Titanium Maintenance & Care
Titanium is one of the coolest metals on earth, but just like any metal, it requires proper care.
Titanium is sensitive to oils from your hands and some other elements in the environment, which might seem to discolor or fade the anodized coating, but don’t worry! The anodized coating is just as strong as the metal itself.
When installing titanium parts, it’s a good idea to wear a set of gloves to keep the oil from your hands off the part. Make sure to clean the part after installation before any heat is applied to ensure the oils are not baked on the part.
When you need to clean your titanium parts, we offer our very own JDC Titanium Cleaner, which is specially formulated to safely clean any titanium without hurting the finish. Alternatively, you can wash the part with soapy water and dry with a microfiber towel. You can also use a microfiber rag with Windex, rubbing alcohol, or a clorox wipe. We do not recommend using any harsh chemicals like water spot remover, engine degreaser, or brake parts cleaner. You should also never use any type of metal polish or any acidic cleaner since these can both lighten or completely remove the oxidized layer on the part, leaving it colorless.
Important: Make sure your titanium parts are cool to the touch before attempting to clean them. Spraying water or chemicals on a hot part may cause water spots to appear on the surface, which can be hard to remove without tarnishing the colored finish.
JD Customs USA does not warranty the color finish on any part, but we will recolor any titanium part we sell for up to one year from purchase. If the part must be recolored due to improper care or cleaning, there will be an additional service fee applied depending on the size and quantity of parts. The buyer will be responsible for paying shipping both ways. This applies to the original buyer only.
