Stainless steel cleaning tips
- Cement and mortar traces can be removed with a solution of phosphoric acid and water, or with a specific stainless steel cleaner. Rinse with abundant water and dry immediately. Steel dust that eventually may come out of the tap, might rust once on the surface of the sink. Proceed removing dust immediately and clean the surface with a delicate cleaner and abundant water. For traces that are more persistent, use a solution of water and vinegar (10%).
- To prevent lime and calcium deposits, always rinse the sink and accurately dry the surface with a soft and clean towel. Other deposits can be easily removed with the specific cream cleaner available in our store. Solid sharp-edged objects might damage stainless steel. Never drag rough bottom pans or sharp cutlery in the sink as the surface will be damaged.
- Never use abrasive products to clean the surface.
- The sink surface can be damaged by electrochemical processes if exposed to other metal products for a long time. Avoid the use of bleach, ammonia, muriatic acid, hydrochloric acid, hydrochloric acid, specific cleaners for silver, copper, and aggressive chemicals in general.
- If these substances would accidentally come into contact with the surface, wash immediately with abundant water.
PVD features and daily care
- The PVD technology used in the Titanium sink range is made of thin coatings of ceramic compounds. Such depositions are carried out with an arc deposition method.
- As all stainless steel surfaces even those treated with the PVD finishing can be scratched. Please pay special attention when using sharp-edged tools, rough- bottomed pans or sharp cutlery.
- The sink surfaces cannot be cleaned with abrasive powders and sponges or brillo pads. Metallic products, different from stainless steels, left on the surface on the sink could cause an electro- chemical reaction thus damaging the surface. Even the long lasting contact with food products like vinegar, coffee, red wine, milk can damage the surface.
- Chemical products such as muriatic acid, bleach, ammonia, detergents for silverware and copperware, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride and general abravise detergents have never to be used on PVD surfaces.
