Powder Coating Care and Maintenance

The effects of ultra violet light, pollution, dirt, grime and salt deposits can all accumulate on your powder coated surface over time. To extend the effective life of powder coatings and protect any warranty requirements, a very simple regular maintenance program should be implemented for the removal of any residues.

As a general rule, cleaning should take place every 4 months. However, in areas where pollutants are more prevalent especially in coastal or industrial regions a cleaning program should be carried out on a more frequent basis (refer to maintenance chart).

We recommend Panther Wash to reduce corrosion and enhance the life of your powder coat.

To clean your powder coated surface:

  1. Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
  2. Use a soft brush (non abrasive) or cloth, and Panther Wash solution to remove dust, salt and other deposits.
  3. Rinse off with clean fresh water.

Detergents that recommend the use of gloves when handling should be avoided as this is a good indication that the detergent is harsh and, therefore unsuitable for cleaning your powder coating.

If paint splashes, sealants or other residue need to be removed, then either Methylated Spirits,Turpentine, or White Spirits may be used safely.

Door Hardware Care and Maintenance

Handles:                Regular dusting with a soft cloth and occasional application of furniture polish will help prolong the life of the lacquer.  DO NOT use metal polish or abrasive cleaners.

Lock/Cylinder:      After locking the door always remove the key from the lock and store away from the security door.  Be sure to have easy access to the key in case of emergency.

Operating the key on one side of the door while a second key is inserted on the other side of the lock will damage the lock.
