Polytrol colour restorer inspiration

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.

If you’ve used Polytrol and you have a picture then please feel free to contact us and we can include it in our gallery!

    1. Hi Jane,

      Polytrol is perfect for a black uPVC front door – you should see excellent results! We’d love to see a photo when you’re done.

      Thanks,

  1. Thank you for the information but I am seeking further clarification of the use of a product.
    I am seeking a product to use on my composite (Plastic) decking. I note that some products can be used on plastic composite doors.
    Many adverts mention the word ‘Composite’ but composite can be wood only. Therefore, can any of your products be used with plastic composite products?
    Regards,

    1. Hi Les,

      Thank you for your query.

      What is it that you need the product for? If it is for reviving the colour of your deck, Polytrol is suitable for this, but we also have two Composite care products;
      Compo-Clean – a water-based composite wood cleaner and degreaser suitable for use on all types of exterior composite wood https://www.owatroldirect.co.uk/product/compo-clean/
      Compo-Care – a water-based coating for reviving and enhancing the colour of composite wood whilst also protecting it from stains and waterproofing the surface https://www.owatroldirect.co.uk/product/compo-care/

      I hope this was helpful – please feel free to contact us again should you have any further queries, or call us on 01582 592707

      All the best,
