CARE & MAINTENANCE for your DURAFINSH Coatings
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Your bathtub has been reglazed with the finest aliphatic urethane coating. When fully cured surfaces are highly wear resistant, and if properly used and maintained, will look good for years to come. Here are a few tips to get the most out from your reglazed fixture.
DO NOT use the finish for 48 hours after refinishing.
When removing the masking paper, peel it off slowly and in an upward and outward direction. Use particular care around the drain piece. It is crucial to add caulk around the perimeter of the tub.
Though the surface can be put back into use after two day’s, your new finish will not be fully cured until 30 day’s have passed. During this period: DO NOT leave soap, bottles, etc… on the finished surface for a prolonged period of time.
Regularly clean the finish with liquid cleaners such as: Fantastic, 409, Windex, Dow Scrubbing Bubbles - Soap Scum Remover, CLR Bath & Kitchen multi-purpose Cleaner (Yellow spray bottle), HoweverALWAYS check the cleaners warning labels for use on reglazed tubs.(Some new cleaners actually contain acids as their cleaning agent.) For Example: NEVER use "Rust or Lime Removing Cleaners."
- DO NOT use abrasive cleaners that will scratch the surface. (Comet, Bonami, Ajax, etc.)
- DO NOT use abrasive cleaning cloths (Norwex) or abrasive sponges (Majic Eraser), as they will dull the finish over time.
- DO NOT drop sharp or heavy objects on the finish, which may cause it to chip.
- DO NOT bath animals (cats and dogs) in the tub as their sharp claws may scratch the finish.
- DO NOT use rubber bath mats with suction cups or install vinyl stickers.
All leaky faucets must be repaired to protect the finish against the eroding effects of dripping water.
Destruction of the finish may occur through the improper use of acid bearing compounds, (drain openers, tile grout cleaners) all chemicals must be kept away from the finish, (cosmetics, hair dyes, perfumes) which may stain or mar the finish.
Remember, if you treat you new finish with respect, clean it regularly, and follow the above guidelines, your fixture will stay shiny and bright for years to come.
