What is ALUMABUFF® and How to use it?

ALUMABUFF® is water based and free rinsing so the restored surface is ready for a protective coating like ALUMETRON®, without the necessity of removing residual wax, silicone or oil. It can be used by hand or with a LINEAR BUFFER® (Recommended) to save time and labour.

It's formulated to quickly and easily remove stains, tarnish, white streaks, oxidation, corrosion and cloud from mill finished aluminum without the necessity of messy and dirty metal polish or rubbing compounds. Aluminum can be cleaned and brightened in 1/10 the time and with less material, saving time, labour and money.

Pontoon boats look amazing when they are new and shiny. Unfortunately the aluminum pontoons begin to tarnish and stain from the water, pollutants and atmosphere. The questions that most pontoon boat owners ask are: 1. How to clean aluminum? 2. How to polish aluminum? The old fashioned way of cleaning aluminum and polishing aluminum with acid aluminum cleaner and abrasive aluminum polish is very labour intensive, time consuming, dirty, hard work. ALUMABUFF® works chemically as well as mechanically and when used with the special ALUMABUFF PADS and a LINEAR BUFFER®, restores the aluminum pontoon to its like new appearance in no time.

ALUMABUFF®Will Add Value To Your Pontoon Boats

Even luxury pontoon boats and expensive triton pontoon boats lose their value if the pontoons are tarnished and stained. Clean, shiny pontoons can easily add 10% or more to the resale price of a pontoon boat and of course, you enjoy greater pride of ownership when your boat looks pristine. The best way for cleaning aluminum and polishing aluminum boats and aluminum pontoons is with ALUMABUFF®. The HYPEXINE® in the product leaches the stains to the surface, where they can be rapidly removed with the special ALUMABUFF PAD without having to grind away the surface. The restored surface maintains the mill finish your pontoon boat had when it was new, making ongoing maintenance much easier.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • No. Other materials will not work efficiently with ALUMABUFF and may cause damage to the aluminum. These pads were specially engineered to work with ALUMABUFF.

  • No. Rotary and orbital buffers and grinders will cut away the surface metal and change the appearance to chrome. Chrome finished aluminum takes 10 times more labour to achieve. Linear buffers move back and forth, parallel to the grain of the aluminum so there is much less cutting of the surface metal and the original silver mill finish is maintained

  • You can use ALUMABUFF by hand but it takes much longer. We highly recommend a Linear Buffer. A linear buffing machine and the proper pad will save you a lot of time and labour. A Linear Buffer moves back and forth at up to 2,500, 16 inch, strokes per minute. How long would it take you to move your hand back and forth in 16 inch strokes?A machine will also give you more even, consistent results. If you decide to do it by hand we recommend using a MARINE POWER MITT®.

  • No. ALUMABUFF is a chemical cleaner that uses mechanical buffing as a cleaning aid. Rubbing compounds and metal polishes are designed to cut away the stained or oxidized surface to reveal a new surface, but this changes the appearance of your marine aluminum.

  • No. ALUMABUFF is water based and does not remove so much of the metal so the black residue is much less and is contained on the surface and on the pad.

  • Rubbing compounds and sandpaper or metal polishes are highly abrasive and are designed to grind away and remove the surface layer of the metal. Grinding and polishing is tedious labour intensive work. ALUMABUFF is a chemical cleaner with a buffing aid to accelerate the cleaning action.

  • Yes. See the video.

  • Yes. When used as directed, All Aurora Boat Care Products are sold with a 100% Customer Satisfaction or Your Money Back Guarantee. You can use all of our products with complete confidence.

  • Yes, Ask your pontoon boat dealer. The will be happy to help you out and they have the equipment to lift your boat off the trailer so they can get underneath. If they’re not familiar with how to use ALUMABUFF they can call Customer Service at 1-866-214-3444 for help and technical advice.

  • Ask the Skipper. He’s always ready to help.

  • An average pontoon will require 1 bottle per pontoon. If it’s really badly stained or heavily oxidized or oversized, you may need more.

  • Depending on how you maintain them. Staining, streaking and corrosion is caused from use of improper chemicals or pollutants in the environment. Use only cleaners and protectors recommended for aluminum and wash them on a regular basis to keep them looking new. You can also coat them with ALUMETRON® and that will protect them against environmental damage and staining for up to 5 years.

  • ALUMETRON® will keep them looking shiny and new for up to 5 years, even in salt water.

  • No. Use ALGEX® first to remove the growth.

  • Apply VS721 at the beginning of each season. It’s perfectly clear and makes it difficult for algae to attach and Zebra or Quaga Mussels can’t attach. Many areas prohibit the transport of boats from a contaminated body of water to their lakes in order to prevent the spread of these invasive species.

  • Three years.

  • No. It restores the original factory finish.

  • Yes. It’s water based, biodegradable and does not contain petroleum distillates or VOC’s.

  • The ideal temperature is between 50°F and 75°F. If too cold it becomes sticky and hard to work and if too hot it dries too quickly requiring constant spraying with water. It’s also best not to do this in direct sunlight. Early morning or late afternoon or evening are best.

  • If ALUMABUFF dries out, the chemicals stop working and you are left using only the buffing aid. This will over polish the metal. Keep a spray bottle of water handy and moisten it when required or apply fresh ALUMABUFF. Do not skimp on ALUMABUFF. Let the chemical do the work for you.

  • Yes. We sell them in a kit of 3 replacement pads.

  • Areas that are inaccessible with the buffer will have to be done by hand. We recommend using a MARINE POWER MITT® for any hand work. It saves time and labour and will give you more consistent results.
