Cleaning and Care for the Marine Grade Polymer
Avoid teak oil and other products that can stain the finish. Avoid heat sources that exceed 180 degrees F. Only routine cleaning with common detergents is required. Nylon scrub pads and brushes should be used with care because excessive force can mar the finish. For resistant stains, apply bleach and allow it to soak in. Use citrus cleaner, alcohol or mineral spirits to remove grease or oil stains. Automotive silicone spray products or household furniture polish can help to hide scratches in the surface. Furniture that will be stored outside or in other cold areas should be drained of any water to avoid ice damage in the tubing.
Cleaning and Care for Powdercoat Finish on Aluminum
To keep furniture looking new, use Soft Scrub or similar non-abrasive products to remove scuff marks and scratches. Use lemon oil for protection and natural soap and water for cleaning. Powder coating is one of the most durable protective coatings available for metal surfaces, but proper care will help prolong the finish. Over time, powder coated finishes exposed to the elements may show signs of weathering such as reduced gloss and slight color loss. A consistent schedule of cleaning the surface will help remove dirt, grime and other surface buildup that may be harmful to the powder coating finish. We do not recommend using chemical cleaners such as Acetone, Mineral Spirits or Lacquer thinners. Any type of chemical that is harmful to the powder coat surface should be removed or cleaned immediately.
