CulourTek benchtops come with a 12 year structural warranty. Your benchtop will not be covered by warranty if the following happens.

  • Do not use products on the benchtop that stain. Example , curry, turmeric , flowers that flake dye pigments, peroxide, colours, bleach, acetone, harsh acids, nail polish, nail polish remover, texta's. permanent markers.
  • DO NOT rest hot pan or trays on the benchtop this will result in burning the top causing discolouration or yellowing. While our coating formulae is durable, it requires the respect like other surfaces to keep your tops looking clean and mark free.
  • DO NOT cut vegetables, food or objects especially products that leave a coloured residue directly on your CulourTek benchtop, use a chopping board. Repeated use of chopping on CulourTek will result in wearing down of the coating or chipping, creating staining and fine cuts that may not be visible to the eye at first sight, but over time will slowly break down the surface causing discolouration which will void warranty. The good news is CuloruTek can be resurfaced!
  • Wipe off spill marks promptly with a soft cloth and mild dishwashing detergent. Dry with a soft, dry cloth. For more persistent marks, use an indoor glass or window cleaner, or dilute a 2 table spoons of vinegar in 50ml of water. Never use abrasive cleaners even those in liquid form as they can mark or stain the surface.
  • Do not drag weighted boxes with staples or nail , screws hanging out as you can cut through the coating, good news our products can be repaired.

Matte Textured Finishes

For hard-to-clean areas special consideration is required. Use a chalk sponge along with a mild liquid detergent-and-water solution. Clean the stained area using a circular motion. Rinse and dry the surface. These surfaces may require different attention to clean the depressed areas reliant on the end user. For best results clean areas immediately.
High Gloss & Flat Satin Finish
If residual streaks and smears remain after normal cleaning, use a mild glass cleaner and then dry with a clean, non-abrasive cotton cloth. Avoid exterior glass cleaner. Another option is to remove oily residue, rinse and wipe with a hot damp cloth, allowing our gloss surface to air dry and shine.

Abrasive pads, scouring powders or cleaners may permanently dull or scratch the CulourTek surface making it exposed to staining and surface variations. Ceramics, including unglazed materials and other abrasive objects, can cause scratching and premature wear do not slide these items across surface.
