***THIS CONCLUDES 3G’S LIMITED WARRANTY***
When cleaning is needed, NEVER use harsh cleaners, acids, steel wool or abrasive pads that can etch and destroy the aluminum anodized coatings or cause stainless to corrode. Best and safest cleaners are warm water with mild dish washing detergent or automotive car care soaps that have spot free rinse. Always rinse thoroughly with clean fresh water when done. Since the InvisARail® is meant to be transparent, it is also designed to have a dull flat finish to be non-reflective. Therefore, no polishing is expected and would be unnecessary additional work that’s counterproductive.
If you are near salt water areas, the accumulation of salt should be cleaned off regularly to extend the life of the product. The cleaning frequency will be based on the proximity of the rail to the salt water and the amounts of salt that accumulates over time.
If working with any metal that rust (Iron rails, grinding or shavings) nearby, keep it away from the rail for it could cause staining that is hard to remove if left for a long period of time.
