Epic Armouries right to Claim and Complaint
Epic Armoury Latex coated products need regular maintenance with Maintenance Silicone which is 100% pure and acid free. The Silicone will keep the coating flexible and make the weapons last much longer. The Maintenance silicone protects the coating from drying out, and helps the weapon resist wear and tear. Spray the silicone directly onto the latex weapon.
Spray the silicone directly on to your latex weapon and work it on the entire surface. Avoid leather handles and other non-latex or varnish elements. Don't worry, you can never use too much silicone.
To ensure your right to complain and complaint, always maintain your Epic Armouries Foam products with maintenance silicone.
We also recommend you use this on other foam weapons we sell, as it allows more strength to ripping and damage to the outer coating, keeps the colour of the items longer, and generally is useful for maintaining a longer life span of your LARP weapons.
