Salt Air Environment: Stainless Steel Hardware
All POLYWOOD hardware is 18-8 stainless steel with an AlloChrome 3200+ finish and cosmetic coating. While our hardware has a high level of corrosive resistance, it can show signs of corrosion in salt air environments. Here are a few tips to help keep your hardware looking as good as new:
- Mix mild dish soap and warm water in a bucket.
- Apply soap mixture to hardware with a soft bristle brush, scrubbing the corroding areas of the hardware.
- Rinse thoroughly.
Salt Air Tips:
If you're looking to go the extra mile to protect hardware with signs of corrosion, you can apply a color-appropriate appliance touch up paint (available at your local hardware store).
