Limitations of Aluzinc
- Wear clean gloves and if you need to walk on the finished Aluzinc surface make sure that safety shoes are also clean – free from impregnated dirt and with no stone fragments embedded in the soles.
- Quickly clear away drill shavings, debris and other waste generated during installation: Nails, screws, bolts, staples and other fastenings may eventually have an adverse effect on the surface appearance of the sheet if they are left behind on site.
- For cleaning, we advise you to use soap with a pH < 10 and then rinse the impregnated surface with water. It is also possible to clean an Aluzinc surface
using a high-pressure cleaner. It is highly inadvisable to rub the sheet with hard materials such as sandpaper or a metal brush!
- It is recommended that Aluzinc sheets should not be used in direct contact with copper or lead.
- Highly humid environments such as ports or seaside areas (continual spraying with fresh or salt water, constant corrosive fumes or impregnated wood) are not recommended, they represent a major corrosion risk for the sheets.
- The same applies for alkaline environments, since they are likely to adversely affect the coating.
- The use of Aluzinc is not recommended in buildings for housing livestock, because of the ammonia fumes given off when in direct contact with animal faeces.
