An aluminum brightener should ONLY be applied to non-polished aluminum or painted surfaces. After the application, rinse thoroughly for a silver-satin finish. When used incorrectly it can harm surfaces including etching glass or removing the shine on polished aluminum. Aluminum brighteners may sound intense but when you’re working with Hydro-Chem Systems, we will educate you on their proper use to ensure the protection of yourself, your workers, and the fleet.
