  2. thumnail

    2. If the dirt remains, use a soft cloth with diluted solution of mild soap and clean water to wipe the dirt away. Use clear water again to reveal a clean surface.

Points to Keep in Mind while Cleaning ACP Sheets

To get the optimum results, ACP sheets must be cleaned by keeping in mind, the precautions that are mentioned below: 

  1. Aludecor ACPs must never be cleaned in extreme hot or cold temperatures. If the ACP sheets are cleaned in freezing temperature, then the clear water or diluted mild soap solution will freeze on the surface of the ACP. On the other hand, if the ACP sheets are cleaned in hot temperatures, then it would dry the surface quickly, thus leaving soap/dirt marks. 
  2. MEK or Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Acid based detergents, paint solution based detergents or bleach based detergents  must never be used to clean ACP sheets. 
  3. Always use mild Alkaline solution to clean ACP surfaces and avoid using scouring agents and abrasive substances.
