Preparing the Surface
All surfaces must be clean and debris free. Always test the product on an inconspicuous area for suitability.
Apply to clean or new rugs or carpets. In a slow, sweeping motion, spray on the rug or carpet evenly. Approximate drying time is two hours. After 2 hours, repellency can be checked by dropping small drops of water on the surface. If the surface is dried, water beading should occur on the surface. To remove the dropped water, press down gently with a white paper towel.
If a spillage occurs, absorb immediately with a clean cloth or a white paper towel. A sponge along with cold clean water should be used on any residue or a dried liquid stain. Do not scrub. For a semi- solid or a greasy stain, remove the spilled material as much as possible with a spoon or a blunt knife. Mix warm water with a small amount of mild detergent and sponge the stain gently until it is removed. Any left out residue of detergent should be removed immediately with clean and clear water.
Cleaning Application Equipment
Rinse equipment with turps, followed by a rinse with warm water.
1 Liter will be approximately sufficient to cover up an area of 40 sq. metres.
Highly flammable. Liquid and vapour is harmful or fatal if swallowed. Use in a well-ventilated area. Open any doors and windows available and ventilate the area properly. Use fans if necessary. Extinguish heat sources and keep away from heat, open flames, sparks, oxidizing materials, and from possible ignition sources distant from application site (i.e. pilot lights, cigarettes, etc.) Do not smoke in the area surrounding the application is happening. Do not breathe gas/fumes/vapour/spray. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after usage.
Storage and Disposal
Protect the container from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50oC. Do not pierce or burn even when the container is empty. Dispose with garbage or leave at an appropriate metal recycling collection point.
On Leather, rugs and carpets, re-application is recommended after several professional cleanings. If used on upholstery fabrics, product will normally retain its repellency after three steam cleans. However, it is recommended that the water droplet test* be performed on the fabric to ensure continued repellency and product reapplied if necessary. If applied to clothing, the product can last up to ten machine washings. However, it is recommended that repellency be tested after each wash by the water droplet test* as the manufacturer has no control over products used during cleaning or the type of cleaning method. Reapply if necessary. Note: Harsh cleaning methods and high-alkaline or solvent- based cleaners will reduce the life expectancy of the product.
* Repellency can be checked with small drops of water. Water beading should occur when beads of water are dropped onto the surface. Remove water by pressing down gently with white paper towel.
