The effects of ultra violet light atmospheric pollution, general dirt, grime and salt deposits can all accumulate over time and should be removed at regular intervals.
Steps to cleaning your powder coating :
- Remove loose deposits with a wet sponge rather than risk micro scratching the surface by dusting.
- Using a soft brush and mild detergent in warm water, clean the powder coating to remove any dust, salt or other deposits.
- Always rinse after cleaning to remove any remaining detergent.
To attain the highest level of quality control with our processes, we send samples of our powder coating work to the Akzo Nobel labs to undergo a thorough testing procedure. This test takes three months to complete as the samples are subject to 1000 hours of acetic acid salt spray. This is to determine any imperfections to the powder coated areas looking for adhesions, blistering or corrosion to base metal. We are proud to say we have passed every test.
It is also important to note that these tests are not an industry requirement, the testing is undertaken to keep our standards and quality at the highest possible level. This is part of our continuous improvement program to ensure that we are at the forefront of powder coating technology and processes.
