How do I maintain anodised aluminium?

To preserve the anodised aluminium finish over the years it is recommended regular cleaning.

Deterioration of the anodic oxidation coating can occur mainly as a result of dirt deposits and subsequent moisture, particularly when it is contaminated with sulphur compounds.

Cleaning should be carried out from monthly to six monthly intervals according to the degree of contamination from your local environment, whether it is atmospheric pollution or industrial pollution. You should aim to clean the anodised aluminium surface by removing grime deposits without causing any damage to the anodic oxidation coating.

Examples are recommendations only as pollution levels vary in areas:

• Rural & Tropical areas – mild – at least every 9 months

• Metropolitan areas – moderate – at least every 6 months

• Coastal areas – severe – at least every 3 months

• Areas within 5km of the marine coastal area or highly polluted industrial area – very severe – at least every month
