  • Discoloration, flaking, or corrosion resulting from chemical exposure.

  • Alterations or modifications to the finish or part.

  • Scrub Packing and or wear marks on the finish that may occur during shipping.

3. Stainless Steel Characteristics: Stainless steel is renowned for its corrosion resistance. However, exposure to certain environmental elements can lead to oxidation, which may give the material a hazy or slightly brown appearance requiring polishing and or cleaning to bring back to an acceptable state.

4. Maintenance and Care:

  • Routine Cleaning: Every few weeks, remove dirt and air pollutants that can pit the surface by rinsing with a hose.

  • Seasonal Protection: Once per season, apply a good polish or ceramic coating to help prevent rust and staining. A light application of car wax is also beneficial.

  • Restorative Care: For signs of rust, scratches, scuffs, or staining, a metal polish can be effective. For optimal results, adhere to the specific product label's instructions.

5. Special Considerations: Stainless steel shocks used near the ocean, chlorinated water sources, or densely urban areas with higher concentrations of air pollutants may demand more frequent maintenance to prolong their lifespan and preserve their appearance.
