CrystalClear Care and Maintenance

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. 

To clean, spray Strataglass Protective Cleaner directly on the surface of the CrystalClear or onto a soft cotton or micro fiber cloth.  Gently wipe the CrystalClear 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 liquids, creams, chemicals or sprays that contact the CrystalClear surface. 

To polish and protect, make sure the CrystalClear curtains are clean and dry.  Apply a light coat of Strataglass Protective Polish 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 as needed.  Over time, with multiple applications, the polish will build up a strong protective barrier.    

NEVER:

  • Use Windex, Rain-X, Pledge, Plexus, Simple Green, Orpine or any other harsh cleaner to clean CrystalClear.
  • Use a car wax or any kind of wash and wax to protect CrystalClear curtains.
  • Use cleaners, polishes, scratch removers, or any products intended for commercial grade vinyl or plastic.

Troubleshooting

  1. How do I remove the cloudy appearance after the curtains were rolled up and stored wet?
    1. Any whiteness or clouding that develops from storing clear vinyl curtains wet will gradually disappear when the curtain is deployed and exposed to sunlight.  You can speed up this process with a heat gun or common hair dryer.  Do not overheat or concentrate heat in one area for any length of time. 

  2. How do I remove any winkles or waves that may appear in the curtains after they were rolled up?
    1. Any wrinkles or waves that develop from rolling or folding clear vinyl curtains will gradually disappear when exposed to heat.  Sunlight on a warm day will usually solve the problem.   You can speed up this process with a heat gun or common hair dryer.  Do not overheat or concentrate heat in one area for any length of time.

  3. How do I Improve watershed off the clear vinyl curtains? 
    1. This is usually due to salt and dirt build-up on the surface of the vinyl. Wash thoroughly first, then apply STRATAGLASS Protective Polish to restore the surface to a slick finish.
