DIY vs. Professional Metal Polishing

Posted by on 12:00 pm in News | Comments Off on DIY vs. Professional Metal Polishing

DIY vs. Professional Metal Polishing

Many people ask us “Is using a professional for metal polishing really worth it”. This answer isn’t that simple as it all depends on the alloy of metal that needs polishing as well as the size of it. It would be a tall order for a novice to complete statue restoration. Whereas a ring or a smaller piece of jewellery is possible for someone with little to no experience. For those who are unaware as to what metal polishing is, it is the process of removing blemishes and scratches from a metal surface. Improving the overall aesthetic appearance and longevity of the metal.

Things to remember when completing Metal Polishing

Here at M.A Polishing, we complete numerous types and styles of metal polishing, from a whole range of alloys, ranging from the rare and exotic to the extremely common. Here are a few general tips we’ve put together to help you with your metal polishing.

  • Firstly, the condition and quality of the metal will determine your starting point. But most importantly clean before you polish. You won’t see the full benefits of metal polishing if there are dirt marks or blemishes on the surface.
  • Determine whether sanding is needed. If your fingernail catches on a scratch, then it will need sanding before polishing.
  • Selecting your compound and buffing cloth, once again this is determined by your metal work. Coat your cloth and add slight pressure and start your polishing. Repeat until satisfied.
  • To finish, add a finishing compound for a mirror-like shine letting the compound do the work, then wash with warm soapy water, and dry.

(Metal Polishing will vary from metal to metal as well as the compounds and cleaning kits you use)

Benefits of Metal Cleaning

Metal cleaning has many long-term benefits as it does short term. Metals that go uncleaned are less resistant to rust, corrosion and wear. Enhanced resistance to these oxidatives will increase the lifespan of your metal. Without correct cleaning or treatment it will disintegrate at a much faster rate. Our metal cleaning also increases the durability of your items from abrasions or wear, this is particularly suited for projects in town centres where high footfall occurs over floor laid monuments.

As well as the long-term benefits listed above, you will also see obvious, immediate benefits such as enhanced appearance. Whether you require a high gloss, sheened or textured finish our metal workers have the skills to clean your metal based on your requirements. We can remove surface marks, burrs or other unsightly flaws, which as a result leaves your metal with an enhanced visual spectacle.
