Cleaning & Care of Scandium Alloy?

Greetings
Basic question.
Does anyone know if there is any "special" precautions or steps when cleaning or careing for a S&W Scandium Alloy Revolver?

I am in the market for a wheel gun and I just had to know this before I wittle it down to my top 6 list. Thanks.

There are some concerns over the use of some solvents and abrasive cleaning materials. In a nutshell, some solvents will strip the clear coat from your new revolver and abrasive brushes should not be used. Look here for a thread on THR covering this.

I have a couple of TiScan revos by S&W. I use Eezox and a toothbrush. Works fine and finish is like new.

'Scandium ' is in fact an aluminum alloy with about 1/2% scandium. So just handle it like a normal aluminum alloy.
