PVD Finish Emblem
(Physical Vapor Deposition) finishes come with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing. Super-hard and molecularly bonded, PVD is by far the most durable finish available.
Living Finish Emblem
(Living Finishes) are created by artisan hands to uniquely age and change over time. Because they are more delicate by nature, make sure to follow our living finish care instructions.

About PVD Finishes

PVD Finish Emblem
PVD (Physical Vapor Disposition) finishes comes with a lifetime guarantee against tarnishing.  Using a state-of-the-art process that molecularly bonds the finish to the faucet, PVD creates a super-hard surface that is by far the most durable available today.


Finish Care Instructions

For All Finishes
Easy Maintenance

**For Living Finishes (see description below), we recommend Renaissance Wax instead.
And a few important cautions....

Finish-Specific Notes

NICKEL FINISHES
(Satin Nickel)
These finishes are uncoated so as to allow the natural, subtle beauty of the metal to show through.

24K GOLD FINISHES
The name says it all.  Treat 24K gold-plated faucets and fittings like you would fine jewelry.

PVD FINISHES
PVD Finish Emblem
These cutting edge finishes are so effective we guarantee them for life against tarnishing. Although our PVD finishes have proven resistant to over 100 cleaning products, we recommend avoiding certain products (listed below) since they can harm even a PVD finish:

POWDER COAT FINISHES
These finishes are protected with a clear powder coating designed to allow the underlying color to show through and provide a layer of protection.  Still, abrasives and harsh chemicals can damage the finish and expose the underlying fitting to tarnish and corrosion. 

LIVING FINISHES
Living Finish Emblem
These are unique artistic products, created so no two fittings look exactly alike. A remarkable characteristic of these finishes is that they age and wear over time, enhancing the rustic, antique look of the faucet.  Because Living Finishes are by nature more delicate than other finishes, the only treatment we recommend is a high quality wax such as Renaissance Wax, available from your authorized California Faucets dealer.  No other cleaning is necessary or recommended.
Additional Living Finish notes:
For Weathered Brass and Weathered Copper: Allow faucet parts to age in the open air for 1-2 weeks, and then re-wax prior to installation. This will help prevent dark water spots and allow the rich natural patina to develop evenly
For Oil Rubbed Bronze and Rustico Bronze: Areas that are touched frequently, such as handles, will lighten faster from contact and develop additional shine from your natural hand oils.
