If there is one brand that is certainly making a name for themselves in the world of metal polishes at the moment – that brand is Britemax. Here one of our regular contributors – Mark Beardmore – puts their flagship Britemax Twins Metal Polish to the test.
Originally from the US the Britemax brand and product range have been introduced into the UK by father & son team John & Matt Rooke – both with a keen interest in the world of motoring.
Their two flagship metal polishes in the range are the Britemax Easy Cut and the Britemax Final Shine. The first being a fast working concentrated polish to remove grime and oxidation and the second being a lighter polish and sealant to remove light to medium blemishes and provide a long lasting sealant protection to your metal.
I will let Mark take up the story with the details and results of his test: “The first car i tackled with the Britemax wax Jens’ Vauxhall. This has a full stainless system and it looked like it had never been touched.
First I used the Easy Cut with a microfibre applicator, this removed alot of the grime build up but i felt i could do better so i got out the 00 grade wire wool and used this with the Easy Cut, after removing as much of the tarnish and build up as possible i went over again with the Easy Cut on the microfibre, this was buffed off to reveal a good shine.
I followed this up with the second stage Final Shine which increased the shine and is from what the manufacter says a sealant, this was applied once again with a microfibre applicator left a few minutes to haze/cure and then buffed off to reveal a great overal finish.
This whole process was repeated on my mazda with similar results meaning now i have two cars with lovely shiny back boxes.
My conclusion of the products are they are very easy to use and if extra bite is needed a bit of fine grade wire wool makes removal of harder deposits alot easier going. Whilst not removing everything the products delivered a exellent finish in a relativley short space of time so overal they get a big thumbs up.
Our thanks to Mark for taking the time to put these products through their paces and sharing the results and pics.
