Before (left) and After (right) results from using Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Compound.
Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish works like magic on aluminum and chrome wheels. It erases oxidation and brake dust damage with its combination of cleaners and abrasives. Yellowed areas where brake dust has glazed the metal will disappear. The fine abrasives will eliminate the tiny pits where brake dust has begun eating into the metal. Meanwhile, Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish lifts stubborn brake dust and road grime off the metal. This is the grime that's left on the wheels even after you've cleaned them. This polish cleans it all!
Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish is also step two in a complete, three-part restoration process. Use it after Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Aluminum Compound to remove any light swirls or haze created by compounding and to restore a bright, reflective gloss. If you really want wheels and trim to pop, finish them off with Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Concours Aluminum Polish.
If you are not sure whether the surface in question needs a pre-polish, test a small area by polishing with Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish. If it gives you the desired results, there is no need for compounding. If you still see some oxidation and hazy areas, use the Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Aluminum Compound and then use Fine Aluminum Polish.
Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish should be applied with a dual action or rotary polisher for the best results.
If using a rotary, take care not to burn the metal. Keep the polisher moving at all times. Burnt metal appears bluish. If this happens, allow the area to cool and then go back over it with the polisher. The blue mark cannot be removed in all cases and great care should be taken to avoid burning the metal.
Polishing Trailers, Diamond Plate & Aircraft:
Put a 50/50 Wool Acrylic Polishing Pad onto your polisher. Wool is the best choice for diamond plate because of the uneven surface.
Wipe a thin layer of Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish onto the desired surface using an applicator pad.
Polish between 1200-1500 RPM (or 4-5 OPM on a dual action polisher). Polish until the aluminum appears clean and glossy.
* On aluminum, brass and copper, a black residue will appear as you polish.
* On chrome and stainless steel, no residue will appear. Polish until stains disappear.
Wipe the surface clean. If the surface is clean and smooth with a bright gloss, continue to Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Aluminum Concours Polish. If you can see spots and stains, repeat this process until a uniform shine is achieved.
Wash used pads and towels in a mixture of DP Polishing Pad Rejuvenator and water. Allow them to soak for several minutes and then rinse. Air dry or machine dry on low.
Polishing Wheels & Trim:
Tape off the paint or plastic surrounding the area to be polished.
Wipe a thin layer of Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Fine Aluminum Polish on the desired surface.
Polish at 3000 RPM until the defects are removed.
Buff the area to remove any residue. Check your work. Repeat this process if necessary.
Follow up with Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Aluminum Concours Polish to restore maximum gloss.
Warning! Wolfgang MetallWerk™ Aluminum Compound should not be used on anodized, plated, painted, or coated metals.
Use a finger pocket or foam applicator to
apply polish to the surface.
Use a 50/50 Wool Acrylic Polishing Pad with your rotary to work in the compound.
Spread the polish on the surface
before turning on the polisher.
Polish between 1200-1500 RPM (or 5-6 OPM on a dual action polisher)
Polish until your surface appears to be clean and
free of stains. If you see spots and stains, repeat
the process until a uniform shine is achieved.
Wipe the surface clean. Repeat the process
if stains or oxidation are still present.
How To Clean Wool Pads
As you're working, check the wool pad periodically to make sure it has not become caked with polish. This also makes the pad less effective.
Take a moment to fluff the pad by holding the Duo Spur Pad Cleaning Tool to the wool as the pad spins.
The Duo Spur is a safer way to fluff the pad than steel because a steel brush can remove many wool strands.
The Duo Spur has plastic teeth to push excess polish out of the wool and to restore the texture.
With the polish turned off, lay it on a sturdy surface (like the ground) pad side up.
Turn the polisher on and hold the polisher still with one hand while you hold the Duo Spur against the wool with the other hand. You don't have to apply much pressure.
Be sure to keep your hand clear of the spinning pad.
After just a few seconds, the wool is fluffed and ready to go.
