Yes, for exterior maintenance, we recommend using Xpel Rinse Free Car Wash on a weekly basis, to avoid excessive contamination buildup. Avoid washing in direct sunlight to minimize streaking and water spotting. Wash from the roof downwards, leaving the dirtiest sections last, avoiding possible cross-contamination. You can follow up with Xpel Detail Spray and Xpel Ceramic Boost for added gloss.


Always dry the exterior surfaces completely using a clean, soft, lint free microfiber towel or air blower. Never allow water to evaporate on its own. Tap water can contain minerals which leave deposits on your coating, creating unwanted water spots. For best results use Xpel Microfiber Towels, which have been designed to absorb water. Always avoid aggressive wiping.

We recommend that you wait at least 48 hours after the ceramic coating has cured before washing.

We do not recommend applying traditional waxes to a ceramic coated vehicle. Adding a layer of wax on top of the ceramic coating may mask all the benefits of the coating. We recommend the use of Fusion Plus Ceramic Boost instead for the best results.
