How To Maintain Staron

With simple maintenance, Staron will remain clean.

 

Natural Stone Unlike, Staron is non-porous and homogenous throughout, making the Easy to Repair IT or ITS Restore to Original Luster.

Ordinary care

  • Wipe the surface using a smooth cloth or sponge with soapy water or a neutral detergent and allow it to dry completely.
  • Remove contaminants from the surface before they dry.
  • If using hard water, the surface could become water stained. Do not allow water to remain on the surface. Wipe clean immediately using a smooth cloth.

General contaminations

  • If coffee, tea, juice, or vinegar is spilled, wipe the surface with a smooth cloth or sponge and a neutral detergent. Wipe with a warm, wet cloth several times and allow the surface to dry.
  • If oils are spilled, wipe the surface using a smooth cloth with an ammonia-based cleanser. Wipe with a warm, wet cloth several times and dry the surface.

Notes

  • Use greater caution with bright colors options or those with high surface gloss. They tend to show scratches more easily than dark-colored products.
  • Sharp metal and knives can scratch the surface of Staron. Use a cutting board when preparing food.
  • For deep scratches or burns on the surface, please contact a Staron repair center.

Usage cautions

Staron can be damaged if mistreated or mishandled.

  • Fermented food such as Kimchi or solvents such as paint thinner could discolor the product. Please clean the surface as soon as it's contaminated.
  • Severe impact or excessive weight might damage the product.
  • Using a knife or other sharp materials on the product could damage it or result in scratching.
  • Direct contact with hot containers might cause discoloration, damage, or deformation of the product. Use hot pads or trivets when working with pots and pans.

General chemical resistance 

General chemical resistance of finishing materials has been determined by placing reagents in contact with the surface of the product for 16 hours and observing the change. The results of the tests of the various reagents are categorized into two steps listed below. However, as chemical resistance is closely related to both the type of reagent and the duration of contact, we recommend testing samples before exposing the surface to chemicals.

Step 01

Reagents listed below can be removed with a soft, wet cloth and neutral detergents, and do not affect the surface.

Acetic acid (10%), acetone, ammonia, ammonium hydroxide (5, 28%), amyl acetate, amyl alcohol, ballpoint pen, benzene, bleach, blood, body conditioner, carbon disulfide, carbon tetrachloride, citric acid, xylene, uric acid, calcium thiocyanate, cigarette (nicotine, tar), coffee, edible oil, cottonseed oil, copper ammonia, dishwasher detergents, ethanol, pencil lead, ethyl acetate, ether, formaldehyde, gasoline, grape juice, marker pen, lipstick, nail polish , hexane, hair dye, kitchen detergent, hydrochloric acid (20, 30, 37%), hydrogen peroxide, iodine, ketchup, lemon juice, methanol, methyl ethyl ketone, methyl orange (1%), methyl red, mustard sauce, naphthalene , olive oil, perchloric acid, shoe polish, sodium sulfite, soy sauce, green tea, toluene, urea (6%), grape vinegar, wine, zinc chloride, watercolor, tomato juice, sulfuric acid (25,33, 60%), sugar, sodium hydroxide (5, 10, 25, 40%)

Step 02

Reagents listed below require sanding for complete removal. Take precautions to avoid contact of these reagents often or for too long a time.

Acetic acid (90, 98%), acid pipe detergent, chlorobenzene, chloroform (100%), cresol, nitric acid (25, 30, 70%), ethyl acetate, phenol (40, 85%), hydrofluoric acid (48% ), dioxane, phosphoric acid (75, 90%), sulfuric acid (77, 96%), trichloroacetic acid, glacial acetic acid, furfural, methylene chloride products (paint remover, brush cleaner, metal scavenger)
