ALUMABUFF® is a Fast Acting Aluminum Buffing Compound with HYPEXINE® used in cleaning and polishing aluminum pontoon boats. Hypexine helps leach the stains to the surface for easier removal.
ALUMABUFF® is the easiest and fastest way to clean and polish aluminum of the stains, streaks and white cloud that plague pontoon boats.
ALUMABUFF® is waterbased making it much cleaner to work with. It can be used by hand or with a LINEAR BUFFER® and ALUMABUFF PAD KIT® to save time and effort. ALUMABUFF® makes it easy to polish and clean aluminum pontoon boats, with less time, labour and effort. Say goodbye to the ugly heavy discoloration of your aluminum boat and restore its shine with ALUMABUFF®.
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® is a fast acting buffing compound for polishing aluminum boats and pontoons. It would normally take 10 to 15 hours to polish the water stains off of this 22 ft Manitou pontoon. With ALUMABUFF®, you can do it in under 1 hour. ALUMABUFF® uses the latest water based technology for superior results and it’s a green cleaner. When you use ALUMABUFF® with a LINEAR BUFFER® and the special ALUMABUFF® pads, you can polish your aluminum pontoons in one pass. There are no silicones or waxes so you can easily and quickly pressure wash or rinse the residue away. And there you have it. The aluminum is restored to its original finish. This pontoon is now ready to be protected with ALUMETRON® and VS721® to keep it looking shiny.
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.

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.
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
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.
ALUMABUFF® Removes Oxidation, Stains, Tarnish, Streaks & Discoloration.
Use with LINEAR BUFFER® or By Hand. HYPEXINE® lifts stains to the surface for easy removal.
Clean aluminum. Remove marine growth with ALGEX® and dirt and pollutants with BOAT CLEAN PLUS®. Do Not Buff if ALUMABUFF® dries out. Re-lubricate by spraying with water.
MACHINE BUFFING: Use a LINEAR BUFFER® with an ALUMABUFF PAD®. Apply ALUMABUFF® evenly to a 2 to 3 sq. ft. area and to the pad with a paint brush. Turn on the LINEAR BUFFER® and apply to the aluminum surface while increasing pressure. Slowly move the machine from the top to the bottom, always keeping the length of the pad parallel to the grain of the aluminum. Repeat until the stains and streaks are removed. Continue to the adjacent section, maintaining a slight overlap. Rinse away residue or power wash.
HAND BUFFING: Apply ALUMABUFF® evenly to a 1 sq. ft. section and to a MARINE POWER MITT® or soft cloth pad with a paint brush. Buff the aluminum surface in a back and forth motion parallel to the direction of the grain until the stains and streaks are removed. Continue to the adjacent section, maintaining a slight overlap. Rinse away residue or power wash.
PROTECTION: After restoring your boat or pontoons, protect the surface against future staining, oxidation and salt damage for up to
5 years with ALUMETRON®. Apply VS721® below the waterline to reduce marine fouling and to improve the performance and fuel economy of your boat.
