How should I prepare PPF for EXOv3?

A lot of my car has PPF on it (Expel ultimate). How would I go about preparing it for EXO? I understand that Panel Wipe is not recommended. Have people done this, and what is the longevity like compared to application on paint?

Thanks all.

I used Gyeon Prep to prepare my Xpel Ultimate for Kamikaze Collection Film Coat, I had no issues with the Prep on the PPF and I’ve been very impressed with the Film Coat.

Surely if you put EXO over a self healing film, you'll lose the self healing properties?

all of our coatings do not interfere with the self healing properties of PPF

You can spray that stuff on just about anything in your household that is plastic and it will protect it. Bit expensive, what is that ain't good?

On the PPF, you can do s lot more than many think. Quite a few installers have pushed the boundaries.
Machine polish, CC, wax etc.
Personal preference is light polish and wax. You can then do it regular as I also prefer.
Need to take care with the APC and make it around 20%, just another preference as it works.
The manufactures will not sanction it. Or wouldn't before anyway.
