Failure to follow instructions carefully may cause damage.
Katch is intended for temporary surface protection. Avoid adhering to surfaces where delamination is present as it may cause damage to the surface. Surfaces must be clean, dry, and free of any chemical cleaners and contaminants. Test the material in a small inconspicuous area to ensure adequate adhesion and clean removal without surface damage. Before introducing the product into any new location, especially ignitable materials, the user should conduct a proper industrial hygiene risk assessment. Doing so will help confirm the product is appropriate for its setting, application, safety, and removal.
Required surface preparation:
- Sweep or vacuum surfaces to remove loose dirt and dust.
- Surfaces must be thoroughly dry for proper adhesion.
- Surfaces must be free of all chemical cleaners and residue.
- Check the surface for damage or delamination before applying the material.
- Avoid stretching material during installation.
- Avoid significant overlaps (more than 1").
- Smooth material down using hand or a flat edge squeegee.
- Cut to length with scissors or a razor blade from the non-adhesive side.
How to use:
- Roll out Katch and attach to the surface with the adhesive side down.
- Should be attached starting at one end and attaching as the product lays down from end-to-end.
- Smooth to reduce bubbles and wrinkles using hand or a flat edge squeegee.
- It is recommended not to lay straight down, as it will create extra and unnecessary wrinkles.
- To reuse, pull up the same direction it was applied. Start at one end, lift, and re-attach using installation instructions, laying it down from end-to-end. Smooth out any wrinkles.
- Product construction is designed to be impervious to many liquids including standard water-borne or solvent-borne products (paints, cleaners, etc.) and oils.
- To ensure safety, it is recommended to clean up spills that pool on the surface of the product after the spill occurs.
- Product can continue to be used after the spill has been cleaned up.
- Make sure all liquid combustible-type products have been removed or have evaporated.
- Manually pull up the product in the same direction that it was applied.
- Vacuum up any loose debris if necessary.
- Reapply product to the work surface(s) following the "Installation Instructions."
- Reuse as long as the temporary adhesive on Katch is still functional. Usually, it will last 3-5 times being re-attached, but performance will vary depending on use and surface.
Change out recommendation:
- For most applications, the general guideline would be 2-4 weeks.
- To ensure clean and easy removal, the material replacement schedule should be based on the type of surface, amount of liquid, and the weight and frequency of the traffic going over the product.
- Consult local and state guidelines for proper disposal

- Class 1 (A) Interior Wall Finish
The plastic bag/film is dangerous as a choking hazard. Keep away from children.
Katch is a strippable covering intended to help protect and facilitate the cleaning of work surfaces. Do not apply or remove the product when explosive concentrations of ignitable materials are present, as static discharge may occur during such activity. Before application and removal, users are instructed to provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust ignitable vapors and dust per good industrial hygiene practice.

Storage and Handling
- For best performance, use this product within 24 months from the date of manufacture.
- Store product in the original carton under normal conditions of 70F (21C) and 50% relative humidity.
- Avoid storing material in temperatures above 85F (29C) for long periods.
- Keep material covered and clean.
To reduce the risks associated with fire and explosion: Do not apply or remove the product when explosive concentrations of ignitable materials are present. Static discharge may occur during such activity. Provide mechanical ventilation to disperse or exhaust combustible vapors and dust per good industrial hygiene practice.
To reduce the risks associated with fire and explosion or tripping and falling: Pooled liquid on the product should be wiped up immediately.
Ensure product edges are bonded firmly to flooring and/or walking surfaces to reduce the risks associated with tripping and falling.
