It's very important to have a clean rotor blade airfoil for proper lift and performance, and not disrupt the airflow with dead bugs or debris that may accumulate during normal use.
BugSlide is an all-in-one cleaner, polish, and bug remover to safely use on your Skywheels fiberglass rotor blades, gyroplane enclosure, plexiglass windscreen, and metal and plastic parts.
The product is available in either a 4 oz. Travel Kit or 16 oz. Spray Bottle Shop Kit. Each kit comes with a microfiber towel.
The Benefits of BugSlide:
- Safe for all surfaces
- Quickly removes and repels bug residue, dirt, grime, and dust
- One-step, no water needed
- Provides a protective microscopic sheen
- Contains UV protectants and may be used in direct sunlight
- A non-abrasive based cleaner that contains no wax, petroleum products, silicone, Teflon, solvents, or harsh chemicals
Surfaces do not need washing prior to use (unless excessively dirty).
For Cleaning and Polishing
Spray surfaces, wipe with microfiber towel, flip towel over and lightly buff. BugSlide only enhances your existing finish. If the surface has a flat finish, it will remain flat and streak free. It will not shine. At the same time, if you have a glossy finish, it will buff to a brillant, streak-free shine. NOTE: When cleaning electronic items, mist on towel, then wipe surface.
To Remove Bugs:
Spray directly on bugs to be removed, doing a small section at a time. Let sit for 30-60 seconds to release bugs, then flip towel to the dry side and lightly buff. Baked on bugs may require more time and a second application. The product can be applied in direct sunlight.
