How to maintain powder coated material

Powder coating is a coating technique that we often use for our products that contain metal, such as steel or aluminum. It creates a strong and durable coating that is pleasing to look at. 

On this page you will find all information on how to maintain your powder coated products to make sure they last for a long time. We will also give you tips on how to take care of any stains or scratches. 
What is powder coating? 

Powder coating is an electrostatic process in which powder is applied to metal with a spray gun. The product is then placed into an oven to create the even layer: During curing in the oven, the heat will first turn the powder particles into liquid, after which they harden into an aesthetically pleasing and durable coating. The coating will help protect the material from weather influences and helps give the product a long lifespan.  

In this process, any different colored coating can be achieved, which is something that is clear when looking at our powder coated products. 
Daily maintenance of powder coated material 

Powder coated steel or aluminum does not require much maintenance. When used outside, it is important to regularly clean your product and remove possible dirt from nature. 

Cleaning the product 
To clean powder coated material, use a soft cloth or non-abrasive brush. Use lukewarm water or a mild soap solution to clean the surface. Never use harsh detergents. After cleaning, rinse your product with clean water and wipe dry.  Always make sure to remove possible bird droppings as soon as possible, as this can permanently damage the material. 

Preventing scratches 
It is inevitable that the surface will show small scratches over time, even with normal use. You can however avoid bigger scratches by being careful with items with rough or uneven edges. Do not slide these over the surface as this will cause damage. Use a coaster underneath instead. 
Can you repair damage to the coating? 

It is not possible to touch up a small area of damage on powder coated material, as you will always see the repair line. Small scratches are inevitable over time, but you can take measures to prevent damages. Always use a coaster underneath hard objects and do not slide items over the furniture.
