Pre-Lim Metal Cleaner 65ml can (801045)
A gentle abrasive paste for non-scratch cleaning of metals and many sensitive fine-art surfaces. Pre-Lim is widely used in the professional restoration of arms and amour, sculpture, brass and copper exhibition cookware, ceramics and automobile paintwork and more. The formulation is based on blended Neuburg silica chalks in a water/white spirit emulsion. In normal use the product is not a health hazard. Pre-Lim's cleaning and burnishing action is achieved with extremely fine control using a soft rag and light pressure. After a few minutes of air-drying, the residual chalky deposit is easily rubbed away with a clean rag, leaving surfaces dry and silky-smooth. To ensure that cleaned surfaces, especially metals, remain clean and bright, protect them with our glass-clear Renaissance micro-crystalline wax polish for a long-lasting and visually-enhancing finish. When stored in its air-tight container at room temperature or colder, Pre-Lim has an excellent shelf life. As is customary in professional restoration, a discreet test is advised to ensure that Pre-Lim is suitable for specific projects. Not suitable for use on precious metals such as silver. Size: 65ml can

Vulpex Soap 100ml bottle (801047)
Vulpex Soap has been used with eminent success in the safe and controllable cleaning of materials ranging from feathers, costumery, leather, carpets and furniture to oil paintings, armour, precious metals, shell, marble and stone. Vulpex attacks and emulsifies dirt, fats, fatty oils, mineral oils, waxes and hydrocarbons with great speed and efficiency. The dirty emulsions are remarkably stable, thus easily disposable. Micro-fine cracks harbouring dirt are subject to a deep-cleansing action rarely achieved with normal commercial cleaners. Compared with harsh, acid-based cleaners, alkaline Vulpex is not harmful to health or property. A final rinse or wipe with clean water neutralises the surface, leaving behind nothing to create future conservation problems. When the job demands a non-aqueous cleaning system (for example, when removing grime from leather), Vulpex uniquely can be blended with mineral spirit (paint thinner/white spirit) instead of water. VULPEX IS SUPPLIED AS A DENSE CONCENTRATE AND MUST BE DILUTED BEFORE USE. For normal aqueous cleaning, one part Vulpex to six or seven parts cold tap water (by volume) is sufficient. More water can be added if the soiling is light. As a spirit soap, one part Vulpex in ten to twenty parts solvent will be found effective. Since Vulpex is a highly effective de-greasant, hands should be protected against the loss of natural oils by wearing gloves or the subsequent use of a lanolin hand-cream. Eyes should be protected from splashes.Size: 100ml bottle

Renaissance Metal De-Corroder 100ml bottle (801050)
Safe, Non-toxic System for Rust Removal with Full Control Amine complex of hydro-oxycarboxilic acid in aqueous solution. pH: approximately 4.0 For use on: iron, bronze, copper and copper alloys, brass, steel, zinc and galvanised materials. Also effectively cleans scale and rusty water stains. Treatment selectively ruptures the bond between base metal and corrosion layer, reducing rust to a sludge which is easily wiped or brushed away. Clean-water rinse stops the process. Even relatively prolonged immersion over several days has no significant effect on sound metal, thus giving the conservator complete control over the process and freedom from it. The totally benign nature of the product eliminates work and health hazards associated with common de-rusting systems such as those based on phosphoric and hydrochloric acids. Gloves, masks or protective clothing are not required; normal ventilation and common-sense hygiene procedures should be observed. Following treatment, metal surfaces are stabilised for up to 14 days, giving ample time for applying long-term protection (such as Renaissance micro-crystalline wax polish, which confers a tough but reversible glass-clear lustrous finish). Bi-metallic electrolytic effects between dissimilar metals are insignificant in treatment periods of up to 48 hours. There is no attack on zinc coatings, excepting greatly prolonged immersion. Treatment is most effective at temperatures between 10C and 20C. Colder solutions slow the action still further a useful quality when objects are left immersed over a weekend. Contrast this safe, gentle handling of metals with the more vigorous, often deleterious action of mineral acids. Loose rust or scale should be wire-brushed and surfaces de-greased to allow optimum performance. Immersed objects will be clear of light corrosion in as little as two minutes. During longer immersion for heavier rusting, periodic checks can be made by rubbing the object with a finger. Brushing speeds the process. Storage and treatment vessels of mild steel, porcelain, rubber, polythene or other plastics are suitable. Galvanised, tin, zinc or lead-lined tanks are NOT suitable. After use of the solution, separate it from any sediment by siphoning into a clean container and top up occasionally with fresh solution. The product remains effective for many weeks. Size: 100ml bottle

Phosphor Bronze Small Brush (133x50mm) (801053)
Phosphor-Bronze brushes are made from crimped phosphor-bronze (non-rust) wire bristles, set into wooden stocks with 100% density for effective non-scarring action. Perfect for stone cleaning and metal burnishing applications. The brushes have been used with excellent ratings in the cleaning of historic buildings in the UK especially where Vulpex soap has been specified for interior stonework. The brushes feature fine-drawn phosphor-bronze wire crimped for extra strength and densely packed on hard wood stocks. In action, all the wire elements move as a single unit promoting safer, scar-free cleaning on the most vulnerable stone facings. Compare this with the average industrial wire brush in which tufts of coarse wire rotate freely in pockets of space leaving unsightly scratches. Metal workers and restorers have also found the improved brushes to be effective for faster removal of corrosion products and burnishing with minimal scratching. Picreator's Pre-lim cleaning and burnishing paste used as a final process produces a silk-smooth finish. Wire Length: 25mm (1 in.) Size: 133mm x 50mm (Approx. 5.24in x 1.97in)
