2. How do I use White Diamond products?

White Diamond Metals Polish can be applied by hand or by using a compound buffer (2800-3200 RPM). You will notice that the product will separate when not in use. It separates due to its formulation, which includes its jewelers’ rouge base, which is the white part at the bottom, petroleum distillates and a wax formulation, which is at the top of the bottle.

We use white jewelers rouge in our product, which is the least abrasive of the rouges. The oily petroleum distillate as the polish carrier enables you to spread the product over a larger surface area without evaporating like other polishes, which use a thin mineral spirit as the polish carrier. To use it, shake the bottle vigorously until it comes off the bottom of the bottle and continue shaking it throughout use.


2a. Applying White Diamond products by hand.

Since White Diamond Metals Polish is a cleaner, polisher and protector all in one, you do not have to clean the surface before application.

Apply a small amount on a soft cloth (terry cloth works best!) and rub it on, going with the grain of the metal if necessary. Allow the product to turn gray. The product needs to sit for at least one minute or until it is tacky to the touch, similar to a paint wax. Application with the same cloth for each application is recommended, however, when wiping off use a clean area of the cloth or a clean cloth. ENJOY YOUR SHINE! IT WILL LAST A LONG TIME! Easier IS better, isn’t it?

2b. Applying White Diamond Metals Polish with a compound buffer.

Since White Diamond Metals Polish is a cleaner, polisher and protector all in one, you do not have to clean the surface before application. Apply a small amount onto the buffing pad (sheep’s wool is recommended) and bring the surface to a shine, which will appear in seconds, going with the grain of the metal if necessary.

If covering a large surface area you may want to pressure wash the diamond plate area to remove the product from the surface and the crevices. If removing by hand, just wipe off the residue and you’re done! With just one use, you can see that White Diamond Metals Polish applies, removes oxidation from the surface, and wipes off easier than any other competing product!

4. How does White Diamond Metals Polish work on diamond plate?

White Diamond Metals Polish is an excellent choice to use on diamond plate. If you have a small surface area to clean, simply apply White Diamond Metals Polish in an “X” pattern, let it gray up and then simply wipe it off. If you have a large surface area to clean, it is recommended that you use a compound buffer (2800-3200 RPM) and after you have applied the product, and buffed it to a shine, go over it with a pressure washer to get into all of the grooves in the plate. It is truly remarkable! It has never been so easy to clean ALL of the diamond plate and not have to work hours on end to get into all of the grooves!

11. Why does cloth turn black when White Diamond Metals Polish is applied?

    Do you recommend using additional wax on polished aluminum left out in the elements I polished an airplane with your product looks great about to put it in the elements wondering if wax will help

    1. Good Morning Iain, White Diamond Metal Polish is loaded with sealant (Wax) so there is no benefit to applying any further waxes to the surface. Would be great to see some photographs.

  2. Jeff says:

    Can White Diamond be used as an additive to tumbler media to polish parts?

    1. Good Morning Jeff, this is something that we have never trialed and it would be interesting to establish how this system works before advising correctly.

  3. Austin says:

    I’m using it on our FD diamond plate and it stains this black bumper gaurd …some sort of hard rubber, is there anything I can use to clean it off?

    1. Try our quick detailer.. In future if you apply our White Diamond Dressing onto the rubber first, any overspray that goes onto the rubber, will simply rub off with ease

      1. Michael Allen says:

        Can you use White Diamond metal polish on ceramic coated exhaust headers?

        1. Good Morning, as long as you are polishing actual metal, this will be perfectly fine. When you mention ceramic coated, are these factory coated or have you applied ceramic sealant coating. The White Diamond will remove the coating and polish the metal

  4. Diamond Dave says:

    I’m cleaning up my brother’s RoadKing & I AM AMAZED! He lives on a mountain that is a ski resort so it’s always damp, cold, & windy and the roads are salted alot more than usual so it’s taken it’s toll on the aluminum & chrome. Rust on chrome and white rust on aluminum along with chrome flaking from oxidation getting underneath. I used it on the rims first and it instantly took the white rust off of them just from wiping by hand, I couldn’t believe it! I then used a buffer and you have to look closely to even see any of the spots where the chrome came off so…now I’ve done every piece of metal on the bike that had a shine and some that didn’t and I would say it looks almost as good as it did when he got it! Thank you for making this polish, I’ll never use any others again!!

    1. Thankyou for the great comments. It is an awesome product, also great to restore headlights, grp or perspex to remove scratches. Try on the kitchen sink or jewellery such as gold and silver and you will realise how versatile this product is.
