How to prevent paint scratching from car magnets

Car magnets are so in these days. Practically everyone engaged in any kind of business activity knows how valuable these tools are. They have become integral to election campaigning or advertising a business. You can easily spot colorful magnets on trucks, commercial vehicles, and cars. As far as advertising your product, idea or service is concerned, magnets are an inexpensive way to get your message out there. But as with everything else, nothing is perfect and there are disadvantages to using magnets on vehicles. The most common problem is paint scratching. There are ways to protect your vehicle from scratches

All you need do is to keep a few basic things in mind.

  • Before you place a magnet, you must keep a few things in mind. The surface paint on the vehicle should be cleaned.

  • Wax the area. Applying wax to the area creates a protective barrier between the paint and the magnet.

  • Treat the magnetic surface of the car magnet with a mild detergent and water and wipe it clean with a soft cloth.

  • Car magnets cannot stick on curved, bent or angular planes. So make sure you choose a flat or slightly curved area. That way you can be sure that the magnet won’t fly off while you are driving.

  • This may sound like overkill, but you must make an effort to remove the magnet every day and clean both surfaces. That way it’ll stay free of dirt and will last longer, and help prevent any chances of scratching the surface of the vehicle.
