Batiface ECO is the ideal choice when cleaning your conservatory roof, uPVC doors and windows or fascia boards as it is a powerful yet biodegradable surface cleaner. It can be used on most hard surfaces including timber. As it can be applied and then left to act, it is ideal where speed is an issue or on items in situ such as street signs.
Batiface ECO is not only effective at cleaning and removing light staining from uPVC door and window frames but is especially good at removing the darkening and weather damage that occurs to uPVC surfaces over a period of time. If your uPVC surface is stained with atmospheric damage then simply spray diluted ECO over the surface a leave to act for a few minutes before wiping with a damp cloth.
Batiface ECO should be sprayed directly onto the surface to remove green algae or moss and generally clean without scrubbing for general cleaning of uPVC or any hard surface. Batiface ECO can be used pure for very heavy soiling.
For general use, it can be diluted in water: 1:20 (product:water) for very light soiling or 1:10 for general maintenance or 1:5 for normal circumstances. Apply with a sprayer/brush or cloth, work in and leave for 10-15 minutes. It does not need to be rinsed but it may be preferable to clean the surface thoroughly once the action has taken place. As Batiface ECO is a concentrate, when mixed with water it will cover up to 100m2 per litre. Each diluted litre covers 5m2.
Please use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.
On porous surfaces, we recommend that, once clean and dry, CONCENTRATED MOSS & ALGAE KILLER - BATICLEAN CRis applied to the surface to protect against the future growth of algae and other mosses.
What is the best way to clean my white, plastic door and window frames?
It really depends upon what level of cleaning that is required. If the frames are just generally looking dull and have dark staining (caused by age and weather) then mix a solution of around 5%-10% concentration and spray onto the frames. Leave to act for around 10 minutes before wiping with a cloth or light scouring pad (obviously, don't use anything that will scratch the surface) and clean water. If the staining is very heavy then a second application may be required or leave to act for a little longer. Batiface ECO is a strong cleaning product so be prepared to clean the glass after the frames as a lot of dirt will be removed and some of it will end up on the glass.
Do I have to rinse the surface after treatment?
No. If rinsing is easy and quick to do, then we would always recommend doing it but for some surfaces (such as conservatory roofs) rinsing can be awkward so there is no actural requirement to rinse the surface after application.
What is the best way to apply Batiface ECO?
Batiface ECO can be applied however best suits you but we would recommend a sprayer with EPDM seals which can handle the pH of the product. You can use Batiface ECO in any type of sprayer but if you use one with EPDM seals then it will not be damaged by the alkaline solution and will, therefore, last much longer than a normal sprayer. We have a number of compression sprayers with EPDM seals, starting with our 1-litre hand sprayer and moving up to a 5-litre and 10-litre model.
