Always test on a small, inconspicuous area prior to use. Surface must be cleaned to remove any dirt or sand that may scratch the metal. It is extremely important that the application pad or rag used with this product is never contaminated with these types of abrasives.
To use this product on previously cleaned surfaces, apply with a white, synthetic, non-abrasive pad or one of Presto’s ReSurfacer Pads.
This product will produce a final finish on the metal. Use this product in conjunction with a motorized variable speed polisher or random orbital sander, backer pad, specialized ReSurfacer pad and a spray bottle for lubrication. Always use a GFI when using electricity in close proximity to water. Clean the metal with a brush and squeegee to remove any loose dirt or debris from the surface. Dry surrounding areas and apply masking tape to areas which may receive overspray for easy cleanup. Use masking tape to isolate the intended working area. Do not leave tape on the building overnight.
Always mix product by shaking or stirring well before use. A small amount of product has a large coverage area.
In many circumstances, this product can be used without a motorized polisher by applying a small amount of product with a white, synthetic, nonabrasive pad and agitating the surface until the stain is removed. Use water to keep the surface lubricated.
For aggressive stains, place a small amount of Metal ReSurfacer on the ReSurfacer Pad, making sure to fill all holes in the pad, as it is designed to retain the product.
The motorized polisher should be operated at a medium speed to keep the product from spraying off of the pad and onto unintended surfaces. Operate the polisher pressing firmly on the metal until the stain is completely removed. Use a spray bottle with pure water to lubricate and cool the pad. The use of suction cups allows the technician to stabilize oneself or the swing stage so that effective pressure can be applied to the metal during this process.
The working surface must be kept moist using a spray bottle containing water, preferably deionized. The consistency of the product should be a milky paste. The product should not drip down the surface and should not cake on the pad. Full product potential is reached when the perfect amount of product and water are worked together on the metal. Experimentation is necessary to learn the perfect mixture for your specific application.
Never allow any contamination in the form of dirt of sand to come in contact with the pad or the product. Stop frequently to examine performance, and ensure there is no scratching due to contamination. Never allow the ReSurfacer Pad or polisher to touch the ground or any surface with dirt or dust. If you notice circular pattern scratches in the surface, you have contaminated the pad or the product. If this happens, clean the pad to remove contamination.
Dry buffing or lack of water during the application will cause the product to cake up, and the pad will develop a buildup of material and slow the resurfacing process. Use a stainless steel or copper (nonrusting) wire brush to remove excess material from the pad, and continue restoration. It is necessary to clean the pad 3 to 6 times per hour to maximize efficiency of the process. To clean the ReSurfacer pad, operate the polisher upside down on slow and apply the wire brush to the pad starting at the center and slowly moving towards the end of the pad until the entire pad is cleaned. Use the waterfilled spray bottle to rinse the pad and continue working. Maximum efficiency is experienced just after cleaning the pad. If you experience a slowing or halt of performance, stop and clean the pad as described above.
Only qualified individuals should attempt to use this system. Using a random orbital sander in replacement of the variable speed polisher will reduce the possibility of scratches; however, the metal resurfacing process may take longer and may not work as well on heavily stained surfaces. Consulting and training are available from Presto.
For faster working times, have all equipment readily available to enable continuous operation. Use a small bottle of the Metal ReSurfacer which can be placed in a pocket or tool belt for easy access. Use a spray bottle which can be attached to the technician so that the pad can remain on the metal while water or additional product is applied to the working surface.
