Staron Use & Care <Back to Staron
1. PREVENTING DAMAGE
HEAT DAMAGE: Staron® Solid Surfaces have excellent heat resistant properties compared with other ordinary countertops. However, placing hot pans, as well as some heat-generating appliances such as frying pans or pots, can damage the surface. Always use a hot pad or a trivet with rubber feet to protect Staron. Avoid subjecting Staron® Solid Surfaces to temperatures over 80°C (170°F). OTHER DAMAGE: Avoid exposing Staron® Solid Surfaces to strong chemicals such as paint removers and oven cleaners. Surfaces exposed to these chemicals should be promptly flushed with water. Prolonged contact will cause spots that may require extensive repairs.
Do not cut directly on a Staron® Solid Surfaces surface; always use a cutting board.
Run cold water when pouring boiling water into sinks.
Remove nail polish with a non-acetone-based nail polish remover and flush with water.
NOTE: Any of the above can affect the surface finish and colour. Dark colours may require more maintenance. Staron solid composi-tion makes it easy to maintain because it is homogenous. The surface can be restored to its original sheen by removing stains and scratches with a detergent. Periodic maintenance is recommended to retain surface quality and appearance.
2. CLEANING SURFACES, SINK & BOWL
TO REMOVE SEVERE AND DIFFICULT STAINS:
DULL FINISH: Use an abrasive cleanser and a green Scotch-Brite (registered trademark of the 3M company) pad. Rub in a circular motion.
SEMI-GLOSS FINISH: Use mild abrasive cream such as Cif, diluted with bleach and a white Scotch-Brite pad. Rub in a circular motion.
HIGH-GLOSS FINISH: Follow the procedure for semi-gloss, but use a sponge instead of a Scotch-Brite pad, or use a white polishing compound in a circular motion.
3. DISINFECTING SURFACES AND SINK & BOWL
4. REMOVING CUTS AND SCRATCHES
DULL FINISH: Sand with 180 grit (120 micron) or 220 grit (60 micron) fine sandpaper until the cut and scratch is removed. Restore finish with soap, water and a green Scotch-Brite® Pad and match the finish of the adjacent surface.
SEMI-GLOSS FINISH: Sand with 400 grit (30 micron) sandpaper, and restore finish with a nonabrasive cleanser and a white Scotch-Brite® pad.
HIGH-GLOSS FINISH: Sand with 400 grit (30 micron) or 600 grit (20 micron) sandpaper, and buff with a polishing com pound and a low-speed (1500-2000 rpm) polisher using a wool pad. Finish with wax.
All of the above sanding and polishing should be done in a circular motion.
