Terms and Conditions of Warranty 

Akzo Nobel Pty Limited ABN 59 000 119 424, “Akzo Nobel” shall not incur any liability under this Warranty in the event that any of the following circumstances occur:

i. Any damage to or deterioration of the coating system arising from causes beyond the control of Akzo Nobel including but not limited to impact, abrasion, mechanical damage, neglect, malicious damage, fire damage, pollution, abnormal weather conditions and excessively salty environments.

ii. Where the surfaces have been recoated in plant or touched up in situ for one reason or another, without the prior written agreement of Akzo Nobel.

iii. Where exposed surfaces have not been adequately sealed with a suitable sealant or mastic.

iv. Where failure is associated with exposure of the coatings to

temperatures in excess of 70 degrees Celsius, or to acid or other

hazardous sources, which are damaging to powder coatings.

v. Where failure is associated with the use of adhesive tapes, or with the use of sealants or mastics.

vi. Where the coated surfaces have not been maintained by the property owner in accordance with the supplier’s recommended care and maintenance procedures.

vii. Damage or deterioration caused by any accident or normal

wear and tear or by any default or misuse of the powder coated joinery by the property owner or any third party.

viii. Where the aluminium extrusions used in the joinery have not been powder coated by an Interpon D Approved Applicator.

ix. Where the fabricator cannot substantiate that Interpon D1000 was used. 

During the Warranty Period, any change in colour that may occur to the Interpon D1000 fi lm, will occur evenly over any compatible surface provided that such surfaces are exposed to an even degree of weathering. The long-term colour integrity of Interpon D1000 powder coatings depends on the degree of exposure to the natural elements and the colour chosen. Where the coating is subject to pollution or a salty or coastal environment, the long-term colour retention properties may be affected Care and Maintenance retention properties may be affected 

 

Care and Maintenance 

1. Powder coated Aluminium Products 

Interpon D1000 powder coatings are maintainable for an indefinite nite period under normal environmental conditions, provided that the recommended care and maintenance practices are followed.

2. Regular washing is the key to looking smart

To maintain the good looks of your powder coated aluminium products, each window and door unit needs regular washing all over – not just the parts

that are sheltered from the rain. In fact looking after your Product is very much like looking after a new car – a regular wash keeps your investment in smart condition. Washing with a soft brush and mild pH neutral detergent followed by thorough rinsing with fresh water will ensure that substances such as airborne salts, dirt and pollutants detrimental to the long term performance of the powder coated fi lm are removed. Where the atmosphere is deemed to be non-hazardous such as rural or normal urban environments, cleaning must take place at least every 12 months. In areas subject to high pollution such as industrial areas, geothermal environments or coastal environments then the cleaning frequency should be increased to every three months. In particularly hazardous locations such as beachfronts, severe marine environments or areas of high industrial pollution the period between cleaning should be reduced to monthly.

3. What to do about paint splashes

Painting around your house exterior may cause paint splashes to mar the appearance of your aluminium products.

Such splashes should be removed with fresh water immediately. Using a solvent on your product puts it at risk of damage. If paint splashes need to be removed then White Spirits may be used provided that the surfaces are thoroughly washed with a  soft brush and mild pH neutral detergent followed by thorough rinsing with fresh water immediately afterwards. It is recommended that the solvent be tested for suitability on a non-visible powder coated section prior to its use. 

WARNING: Strong and abrasive household cleaners and solvents such as those recommended for thinning various types of paints such as MEK or paint thinners are harmful to powder coating and must not be used for cleaning purposes under any circumstances. Acidic, alkaline or alcohol-based cleaning products should not be used either.
