Care & Maintenance
Like any other painted surface, powder coated aluminium performs at its best when it is properly cared for. Keeping the surface free from pollutants and environmental contaminants will give you the maximum benefit and long lasting performance from your powder coated surface.
A gentle clean with a soft brush and mild detergent, followed by a fresh water rinse, will maintain the long-term performance of your powder coated products. In rural or normal urban environments, cleaning should occur every 12 months. In areas of high pollution, such as industrial areas or coastal environments, cleaning should occur every three months. In particularly hazardous locations such as beachfronts, severe marine environments or areas of high industrial pollution, cleaning should occur monthly. Do not use strong solvents, abrasive cleaning products or any product recommended for thinning paints. If you need to remove splashed paint, sealants or mastics from your powder coated products use white spirits, carry out cleaning in shade and during cooler temperatures using a soft cloth and gentle wiping only.
We recommend that prior to using any cleaning agent on your windows or doors, you test a small non-visible area of your powder coated product to ensure that no visual colour change or damage will occur. Ask your fabricator for the care and maintenance information specific to your product choice.
The delivery time and cost of the finishes available in this finish card will vary depending on your choice. Please obtain a comprehensive quote from your Vantage or Elevate™ fabricator prior to placing your order.
