MATERIALS & MAINTENANCE

Metals

Metals are characterized by their mechanical robustness and functional versatility. These materials exhibit significant conductivity for both heat and electricity. They possess high densities and are predominantly solid under standard ambient temperatures .

Given their natural composition, these materials may exhibit inherent variations in color, shape, texture, and size.

Powder - Coated

black steel

Powder Coating consists in a homogeneous mixture of mineral charges and pigments in the form of fine particles that adhere to the surface to be painted through static charge.

Mustard Steel

RAL 059

Maroon steel

RAL 8004

OYSTER WHITE​ STEEL

RAL 1013

Off White STEEL

RAL 9001

Other metals

Blued STEEL

A thermal treatment used to reduce the effects of corrosion or as a decorative element. The surface of the steel takes on a black color depending on its previous finish.

Porcelainized Steel

It is the application of a vitreous enamel to a steel surface, creating a smooth and resistant surface. This finish is achieved at high temperatures.

Brass

An alloy of copper and zinc characterized by its luster, coloration, and durability.

Copper

A transition metal known for its warm tone. It is one of the most conductive materials for electricity. It is malleable and ductile.

Aluminum

A lightweight and durable metal known for its brightness and white-silver hue. It can be manufactured using various processes to achieve different finishes and textures.

Black Anodized Aluminum

Electrochemical process by which the material is subjected to create a protective layer on the surface.

Care and maintenance

Powder – Coated Metal

  • To clean, use a microfiber cloth with a neutral solution of warm water and mild soap. Subsequently, remove all moisture with a dry microfiber cloth.
  • For tough spots, clean using a soft-bristled brush.
  • DO NOT use fibers, as they may remove or scratch the material’s finish.
  • DO NOT use alkaline cleaners, as they may cause discoloration and/or stains on the material.
  • DO NOT use cleaning products containing acids such as vinegar, ammonia, or bathroom cleaners, as they deteriorate and alter the appearance of the material.
  • DO NOT use oil-based products like furniture polish or cleaners, as they may change the material’s finish, creating permanent stains on the surface.
  • DO NOT use outdoors, constant exposure to sunlight and rain can cause changes and deteriorate the material’s finish.

Blued and Porcelainized Steel

  • It is the application of a vitreous enamel to a steel surface, creating a smooth and resistant surface. This finish is achieved at high temperatures.

  • To clean, use a dry microfiber cloth.

  • Immediately dry any traces of liquids or moisture, as this can cause the material to deteriorate and oxidize.

  • For tough spots, clean using a soft-bristled brush.

  • For better material care, we recommend applying WD40 Anti-Corrosion Oil every 6 months.

  • DO NOT use water directly for cleaning; if necessary, immediately dry any moisture.

  • DO NOT use fibers, sponges, sandpaper, or harsh products, as these may permanently remove and scratch the material’s finish.

  • DO NOT use alkaline cleaners, as they may cause discoloration and/or stains on the material.

  • DO NOT use cleaning products containing acids such as vinegar, ammonia, or bathroom cleaners, as they deteriorate and alter the appearance of the material.

  • DO NOT use outdoors, constant exposure to sunlight and rain can cause changes and deteriorate the material’s finish.

  • For installation in a humid environment with exposure to salinity, please contact the brand to consider extra protection for the material.

Brass, copper and aluminum metals

  • To clean, use a microfiber cloth with a neutral solution of warm water and mild soap. Subsequently, remove all moisture with a dry microfiber cloth.
  • Immediately dry any traces of liquids or moisture, as this can cause the material to deteriorate and oxidize.
  • DO NOT use fibers, sponges, sandpaper, or harsh products, as these may permanently remove and scratch the material’s finish.
  • DO NOT use alkaline cleaners, as they may cause discoloration and/or stains on the material.
  • DO NOT use cleaning products containing acids such as vinegar, ammonia, or bathroom cleaners, as they deteriorate and alter the appearance of the material.
  • DO NOT use outdoors, constant exposure to sunlight and rain can cause changes and deteriorate the material’s finish.

INSTALLATION PRECAUTIONS

Lighting products

  • When performing any electrical installation, switch off the main electrical switch.
  • It is recommended that the installation be carried out by 2 people.
  • Handle the product and materials with care. They can break, chip, crack, or shatter easily.
  • If any component is damaged during the installation process, contact us for additional support regarding replacement parts.
  • Any abnormalities in the luminaire components, please contact the brand for additional support.
  • For wall-mounted luminaires, ensure correct leveling of the mounting bracket for proper alignment of the product.
  • DO NOT use adhesives, as these products may cause discoloration of the material and/or permanent changes in the finish appearance.
  • Remove the lamp protection only at the end of the installation, as friction with other materials may cause scratches on the piece’s finish and dents in the material.
