Metal cladding cleaning

Exceptional results from a specialist cleaning team

Our metal cladding restoration products have been designed specifically for commercial and industrial buildings, and will work on 

  • powder coated
  • anodised aluminium
  • stainless steel
  • uPVC/GRP

We apply all our products by hand to enable us to work without disturbing residents or tenants with noisy hand tools. Our products and methods enable us to 

  • remove dried out polymers
  • restore the finish back to near original
  • create a near new effect without reducing the coating thickness on substrates. 

The products we use contain preservatives, carnauba waxes, silicons and white buffing agents, so they are non-abrasive with a neutral PH and leave a protective layer.

Anodised Aluminium

Aluminium is a light weight construction material that has allowed designers to shape and colour building projects since the 1950’s and 1960’s. Although Aluminium does not rust, air pollutants, environmental exposure and surface contaminants cause aluminum cladding to become discoloured and develop pitting on its surface.

Anodised finishes are usually silver, bronze, gold or black and were used in the 1960’s to 1970’s. Since this time the colour choice has expanded as the anodising process has improved and anodised aluminium cladding is now used on high grade HQ buildings

Powder Coated Aluminium

Scratched or pitted aluminum corrodes from chemical reactions, so it pays to restore damaged aluminum promptly. See Brilliance systems restoratively clean damaged aluminium surfaces removing corrosion to preserve aluminum’s structural integrity and aesthetic appeal.

Used since the 1980’s PPC finishes can be designed to individual specification and produced in any metallic or flat colour. 

Aluminium Cladding substrates can be easily damaged by inexperienced contractors using the incorrect cleaning products and methods and this damage may not become evident for 6 to 12 months. With See Brilliance, cleaning your aluminium cladding you’ll get exceptional results. We’ll guarantee you exceptional results, removing carbon staining, sealant leeching, airborne pollutants, grease and grime.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is very soft and porous and when it ages the surface can look very dull and light rust patches can develop. However some high grade stainless steel finishes have a lacquered coating which prevents this, unfortunately most stainless steel cladding does not.

By understanding how to clean and restore your stainless steel professionally, your stainless steel will not be damaged. Unfortunately damage caused by inexperienced contractors who use the wrong cleaning products and methods may not be apparent for 6 – 12 months. Make sure this doesn't happen to you by using our expert, skilled operatives.

UPVC/GRP

Many modern buildings incorporate uPVC - particularly around the windows. But even uPVC can get dull and dirty looking. When uPVC cladding turns dull, starts to tarnish or black marks appear, these problems are usually caused by exposure to UV light and the environmental conditions around the building or structure.

See Brilliance have a specialised technique and approved chemicals to restore the appearance of uPVC giving a near new look without use of any abrasive products, while protecting against future problems.
