After spending time and money carefully applying lettering and graphics to a boat, the last thing an owner wants to do is ruin them by not giving them the proper care. In Shurhold’s Clean ‘n’ Simple video at http://shurhold.com/article/clean-n-simple/how-to-care-for-graphic/, the company shows how to keep these graphics in top shape.
First, using polishers on graphics and wraps should be avoided. These harsh machines will degrade images and decreases their lifespan. When using a polisher to wax and clean the rest of a boat, these graphics should be covered with blue painter’s tape. Owners should make sure the surrounding area is also covered, so the polisher doesn’t nab the corners or edges of the wrap.
To protect the graphics and wrap from fading due to harsh UV rays, owners can safely use Shurhold’s Serious Shine. It will not damage the wrap. Owners simply spray the lettering and graphics and wipe it on and off with a clean microfiber towel. The more Serious Shine is used, the better the graphic is protected and the longer it lasts.
Shurhold’s Serious Shine is the perfect one-step detailer. It cleans, polishes, and protects virtually any solid surface in one easy step, leaving no greasy, artificial residue. This unique formula provides high gloss and a UV protective coating that also repels water. A 14 oz. aerosol can retails for $17.98.
