1.10 What are the maintenance tips on metallic nameplates?
Though metal nameplates are durable we build some guidelines on how you can maximize their life expectancy.
Aluminum. This material is being used in industries that have high standards such as military, aircraft, and marine since aluminum is notable for being lightweight while keeping its resilience.
To keep this material in its top shape, make sure to remove grease and dirt from it with the use of a clean rag and warm water.
In some cases that the dirt or grease seems hard to remove, you can use a mild cleanser then polish it off with a clean cloth. Using a soft cloth is important to avoid scratches from taking place. If there are any discolorations on your aluminum plates, you can get rid of these by using a mixture of two teaspoons of cream of tartar and a tablespoon of warm water, then finish off by rubbing a clean soft cloth.
Here’s a link on how to take care of your aluminum nameplate:
Stainless Steel. This material is considered one of the best choices to use in a caustic and acidic environment. This metal is ideal for a wide range of applications since it’s free from corrosion, heat resistance, and chemicals. Stainless steel is perfect for outdoor use since it is sturdy and resistant to corrosion.
You need to remove dust, grime, and grease by using warm water together with a mild cleanser to keep this material in good shape and looking as good as new. Rub off the moisture using a soft dry cloth to avoid scratches. In removing stains, you can use the same amount of water and vinegar then wipe off the stain again by using a soft dry cloth. You can also use club soda as an alternative to this solution.
Brass. This material is commonly used for decorative purposes primarily because it resembles gold.
Cleaning brass plates is the same as aluminum. Using soap and water can remove the greasy and grimy dirt from the metal surface. After removing the dirt you can wipe it off with a damp cloth and a dry cloth to start polishing.
