Tabletop Aftercare

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

Tabletop Aftercare

Aftercare and Maintenance are the keys to keeping your Metallic Epoxy Tabletops brand new even after a prolonged period. There’s nothing special about keeping it strong and happy.

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

Yet, as much as we wish otherwise, nothing is perfect. The resilient protective layer might degrade in the case of being subject to inordinately high amounts of damage. Here are a few recommended Metallic Epoxy Tabletop aftercare tips to prolong its life.

RECOMMENDED TIPS

  • null

    Cleaning Methods

    You can do daily or weekly cleaning with a clean wet cloth. Microfiber cloths would be highly recommended for this process. After the initial damp wipe down, using another clean & dry microfiber cloth would be essential in preventing water spots. This additional step would be required, especially for surfaces with a gloss finish.

    For hygiene purposes, you may use any form of household cleaning agents during the clean-up of oil, etc.

    Stain Removal Methods

    Should you encounter stains. You may use standard detergents available on the market that are recommended for stain removal, such as Magic Clean, Jiff, CIF cleaner, etc. In a scenario of stubborn stains, you may use more potent agents such as 91% or 99% rubbing alcohol, nail polish remover, turpentine, 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.

    Keep Gravel & Dirt at Bay

    Gravel and dirt can scratch the surface when dragged across your tabletops. Prevent that by regularly wiping down your surfaces with a clean microfiber cloth and clearing debris away promptly.

    Ensure that your microfiber cloths are regularly maintained to prevent a build-up of dirt and gravel.

    Keep Damages at Bay

    Objects such as knives, pens, scissors, cutlery and others will cause damage. Prevent that by using a clean mat before placing sharp objects.

    Regularly check on the base of your bowls, plates, cups, etc., to ensure that they are not chipped or damaged. These may cause scratches when dragged along the surface.

THINGS TO AVOID

    Avoid Scrubbing with Abrasive Materials

    Firstly, never use an abrasive scrub like a Scotch-Brite pad, nylon scouring pads, or related cleaning products, as they can scratch your beloved tabletops. This avoidance is mainly applicable to our 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 surfaces, as they are built for heavier scratch resistance.

    Avoid Any Damages

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

    However, we should reiterate its lack of invincibility. Repeated damage from sharp and heavy objects directly on the surface will damage it.

    Though easily repaired, totally avoiding intentional or unintentional damages would still be highly recommended. No one should ever have their beloved tabletops tarnished.

    Avoid Overexpose To Constant High Heat

    Next, Metallic Epoxy’s heat resistance is graded to 200°C. This property means it can take boiling hot water, hot pans, and some with minimal effect. Nevertheless, do not constantly overexpose your tabletops to these conditions. Use a saucer or cork-pad as much as you can.

    Though you probably would not be exposing your tabletops to such high temperatures. Frequent and long periods of exposure to high temperatures will eventually cause damage to your tabletops.

    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.

  • null

    Avoid Using Heavy Industrial Chemicals

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

    Frequent exposure of chemicals will cause damage to the surfaces. Ammonia or any acidic liquor should be avoided, as it will erode the surface.

    Highly concentrated industrial chemicals are not allowed to remain on the surface. In such cases, clean it off promptly with a clean damp cloth.
