Aluminator Environmentally Safe Aluminum Brightener — 1 quart
Aluminum is light, strong and when it’s clean, beautiful. It doesn’t take long for exposed aluminum to lose its original finish and become dull and dingy. Until now keeping aluminum looking its best has been a labor-intensive chore, but with Aluminox aluminum brightener, the job just got a lot easier.
Aluminox cleans and brightens unfinished aluminum* without heavy buffing or polishing. Use it as part of your regular maintenance schedule to prevent the buildup of surface corrosion and keep aluminum parts looking new. Aluminox is a mild surface etching acid solution designed to reduce the need for tedious hand buffing. Spray on an even coat of Aluminator and when the part is clean, simply rinse with clear water to stop the etching process. Used alone, or as a pre-treatment for more detailed polishing, Aluminox is perfect for removing road film, diesel smoke, watermarks, brake dust, and oxidation from any unprotected aluminum surface. Also works great on tires / whitewalls!
*This product is a buffered “safe” acid based aluminum brightener, designed for clean, unfinished (bare) aluminum. Not all aluminums are the same. Many things are manufactured with different alloys and even coatings mixed into the aluminum which, in effect, can block Aluminox.
Aluminox is not a “cleaner”, it is formulated for etching aluminum surfaces and removing oxidation, road film, scum, diesel smoke, and water marks. The quick penetration and etching action reduces the need to rub, buff or agitate the surface being brightened.
Aluminox is a mild surface etching acid solution. Prolonged exposure (soaking) can increase the risk of damage to different parts/materials. The chart below shows the compatibility of different materials with Aluminox.
Excellent = no adverse effects expected
Good = Minor Effect, slight corrosion or discoloration can occur with prolonged exposure
Watch Closely = Moderate Effect, softening, loss of strength, swelling may occur. Not recommended for continuous use
