Answers About Apollo Magna

  1. Can chipped or scratched Apollo® Magna Solid Surface Worktops be repaired?

    Yes, chips and scratches on your Apollo® Magna solid surface worktops can be repaired. Light surface scratches can easily be removed using the care and maintenance kit provided with your worktop. Dark colours are more prone to highlight scuffs and scratches than lighter ones and will require more maintenance to ensure they stay looking their best.
  2. What can stain Apollo® Magna Solid Surface kitchen worktops?

    Apollo® Magna solid surface worktops are engineered to be nonporous and impervious to liquids. However, it is always recommended to clean up spills as soon as they occur. Avoid contact with strong chemicals such as paint stripper, brush cleaners, oven cleaner or nail varnish. If accidental spillage occurs, rinse well immediately with plenty of soapy water.
  3. How do I clean Apollo® Magna Solid Surface worktops?

    Keep Apollo® Magna solid surface worktops clean by simply wiping away dirt with a clean, soft, damp cloth. A neutral detergent can be added to the water solution that you are using but for best results, apply our specially formulated cleaner (included in the care and maintenance kit) regularly to your work surface. Avoid the use of harsh chemicals or cleaners. Always buff the surface dry to avoid water residue marks and to restore the sheen.
  4. Do I need to fit a sub-base when fitting Apollo® Magna Solid Surface worktops?

    Apollo® Magna solid surface worktops are not as heavy as Quartz or Granite and an additional sub-base is not usually required. Apollo® Magna worktops can be fitted directly on top of your base units. You can fit a sub-base to your units if you want to provide further support.
  5. Can I place hot pans on the Apollo® Magna Solid Surface worktops?

    No, heat resistant is not the same as heat proof. Always use pot stands, pan rests or hob bars to prevent damage to your Apollo® Magna composite kitchen worktops.
  6. Can I cut and prepare directly on Apollo® Magna Solid Surface worktops?

    To maintain the beautiful continuity and smoothness that Apollo® Magna worktops are best know for, it is recommended to use chopping boards.
