Description

Oxidation is the most common problem we all experience with any metal surface, including aluminum wheels or diamond rings, it’s the nature of exposed metal surfaces to oxidize and tarnish when exposed to the air. 

3D Metal Polish is unique in the metal polish category because unlike the majority of other metal polishes on the market, our polish does not use harsh chemical cleaners or solvents, nor does it rely on old school abrasive technology to remove the oxidation.

The chemists at 3D Products started with the goal being how to remove oxidation and restore a brilliant mirror shine without dulling or scratching the surface in the process. They came up with a proprietary blend of chemical cleaners and an abrasive technology that can remove oxidation without at the same time leaving its own scratches behind in the surface. The result is a metal polish that can remove years of oxidation and tarnish while creating a better-than-new mirror shine.

With many metal polishes, you’ll smell the distinct foul odor of ammonia, this is the old school way of chemically attacking oxidation. Most metal polishes also use archaic abrasive technology which is cheap. Does this approach work? Yes and no. Sure, these types of products will remove oxidation and make metal shine, but simply an outdated process that will never produce the same or better results than 3D Metal Polish. 

Because here at 3D we ARE the manufacturer, there is no middleman like you find with companies that farm-out their products to a blending company, thus you get the best ingredients available in all our products at a competitive price. 

Why work harder with old school technology when you can work smarter with cutting edge technology. The next time you have a metal polishing project coming up, start by contacting 3D’s Customer Care Team because they have years of experience when it comes to polishing all types of metal. Get help first and then get 3D Metal Polish along with the tools, pads, and polishing applicators it’s going to take to do the job right. With our help you’ll get the job done right the first time with professional grade results. We guarantee it.

3D on the outside of the bottle means you can trust the product on the inside of the bottle.

What is it? - Liquid metal polish.

What does it do? - Removes oxidation, staining, surface impurities and contamination to restore brilliance and clarity to all metal surfaces.

When do you use it? - Anytime you want to restore a brilliant, clear shine to any metal surface.

Why use 3D Metal Polish over other options? - 3D Metal Polish is different than all the other metal polishes on the market. Most metal polishes use old chemistry based upon harsh solvents and chemical cleaners. The also rely on old school abrasive technology to remove oxidation. 3D Metal Polish uses our own proprietary chemistry developed in our labs to create a metal polish that cleans and removes oxidation without relying on harsh solvents, chemicals, or antiquated abrasive technology.

In the detailing world, the quality of ALL products comes down to what’s inside the bottle or can. It’s the chemists that make the real difference, not the marketing department. At 3D our top priority is to have the best chemistry in the product. We know if the product is the best in its category, then word-of-mouth advertising will take care of the marketing.

Directions

IMPORTANT: Always work on a cool clean surface in the shade. Whenever you’re polishing metal surfaces, the type and the texture of your application material is a huge factor in the cutting ability of the polish or the final finishing results of the polish. Cutting with a wool pad on a rotary buffer at high speed will remove oxidation incredibly fast but it will not leave swirl-free finish.  

For delicate surfaces, to bring the metal surface to a mirror perfect shine, a soft cotton applicator like round cotton cosmetic removal patches will be less aggressive the cotton terry cloth and even cotton t-shirt material.  If you have any questions about how to start and finish any metal polishing process, please contact customer care before you start. We will be happy to help guide you through the process and the appropriate products you’ll need.

By Hand

Material choice – For neglected surfaces, start with 100% cotton terrycloth toweling, for example, cut an old bath towel or hand towel into pieces about 6” by 6” and fold this piece of cloth in half for working the polish over the oxidized or tarnished surface. As a follow-up step or for metal surfaces in good shape, use a soft material, for example cut a t-shirt up into small piece, like 6” by 6” or use a microfiber or cotton applicator. For fine polishing work, visit a local drug store and purchase ladies 2” cotton rounds for removing make-up.

Step 1: Using the appropriate material for the condition of the metal surface, apply an ample amount of 3D Metal Polish and spread the product out using an overlapping circular motion.

Step 2: After spreading the polish out, work the product with firm pressure. If the metal surface has a grain, then work the polish in a back-n-forth motion in the direction of the grain.

Step 3: Using a clean cotton or microfiber towel, remove the residue and buff the finish to a brilliant shine.

Orbital Polisher

Pad choice – For neglected, oxidized metal surfaces, use a fiber pad. For a follow-up step or for metal surfaces in good condition, use a foam polishing pad.

Step 1: Apply 3D Metal Polish to the face of the pad. Using a medium speed spread the product out over the area to be worked.

Step 2: Turn the polisher to a medium to high speed, whatever it takes to maintain pad rotation, and then using medium downward pressure on the head of the polisher, begin making slow, overlapping passes in a crosshatch pattern. As you’re polishing, monitor pad rotation. For effective oxidation removal and polishing to a mirror finish – you must maintain pad rotation.

Step 3: After 8 to 10 section passes, turn polisher off and using cotton or microfiber towel, remove polish residue. Re-wipe the area using a second, clean cotton or microfiber towel to bring metal surface to a clear, mirror finish.

NOTE: For severely neglected surfaces, you may need to do 2-3 steps starting with a fiber pad and then finishing with a foam pad.

Rotary Polisher

Pad choice – For neglected, oxidized metal surfaces, use a traditional wool cutting or polishing pad. The fibers for this type of pad are a form of abrasive and together with the metal polish will cut oxidation very fast. The downside is the fibers themselves will tend to leave holograms in the metal surface. These holograms can be removed by doing a second polishing step using an orbital polisher with a foam polishing pad.

For metal surfaces in good condition, use a foam polishing pad. Keep in mind, anytime you use a rotary polisher, the single rotating direction of the pad against the metal surface will leave holograms. For a hologram-free finish you must re-polish using an orbital polisher with a foam pad.

Step 1: Apply 3D Metal Polish in a circle around the inside of the face of the pad. Using a slow speed spread the product out over the area to be worked.

Step 2: Turn the polisher to a medium to high speed, and then using medium downward pressure on the head of the polisher, begin making slow, overlapping passes in a crosshatch pattern. 

Step 3: After 8 to 10 section passes, turn polisher off and using cotton or microfiber towel, remove polish residue. Re-wipe the area using a second, clean cotton or microfiber towel to bring metal surface to a clear, mirror finish.

NOTE: For severely neglected surfaces, you may need to do 2-3 steps starting with a fiber pad and then finishing with a foam pad.

Keep in mind, anytime you use a rotary polisher, the single rotating direction of the pad against the metal surface will leave holograms – EVEN WITH A FOAM PAD. For a hologram-free finish you must re-polish using an orbital polisher with a foam pad.

Additional Information

Professional Technique Tip – Go up on edge

The term, go-up-on-edge, means to hold the polisher so that instead of the pad being flat against the surface, only one side of the pad is in contact with the surface. This is called, going up on edge.

The reason this makes it easier to control the pad and thus the polisher is because when only about 1/3 of the pad is in contact with the surface, there will only be a pull (from the pad), in one direction. Once you get a feel for this pull, you can not only more easily control it, but you can use it to your advantage.

When you try to hold a pad on a rotary polisher completely flat to a surface, because the pad is spinning in a single direction, (clockwise), sometimes one side of the pad will grab the surface and yank you in that direction and seconds later another side of the pad will grab the surface and yank you in a different direction. The entire time you’re buffing you’re being yanked around by the polisher. This will not only tire you out quickly, but it will also make buffing frustrating.

Avoid the frustration and avoid having your rotary polisher yank you around for hours and simply learn how to go up on edge and master the rotary polisher. If you’re new to the rotary polisher, start any metal polishing project by contacting our Customer Care Team and they will help you to make the job faster and easier and with better results the first time.
