Surface damage on site can range from dust, paint overspray and weathering that will require additional cleaning before handover. More serious surface damage such as scratching or weld spatter can result in repairs or worse replacements, which will cost you time, money and long delays waiting for replacement surfaces.

But not only this – Protectapeel® can also be returned to the manufacturer (Spraylat) for recycling! Simply hand peel the used protective coating off of the surfaces before handover, place it in the original container and return to us – we’ll do the rest!
