We recently received an email and some photos from a very satisfied customer who has used Polytrol colour restorer to revive her badly faded powder coated aluminium garage doors. The doors are of the roller shutter variety and were installed in 1991. They are south facing and had been faded badly with some WD40 staining around the locks.
She was delighted with the success of the project and sent us some pretty glowing remarks:
We are delighted with the success of the treatment. They are now as good as new. A one litre was enough to treat these 3 doors and my neighbour’s two garage doors. It also restored his faded brown guttering back to new condition. What a magic product. We never imagined that it would be so successful at such reasonable cost.
What is Polytrol?
Polytrol is a deep penetrating oil which restores the original colour and appearance of dull or tarnished plastics, gelcoats, metals and other surfaces. 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 and it also gives corrosion protection. When used on tarnished metals, it brings back the shine and gives long-term protection against corrosion. Simple to apply using a cloth or soft brush, it’s ready to wipe off in just 10 minutes!
How to apply Polytrol
To apply Polytrol, first thoroughly clean your surface and allow it to fully dry. Next apply the Polytrol with a cloth or bursh and rub into the surface, working in areas which can be treated in 10-20 minutes to ensure even coverage. Wipe off any excess Polytrol with a lint free cloth before it becomes tacky and for a shinier finish, buff the surface with a lint-free polishing cloth.
