Most recent The Homeowner’s Guide to Care and Maintenance for your ROHL Finish

December 24, 2013 · Filed Under Flitz Polish, Simichrome 

Quite often, we are asked about polishes we might recommend for different metal finishes for Rohl faucets & sinks and where to buy them.  We have not done a post on this subject for nearly 3 years.  Rohl currently recommends different polishes as of this post date of 12/24/2013.   Below is an excerpt of their recommendations.

POLISHED CHROME — Time-tested Polished Chrome is
the hardiest of all our finishes. Rubbing and polishing will
rejuvenate the finish. Recommended cleaning agents
include Flitz Polish, Gagnon’s SX and Simichrome.
POLISHED NICKEL — Use Gagnon’s SX or Simichrome to
polish and protect this finish. We suggest periodically using
Flitz Wax or Bruno’s Wax to avoid spotting.
INCA BRASS — Use Gagnon’s SX to polish and protect the
finish. We do not recommend the use of any other polish or
wax on this finish.
SATIN NICKEL — This finish is achieved through a
meticulous process that produces an evenly worn look. Use
Gagnon’s SX to polish and protect. Apply Flitz Wax or
Bruno’s Wax to avoid spotting.
TUSCAN BRASS — Unlike any other ROHL finish, Tuscan
Brass is a living finish—it will lighten over time as it is used.
To maintain the original dark patina color longer, we suggest
a light coat of Flitz Wax or Bruno’s Wax be applied regularly.
To apply, pat the wax on and then off again with a soft cloth.
DO NOT RUB. No warranty is offered on the Tuscan Brass
finish.
ENGLISH BRONZE — Available exclusively on Perrin &
Rowe® faucets from ROHL, this finish is easily maintained
by periodically using Gagnon’s SX to clean and Flitz Wax to
protect the finish.
OLD IRON— This unique finish is protected by a clear coat
which is easily rejuvenated with Gagnon’s SX polish. We also
suggest using Flitz Wax or Bruno’s Wax regularly to avoid
spotting.
OUTSIDE USE — ROHL products are suitable for
outside use. However, due to the harsh environment of sun,
wind, rain and snow, we do not offer a
warranty for these types of installations. Polished Chrome is
the best finish for this type of environment
as it is the hardest and hardiest of the finishes. A weekly
shower of fresh water is recommended and a spray
coating of Carnauba wax will help preserve the finish.
If minerals or salt build up on the finish, use a 50/50
solution of vinegar and water and a medium to stiff brush
to knock off the hard deposits. In freezing weather, shut off
the water and remove the cartridges and drain the valve. If
possible, store in a dry enclosed area.
Fireclay sinks from ROHL are constructed with
a durable glaze for years of beautiful
performance. On the occasion that a metal pot
or pan may leave a mark on the surface of the
sink, we recommend Astonish Cleaner available
from your local ROHL dealer. A mild abrasive

cleaner like Bon Ami® is also acceptable.

Unable to find Bruno’s Wax for Rohl’s Tuscan Brass Faucet

August 7, 2011 · Filed Under Flitz Polish 

Recently we received the following comment in our e-mail box.

“I purchased Rohl’s Tuscan Brass kitchen faucet and received a sample of Bruno’s Faucet Wax which I have been using. However, I have been unable to find it in any stores; any suggestions?”

We did a little research into this. Bruno’s Faucet Wax is hard to find. It may be a private labeled product. Because of the close wording of the product name  we contacted theFlitz tech rep. It is not made by Flitz, but if you do go to the Rohl’s Finishes part of their website besides Bruno’s they do recommend Flitz Faucet Wax +.
