Bit Part designs products with authenticity and purity of design front of mind. As part of the design philosophy the materials and finishes have been selected for the beauty of their natural state, therefore will acquire their own history and patina over time.
The marble is naturally porous. It is inclined to oxidise and change in colour over time. Please note that natural materials such as marble, will vary in colour and veining.
The solid brass will tarnish and patina with use. The natural oils from the skin will encourage the patina.
The solid stainless steel is grade 316 (marine grade). Stainless steel (including grade 316) may tarnish with exposure to the elements.
The stainless steel blasted finish, will with use gradually acquire a slight shine to the fine edges that are exposed most frequently to the touch.
All painted surfaces have the potential to chip and wear with use. This is considered general wear and tear.
Please note that the finish specified for most products is polished. This refers to the final metal finishing. This does not mean the product is sealed or coated in any way; with the exception of the coloured paints where specified.
Use a clean soft cloth for best results. Wipe the surface thoroughly with a slightly damp cloth. Moisten with a mild soap diluted with water, then dry with a soft cloth.
Do not use products that contain abrasives or abrasive cloths and sponges.
Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar or other acids on the surfaces. Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks.
We do not recommend coating or modifying the products. Any modification to the product will void your warranty.
