To keep your ProtectiveSKINS at its best, please use the following maintenance requirements:

DO prevent, as much as is possible, mortar / render splashing onto window

DO clean windows daily and remove mortar / render build-up from membrane

DO use light hose or wet sponge to remove debris from membrane

DO, for best results, place painters paper or tape over membrane on frame when rendering/painting reveals

DO wet down membrane on windows with light hose or sponge before removing

DO remove by starting at one corner and carefully peeling the membrane off in whole sections

DO use additional water to remove from frame

DO use additional water to remove mortar/render that has set

DO wash down surrounding areas removing all membrane from pavers, brickwork and concrete

DO place all removed membrane in nearest receptacle

DO take Special Care when removing pressure sensitive tape. Any adhesive residue should be removed with an approved surface cleaner. Adhesive residue must not be left to dry. If tape is not professionally removed damage to the surface is possible

DO remove membrane prior to pressure brick cleaning

DO NOT allow large lumps of mortar/render to set on window

DO NOT let removed membrane dry on finished surfaces

DO NOT rub edge of trowel along window frame when rendering reveals if membrane has not cured

Membrane becomes elastic in hot temps and stiff in cold temps. Removal is easier in mild temps or with the use of additional water.
