Wipers on Car Decals, Stickers for Boats, & Washing Autos After Decal Installation

LAST UPDATED ON:

Can Windshield Wipers Damage the Car Window Decals

It isn't probably going to do much good for it, but it depends on how much road grime and dirt is under your wipers. Over time, the wipers act like sandpaper in pushing grit over the decal repeatedly.

If your area gets a lot of rain, say an area like Seattle, Washington, it is likely that the water and spray off the road is relatively clean, so it's not likely that, other than the very light abrasiveness of your windshield wiper, that the decal will be damaged too much in the short- term.

Long term may be a different story, of course. But then you may have a hard time deciding whether the sun or the wipers did the actual damage.

Generally, though, you can put your car decals on the lower left or right of the rear window, so it won't really be contacted by your windshield wiper, or you can even put in on the inside of the glass if your windows aren't too darkly tinted.

Designing Vinyl Stickers on Boats

Absolutely. We've covered entire race boats with some very cool graphics, and even at high speeds, the vinyl boat graphics stay on without any trouble.

If your boat will be in salt water, you will want to make sure that whomever you contract to put vinyl decals or graphics on your boat knows that you'll be boating on salt water, and uses the appropriate materials for that application.

By their nature, vinyl graphic stickers that you put on your boat are waterproof. Vinyl is actually short for polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, and is a plastic that is also used to make water pipe, so contact with water is no problem for vinyl stickers and decals in the long haul. This samples the graphic you can apply to any sort of boat you may have.

Is it okay to wash the Car after Installing Graphic Decals?

That is a good question and the answer is yes, but with a caveat.

Most vinyl decals have an acrylic adhesive glue that reaches 95% of maximum strength within about 72 hours. So, when I say that yes, you can wash your car after installing decals, I also am strongly suggesting that you wait 3 days, or 2 if you're as impatient as I am.

One thing to note about acrylic adhesives is that they do continue to harden over time, and if you have an auto decal you've applied to your vehicle, particularly if you put it on a painted area of your car, it will be easier to remove using a heat gun when you do decide to remove it.

As to waxing your car and your vehicle's stickers or decals, that should really be no problem at all, at least after the initial 72 hours. In fact, it is probably more likely that your decals will be protected by the wax, just as your car's paint job is also protected by waxing it.
