Acralyte is a high end furniture finish. Proper care and maintenance will avoid problems and add years of outstanding service to the life of the product.
Acralyte offers an unmatched level of scratch resistance in the furniture industry. Nevertheless, dinnerware with abrasive undersides and other coarse items used in service can still cause the finish to scratch or become hazy. This type of damage is typically caused by dinnerware that was purchased with an unpolished or unsmoothed bottom. DO NOT use abrasive dinnerware or other coarse items in service.
Acralyte will withstand hot temperatures. However, dishes placed directly on the table at over 190ºF can leave rings in the finish. DO NOT place items over 190ºF directly on the table.
Acralyte is very chemical resistant. This finish is designed to withstand all household and industrial strength furniture cleaners. Please contact the factory or a factory representative if you are unsure as to how Acralyte will hold up to specific cleaners or chemicals.
These tables are designed and manufactured for indoor use only. DO NOT use these tables outdoors or in an area that is not climate controlled and protected from weather elements.
Care and maintenance instructions apply to high gloss, satin and matte – Acralyte® finishes.
Daily Procedures: Clean regularly with soap and water using a non-abrasive cloth rag or towel. If soap and water appear to streak, use Windex, 409 or any other glass cleaner to remove the streaks.
Table cleaning wipes designed to be used in restaurants can be used as an alternative to soap and water. These products will not affect the Acralyte finish.
Periodic Procedures: Periodically (every 2-4 weeks as needed), add ammonia or a strong degreasing solution (found at most hardware stores) to water to remove any grease buildup on the table. After all grease residue is removed, wash with soap and water then spray with glass cleaner to remove any streaks. This makes clean up after meals much easier, quicker, and cleaner. As grease builds up, it becomes harder to clean the tabletop.
