I see on the AutoGlym website on the FAQ's that "We would not recommend that Magma is used on wrapped vehicles." I have one car that has PPF applied to the front, and one car that has decals on it. Should I stay clear of this product or just be careful where I apply it ?

I'm interested in this too as I have PPF type protection on my headlamps.

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.

I did return to my car once in a secluded carpark in the country to find a young "lady" grinding next to my car, she was quite hot and sparks were certainly flying between her and the ne'er-do-well she was with so I will just have to be careful when using Magma on my car and avoid that bonnet area from now on.

Thank you for the reply, it is a pity this warning is not actually placed on the product itself though, if you do not advise it. I would have thought twice before I purchased it as I had looked on the back for any application warnings.

In all seriousness your answer was helpful and I thank you for the quick reply and explanation.

Although I don't think my PPF has been compromised obviously the fact it is on the front of the car can lead to the potential of a stone compromising it at some point so your advice is pertinent and I will be careful when using this product.

Unfortunately the "Thank You" button is not available to me yet, else I would have used it.

I am looking forward to using Magma. Thank you again.
