Results may vary; It is always advised to test small areas before proceeding with the whole door; Keep in mind that the polymeric window frames and door edge cap is comprised of polymeric materials that are susceptible to softening with prolonged exposure to certain chemicals / solvents. After the chemicals /solvents have evaporated the surface hardness will return. When certain grades of stiff bristle brushes are used on the chemically softened the door edge or window frames surfaces can be abraded, great care in the method of removal is advised.

Follow manufacturer’s instructions in regards personal protection.
