Care & Maintenance

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a very durable finish. To prolong the life of your product regular cleaning should be undertaken. The effects light, pollution, dirt, grime and airborne salt deposits can all accumulate over time and should be removed at regular intervals.

Cleaning your powder coating:

  2. Use a sponge or soft brush (non abrasive) and a dilute solution of a mild detergent, eg, pH-neutral liquid hand dishwashing detergent in warm water (DO NOT use solvents) to remove dust, salt and other deposits.
  3. Ensure you thoroughly rinse the surfaces with clean fresh water after cleaning to remove all residues.
