Gently cleans all plastics that have a hard shiny and non-absorbent surface without scratching. It leaves a lustrous shine that resists fogging, repels dust & resist finger prints. Anti static and anti fog properties are also helpful on face shields. Brillianize lets you clean & glaze in one step.
Novus Scratch Removers
Novus#2 Fine Scratch Remover:
*Novus Scratch Removers are not for use on coated plastics or
Plastic Care and Cleaning:
It's best to first soak the AeroScreen, HeadLight Cover, Wings, etc. with water to loosen bugs, tar, dried mud, etc before washing. You can use a mild soap, such as Dawn dish washing solution and warm water or a cleaner made specifically for use on plastic. We've had great success using "Brillianize® Plastic Cleaner/Polish" for both in-house production and personal use. Brillianize is non-toxic, contains No Ammonia or Alcohol, and is an Anti-Static.
Novus #2 Restore and Refinish. Removes fine scratches, haziness and abrasions from most plastics.
Novus #3 Repair and Prepare. Removes most heavy scratches and abrasions from plastics.
Novus not recommended for use on coated plastics.
Carnuba Wax, Glazes, etc:
If needed, fill any swirl marks with a water soluble glaze. Since glazes are water-soluble they need to be sealed with a hard paste wax - not a liquid wax. We recommend using a hard, Carnuba paste wax on the plastic to protect from minor scratches. Plus, it's good for repelling rain. Waxing the screen helps keep it from drying out which prolongs the life of the plastic.
Plastic Care "DON'TS:
Never use Ammonia-based cleaners, ie; Windex, to clean plastic. It will attack the plastic, make it brittle and will "fog" or make the plastic semi-opaque.
Never use harsh chemicals, detergents, or powdered cleansers to clean plastic. Chemicals such as Simple Green, Detergents and powdered etch and dry out plastic making it brittle.
Never wipe a dry windscreen or use paper towels. Doing either of these will scratch your windscreen. Use a clean, dry cloth, preferably a poly-cloth, old cloth diaper, or soft terry cloth hand towel.
Never use gas station squeegees or windshield cleaner! The squeegee will scratch the plastic and the cleaner can etch the plastic making it hazy and brittle. Again, never use paper towels or squeegees
Cleaning on the road:
Never use gas station sponge or squeegees used for car glass. The sponge usually has a fiber netting on it that will scratch the plastic. Never use paper towels for cleaning screens, as they too will scratch the plastic. Warm, soapy water with a sponge or soft terry cloth towel will remove most dirt and bugs from the plastic. We always carry 2 soft wash cloths with us while on the road. One wet, carried in a resealable bag, for washing & the other for drying. We also carry a small bottle or single use pouch of plastic cleaner and polish.
Tar and Bug Removal:
Never use ammonia-based cleaners, carb cleaners, gasoline or kerosene on AeroFlow plastic. Never allow brake fluid to come in contact with AeroFlow plastic. 3-M™ Corporation makes several Tar & Bug Removers for removing dried-on bugs or greasy stuff. Their "Adhesive Remover-Citrus Based" comes in a 5oz. and 18.5oz. aerosol container and their "Bug, Tar and Adhesive Remover" comes in a 1 quart squeeze container which is good for keeping in the garage.
Deep scratches can usually be rubbed out with Novus® #3 Scratch Remover. Most light scratches can be rubbed out with Novus #2, which also removes dried-on bugs, some tar and grease.
This information is from our personal experience and a basic overview of how we clean and polish our personal screens. This is not an "Official" AeroFlow doctrine.
