Using your Style Cover Window in wet and dusty conditions
Your Style Cover Window is waterproof in compliance with the Ingress Protection
(IP) ratings IPX5 and IPX8, as explained in the table below.
These specific IP ratings mean that your Style Cover Window is protected against
low pressure water stream as well as against the effects of immersion for 30
minutes in fresh (non-saline) water up to 1.5 metres deep.
Even if your Style Cover Window is resistant to water, you should avoid using it
unnecessarily in or under water and should avoid exposing it to moist
environments with extreme high or low temperatures and high humidity.
Never immerse your Style Cover Window in hot water, non-fresh water (for
example, spring water, chlorinated pool water and sea water) or other kinds of
water that could damage it. Also, never expose the Style Cover Window to any
liquid chemicals, for example, detergent, alcohol and other abrasive liquids such as
juice, vinegar and ketchup. After exposure to non-fresh water, rinse your Style
Cover Window using fresh water.
If your Style Cover Window gets exposed to water, make sure it is completely dry
before using it again. For example, if the Style Cover Window has not completely
dried, it may not respond when you tap the window, or functions such as data
transfer and calling might be negatively impacted.
Do not attach the Style Cover Window to or remove it from your Xperia™ device

your Xperia™ device and the Style Cover Window might incur scratch damage.
There is a possibility of discolouration or colour migration due to friction, sweating
and exposure to non-fresh water. Be mindful of this if you are using the Style Cover
Window in close proximity to fabrics and other materials.
These instructions for use in wet and dusty conditions apply only to use of the Style Cover
Window. Your Xperia™ device may have its own instructions and restrictions on use in wet
and dusty conditions. Please ensure you check these too before exposing the device to
