maintenance


Anodised Finishes
Deterioration of anodic oxidation (anodising) occurs mainly from moisture retained on the surface by grime deposition particularly where chloride ions or sulphur is present.


Regular cleaning (even as frequently as monthly in severe marine or industrial locations) is necessary to prolong the life of the finish.


Anodised finishes should be washed with warm water with a mild soap solution. A fibre brush may be used to loosen attached grime. The use of abrasive material such as emery paper or steel wool should be avoided.


Cleaned surfaces should be rinsed with liberal applications of clean water.


Greasy deposits may be cleaned with a soft cloth dipped in white spirit. Acid, alkaline or emulsion cleaners should be avoided.

Powdercoat Finishes
Powdercoat finishes must be cleaned in the same manner as for anodised material. (White spirit is not recommended)


Abrasives, caustic or acidic substances should not be used.


In installation, contact with silicone, mortar (particularly) or other chemical substances should be avoided.
