Special Note for Toilet Partition Hardware

Although stainless steel is very resistant to rust, there are certain conditions where this can happendepending on various factors listed below:

  • Cleansers containing Chloride or Muriatic Acid (hydrochloric acid).
  • Concentrated soap residue where chemical additives to soap may cause discoloration andpotentially dry out and result in a rusting appearance.
  • Environments where water has high iron content or where contact with iron occurs (such assteel wool, machining chips or iron residue or dust from installation or cleaning of other steelproducts) can leave a rusty residue.
  • Presence of salt containing chlorides.

Remove rust discoloration or corrosion as soon as possible to prevent permanent discolorationand pitting of the surface. Regular cleaning can restore the original condition in most cases withproper maintenance and cleaning. DAILY cleaning should prevent discoloration (rusting andrusting appearance) and corrosion in high moisture environments such as showers and showercompartments.

Materials and Tools Required:

  • Mid abrasive cleaner such as Bar Keepers Friend (available at Home Improvement or DiscountStores).
  • Soft Sponge and/or 3M Scotch Brite pad #7447 or equivalent.

Follow the Steps Below During Daily Cleaning:

  • Apply a generous amount on the affected areas and rub with a damp sponge in the direction ofthe grain. NOTE: Avoid using caustic cleaners that contain chlorides as the abrasive nature ofthese products will further damage the steel’s chromium film.
  • Rinse with clear water and gently towel dry
  • Repeat cleaning process daily or more often depending on severity of rusting.

For Matte Black powder coated stainless steel accessories:

  • Use a soft cloth to remove dust.
  • Use a highly diluted mild soap in a soft water-based solution applied to a soft cloth to gentlyclean. Then, rinse with soft water and dry with another soft towel.
