Complete Windshield Maintenance Guide: For the First 48 Hours After Installation

Don't Soak It

Try to avoid car washes, driving in rain, or using wipers for the first couple days.

Let It Dry

Expose ExoShield to the sun for the first few days to speed up curing.

Give It Time

You may see some distortion initially. This will disappear once ExoShield is fully cured.

Keep ExoShield clean.

Keeping your windshield clean of dirt, bird droppings, sap, or other chemicals can help maximize the life of your ExoShield.

Do not pressure wash your windshield.
We recommend manually washing your windshield with soap and water, or going through a touchless car wash.

Ensure proper wiper care.

While ExoShield is formulated to include our state-of-the-art scratch resistant hardcoat, dirty wiper blades may accelerate the wear of the film over time.

Make sure to regularly clean wipers with a damp cloth to remove dirt or debris from the wipers.

Avoid using harsh chemicals.

Some cleaning products, coatings, or surface treatments may not be compatible with ExoShield. Stick to an ammonia-free glass cleaner and ExoShield-approved coatings. In some cases, ExoShield-approved coatings can even help extend the life of your windshield protection film.

Maintainance in winter.

In winter, avoid using a metal or rough plastic ice scraper as this may cause unwanted scratching. If you notice your scraper has worn out, you can buff the edge with sandpaper to ensure it will not damage your ExoShield.
