Basic stains: Clean with mild detergents or general purpose cleaners
Periodically go over entire surface with wet scotch pad to maintain a uniform appearance
The innate feature of Hanex gives it excellent heat resistant properties compared to other surfacing materials in the market. However, to prevent any damages from heat, never place hot items directly on Hanex. Always use trivets with rubber feet when placing hot items on the worktop. Remember, placing hot pans or heat-generating appliances directly on Hanex may cause damages to your worktop. Avoid direct and indirect heat with temperatures over 80° C (170° F).
Avoid strong chemicals that can cause damages to your surface such as oven cleaners, acetone, paint removers and others. If exposed, promptly flush with water. Remember, prolonged contact with harsh chemicals can cause serious damage to your worktop.
6 Simple Steps to Avoid Damage to your Solid Surface
Avoid cutting directly on Hanex, use a cutting board
Never place hot pans directly on the worktop. Even though Hanex can withstand temperatures up to 350° F, prolonged or extreme heat could cause permanent damage.
Strong acids, such as those found in drain cleaners should be flushed with water immediately. Some of these items, when left on surfaces may cause whitening, which can be difficult to remove.
To remove persistent stains, cigarette burns or scratches: Scrub with an abrasive cleanser and green Scotch Brite pad.
Deep scratches can be removed by carefully sanding lightly with 120 grit sandpaper, followed by 220 grit and finishing with 320 grit sandpaper. Complete by rubbing the surface with a wet, green Scotch pad in a circular motion to restore the finish. Note: different methods can be used depending on the finish.
For deep scratches and/or other damages which may require expert repair, please contact your Authorised Hanex Fabricator.
