Cleaning and maintenance of anodised items

Anodised surfaces are easier to maintain than straight polished aluminium. Quality anodised layers maintain colour, shine and durability for years under normal conditions. 

Maintaining an anodised layer is easy. Here are some recommendations to assist in maintaining a high presentation component.


  • Use soapy water to wash.

  • Finish with a light wipe down with WD40 or Lanox.

  • Warm/Hot Water will not effect the anodising.

Not Recommended:

  • Use of steel wool, scotch bright or any abrasive materials

  • Use of cleaners that contain caustic soda, sodium hydroxide or a corrosive base.

  • Very high pressure water cleaning.

  • Sand or soda blasting.
