    How strong was the ubik?
    I have left it on upvc roofs for a good while to bite in before with no issues and once did a high window with it and then had an equipment breakdown and by the time Adams0211 came round and helped me it was about 40 minutes without rinsing off and was fine
    I know virosol will stain if left too long or too strong as I have done that
    Maybe the same has happened if not washed off

    sounds like poor training on how to use chemicals to me! making it to strong, and leaving it on for to long.

    it would be an insurance job, as some of these composite doors can run upto a £1000 and that can be without fitting!!!!

    On the new style of composite doors the manufacturer says 'no chemicals' at all including fairy and the likes. Maybee this is why.
    Bout £700 for a composite front door as I recall.
    Sorry it's not happy news.

    Damo is this in relation to the problem? I only ask as last time it turned to a chat on Ford Rs motors whichbis why I split the thread to keep this on topic.

    Yeah i know you split it up which is fine, but you took away the message that asked the OP to email me as i have advice for him IF it's what i think it is. However not keen to put it on fourm. What i can do though, is just PM him.
