The company was originally called English Custom Polish, but after a very short period of time, with everyone saying the products were "brilliant" it was decided to change the name. To be a bit original, it was decided to intentionally use only one "L" and have the slogan: One "L" of a Shine. The two lower case "i" are to highlight the one "L".
Our Metal Polishes are concentrated and also contain a sealant that actually works. Being concentrated allows the Polisher to only use a very small amount of polish which in turn means there isn't enough polish to fill cracks and holes, hence: no mess to clean up. The Sealant will protect the finished product from oxidising way longer than any other metal polish by leaving an invisible barrier to moisture and grime.
Our Metal Polishes have NO shelf life. If it has been sitting a long time, then the sealants may have settled and compacted with the abrasives and may need the dripper nozzle to be removed and the product gently stirred with a very clean screw driver. But other than this it will not go off.
As our polishes are very unique and concentrated, you only use a couple of drops on a nice clean, soft cloth or buff wheel. This way there isn't enough of the polish on the cloth to make a mess, but it will give amazing results.
The answer is definately Yes. Our polish is also unique in that it will not burn at any speed on a buff. Most metal polishes can only be used at low speed (up to about 300rpm) before they will burn, go sticky and black. Our metal polishes can handle any speed, such as buffs on Angle Grinders, Bench Grinders,Dremels and Die Grinders.
Yes it is. If the storage temperature gets very cold, sometimes some of the sealant will crystalise into small spots. This is fine and not cause a problem. The polish will work no differently and the end result will be the same. The white spots will disappear as you work. You can also eliminate these spots by placing the bottle in a warm (NOT HOT) area such as your pocket for a few minutes.
Yes and No. Many Polish Companies will say yes, but in most cases they just want you to waste polish. If you're polishing Aluminium or Alloy then you should use the same area that has the black from earlier work. This black is actually Aluminium Oxide which they use to manufacture cutting and grinding wheels for angle grinders and is actually a super fine cutting compound that will assist you with your polishing. If you are polishing any other types of metal then a clean area is best.
