WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Easy To Clean Epoxy

Aftercare and Maintenance is the key to keeping your Metallic Epoxy Interiors brand new even after a prolong period of time. In fact, there’s really nothing special about keeping it strong and happy.

Metallic Epoxy is known to be a “Wonder Material” by being one of the most toughest & durable in the market. It resists chemical attacks, shrugs off high impacts, and is highly heat-resistant. Its stain-proofing and bacteria/mould resistance is legendary, and it’s entirely water-proof.

Yet, as much as we wish otherwise, nothing is perfect. The resilient protective layer will eventually degrade if subjected to inordinately high amounts of damage. To prolong its life, here are a few recommended tips we strongly suggest you to and not to do with your Metallic Epoxy Interiors.

Care and Maintenance

Aftercare and Maintenance is the key to keeping your Metallic Epoxy Interiors brand new even after a prolong period of time. In fact, there’s really nothing special about keeping it strong and happy.

Metallic Epoxy is currently known to be a “Wonder Material” by being one of the most toughest & durable in the market. It resists chemical attacks, shrugs off high impacts, and is highly heat-resistant. Its stain-proofing and bacteria/mould resistance is legendary, and it’s entirely water-proof.

Yet, as much as we wish otherwise, nothing is perfect. The resilient protective layer will eventually degrade if subjected to inordinately high amounts of damage. To prolong its life, here are a few recommended tips we strongly suggest you to and not to do to with your Metallic Epoxy Interiors.

Recommended Tips

    Cleaning Methods

    There is no specific cleaning method required for Metallic Epoxy Interiors. Stick to your own preferred way. Examples include, flushing with clean water, wiping the surface with a damp cloth, steam mopping, regular mopping, sweeping, vacuuming or even a robot cleaner to do your housekeeping.

    You may also include the use of any household soap or cleaners with the above.

    Stain Removal Methods

    Should you encounter a mess, simply use any household cleaner (like JIF/CIF cleaner) and a microfiber cloth. In a scenario of stubborn stain, we would recommend the use of rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover or even thinner. Rub it with a clean microfiber cloth till the offending substance come off.

    As much as you can, wipe and clean spills immediately for hygiene purposes.

    Keep Gravel & Dirt at Bay

    Gravel and dirt can scratch the surface. For floors, prevent that by placing mats at entrances to keep these particles from getting around the interior. Another way is to regularly sweep and vaccum your floors, or leave it to a robot cleaner on a routine.

    For other interior surfaces, ensure that your cloths, tissues or paper towels are free from gravel and dirt before wiping down.

    Keep Damages at Bay

    Dragging and accidental knocking by heavy furniture can cause damage to the surface. For floors, prevent that by using felt floor protectors. Clean or replace your protectors often as dirt and grit can be embedded in them.

    For other interior surfaces, ensure that all surrounding furniture are fitted with baby bumpers to prevent accidental knocks.

Things to Avoid

    Avoid Scrubbing with Abrasive Materials

    Firstly, never ever use an abrasive scrub (like a Scotch-Brite pad) or related cleaning product on your Metallic Epoxy surfaces. This is especially for the mirror or gloss finish.

    The abrasive action will wear through the topcoat over time and expose the epoxy surface below, causing it to lose a vital layer of protection.

    However, soft to medium scrubbing bristles are perfectly fine for our matte and matte anti-slip surfaces as they are built for heavier scratch resistancy.

    Avoid Any Damages

    Second on this list involves Metallic Epoxy’s impact absorption and scratch resistance. Its virtues in these two areas are far more pronounced than in most other materials.

    However, its lack of invincibility should be reiterated. Repeated damage from sharp and heavy objects directly on the surface will wear the topcoat out faster and should be avoided.

    This includes intentional or unintentional damages.

    Avoid Over Exposing To Constant High Heat

    Next, Metallic Epoxy’s heat resistance is graded to 200°C. This means it can take boiling hot water, hot pans, and then some, with minimal effect.

    However, do not constantly over expose your Metallic Epoxy surfaces to these conditions. As much as you can, use a cork pad or other protective material if you intend to place a hot pan or pot on the surface.

    Do note that it is heat resistant and not flame or fire resistant. Therefore, you should ideally keep the flame-throwing to a minimum around the surface. Or anywhere else, for that matter.

    Avoid Using Heavy Industrial Chemicals

    Lastly, avoid using heavy industrial chemicals on your Metallic Epoxy surfaces. Having said, you should not be cleaning your interiors with any heavy industrial chemicals in your home or office for that matter.

    Frequent and long periods of exposure to such heavy industrial chemicals will eventually cause damage to the topcoat. Highly concentrated industrial chemicals should also not be allowed to remain on the surface as well.

    However, should you encounter such scenario, clean it off promptly with a clean damp cloth.
