Restoring stainless steel is quick and easy with Buff Magic

by Shurhold 3 Aug 2021 16:00 UTC

The term stainless steel is somewhat misleading. Continually exposed to the elements, it eventually oxidizes and may even corrode or rust—especially around saltwater. Thankfully, restoration is quick and easy with Innovation Award-winning Buff Magic and a Shurhold Clean-N-Simple tip.

Most refinishing methods require a series of progressively finer grit compounds that are laboriously applied and wiped off one at a time. A true one-step product, Buff Magic contains a unique jeweler's rouge that breaks down as it's used. The formula starts with an aggressive abrasiveness that quickly removes surface oxidation and rust, yet transforms into a creamy paste that is gentle enough to polish easily-scratched materials like Plexiglas.

Using Buff Magic is simple. After taping around the stainless steel fitting, a small dab is applied using a damp rag. Because the concentrated formula contains no fillers, a little goes a long way; too much can actually slow the process.

Shurhold Buff Magic can be worked by hand or using a Dremel or other small electric tool with the speed set on low. If the polishing process is too vigorous, the material breaks down too quickly and the project may require another pass.

As Buff Magic is used, a black slurry will develop. This is the tarnish getting trapped in the solution. Once the original shine of the stainless steel is restored, a microfiber towel and Shurhold's Serious Shine Quick Detailer will make the hardware sparkle like new. It's also perfect for quickly cleaning up any sludge that stained the surrounding fiberglass. For more information click here.
