A customer recently sent some before and after shots of a project completed on their 15 year old Land Rover. They used Polytrol to restore the shine to paintwork on the exterior. It’s not a long and laborious job, quite the contrary!
Restore shine to paintwork with Polytrol
Using Polytrol couldn’t be easier. Firstly, you need to clean the surface using soapy water and allow it to dry (you can also use Net-Trol for cleaning). Next, you simply apply a generous layer of Polytrol with a brush or cloth. Then, leave it for 10-20 minutes and finally wipe off any excess to leave a revived surface. We would recommend that you work in areas that can be completed in 10-20 minutes to ensure even coverage.
Polytrol is a deep penetrating oil which restores the original colour and appearance of dull or tarnished plastics, gelcoats, metals and more. It penetrates the surface, re-wetting the pigments to restore their lustre and colour which has been lost through exposure to sunlight, rain and pollution. It also gives corrosion protection.
It’s not only for use on faded plastics and paintwork either, it has a whole heap of uses. When used on tarnished metals, it brings back the shine and gives long-term protection against corrosion. Polytrol can even be used on fibreglass (GRP) making it perfect for such a wide variety of uses. It’s even perfectly safe to use on children’s garden equipment too. Great for dealing with the sun-faded playhouse and slide!
