Q: Is IMAR Yacht Soap (#401) safe to use on my clear windows?
A: Yes. In fact, IMAR Yacht Soap is safe for every surface on your boat.
Q: Is IMAR Yacht Soap (#401) environmentally friendly?
A: Yes. Our IMAR Yacht Soap is biodegradable and with normal use will not harm the environment.
Q: Can I use the IMAR Strataglass Protective Cleaner (#301) and IMAR Strataglass Protective Polish (#302) on all of my clear windows? I am not sure if they are Strataglass Clear Vinyl or not.
A: Yes, our IMAR Strataglass products work great on all clear (non-glass) windows.
Q: What is the correct way to clean clear vinyl and other clear windows?
A: Whenever you wash your boat with our IMAR Yacht Soap, wash your enclosure as well. Once it dries apply the IMAR Strataglass Protective Polish (#302) to your clear windows. Do this every 4-8 weeks as needed. In between polishing, spray our IMAR Strataglass Protective Cleaner (#301) on a daily basis to wipe away finger prints, insect marks, bird droppings, etc. to keep the surface clear and glossy.
Q: Can the IMAR Strataglass Protective Cleaner dry out my clear windows if I use too much?
A: No. The IMAR Strataglass Protective Cleaner has UV protection to keep the surface from drying out and an anti-static formulation that should help repel dirt from attaching. Use of the Protective Cleaner should help to keep the clear windows looking glossy and new.
Q: Can I apply too much IMAR Strataglass Protective Cleaner if I apply it every day?
A: Yes. Too much product will cause the window to look greasy and require extra buffing. If desired you can wash with our IMAR Yacht Soap again to remove the excess that cannot be absorbed, but it is not necessary.
Q: How can I clean the material around my clear windows without harming my windows?
A: Use our IMAR STAMOID Marine product line. They were created so any run-off or over-spray will not cause harm to the clear windows. The product line includes IMAR Stamoid Marine Vinyl Cleaner (#603), IMAR Stamoid Marine Vinyl Protective Cream (#601) and IMAR Stamoid Marine Vinyl Spray (#602).
Q: What is the difference between the Vinyl Protective Cream (#601) and the Vinyl Protective Spray (#602).
A: The Vinyl Protective Cream will last longer and is applied more like a polish every 4-8 weeks. We recommend its use in high traffic and hard to reach areas. The Vinyl Protective Spray is quick and easy to use on a daily basis as needed. This is usually more popular on vinyl seat cushions or areas where you are more likely to see fingerprints, bird droppings, etc. on a regular basis.
Q: Do IMAR Products have a shelf life?
A: No, but they are best when stored between 50 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
