How Autosol Makes Car Care Easy

Posted: 7/17/2020 12:00:00 AM

Autosol was founded by Otto Durst in 1929 and has since become a leading manufacturer of metal polishes and surface care products worldwide. This German brand is widely known for its slogan “A Brilliant Shine Every Time.” Their products can be used for new and classic automobiles, motorcycles, and heavy-duty trucks. 

Actually, they can even be used around the house and even in industrial applications! The superior and consistent quality of Autosol products has led to both BMW and Mercedes-Benz choosing Autosol as a supplier of their car-care products. Autosol is also used by Audi and Volkswagen at factories in Germany and in the Ford factory in Spain.

Why Car Care is Important?

What you really need to watch out for is oxidation. What is oxidation? Well, it’s the process that causes rust and the corrosion of metals. All metals, with the exception of precious metals like gold and silver, will oxidize when exposed to atmospheric moisture. Oxidation is the chemical reaction that causes metal surfaces to corrode (or oxidize) and form the respective metal oxide on the surface. In some metals, like steel, the corrosion is very visible and loose. Everyone has seen the red colour of iron oxide (or rust) on products that weren’t protected. Rust is usually scaly, loose, and falls away easily, exposing more and more of the base material to the environment.

Rust is the last thing you want on a metal surface, so how do you stop it from happening? The answer is Autosol. You can use Autosol’s metal polish on all metal surface types to help restore them to their previous luster, though you should avoid using it on most painted metals, gold, and silver. Do you have some chrome or stainless steel on your classic car that’s seen better days, exhaust pipes that have been corroded with age, or an old antique statue that you’ve never seen without that layer of grime? Think Autosol! It can even clean clouded, yellowed, or hazed plastic headlights.

How to Use Autosol?

To use Autosol’s Metal Polish first you need to clean off any dirt with warm water, mild detergent, and a clean cloth or sponge. Rinse away the suds with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. If the surface is dull, stained, or rusty, it’s time for Autosol! If your metal surface is rough, rub hard. But if it just needs a good shine, rub lightly. If there are signs of corrosion, a mechanical buffer works well and saves you time. To finish, use a clean cloth and rub off all the residue. This should leave you with a clean, shiny surface, ready for an evening drive! Autosol also leaves behind an invisible, protective coating to ensure a long-lasting shine.

Have something that isn’t a metal surface that needs to be polished? Although Autosol is known for its metallic shines, they also make a line of products for plasticleatherscratches on acrylic or painted surfaces, and even marine care. Autosol also makes products specially designed for stainless steel and aluminum.

How to Choose the Right Car Polish?

When it comes to picking the right polish, you have a few options to choose from. Let’s go over some of the Autosol products you can buy online from ohcanadasupply.ca.

Autosol Metal Polish

Aluminum Polish

Aluminum Polish is an ammonia-free product, which means it’s safe to use on uncoated aluminum. Ammonia, which is contained in a large number of cleaning products, is corrosive to aluminum and will pit and tarnish the surface. This product is guaranteed to leave uncoated aluminum surfaces with an unparalleled sheen without hazing or scratching. You can use this aluminum polish on hubcaps or the stainless steel cross box in the back of your truck.

Plastic Cleaner

Plastic Cleaner is a dual action cleaner and conditioner that restores colour and sheen to plastic. While UV inhibitors protect the plastic from fading or becoming brittle when exposed to the sun. This plastic cleaner also contains anti-static agents, which repels dust and dirt. The non-toxic formula leaves a matte finish with a pleasant orange fragrance. The plastic cleaner is great on dashboards, panels, boats, plastic furniture, and plastic headlights or taillights.

Metal Polish Liquid

Metal Polish Liquid this product acts in a similar fashion to the metal polish paste, but it is easier and faster to use when applying to a larger surface area. This is because you can spread it across the surface you are polishing faster with a sweeping motion instead of buffing. Anywhere you use Autosol’s metal polish, you can use the liquid variant.

Marine Shine

Marine Shine this highly abrasive cleaning, polishing, and rubbing agent are ideal for weathered boat surfaces. It cleans and removes rust or grime from all metal hardware and fiberglass surfaces using abrasion, “sanding” away from the damage and dirt. It’s excellent for preserving the luster of hulls, decks, and engines!
