Care For Your New Refinishing Coatings
CONGRATULATIONS! You have selected the most durable refinishing coating available by True Glaze.
Our coatings have been used in over four million successful applications nation-wide. By following the guidelines listed below, you will be assured many years of trouble free service.
Please do not use this surface for 48 hours (at room temperature). Although the refinished surface can be put back into full use after 48 hours, the surface will actually require up to 90 days to completely cure.
Please observe the following:
Clean the finish regularly with soap and sponge (this is called surface conditioning).
PLEASE NOTE: All newly refinished surfaces will have some surface dust which will have settled into the new surface. Do not be alarmed because the surface is still within its long term cure period, normal use and regular cleaning will remove all minor surface dust marks.
DO NOT lay soap, bottles, or any other objects on the finished surface. Be sure that your faucet taps are dry and not dripping after using the fixture, and be sure to towel dry the refinished surface after each use.
For long term care:
- DO NOT use any abrasive cleaners on or near the refinished surface. Your new, glossy finish is easily cleaned with any mild liquid cleaner, and should be cleaned after each use. In general, any cleaner approved for use on acrylic/epoxy surfaces is okay to use.
- DO NOT use any abrasive scrubbing pads, such as ScotchBrite™ or any similar scrubbing pad, as this will scratch the new surface.
- DO NOT drop sharp or heavy objects on the finish, which may cause it to chip. Contact True Glaze immediately for repairs if this should occur. Failure to contact us in a timely manner can result in further damage and will void your warranty.
- Faucets must be properly maintained by the owner and user, to protect the new surface. Leaky faucets will erode the finish, causing it to crack and wear out prematurely, therefore voiding your warranty.
- Destruction of the finish may occur through improper use of acid bearing compounds, such as drain openers or tile grout cleaners. All chemicals must be kept away from the finish. These chemicals include, but are not limited to, cosmetics, hair dyes, and perfumes, which may stain or otherwise mar the finish.
- DO NOT use a rubber suction cup bath mat. Most mats will produce a reaction with the new surface when subjected to hot water. Please use certified Refinished Bathtub Safety Mats, which will give years of trouble free service. These mats will not void your guarantee.
REMEMBER: If you treat your new surface with respect, clean it regularly, and follow the above guidelines, your fixture will stay shiny and bright, and give you many years of trouble-free service.
