LARP SHIELD CARE & MAINTENANCE
Since Latex is a natural product, regular care and maintenance of your Epic Armoury LARP swords, axes, maces, shields and polearms is necessary to ensure their durability on the battlefield.
Silicone re-hydrates the Latex, keeping it supple and flexible and providing a small film to keep the surface slippery to prevent friction between weapons. You can never use too much silicone.
Note: Maintenance is required to obtain your right to claim our two 2-Year Warranty!
Cleaning & Inspection:
When you tend to your LARP weapon it means that you both care for it and the safety of others. We like to say, pretend that your sword is real and you want to keep it as sharp as you can between each battle.
Wipe the surface of the weapon down using a damp rag or sponge to remove dust and mud, grease or oils that can harm the latex.
Apply a liberal amount our 100% silicone on any surface that contains latex then wipe it evenly over the entire surface using a thin, dry cotton cloth. We recommend that you do so outdoors to avoid over-spray on your floors or furniture.
These preventive methods serve two purposes. The first is maintenance and the second allows you to visibly and physically inspect your weapons before combat.
Prevent Doing The Following:
- Do not leave your latex weapon lying in the sun over prolonged periods. The sun is devastating on all latex weapons. Leaving it in direct sunlight in your car will damage the weapon.
- Avoid touching your latex weapon if you are using bug spray containing the ''DEET'' Chemical. Deet dissolves and chemically changes the composition of the latex. This process is irreversible and deteriorates the latex.
- Do not use any oils or chemicals other than 100% silicone to treat the latex. Most products sold in spray cans contain a compound to prevent the blocking of the nozzle. This chemical will damage the surface over time.
- Never store the LARP weapon on it’s tip or under any heavy equipment.
