Using JAX Aluminum Cleaner is simple:
- Prepare and clean the surface to be treated
- Apply the JAX Aluminum Cleaner
- Wash well with water and dry.
The JAX Aluminum Cleaner only removes tarnish and oxidation. To ensure the best results, clean your metal of all lacquer, oil, grease and wax. JAX manufactures metal cleaners that are optimal for prepping your metal, but there is no one cleaner that will guarantee perfection. Your choice of cleaner depends on what you are trying to remove from your metal. Regardless of what you use to clean your metal, we recommend using Dawn Dishwashing Liquid as the final step before applying the JAX Aluminum Cleaner.
Wearing gloves is highly recommended as to not introduce oils from your hands to the metal. To be safe, eye protection is always recommended.
Use a bristle brush, sponge or rag and apply the JAX Aluminum Cleaner directly to the metal until all oxidation and pitting is removed. You may also dip the entire object into the solution. Practice and experience will help you find the right timing for your work.
Do NOT dilute the JAX Aluminum Cleaner.
Once you have applied the JAX product to your satisfaction, rinse the metal well with fresh, clean water and dry. On particularly heavy oxidation, you may need to reapply the JAX Aluminum Cleaner a second time.
Use a polishing cloth to achieve your desired finish. Once you are happy with your finish, you may wax, oil, or lacquer the metal as a final step, although in many cases leaving the metal “unprotected” may be desirable.
JAX products never expire, however, they can deteriorate over time if not cared for properly. Safety is the first priority. Always store JAX products at room temperature, in tightly closed original containers AND in a locked, safe place. Do not mix used product with fresh. Contaminating the original container will seriously reduce the shelf-life of the product.
Always use JAX Products in plastic or glass containers. When you dispose of used products and containers, please do so in at an approved waste disposal facility. Never reuse an empty JAX container.
Make sure to refer to the Safety Data Sheets for additional information before you begin. Do not mix JAX Products with any other chemicals.
It is advisable to test the JAX Aluminum Cleaner in a small inconspicuous area to make sure that it does not adversely affect or damage the surface being treated.
