Rinsing the Strataglass Curtains
Each time you use the boat flush the curtains thoroughly with clear water to rinse away any salt or environmental abrasives. Air dry or use a high quality chamois or a microfiber towel.
Cleaning the Strataglass Curtains (every 1-2 weeks)
Spray the Strataglass Protective Cleaner directly on the inside and outside surface of the STRATAGLASS or onto a soft cotton or micro fiber cloth. Gently wipe the STRATAGLASS surface to clean. If necessary buff dry with another dry clean cloth.
Strataglass Protective Cleaner should always be on hand for emergency spot cleaning of any harmful liquids creams chemicals or sprays that may come in contact with the STRATAGLASS surface. Polishing the Strataglass Curtains: (every 1-2 months) this is the most important maintenance procedure to extend the life of the curtains and maintain the warranty. Make sure the STRATAGLASS product is clean and dry. Apply a light coat of Strataglass Protective Polish inside and out with small light circular motions using a soft cotton cloth or applicator pad. Allow the polish to quickly dry. Lightly buff with a dry soft cotton or micro fiber cloth to a sparkling smooth shine. The Strataglass Protective Polish should be applied every 1-2 months especially when the enclosure is new. Over time with multiple applications the polish will build up a protective barrier.
Note to the Fabricator:
Upon project completion Strataglass recommend using Strataglass Protective Cleaner to thoroughly clean the enclosure panels followed by a thorough application of Strataglass Protective Polish both inside and out as a final step in the fabrication process. This will establish the first basecoat of protection and promote watershed.
Note to the Owner:
New clear vinyl products are soft and easily impressionable. Strataglass recommend that new STRATAGLASS enclosures panels should be in the installed position and fastened securely to the boat as much as possible. If the new curtains need to be removed and stacked the enclosure panels should be carefully interleafed with a soft fabric such as a bed sheet. Clear vinyl will inherently strengthen over time and become less impressionable. When the boat is not in use always close and fasten the STRATAGLASS enclosure panels in place to prolong the life of your curtains and maintain clarity.

Use a car wax or any kind of wash and wax to protect STRATAGLASS products. This will void the warranty. Use cleaners polishes scratch removers or any products intended for commercial grade vinyl or plastic. This may damage the STRATAGLASS and void the warranty.
