How To Look After Your Boat Wrap

You’ve invested in your boat wrap, so now you want to keep it looking like new. At Form A Sign, we are competition fisherman with wraps on all of our boats. After a day fishing we do an initial clean with CT18. We use a ratio of CT18 to water of 50:1 for normal stains and 25:1 for deep stubborn fishing stains. We brush the cT18 all over the boat with a soft broom or sponge. We let it sit for 10 minutes so the CT18 can get to work. We then use a pressure cleaner at a distance of 40cm to hose off the boat and boat wrap. Any closer may damage the wrap.

Once a year we need to re-hydrate the wrap with VuPlex or Plexus. We like VuPlex because by applying a micro-thin layer of protectant, it seals the porous surface. The polish finish makes the boat wrap resistant to debris, oil, scratches and yellowing. It also makes fine scratches less visible. Water and other contaminants are repelled from the surface, giving added protection. The anti-static properties help to repel dust and abrasive materials.

We’ve had our boat wrap on for over 7 years, and following this cleaning method. The wrap looks as good as new. VuPlex can be purchased in our online shop.
