ABS plastic

ABS can be cleaned with neutral, slightly alkaline or slightly acid detergents diluted in hot water (up to 70°C). Suitable detergents that must be diluted to 2% are Ajax, Ariel, Dato, Dato, Henko, Vernel (just to name a few). Very greasy surfaces can be cleaned with non-aromatic gasoline solutions such as petroleum ether, ligroin and ethanol. The parts must not be exposed to the detergent for more than 5 minutes. Formaldehyde, chloramine and other products from specialist companies may be used for disinfection.

Not to be used: products that can scratch the surface such as VIM and ATA. Also avoid contact with concentrated acids, both mineral and organic. Important warning to avoid damage to the material: respect the concentrations indicated by the manufacturer.

Stainless steel

Stainless steel is easy to clean. Its smooth, pore-free surface makes it difficult for bacteria and other microorganisms to adhere and survive. But stainless steel, like all materials, requires some care, especially to remove fingerprints from surfaces. In most cases, a soft cloth, a microfiber cloth or a sponge soaked in soapy water will yield excellent results. For more resistant dirt, such as grease, simply use sprays and pastes specially developed for stainless steel. To prevent new stains there are polishing pastes that leave a layer of microscopic but resistant wax that makes it particularly easy to clean metal surfaces; an excellent product is Kymax Kronnix 27, marketed by ZEP Italy.

Very important: always rinse with water after using any product, and dry thoroughly.

Do not use abrasives that leave scratches, such as steel wool pads. Disinfectants based on bleach, salt or other chloride-containing detergents can also damage stainless steel.

Anodized aluminium

The surface created by anodising is very robust and hardly wears out. Corrosion, which is normally possible with aluminium, is almost completely prevented by anodising, making anodised aluminium a very environmentally friendly, modern and innovative form of surface finishing. Aluminium cleaner should be used for cleaning anodised aluminium. The material will not be damaged. Aluminium is also a soft metal. This means that the metal can always be lightly rubbed when treated with an aluminium cleaner. Dirt residues can be easily removed with a soft cloth, some water and an aluminum cleaner.

Do not use abrasives that leave scratches, such as steel wool pads.
