It might make the foam come off depending on the glue. One person I know who does it, does it to his old Proteus (spelled right??) he bought it when they first came out with the mask and the foam still looked ok to me.

I had a few questions here:

1) I bought a can of Plexus plastic cleaner from pb discounters...is this stuff alright to use?

2) I don't know if I'm doing something wrong here or what but I am always getting stuff on the inside of my thermal lenses. Mostly it's just dirt and moisture from when my gogs fog up, but once I actually got splatter on the inside lens (don't ask how, I'm not entirely sure myself). What's the safest way to clean the inside lens so it doesn't get all ruined?

3) What exactly should you NOT do to the thermal lens? I keep getting conflicting answers

You don't need it

Just water, gently dry with a very soft/clean cloth

3) What exactly should you NOT do to the thermal lens? I keep getting conflicting answers.

Use only water, it is all you need. Puls try to clen within 1 - 2 hours of getting gogged, this doesn't allow the color to set up into a stain. Also, if your thermal lenses are like the v-force, BE xtreme, and others that use a coating as opposed to a second lens, DO NOT SCRUB, this will take of the coating.

Bottom line, use water, it will take care of it and you can get a great deal on it at your local sink.

Have fun, play safe.

Blessings

you CAN use plexus stuff on ur goggles. i find that using lense cleaners dont leave streaks behind as water usually does.

Guys, I would just like to say that when I cleaned my mask out a couple outings ago, I used to sink and sprayed it down well. Problem is, somehow water got in between my thermal lenses and now the lenses have permanent water spots.

Does this signify a weak or defective lense? If not, if this is normal, then I would recommend against using a lot of water or this may happen to you.

if you just poured water over them then the lens sounds to be defective. If you soaked them for a long period of time and have the double lens they are often separated by a peice of thin foam which could quickly soak up a great deal of water and thus let the water in between the lenses and perhaps is more along the lines of user error. Just MHO, would have to see the lens to know for sure.

first off, water works fine, why risk using something else.
Second, don't ever submerge your JT Thermal lenses in water, you can lose the seal between the 2 layers losing the thermal lense effect.

ANTIFOG

just to let ya know-i work at a department store in the auto dep. and on most of the antifog solutions(EX. RainX Antifog) it says on the fine print on teh back of the label.."Do not use on plastics unless preapproved by manufacturer of the plastic to be treated.." So please read the fine print of commerical antifog solutions before use. Also, many of these products have to be applied on the interior of the "glass/plastic" which one should not do if the have a thermal lense. just something to think about...

To sum things up to all u weirdos out there.
DONT USE ANYTHING BUT WATER. Why start an argument or risk losing an eye when it couldve all been avoided by just using water.
If u want to antifog ur gogles THEN GET THERMAL LENSES.
For cloths use a soft cloth that is clean. Doesnt matter what it is made of just as long as its soft and non-abrasive.
Dont use cleaners or anti fog solvents on ur gogles.

Nuff Said
