Windshield Defense™ Maintenance Procedure
To maximize the life of the Racing Optics film, please follow these instructions for proper care and maintenance.
Always use clean, soft cloth to wash and dry your Racing Optics film surfaces.
Most glass cleaners (like Windex spray, clear glass foam cleaner) will work well, although a good cleaning solution for Racing Optics film is 1/2 ounce of liquid dish soap added to 1 quart of fresh water. Use water at room temperature (65°F to 77°F – 18°C to 25°C).
A soft cloth or a clean synthetic sponge is recommended for washing the Racing Optics film, followed by another clean soft cloth or soft rubber squeegee for drying.
To avoid scratching the film, do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges, or any cleaning materials that may have been contaminated with dirt particles. Avoid washing interior and exterior windows with the same cleaning materials.
Some brands of paper towels are coarse enough to put fine scratches in the film, even films with scratch resistant, protective hard-coat finish. While these scratches may be too fine to be seen at first, they can cause damage and reduce the polished look of the film over time.
Always consider the application of CarbonOne™ , the world’s finest protective coating to maintain all car parts in pristine condition. It keeps bugs from sticking to your windshield Defense™ and car. Sticky tree sap is easily removed. CarbonOne™ is a long-lasting coating specially formulated for Racing optics providing extra strength and durability to your Windshield Defense™, vehicle‘s body paint, lights, bumpers, and all windows.
