Acrylic consists of 75 per cent natural minerals. These are fused with acrylic at high temperatures and under extreme pressure. The result is a robust material that is ideal for worktops and kitchen panels.
To preserve the beauty of acrylic panels in your kitchen over a long period, please observe the following instructions:
- To clean your splashback, all you need is a damp cloth and possibly a mild cleaning agent. You should refrain from using strongly acidic cleaners to avoid damaging the surface.
- We recommend removing any greasy liquid splashes and food residues from the splashback as soon as possible. This will help to avoid unattractive shadows.
- This material is not impact, scratch and cut resistant – however, it can be refurbished if scratched or stressed.
Due to their surface texture, acrylic kitchen splashbacks are particularly easy to clean. For daily cleaning, a household cloth and a little water are sufficient. If necessary, you can also use soapy water. Avoid strongly alkaline or abrasive products.
Stubborn deposits and stains
Sinks and decorative surfaces made of acrylic are best cleaned with the specially developed cleaning agent clean + polish by Lechner. You can buy this as a practical care kit from specialist kitchen retailers. The set consists of the cleaning agent (1 tin), a special sponge and two sheets of 600-grit sandpaper.
Application is very simple:
- Moisten the enclosed sponge with the cleaning agent.
- Clean the affected area in circular movements and without pressure.
- Afterwards, wipe the surface down with a damp sponge cloth and then wipe it dry.
Alternatively, household scouring agents can be used.
Important: When cleaning your acrylic splashback, avoid strongly alkaline and acidic agents!
