We love love love Polytrol colour restorer here at Owatrol but we think it’s such an undervalued product and we’d love you to try it out. It has so many possible uses and it’s beyond easy to use!
What is Polytrol?
Polytrol colour restorer revives the colour and appearance of many different types of surfaces including plastics, GRPs, metal, paint and tiles.
It restores the colour and appearance of dull and faded surfaces caused by exposure to sunlight, rain and pollution. Polytrol also provides protection against corrosion and blemishes.
It does this by penetrating deep down into the surface and re-wetting the pigments that have been lost.
Polytrol can also be used on bare metals too, which restores the shine and protects against corrosion.
To use Polytrol you first need to clean your surface (we recommend using Net-Trol for most surfaces, excluding metal, for which you should use an appropriate solvent). Once it has dried you can then apply the Polytrol.
For all surfaces excluding metals, simply apply the Polytrol liberally and evenly with a brush or cloth. Allow it to work for 10-20 minutes. Then wipe off any excess with a clean lint free cloth and simply leave it to dry.
For metal surfaces, follow the exact same procedure but apply Polytrol using a fine wire wool (000 grade) with Polytrol soaked in it.
We’ve put together a gallery of inspiration including some projects completed by Owatrol customers. Take a look and see if you’re experiencing something similar and what kind of result you should expect to see.
Polytrol can not be used on white surfaces. This is because Polytrol is a colour restorer and there for requires pigments to revive.
