ProGuard Hard Surface Protection Film stands out as a superior choice for effective, reliable surface protection. Its blend of durability, ease of use, and comprehensive protection capabilities makes it an essential tool for maintaining pristine conditions in a wide range of settings.

To ensure the optimal performance of ProGuard Hard Surface Protection Film, meticulous preparation and application are paramount. This detailed guide will take you through each step necessary to achieve a seamless and effective installation, guaranteeing your hard surfaces remain pristine and protected throughout any construction, painting, or DIY project.


Surface Preparation:

Before applying ProGuard Hard Surface Protection Film, it's crucial that the surface is prepared correctly to ensure the film adheres properly and provides the intended level of protection. Begin by thoroughly cleaning the surface area. This involves removing any debris, dust, or spillages that may have accumulated. The aim is to achieve a clean, sound, and dry surface, as any residue or moisture can compromise the adhesive quality of the film and reduce its effectiveness.

Vacuuming is highly recommended to ensure that even the finest particles are removed. For surfaces like vinyl, marble, tiles, and cured timber floors, a damp cloth can be used to wipe away any marks or stains, followed by a dry cloth to ensure the area is completely dry. Pay special attention to the corners and edges, as these areas often harbour more dust and are critical for ensuring a secure edge seal.


Application Method:

Once the surface is prepared, you can begin the application of the ProGuard Hard Surface Protection Film. Remove the outer packaging from the roll and position the roll on the floor, facing the direction you intend to apply the film. This ensures that as you unroll the film, the adhesive side is in contact with the surface you're protecting.

Unwind approximately 600mm of material to start and carefully press it down onto the surface, smoothing it out by hand or foot. This initial adhesion is crucial for a successful application, so take the time to ensure it's securely in place without any creases or air bubbles.

For the next step, gently pull the roll towards you, maintaining a straight line as you go. It's essential that the film is applied evenly without any wrinkles, as this ensures complete coverage and protection of the surface beneath. As you unwind the film, continue to smooth it out with your hands or feet. This not only helps in removing air bubbles but also in ensuring the film adheres firmly to the surface.

An effective technique for laying the ProGuard Hard Surface Protection Film, especially over larger areas, involves using a soft broom or brush. Position the broom behind the roll and push it along the surface. The broom acts as a tool to smooth out the film and remove air bubbles as it unwinds. This method is particularly useful for achieving a tight bond between the film and the surface, ensuring that the protective film stays in place throughout the duration of your project.

As you proceed, regularly check that the film is adhering correctly and adjust your application technique as necessary. If at any point the film does not stick as expected, revisit the surface preparation stage to ensure the area is clean and dry.

Once the application is complete, the ProGuard Hard Surface Protection Film provides a durable, waterproof barrier against spillages, debris, and other potential sources of damage. Remember, for optimal results, the film should be removed after a maximum of 40 days, and its adhesion should be regularly checked, especially before commencing work in the area.

By following these detailed instructions, you can confidently protect your hard surfaces, ensuring they remain undamaged and in perfect condition, saving time and resources on post-project clean-up.
