Simple User Guide:
4. POST-TREATMENT - It's best to leave your vehicle or machinery at least 24 hours before use. Lanoguard will take up to a week to fully cure to a "candle-like" texture. Dry to the touch but you'll be able to feel it's there doing it's job. It never fully cures or dries, and this is a vital property to ensure it is non-evaporative and self-healing, meaning it won't crack or dry out leaving parts unprotected. Lanoguard typically lasts up to a year, so be sure to apply yearly to your vehicles/machinery to keep them in optimal condition. You can apply more often if you wish for an even stronger protection!

Trigger sprayer troubleshooting
Here's some important info and tips to help you when using our trigger sprayers. A small number of customers have had issues with the sprayers, and we recognise the importance off the sprayer within the application process. We have tight controls on the manufacturing process to ensure best performance, however if you do have any issues we've produced this guide to assist you, and we'll be here to help troubleshoot with you too if needed.
USING YOUR TRIGGER SPRAYER
- When spraying, adjust the end nozzle to several different settings to fit your spray type. A jet, a mist, or in between. Sometimes before spraying the nozzle is set to a closed position... so be sure to check this before use!
- To prime the trigger sprayer, hold the trigger above the bottle height to prevent hydro-locking
- It can often be best, especially in cold weather, to keep any spray bottles in warm water whilst you spray - as this allows the liquid to flow freely.
CARING FOR YOUR SPRAYER
After use, to prolong the life of your sprayer and keep it handy for future applications, you can follow these steps to clean it ready for storage:
- Flush out the sprayer with warm water and a washing-up liquid - then flush through with clean water. Shake it dry, and hang it up.
- If struggling to clean, it may be blocked. Try spraying a strong citrus or meths cleaner (or our Lanoguard Remover and Gun Wash) through to clear any blockages - or leave the sprayer in warm water for a few minutes to thin down any Lanoguard stuck inside.
Is the sprayer still not working for you? Follow these steps:
- Ensure the hose tube is properly inserted into the trigger head.
- Remove the small sieve filter from the end of the extension hose, we remove these before sending them out but sometimes they can be left on by mistake.
- If the sprayer stops working, try immersing it in hand-hot water for a few minutes and spraying this hand hot water through the tubes to remove any blockages. You can also poke a pin into the spray nozzle to remove possible blockages.
- If no luck, please accept our apologies and be sure to get in touch. We're happy to help. You can use other household sprayers in the meantime, but bear in mind they may use more liquid than necessary. Thank you for understanding.
