BETACRYL® and stains.
BETACRYL® is a non-porous material and therefore does not absorb any liquid that may come in contact with: the stain may be only superficial.
In case of easy stains, treat the surface with a cloth, water and normal household detergent.

- Avoid contact with caustic chemicals, solvents, solutions of methyl chloride, acetone and liquid products for ovens and hobs cleaning. Just in case it occurs, quickly rinse the surface with soap and water and dry it with a soft cloth.
BETACRYL® and high temperatures.
BETACRYL® resists to high temperatures better than other coating materials, however, to place hot pots directly on the surface may slightly damage it. Therefore, we recommend to always use a trivet.
If you need to pour boiling liquids directly into the sink bowls, do open cold-water tap. Furthermore, mind to use appropriate size pots on hob burners and place them always at the centre. Should the pot come out of the hob, the surrounding surface may lose his glossy aspect.
