Specifications

How to Specify Aluminium. Example –(Dulux Electro® Black Ace 9069116F) to meet AAMA2604. Product must be applied by a Dulux Registered Aluminium Applicator and must offer a 25 year durability warranty.

Care and Maintenance

Refer to AAMA 609 and 610

As a general rule, cleaning of externally located powder coating surfaces must take place every six months. Where salts/pollutants are more prevalent such as seaside, industrial and geothermal areas, a cleaning program should be carried out more frequently.

THREE STEPS TO CLEANING POWDER COATED SURFACES

  1. Remove loose deposits with a wet sponge (avoid scratching the surface by dry dusting).
  2. Using a soft clean cloth and a mild detergent in warm water, clean the powder coating to remove dust, salt or other deposits.
  3. Always rinse after cleaning with fresh water to remove any remaining detergent.

WARNING

In some cases, strong solvents recommended for thinning various types of paints and also for cleaning up mastics/sealants are harmful to the extended life of the powder coated surface. These solvents should not be used for cleaning purposes and will render the warranty void if used. If paint splashes or sealants/mastics need to be removed then the following solvents can be used safely: Methylated Spirits, Ethyl Alcohol, Isopropanol.
