High Gloss Carbon Fiber Care 101: Quick Tips

Carbon fiber's reputation for strength and durability often leads to the assumption that it requires minimal maintenance. However, even high gloss carbon fiber demands care to maintain its pristine appearance and performance. Here are essential tips for proper upkeep:

 1. Guard Against Scratches and Swirl Marks
Keep carbon fiber surfaces clear of dust and pollen to prevent scratches and swirls. Cleaning with gentle soap and warm water is sufficient for most surfaces, ensuring the clear coat and fibers remain protected.

2. Clean with Care
Use a mild cleanser or soap solution to remove surface residue. Avoid allowing water to dry on the surface, as it can lead to spotting or staining. Always dry thoroughly with a soft microfiber towel to prevent damage, especially under direct sunlight.

 3. Choose Cleaning Agents Wisely
Avoid harsh acids and solvents that can damage the clear coat. Stubborn marks can be removed with acetone and a soft cloth, but never resort to abrasive polishes or wax.

 4. Protect with Wax
Opt for carbon-fiber appropriate wax to preserve the clear coating and shield against UV degradation. Spray-on wax or non-abrasive formulas are ideal for maintaining gloss and durability.

 5. Store Away from Sunlight
While carbon fiber is UV resistant, storing products out of direct sunlight prolongs their lifespan. Shielding from the sun preserves the integrity of the epoxy resin finish.

 6. Restore and Revitalize
For faded or yellowed surfaces, polish the clear coat with a carbon fiber-specific glaze or polishing compound. Finish with carnauba wax to enhance shine and provide added protection.
