Over time with exposure to the elements, Powder Coatings may show signs of weathering such as loss of gloss , chalking and slight colour change. A simple regular clean will minimize the effects of weathering and will remove dirt, grime and other build up detrimental to all powder coatings. Sheltered areas can be more at risk of coating degradation than exposed areas. This is because wind-blown salt and other pollutants may adhere to the surface and will not be cleaned away with rainfall. these areas should be inspected and cleaned if necessary on a more regular basis. Cleaning should be carried out on a 6 monthly basis but in more extreme coastal environments it should be cleaned every 3 months as per Interpon care and maintenance brochure.
