The Surface of ALUSONG panel is lacquered, anodized or laminated with a transform protective film. The surface are protected by a film during transport storage and processing. The following instruction must be noted.
Unpack and pack
Unpack and pack wooden crates in a clean place .
Remove dusts and chips from ALUSONG panel and packing paper. The hard particles, such as sand and cutting chips, caught between panels will cause a dent on the panel.
Do not handle ALUSONG panel on a floor..
Handle ALUSONG panel carefully by two persons facing the effective surface upward, to avoid possible rubbing of panel surface during picking up and piling down panels.
Individual panels must be lifted off the pallet by two people holding all four corners and not drawn over each other. Carry the panels vertically.
Lay the packed the panel horizontally and do not put heavy cargoes on it.
Mark clearly “Handle with Care”, “keep Dry”, “No Hooks” and “This Side Up” on the packing.
Treat pallets carefully during transport and moisture damages must be reported immediately and confirmed by the forwarder.
It is possible that the protective film of ALUSONG panel will be invalid with direct sunlight and moisture.
Especially in Reversible Series in which protective film are applied on both sides of the panel, make sure that each film is peeled off from front and back, although the film is translucent (half-transparent) and it may be slightly hard to notice it.
Storage exceeding 6 months should be avoided. Severe temperature fluctuations and exposure to direct sunlight reduce the long-term durability. In this case the protective film may become very difficult to remove.
Do not mark the protective film with inks (markers), tapes or labels. They may penetrate the film and affect the lacquered surface.
Should the protective film partially come off during processing or after assembly, dirtied edges can occur in the course of time, which may be difficult to remove.
Remove the protective film as soon as possible after assembly. Protective film that remains on the panels for an extended period of exterior exposure may be very difficult to remove.
Store ALUSONG panel against rain and splash penetration of moisture, condensation. It should always be stored in a cool, dry and temperature area.
Pile the same size of panels on strong pallets. Do not pile up different sizes together. Stacks must not more than 6 pallets.
Avoid scratches during pulling a panel out from the pallets and restoring it back. If they were exposed to moisture, they must be dried in order to avoid possible staining and corrosion. Any damages must be reported immediately and confirmed by the forwarder.
