Airborne metal fallout can sometimes be hot, angle grinding spark/dust for example. This can penetrate the PPF or vinyl wrap while it is still hot and create a 'crater' or hole.

Applying any fallout remover/magma could compromise the foil/vinyl in the crater reducing the PPF/vinyl bond or possibly leaching into the foil/vinyl.

This is a case of us being safe rather than sorry. In many cases it may be perfectly fine, but as it isn't in all cases, we do not advise it.
