Cleaning Tips – High Polish and Highlight Polish Finishes

MakeItMetal is real metal and should be treated as such. As metal ages it naturally develops its own look. To avoid damaging the metal finish and to protect the natural beauty, please follow the Care and Cleaning Instructions carefully.

Without a protective coating these finishes will oxidize and age naturally. Harsh cleaners will damage the finish, this includes Vim and any abrasive cleaners. Dry all surfaces after each use to avoid water spots. 

Water spots and unwanted patina? Don’t worry! They may be removed by applying a small amount of non-abrasive metal polish with a soft microfiber cloth or gently with extra fine steel wood then buff with a soft cloth.


Panel Program

Panel Program

One of the biggest benefits to using MakeItMetal Panels is that there’s no special equipment required to cut/finish. MIM Panels use a real metal veneer coating on top of MDF (fire-rated or non-fire-rated). This allows the end user to cut the panels using standard woodworking tools. Colour-match edge-banding is a great option to finish panels and allows for the ultimate in flexibility of installation, and versatility of design.
