Caring for Anodised Aluminium, Polished Brass and Stainless Steel
These products are manufactured from high quality HE9 aluminium, 316 stainless steel and electrophoretic coated brass especially suitable for pressings, extrusions and diecastings. Most of these items require surface treatment to inhibit corrosion, and whilst a product may remain mechanically sound for a lifetime, its appearance may deteriorate more quickly, mainly due to the conditions of exposure in service. Dust is one of the main reasons for corrosion, either acid or alkaline. Salt in marine atmospheres is also very corrosive. We recommend, therefore, that our products be kept clean by frequent dusting, and an occasional wipe with warm soapy water. This is far more effective than the more drastic treatment with polishes, some of which are very abrasive and can damage the surface.
