The natural beauty and lustre of anodising has been proven to stand the test of time. In 20 years, with proper maintenance, your project will look as good as the day you installed it.

Deterioration of the anodised coating can occur, mainly as a result of grime build up which retains contaminated moisture permitting attack of the surface thereby damaging the finish.

If regularly maintained, wash down anodised aluminium with warm water containing a suitable wetting agent or with a mild soap solution. Hand rubbing is often used for small work, for larger projects utensils such as fibre brushes may be more practical.

More difficult grime deposits may require the use of a mild abrasive such as pumice powder or an automotive cutting compound and water (test in a concealed area first) Where greasy deposits are concerned, cleaning may require a soft cloth dipped in white spirits.

It is necessary to thoroughly rinse with water after cleaning especially where crevices are present to ensure removal of all residues.
