Tips

Oxygen Icon Box

Ensure the surface of the frame is sound i.e. no flaking or bubbling paint. All porous surfaces must be sealed i.e. raw timber, brickwork or concrete. These surfaces continually leach moisture and natural oils which hinder the adhesive performance.

Oxygen Icon Box

Some paint manufacturers use Teflon as a surface protector – you will need to sand your frame lightly with 1200 grit Wet & Dry paper to make a key for the adhesive. The same goes for some powder coated frames.

Oxygen Icon Box

PVC frames may be laminated, this interferes with the adhesive performance. VELCRO® Brand recommend a product called Septone from your auto shop, use it as a pre – wash before installation.

Oxygen Icon Box

New paint must be fully cured, follow manufacturers instructions for curing times. Paint vapours inhibit the strong performance of the adhesive.

Oxygen Icon Box

Resistance to edge peeling can be improved by nipping or rounding the corner of VELCRO® Brand fastener.

Oxygen Icon Box

All folds in your screens from shipping will fall out.

Oxygen Icon Box

Corners lifting are an indication that the VELCRO® Brand fastener has been contaminated during installation or there hasn’t been enough pressure applied. This can be resolved with a drop of super glue.
