All products with this finish are treated with a special wax imparting subtle matt richness to the metal. This gives excellent protection where products are fitted internally and maintained. Sometimes because of temperature changes your product might have a slight white bloom. We recommend you polish it with a soft cloth, this will restore the finish. However, mild steel or malleable iron, which are the two materials we forge, when fitted in damp bathrooms or wet properties, have the potential to exhibit surface rust. In these situations we recommend an application of maintenance wax. Please make sure plaster is fully dry before fitting ironmongery.
The maintenance wax will restore the finish and afford protection. If surface rust does occur rub with wire wool and apply maintenance wax with a rag or brush. Inevitably when two areas of metal come into contact with each other an abrasive action is enacted, and sooner or later the wax surfaces are lost by the constant rubbing action. This is unavoidable during the operational activity of the article, so where obvious abrasive areas of moving parts are visible an occasional light oiling is recommended.
