Surface Protection Film

Premium Shield is warranted against crazing, bubbling, or yellowing from UV exposure for as long as the original purchaser owns and operates the automobile on which the Premium Shield Elite is installed; or for (5) years on Premium Shield film installations.

For your product to remain in excellent condition year after year, and to maintain the conditions required to activate this warranty, please follow the care instructions below.


Care Instructions: NOTE: The installed film must be left to cure for a period no less than 24 hours

prior to being subjected to washing or other similar treatment.  This will allow the pressure-sensitive adhesive to cure completely and for any application moisture to evaporate completely.

After the 24-hour period has elapsed, simply follow the care instructions below:

  • Using a clean microfiber towel or chamois; we recommend that ONLY synthetic waxes be used to clean your Premium Shield film. Naturally occurring waxes (i.e. Carnauba) are not recommended.  DO not use any colored wax resins (white or clear only).
  • Immediately wash away any foreign material (i.e. bug splatter, bird poop, etc.) If left on the film for an extended period, staining may occur.
  • Wash car as per normal. If using a high-pressure washer, the nozzle must be at least 36” away from the edges of the film to avoid peeling.
  • Wax and dust can build around the edges of the film. To remove, simply use a cotton swab dipped in 70% isopropyl (rubbing alcohol and wipe AWAY from the edge NOT into it.

DO NOT USE: Solvent-based cleaners; Bug removers or de-greasers; Rubbing compound or any abrasive materials; High-speed buffing or polishing equipment can be used, but on slow speed and with minimal force.  We recommend testing on a small bumper section prior to using on hood or fenders.
