B)    B) ANTI-CORROSIVE MAINTENANCE

It is recommended to paint outdoor elements of the sign every 3 to 5 years, as anti-corrosive protection. Before painting, outside construction elements should be cleaned of dust and grease by solvent made of water and detergent for dishes washing, then rinse with clean water and leave to dry. Afterwards, prime with oil paint in the same or similar shade as the previous. When painting, protect other elements of painting over with paper tape. Remove the tape immediately after painting (do not wait for the paint to dry completely).

If the corrosion penetrated somewhere, abrade and prime with oil primer, before final painting.

If the corrosion appears on the sign, consult the manufacturer.
