5 Understanding Product Limitations
1. Trafficability: CWS Membrane is tough and durable and can withstand general foot traffic. However, as the membrane is flexible, it can be damaged by point loads, heavyweights, sharps, scuffing, dragging items across the surface and general excessive abuse and should be protected against these. It is not suitable for vehicular traffic.
2. Staining: As we are unable to test for all manner of stains and sources of stains, as a precaution, given that the membrane is transparent and is most likely more susceptible to showing stains than a coloured coating, the membrane should be protected from possible sources of stains such as chemicals, dyes, leaves, certain wines etc. Spills should be immediately cleaned with a suitable detergent.
3. Anti Slip: once applied the surface of CWS may be slippery when used in conjunction with soapy surfaces, anti-slip applications are provided with all kits and should be installed as instructed.
4. Rising Damp: CWS is not designed to prevent rising damp.
5. Care after installation: CWS has anti-mould additive similar to silicone however to ensure best practice in areas where there is limited natural sunlight care should be taken to ensure that water is removed from the surface immediately, i.e. showers are wiped down after use.
6. Please refer to Customer Care Instructions available from downloads.
