Due to natural conditions such as; ultra violet sunlight, heat, water (chlorine, bore), chemical sprays and general weathering, the finish on a bronze plaque will begin to breakdown and gradually patina over time (acquiring a greenish hue). However, care and maintenance can lengthen the protective nature of our high quality Dulux Protective Coating.
We recommend you:
If more thorough cleaning is required:
During cleaning NEVER USE solvents or harsh chemicals, as they will damage the protective coating applied during the manufacturing process. This includes bronze/metal cleaners, as they are for cleaning directly onto the metal surface, our plaques have a protective coating, therefore if applied the protective coating may be damaged.
AVOID using any abrasive materials such as steel wool or sandpaper or scrubbing with a brush when caring for bronze plaques.
The cleaning and maintenance of a plaque will extend the quality of the our Dulux Protective Coating, however over an extended period of time (years), it will not restore the plaque back to it's original finish, all bronze plaques will gradually patina over time. Some people prefer the natural patina process to take place. However, if it is desired that the plaque look 'like new' maybe a professional restoration should be considered.
The best way to restore an older bronze plaque to 'like new' condition is to engage our services (via your cemetery trust or through our company directly) for a full refurbish.
