Aluminox

pontoon brighten picNon-Fluoride Aluminum Brightener and Cleaner

 

This stuff is amazing! It only takes 4 minutes to apply to a pontoon.

Aluminox is a concentrated industrial strength acid brightener that is a safer alternative to traditional aluminum brighteners, such as hydrofluoric acid. Aluminox is a proprietary blend of acids and catalysts or "activators". The catalysts make the surface of the aluminum more reactive which allows the acid blend to be more productive on bare aluminum.

This product will brighten aluminum and will remove road film without the negative hazards associated with most brighteners. Aluminox will quickly remove any aluminum oxide, leaving a fresh aluminum surface for welding, polishing, stripping, paint or pre-paint treatments. It is exceptional at cleaning polished stainless steel to a brilliant shine and quickly removes brake dust from wheels. Aluminox is biodegradable and, when pH neutralized, is safe for disposal in most municipalities.

ATTN: After Aluminox has been applied/rinsed, the aluminum is subject to oxidation again as the metal is unprotected. We recommend protecting your efforts with Oxi-X; please see step 6 under "Instructions" below.

APPLICATIONS

BENEFITS AND FEATURES:

Mill Finished Aluminum Cleaning:
pontoon brightener backOn mill finish aluminum, (older pontoons and unpainted flat aluminum panels on aluminum trailers) the aluminum turns light gray as shown in the picture. The more you dilute the cleaner, the less grayish color you will get. Unfortunately it is extremely difficult for this type of aluminum to go back to the showroom finish. However, the whitish gray is 100% better than the oxidized black.

Polished Aluminum Finishes:
Aluminox will dull polished aluminum finishes (mirrored finishes/diamond plate). The only way to bring polished aluminum back to a reflective finish is to polish. However, cleaning with Aluminox will make the job much easier and in the case of pontoons, looks better without the reflective finish.

DIRECTIONS:

1 gallon concentrate makes 3 gallons RTU - Normal Duty
1 gallon concentrate makes 2 gallons RTU - Heavy Duty

  1. Clean dirt/algea/hard water deposits first (see NOTE 1)
  2. For general brightening of aluminum, dilute 1 part Aluminox to 2 parts water. For extra-heavy oxidation (like pontoons) or when being used in cold weather, dilute 1 part Aluminox to 1 part water.
  3. To prevent streaking, apply to surface with low pressure, start at the bottom and work Oxi X Protective Coatingupward. For an even finish brush lightly to help remove oil and dirt. A pump-up chemical sprayer, equivalent pumping system or long handled brush is recommended for application (We suggest a bucket with a brush, its fast, easy, and avoids overspray and wind issues).
  4. Let sit for 1 minute then rinse well with water.
  5. Re-apply as desired.
  6. IMPORTANT:
    After Aluminox has been applied/rinsed, the aluminum is subject to oxidation again as the metal is unprotected. Appy 2-3 very thin coats of Oxi-X coating/protector (Pic Right) with a moist streak-free cloth for season long protection. 1 quart will do about 8 pontoons as pictured above. Purchase below.

NOTE 1: if cleaning pontoons or other surfaces with scale or hard water deposits, clean the scale or hard water deposits off first with Jackhammer Scale and Hard Water Deposit Cleaner.

CAUTION:
Due to wind mis-directing the fine spray, it is not recommended to use a hand trigger sprayer outdoors to apply this product. This product will dull polished aluminum surfaces; but is safe on chrome, steel and polished stainless steel. Do not allow to dry on surface. Avoid overspray onto vehicles or other fine-finish surfaces such as aluminum, paint or glass. Also, Aluminox is acidic and will etch concrete; it is best to apply on a non-concrete surface. Rinse well immediately if Aluminox comes in contact with concrete.

Iused your product on a 2000 trailer that I recently purchased. I doubt the trailer had ever been washed since it was new. Thought you might like a picture of the progress in returning the trailer to a like new finish. Thanks, great product!
