Neutralising and Cleaning Concentrate
EZPrep (pronounced ‘Easyprep’) is a highly concentrated, biodegradable, free-rinsing cleaner and acid neutralizer for metals to help prepare surfaces before applying the coating. EZPrep is formulated to allow for strong and effective cleaning without environmental impact. It is suitable for use on all surfaces and leaves a neutral surface when rinsed well.
As a Cleaner - Mix 1 : 100 with clean water
Mix 50mL to 100mL of concentrate to 5 to 10 litres of water to clean chalky oxidation from powder coated metals. It emulsifies grease, oils, dirt and grime and can be used as an all-purpose household cleaner.
NOTE: EZPrep does NOT remove tarnish or rust from copper, brass, stainless steel or other metals. Use Copper Cleaning Gel or Stainless Steel Rust Remover for these purposes. (Refer below)
As an Acid Neutraliser - Mix 1 : 4
Mix 1 part EZPrep with 4 parts water, apply to unpainted metal to neutralize after acid washing or using acid based polishes.
EZPrep is an acid neutralizer and will neutralize metal after acid washing or using acid based polishes. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth.
Available in 60mL, 100mL, 250mL,500mL and 1,000mL bottles
IMPORTANT: It is important that if there is any likelihood of acid traces (e.g. finger prints) being on the surface then all bare metal surfaces need to be neutralised, rinsed well and dried. Then wiped with denatured alcohol just prior to coating.

CCG - HD Copper Gel
Heavy Duty Copper Cleaning Gel
Everbrite™ HD Gel Copper Cleaner is a unique solution which has been blended specifically to remove tarnish and oxides from copper based metals.
Everbrite™ HD Gel will cling on copper roofs, copper walls or other copper preventing run-off. Use on Copper Roofs, Copper Gutters, Copper Hoods, Post Caps, Fireplaces & other copper that is difficult to clean.
It is strong enough to restore tarnished and stained copper back to it’s original copper shine – but is also environmentally safe as well – non-toxic, non-hazardous – it will not harm shrubs or plants.
Comes in a wide mouth container for easy access. Washes off with water. A 500mL pottle will clean years old tarnish from about 1½ square metres of heavily tarnished copper.
IMPORTANT – As HD-CCG contains traces of acid the metal surface must then be neutralised using EZPrep solution and rinsed well. (or mix up baking soda and water to make your own homemade neutraliser)
HD-CCG is available in 500mL and 1,000mL plastic pottles.
MAAS Concentrated Crème Polish - Fast and Easy
MAAS is a powerful wipe-on, wipe-off formula which instantly removes years of residue, rust, tarnish and oxidation from all metals and more. MAAS Creme is concentrated, just a dab polishes large areas.
MAAS handles the toughest jobs yet it is gentle enough for delicate antiques. Use on many surfaces:
Silver – Brass – Copper – Aluminium – Chrome – Stainless – Gold – Pewter – Nickel – Platinum – Bronze – Glass – Crystal – Enamel – Porcelain – Fibreglass – Plexiglas – Magnesium – Dirigold – Dirilyte
As MAAS polishes do NOT contain any acid so there is NO neutralizing necessary before coating with ProtectaClear or Everbrite but wiping well with a solvent is still required to remove the polish residue to ensure proper adhesion.
HD-CCG is available in 2oz (50mL) or 4oz (120mL) tubes
