Anodized Aluminum Finish Restorer

Description and Use

A.R.T. is a solvent-based resin system designed for treating the surface of anodized aluminum to renew satin luster that has been damaged by environmental or chemical pollutants. A.R.T. adheres to aluminum for extended periods without cracking or peeling and is easily removed for retreatment.

Advantages

* Non-hazardous and Non-flammable
* Renews anodized finish
* Protects for long periods of time

Limitations

* Will not restore pitted anodized aluminum

Preparation

Thorough clean with OneRestore is necessary before coating. The product can be misted or wiped on with a dilution of straight up to 4:1. Rubbing with a nylon scrubbing pad may be necessary if surface is badly stained. Thoroughly rinse. After drying, the surface should be ready for application. If an unexpected film appears, normally indicates a failed coating. If re-applying OneRestore does not remove the residue, use AcryliStrip. Mist or wipe on AcryliStrip and pressure rinse off. Let dry then proceed to coat with A.R.T.

Surface and Air Temperatures

Excessively high or low temperatures will produce poor results and possible harm. Best cleaning results are obtained when air and surface temperatures are 40° Fahrenheit or above. Do not clean when temperatures are below freezing or will be overnight. If freezing conditions exist, allow adequate time for surface to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90° Fahrenheit, flash cool the surface with water before applying product. The surface needs to be dry when applying this product

Pre-Testing

Always test prior to beginning full-scale cleaning operations. Testing should confirm cleaning effectiveness on each type of surface and stain designated to be cleaned. After proper cleaning of the surface with OneRestore or AcryliStrip apply A.R.T. as described below. Any problems with the restoration should become apparent during the cleaning phase.

Dilution

Use undiluted (straight).

Application Instructions

Before applying read “Protect” in Preparation section and “Precautionary Measures” under Safety Information. After thorough preparation apply A.R.T. with a soft, lint-free cloth to the anodized aluminum. Apply an amount A.R.T. to the cloth; ring out the excess, to spread over at least one whole window or door segment. Wipe on one thin coat, in one direction. Do not go back over A.R.T. let dry. When the cloth no longer provides adequate coverage re-wet with A.R.T

Note: If A.R.T. gets on any adjoining surfaces, wipe free. Product applied too heavily will remain tacky and attract dust and airborne particles. A.R.T. should not be applied over a previously applied coating. If coated, remove it with the appropriate stripper. This system will not restore pitted anodized aluminum. Once pitting has occurred, exposing bare metal, only repainting will fix the surface.

Coverage Rates

Minimum expected coverage per gallon is 3000 - 5000 lineal feet of anodized trim. Application to a flat surface would produce 1500 - 2000 square feet of coverage.
