stubborn stains from other substances such as insects, bird droppings or other compounds, use lacquer thinner or AUTOTRIZ Prep Solvent with a soft microfiber cloth, wash it with shampoo and rinse with water.
  • If I Get A Partial Front Protection Option, Will The Edge Of The Film Be Noticeable?"
    While the edge of the film can be seen from certain angles, people generally do not notice it unless they are looking for it. However, if the car is dirty and dust and dirt is allowed to collect along the edge of the film, it will be more noticeable. Once the car is cleaned, it will be once again difficult to detect unless looking for it.
  • A Piece Of Road Debris Scratched The Film On My Car. Will This Self-Heal?
    The self-healing clear coat of our VERTEK Weather Armor paint protection films is designed to repair itself from swirl marks and light scratches from car washes, etc. If a piece of debris has penetrated all the way through the clear coat on the film, it will not self-heal. The only way to fix this would be to have the piece of film replaced.
  • How Can I Remove The Excess Adhesive After I Removed The Film Myself?
    If there is left over adhesive upon removal, you can use a general purpose adhesive remover, often found at your local auto parts or home improvement store.
  • Does The Warranty Transfer To Another Owner If Car Is Sold?
    Yes. Warranty is transferable to another owner with proof of purchase and terms and conditions.
  • Once The Film Has Been Removed From My Vehicle, Can I Re-Use It On Another Vehicle?"
    No, the film once applied and removed cannot be reused.
  • Can I Install VERTEK Paint Protection Film On Aluminum Or Brushed Metal Accents On The Car?
    Any of our paint protection films can be installed on aluminum or brushed metal, though they may change the appearance to some degree depending on the film you choose. We recommend having your installer apply a small swatch of the film to the surface in question to determine the appearance prior to full installation.
  • My Car Dealer Applied A Paint Sealant/ Nano Ceramic Coating To My Vehicle, Can I Have VERTEK Installed Over This Protectant?"
    Waxes, sealants and protectants are typically designed to reduce the surface energy of the paint, making them easier to clean etc. A reduction in surface energy will reduce the film’s ability to adhere to the paint and could cause long term adhesion issues. Because of this, we generally recommend removing these types of products before installation. If these types of coatings are to be used, we recommend applying them AFTER installation of our paint protection film.
  • Can I Apply A Ceramic Coating On Top Of The Film And How Does It Affect The Self-Healing Feature Of VERTEK?
    We recommend to apply ceramic coatings to the films. But most nano ceramic coatings are Silicone base which will not bond strongly with the film. We recommend to use AUTOTRIZ PPF & Vinyl Wrap Coating ONLY.
  • When I Wear Polarized Sunglasses, My Paint Protection Film Appears To Have Blemishes And Distortions, Why Is That?"
    This is a very common occurrence with Paint Protection Film of all brands. It has to do with the difference in refractive index between the layer of film and the paint on the car. It is most noticeable on compound-curved surfaces because the film must be stretched over these areas to allow it to be installed without wrinkles. When the film is stretched, it becomes slightly thinner in those areas which causes the phenomenon seen through polarized glasses. It can also occur on flat surfaces when the installer needs to use a drying solution (as opposed to a slip solution) such as alcohol and water to get the needed bond to the paint. This is due to the difference in viscosity of the fluids and their effect on the adhesive’s properties. Polarized glasses have this effect on a number of different multi-layer surfaces (not just paint protection film) made of glass or plastic.
