CASE STUDY 22 - Washing and Refurbishing Oxidized Aluminum Storefront Window Frames and Aluminum Mullions

Condition:  During construction the aluminum storefront window frames, aluminum sliding doors and aluminum mullions on this Venice Beach, CA condominium were damaged, marred and blemished by stucco overspray. The stucco residue stained, acid etched and oxidized the aluminum. The architect and owner wanted the stucco stains, debris and residue removed and the aluminum cleaned and repaired of aluminum surface damage corrosion, etching and contamination. We were asked how to clean, refurbish and repair the damaged aluminum finishes and extrusions.

The Solution:  A York Property Company Technical Advisor assisted the architect with the aluminum stucco damage analysis and the correct specification to remove the stucco from the aluminum surfaces. To get the stucco off of the aluminum finishes we implemented our aluminum stucco remover program which enabled the aluminum to be clean, refurbished and repaired of the staining, stucco residue, corrosion, etching and oxidation.

Commercial and industrial aluminum window frames, aluminum cladding, corrugated siding panels, window sills and flashing degrade and deteriorate due to age; airborne & waterborne contaminants, sunlight & u.v. ray deterioration; iron oxide rust deposits; damaging chemical cleaning procedures; biological & pollution stains; dirty window cleaning runoff and leeching & bleeding silicone caulking film.

Interior and exterior aluminum finishes are contaminated, discolored, tarnished and damaged by lime residue, calcium scale & mineral deposit staining; algae, mold & mildew stains; efflorescence salt spray, salt air corrosion & salt water damage; acid rain contamination and pollutants. Aluminum is also adversely affected when subjected to wind driven debris; wear & tear; damp conditions; fog, moisture, heat and humidity weathering; aluminum ghosting shadows, chemical burning, neglect and a lack of aluminum cleaning and aluminum preventive maintenance washing. All of these damaging, corrosive, acidic and caustic environmental contaminants negatively affect aluminum oxidation resistance, aluminum corrosion protection, aluminum surface preservation and the performance of aluminum cladding, aluminum window frames, aluminum siding and aluminum panel surface finishes.
