Cleaning, Brightening, Protecting Aluminum Horse Trailers


Ranee Richards asked:

Can you tell me if Alumetron would work on a horse trailer that has brushed aluminum?
And which product would I purchase to clean the Aluminum and which product to polish it??


For your convenience, I’ve highlighted the hyperlinks. Click on the hyperlink to get more information about the selected product.

You can use Boat Clean Plus to clean the trailer. It is a water based, water activated, free rinsing, concentrated cleaner degreaser that is tough on dirt and grime yet safe for all surfaces. It will clean bug splatter, bird droppings, road film, grease, oil, grass stains, blood, urine, feces, pollution, dirt, grime and much more, yet it will not damage raw,
anodized or painted aluminum, rubber, vinyl, wood, glass, plastic etc.

If the aluminum on the trailer is stained, use Alumabrite CBX to brighten it. Alumabrite CBX is a highly concentrated, industrial strength, marine grade brightener that works in minutes. Spray on rinse clean. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully to avoid streaking or whitening of the aluminum because it works very quickly.

To protect the trailer use Alumetron. When the aluminum is clean and bright simply wipe on several coats with a cloth pad and let dry to a very durable protective clear coat. Alumetron bonds chemically to the aluminum for exceptional durability.In addition to protecting the exterior and interior vertical surfaces, it can also be used under the rubber pad to protect against staining and corrosion from urine. If ever the Alumetron coating is damaged from scratching or abrasion, it can be retouched in the field.

Thanks for your question,
