Wenol Metal Polish is a product that will clean, restore, polish
and preserve any smooth metal surface quickly, easily, and at
a reasonable price. It is specifically formulated to perform mildly,
or aggressively. You'll be amazed with the results you'll see.
Remember, no polish, not even Wenol, can polish a rough surface.
We provide some helpful hints to make your polishing tasks easier
Use Wenol Metal Polish in SMALL amounts only. You'll find a little
Wenol goes a long way. You'll save time, work and money.
Polishing Materials: For most polishing jobs you'll find
that soft material is a real key to getting professional results.
Old sweatshirts make terrific polishing cloths. Use coarse cloth
only on rough surfaces. Even minor scratching created by your
polishing cloth will dull the shine.
Rough Aluminum: You will have to prepare rough cast and
badly oxidized aluminum surfaces before they can be polished.
Use professional buffing compounds for best results. If you prefer,
you can dress these surfaces by starting with a course sand paper,
followed by finer grits, then finish sanding with ultra-fine wet/dry
paper (use wet). Final dressing should be done with buffing compounds.
Complete the job and maintain polished surfaces with Wenol Metal
Coated/Anodized Aluminum: Many factory and aftermarket
aluminum wheels and accessories have protective coatings. If you're
not sure if your wheels or trim are coated, apply a little polish
to the surface and rub - if no black residue appears - the surface
is coated. In order to polish these surfaces you must first remove
the coating. Many professional polish shops use "aircraft
stripper" for this job. Use these products with caution and
never use them on, or near, your painted surfaces. Damage will
occur...NOW! For more information on strippers, contact your local
automotive paint supply outlets. Be sure to follow safety precautions.
Brass & Copper: Old brass and copper will generally
clean up quickly and hold a shine for months with Wenol Metal
Polish. On badly spotted or heavily tarnished pieces, you might
want to pre-clean these surfaces with mild acids first. Be sure
to protect yourself when applying these agents. Gloves and safety
glasses are a must. Once stubborn stains are removed, apply Wenol
Silver & Gold: Soft metals can be damaged without
proper care. We recommend using only very soft polishing cloths
on these materials. Rub Wenol into the cloth before polishing,
and apply gently. NEVER use paper towels to polish silver and
gold. Silver should be washed in warm, soapy water after polishing
- this will keep your silver sparkling for months.
Remove Surface Rust: Wenol can remove surface rust with
normal use. On tougher rust areas, apply a small amount of Wenol
and let stand for approximately 1/2 hour. Then, apply a small
amount of polish and rub briskly over the rusted area. Pits and
scratches cannot be removed. Protect cleaned areas with good quality
Avoid Polish Build-Up: Polishing and cleaning detail areas
can be made easier by rubbing Wenol into a polishing cloth first.
This will help eliminate the polish mess that normally settles
into etching and corners. Deep cleaning of these areas can be
accomplished with soft brushes and SMALL amounts of polish. Wash
any remaining residue with warm, soapy water and buff dry.
