SCRC Reinforced Composite Cleaning

These bathroom stalls can easily be power washed to remove dirt and stains. You can also remove any formed dirt using a soft cloth. Always make sure that restroom partitions in shower or hose-down areas are in well ventilated areas to allow for extra humidity to dry.

For stalls damaged by graffiti, specialized graffiti removers can safely be used on anti-graffiti ( SCRC ) coatings. Applying self-cleaning wax routinely will make the graffiti cleaning easier. These products are gentle and normally don’t need stripping.

NOTE: Don’t clean with harsh cleaners that have abrasives, acids, or alkalis, they’ll etch, discolor or damage the surface.

GRAFFITI CLEANING

To properly remove damage caused by graffiti, use a high quality concentrated D-limonene based solvent ( such as Bobrick Graffiti Remover ) applied with a soft cloth. This works to remove markings from:

  • Permanent Marker
  • Acrylic
  • Enamel Spray Paints
  • Markers ( containing Xylene )
  • Metallic Markers
  • Laundry Pens
  • Paint Pens
  • For tough stains apply cleaner using nylon scrub pad.

A word of caution: Many solvents are very flammable, so make sure to keep away from sparks and open flames.

SCRATCH REMOVAL

SCRC is resistant to scratches, however sharp objects can still cause damage. If this happens, you can sand the area or fill the scratch with a matching color crayon.

CLEANING BURN MARKS OR GOUGES

Burn marks and more severe gouges may seem like they can’t be fixed, but they can be! Simply use an electric sander with a coarse 80-grit sandpaper on the affected area. Re-sand the area using a medium 180-grit sandpaper. Then to blend the color into the surrounding area, wet-sand the area using a fine 2000-grit wet/dry sandpaper to complete the process
