Care + Maintenance for the Nine-0 Collection

The Nine-0 Collection features frames in brushed or polished recycled aluminum, with seats and backs in soft, dark gray polyurethane.

Wipe the polyurethane seats with a damp cloth.

Clean brushed aluminum chairs with soap and water, and dry with a soft cloth. You can also use Windex®, Formula 409® or similar spray cleaner, with or without bleach followed by a lint free towel. Hydrogen peroxide-based cleaners may also be used, dilution level 1:10. Wash any film or residue with hot water. Do not use Stainless Steel cleaner on any aluminum furniture. For Heavy-duty dirt or oil use a very hot water and strong soap, followed by LIGHT scrubbing in the direction of the aluminum grain with a soft bristled brush or damp Scotchbrite® pad.

There is no coating on Emeco’s hand polished chairs and they will begin to patina upon use. Polished aluminum is non-corrosive and does not tarnish. To keep your polished chairs shining brightly use an ordinary car wax.
For daily cleaning, use Windex® or similar spray cleaner, followed by a soft, lint free towel. Wash any film or residue with hot water. Do not use abrasive cleansers, pads or brushed on hand polished aluminum.
