CARE OF FINISHES
POLISHED CHROME (CP), SATIN CHROME (SCP), POLISHED NICKEL (PN), SATIN NICKEL (SN), POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL (PSS), SATIN STAINLESS STEEL (SSS) An occasional wipe over with a cloth dampened with good light oil is recommended.
POLISHED BRASS UNLACQUERED (PBUL)
Highly polished solid brass. The finish can either be regularly polished to retain it’s shine or left to age naturally.
THE FOLLOWING FINISHES ARE APPLIED ON SOLID BRASS & THEN LACQUERED.
SATIN BRASS (SB), ANTIQUE BRASS (AB), BRUSHED ANTIQUE BRASS (BAB), APPLIED BRONZE (BZ), DARK BRONZE (DB), POLISHED COPPER (PCOP), SATIN COPPER (SCOP), BLACK NICKEL (BLN), PEWTER (PEW) To maintain the above finishes, regular dusting with a soft cloth and an occasional application of a good quality wax furniture polish will help prolong the life of the lacquer. On no account should the above finishes be treated with metal polishes or abrasive cleaners. It must be bourne in mind, that however good the lacquer, and however well applied, it remains a thin coat of protective material that will eventually break down, particularly when confronted with difficult atmospheric conditions or prolonged exterior exposure. The life of lacquer is beyond our control and cannot be guaranteed. The above instructions also apply for maintenance of Polished & Lacquered Brass.
We also provide a cleaning and restoration service for old ironmongery which has deteriorated over a period of time due to usage and exposure to weather. Most of the above finishes can be applied to your old ironmongery. Please contact our sales team for further help.
