Spotted glass a thing of the past with Shurhold

It's frustrating to spend hours cleaning a boat, only to look through a windscreen or portlight and see hard water stains. Fortunately, these unsightly blemishes are easy to remove without damaging the vessel if the right tools and chemicals are used. Shurhold Industries offers a simple solution to regain crystal-clear glass.

When private or municipal water dries, the calcium, sodium and other minerals left behind form hard water stains. Even rain, collecting dirt and dust particles as it falls, can create spots that are hard to remove. If left untreated, they can actually etch the glass, permanently disfiguring it.

Often, people use common products such as window cleaner or vinegar to clean the stains. But as soon as they dry, the spots reappear.

Shurhold's combination of Buff Magic Compound and a Magic Wool Hand Pad is a sure winner. A small dab, worked gently in small, tight circles, will turn the product hazy. Then, it's simply a matter of buffing with a clean, dry microfiber cloth. For extra-large panes of glass, a Dual Action Polisher with a Magic Wool Polisher Pad can be used, if set at its slowest speed. The result is unrivaled clarity.

Buff Magic Compound is the ultimate restoration compound that removes oxidation, gelcoat staining, surface rust and minor scratches. As it's used, the abrasives in the proprietary formula break down, becoming ever finer. No longer are multiple grits needed to complete one job; Buff Magic goes from dull to glossy in one easy step.

The Magic Wool Hand Pad and Polisher Pad are ultra-fine, pure bronze scrub pads. Unlike steel wool, they won't leave rust stains or disintegrate after a single use. They're perfect for use on chrome and stainless steel fittings, brightwork, propellers and solar panels.
