NuShine II offers a graded system of polishing compounds for metal substrates that are new, oxidized, or corroded.  NuShine II polishes to a mirror image while imparting a protective chemical barrier to inhibit oxidation and corrosion.  NuShine II conforms to Boeing D6-17847, Douglas CSD-1, and AMS-1650.

  • Minimal material usage reduces polishing time.
  • Safe to all airframe parts.
  • Specialty grades address under-cast and orange peel
  • Preserves and protects the substrate from further oxidation
  • Conforms to Airframe OEM standards and specifications.

NUSHINE II is a metal polishing system that addresses varying surface conditions. So while procedural steps may be the same, the condition of your surface will dictate the grade with which you begin and the number of steps that will be required.

For example, lightly pitted, dull metal or new, clad aluminum may require NUSHINE IIF7. Polished metal with moderate to severe cloudiness and small surface scratches can be returned to shine with NUSHINE IIC or llG6.

If you’re undecided about where to start or how to move on, ask a NUVITE technician. Our job is to help you shine!

NuShine II Procedures

For clad, cast, or forged aluminum, nickel, stainless steel & other metal surfaces that are brand new, oxidized, or with atmospheric corrosion.

**Before beginning a polishing job, ANY oils, paraffin (from smoke oils), and dirt must be removed from the surface. For best results, the surface should be dry, and there should be normal humidity conditions.

  1. Begin with a new or clean wool compounding pad on a circular/rotary-type buffer.
  2. Wet a clean bristle, 1” paint brush (alternatively, you can use one finger), with a dab (¼ - ½ teaspoon) of NUSHINE II.
  3. Smear the dab of NUSHINE II approximately 1 ½” long or about half a finger length, every 3”, over an 18”-24” target polish area*
  4. Spread quickly, DO NOT allow the polish to dry.
  5. Place the clean wool compounding pad on the smeared area and smear the polish a little before turning on the buffer. We recommend running a buffer at around 2000 RPM.
  6. DO NOT LAY THE BUFFER PAD FLAT AGAINST THE POLISHING SURFACE. Tilt the pad up 10-15 degrees. Only one side of the pad should touch the surface as it spins. This helps pinpoint a specific target polish area.
  7. With the pad tilted up 10-15 degrees, move the buffer over the surface at a speed of about 1-2 seconds per foot as it spins.
  8. THE SHOULDER ZONE: Beginning top right or left of the targeted polish area*, work back & forth, right to the left within the targeted polish area. Then work the same area up and down.
  9. Light but firm pressure is all that’s needed. DO NOT PRESS HARD AGAINST THE SURFACE.
  10. On horizontal surfaces, pressure should be about the weight of the buffer.
  11. A black residue will form over the 18”-24” target polish area. Continue moving the buffer back and forth/up and down across the surface for about 30-45 seconds. The black residue will begin to lighten and disappear.
  12. Keep moving over the target polish area until the black residue is gone and the clean aluminum surface shows. **Black residue may remain around the edges of the buffed area but will be cleared as adjoining areas are buffed.
  13. If cloudiness or scratches remain, repeat the steps above until the surface is clear.
  14. Repeat the above steps with each adjoining area.
  15. When the wool compounding pad looks shiny with polish, fluff the nap by “spurring” with a buffing spur or a screwdriver blade held vertically against the face of the spinning pad.

FOR FINAL FINISH: Before starting with NUSHINE IIS, use a dry, clean microfiber cloth to clean the surface of the cutting-grade polish.

  1. Wrap a cotton flannel polishing cloth over the face of the random orbital (dual head) buffer’s foam pads.
  2. Check that any motor air vent openings are unobstructed.
  3. Wet a clean bristle, 1” paint brush (alternatively, you can use one finger), with a dab (¼ - ½ teaspoon) of NUSHINE IIS.
  4. Smear the dab of NUSHINE IIS app 1 ½” long or about half a finger length, every 6” over an 18”-24” target polish area*. NOTE: This is half the amount of polish used with other NUSHINE II grades.
  5. Spread quickly, do not allow the polish to dry.
  6. Pull cotton flannel polishing cloth tightly over the face of the buffer. Hold the flannel with your hand as you grip the buffer handle.
  7. Smear the face of the buffer around the area to be polished before turning the buffer on.
  8. Move the buffer over the surface area at a speed of about 3 seconds per foot as it spins. Use only light pressure. 
  9. THE SHOULDER ZONE: Beginning at the top right or left of the target polish area*, work back and forth to the bottom of the target polish area. Then work the same area up and down.
  10. Work the buffer AROUND raised rivets and seams in the target polish area so as not to file them down.
  11. The buffing pad can be tipped a small amount around raised rivets and panel lines to reach polish.
  12. A black residue will appear as before and begin to lighten and disappear after about 30-45 seconds. If not, too much polish may have been applied.
  13. Keep moving over the target polish area until a bright, shine appears.
  14. Work back over rivets and panel lines to clean the residue from those areas.
  15. When the designated area is clean of surface polish, stop the buffer and move/recycle the flannel to a new, clean spot of the material.
  16. Final buff over the whole area.
  17. Final finish with clean flannel polishing cloth by hand, lightly cleaning close in around rivet heads and with folded material to get against the edges of the seams.
