Frequently Asked Questions

It works! Chemists and chemical engineers have spent more than 6 years perfecting the Solar Shield Protection® formula. The UV fabric protection, weatherproofing, and stain resistance Solar Shield offers is proven. This fabric guard product is so unique that it has even been granted 2 United States patents and 2 foreign patents.
For best results, Solar Shield fabric protection spray should be applied once a year. When used on fabric to guard items such as boat upholstery fabric, car interiors and indoor/outdoor furniture, these textiles will last much longer and maintain their original color when Solar Shield Protection® is applied annually.
“Significantly” means that there is a tremendous improvement when Solar Shield Protection® is applied to fabrics that are particularly prone to fading and staining. We’ve put many of these “problem” fabrics to the test! We took fabrics that don’t last long—the ones that easily fade and stain—and treated them with Solar Shield Protection®. After extensive testing, we discovered that the samples treated with Solar Shield had UV fabric protection and weatherproof barriers. Solar Shield Protection® made even the most troublesome, undesirable fabric into something really worth having.
• When using Solar Shield Protection®, spread the fabric out as flat as possible.
• Put Solar Shield Protection® in an ALL-PLASTIC SPRAYER.
• Adjust the spray nozzle so it pumps out a fine mist.
• Apply the fabric protection spray evenly, lightly, and rapidly.
• Allow to air-dry 24 hours.
• Repeat above steps. Applying two lighter coats of the fabric spray is more effective than applying one thick coat.
• One gallon of Solar Shield Protection® will provide protect against stains and form a weatherproof fabric barrier for approximately 2,500 sq. ft. of medium-weight material.
1) The Solar Shield fabric protection spray should be tested on an inconspicuous area of fabric before total treatment is applied. To do this, wet the corner of a white towel with Solar Shield fabric guard and gently wipe it onto the fabric. Because not all textiles are color-fast, make sure that color from the fabric does not come off onto the towel. If it doesn’t, Solar Shield Protection® should work very well on the fabric. If a little color comes off onto the towel, it may still be fine to treat, but do so very lightly. If a lot of color bleeds from the fabric, you should probably not treat it.

2) Solar Shield Protection® is safe, but use this product carefully. Do not drink it. Do not spray it near a fire or open flame. Use rubber gloves when using the product. Apply it only in a well-ventilated area. If the product comes into contact with hands or eyes, wash it off with mild soap and warm water before it dries.

3) Solar Shield Protection® is to be used on fabric only. If “over spray” comes into contact with other objects, wipe it off before it dries. If the product does dry on objects other than fabric, apply odorless mineral spirits to the area with a towel, which will remove the excess. If the product dries on glass, use the same procedure and then clean with glass cleaner.

• Over-spray that dries on surrounding objects. If this happens, wipe the area with mineral spirits.
• Over-spray on plants or grass. The plants or grass will probably perish but the ground will not be permanently damaged. If over-spray happens, hose the affected area with water.
• Over-spray on shrubs or trees. They may lose a few leaves but will most-likely be okay. If over-spray happens, hose the affected area with water.
• Over-spray on a pet or child. If over-spray happens, bathe the pet or child in warm, soapy water before the product dries.
• Someone drinks the product. SEEK MEDICAL HELP IMMEDIATELY.

Solar Shield Protection® can be applied to those items but is too gentle for those types of fabrics. To weatherproof fabric and achieve U.V. fabric protection on those types of materials, visit www.RayAndRain.com. Among other things, Solar Shield Protection® is best for materials such as boat upholstery fabric, auto upholstery, and patio fabric. This product can also be used for drapes, carpets, and more.
One gallon of Solar Shield Protection® will cover 2,500 square feet. A piece of material that is 12 inches by 12 inches is one square foot. One gallon of this fabric protection spray will cover four car interiors, including the floor mats and trunk. It will cover most of, if not all, of the boat upholstery fabric in a houseboat, including the carpet. One gallon of Solar Shield fabric guard spray will also cover two couches, four chairs, two ottomans and several pillows of a patio set. Basically, a little Solar Shield Protection®goes a long way!
