This product is made from synthetic paper, Teslin, which won't shred
or tear at the edges. It is laminated with vinyl approved for outdoor
use and is approx. 6 mm thick as finished product. Outdoor use is good
for 4 to 6 months minimum depending on the area you live in and the care
you take with it.
For Outdoor usage, we recommend removing the magnet once a week and thoroughly
clean behind it & the back side of the magnet. A little wax in the
area where you want the magnet to stick will avoid a paint problem, but
may lesson the ability of the magnet to stick firm to the surface. Winter
can be harsh as a combination of moisture, road tar, sand & salt,
which can damage paint on it's own, as they get caught behind the magnet.
If you live in a desert area where everything gets baked on, definitely
remove and replace once in a while. Also, remember that direct sun will
eventually cause color fading on your magnet if your car stays outdoors
all day long.
Car wash high pressure sprayers and brushes are known to occasionally
keep car magnets as souvenirs!! It's best to remove before sending your
car to the shower or, just be sure to check your vehicle before you leave
the car wash.
