Use warm water and a soft cloth or sponge.

Product and Care Information:

Terra Slate Table Tops & Base & Chairs

Construction/Materials:

The Metal Base is made of Galvanised powder coated steel

The Table Top is made of carefully selected hand cut Slate Tiles, Outdoor Quality Grout Mortar which has undergone a special process to give maximum strength.

A metal Reinforcement Structure and a combination of Light Weight Composite Material make these tables strong but light.

The bottom of the table top is finished with a cement layer, and contains screw holes for base attachment

Maintainance:

The Table top is treated to avoid staining, while keeping a natural look. To keep the look, you may redo this treatment after a while with a natural tile impregnator such as Cadix Stain Stop Plus.

If the Powder coating of the Metal Base is scratched it is recommendable that the damaged areas are immediately covered with an outdoor quality black metal paint to avoid the start of corrosion. (A touch up kit for car paints can be used)

In the event of a tile coming loose this can simply be repositioned and fixed by using Super Glue and Outdoor quality Grey Grout mortar.
