Maintaining and protecting aluminium

Periodic polishing suffices to maintain aluminium. Depending on your living environment, you will need to polish your aluminium doors, windows, sliding systems, etc. 2 to 4 times a year. Twice a year is sufficient nationally,  with around four times a year in urban and coastal areas. Also, clean the inside of window frames and sliding tracks regularly so that your windows can keep opening easily and your sliding windows slide open smoothly.


Mild cleaning products for aluminium maintenance

For cleaning, use Aliplast Periodi Clean with lukewarm water.  Rinse with cold, clear water and dry. Always use a soft cloth. Never use solvents such as acetone, petrol or nail varnish remover for cleaning. Also avoid acids (vinegar) or alkaline products such as ammonia or baking soda, and do not clean or treat your windows in bright sunshine or high temperatures.


Maintaining aluminium for good colour retention

An annual treatment for long-term colour retention is recommended for your aluminium. It is best to do such a thorough maintenance once a year. Apply Maxi gloss right after polishing with Periodi Clean. Maxigloss provides a cleaning effect and long-term protection against soiling. Moreover, it gives your paintwork a new and deeper shine. Highly recommended for maintaining your aluminium.
