MICRO-MESH® CUSHIONED ABRASIVES
MICRO-MESH® THE NON-ABRASIVE ABRASIVE


Micro-Mesh® is what we like to call a non-abrasive abrasive. It is considered a cushioned abrasive in fact.
Conventional sandpaper is designed to be aggressive so that it will dig deeply. In its manufacture the crystals are electrically charged so that they will stand up. They are locked into a hard resin and when you apply the paper to a surface it will literally tear in and remove the substrate of the material you are sanding. The crystals cut in a negative raking motion, leaving inconsistent scratch patterns.
Micro-Mesh® does the opposite. The backing is long lasting cloth to which an ultra-flexible cushioning layer is applied. This cushioning layer will determine how far forward you can push crystals before they will penetrate the cushioning layer. On top of this layer, we have a very resilient glue, not a hard resin, but a completely flexible glue that will hold the crystals while allowing it to move and rotate. The crystals can turn in any direction without coming loose. When you start to apply pressure to sand with Micro-Mesh®, the crystals will go into the cushioning layer while beginning to cut a bit. If you push harder, they will go further into the cushioning layer, which serves as a safety valve. It determines how much pressure you can exert in a doward direction. Instead of a deep scratch that sandpaper makes, Micro-Mesh® produce a refined scratch that is close to a RMS of 1.0. The cushioning layer also allows the crystals to cut with a planing motion that leaves an extremely consistent scratch pattern and allows you to achieve extraordinary levels of gloss.
Where conventional abrasives will take surfaces down 2 or 3 thousandths (.002 or .003), Micro-Mesh® will take it down one ten thousandth (.0001) or less.

 CANOPY CLEANERS AND POLISHES

cleaners.jpg (8613 bytes)Conventional Plastic Cleaners
Plastic-cleaning products have often proven to be less than satisfactory.
Existing cleaners are often messy to use (especially creams and pastes) and require several steps to apply. They have to be rubbed on and buffed. They often leave a sticky, tacky or oily residue. And, in many cases, they're abrasive, leaving small lines in the plastic.
Dissatisfied with these cleaners, many people resort to products that are alcohol, ammonia, or petroleum-based. Unfortunately, these products can dry out plastic, leading to cracking and
discoloration over time.
Using the products specifically designed for acrylic (plastic) canopies, windshields and windows
can help to prevent these problems and even improve some  conditions.

New Sontara window wipes
M
ade of a proprietary blend of fibers that are softer than most conventional wipes. Since many scratches are caused by grit and dirt already on the surface of the window, this product features aperatures that help pick up and remove dirt effectively. Using LP Aero Plastics Acrylic Polish and Sealant to "float up" the dirt before wiping is the best way to minimize the risk of scratching.

Swirl Free Finish on Black Paint
Headlight Restoration

http://www.cyclotoolmakers.com/support.php
The Cyclo Orbital Polisher has been polishing planes, automobiles, and RVs since 1953, when they received patents on their orbital polishing mechanisms. That same year, the company received approval from the US government to polish the military’s aircraft and missiles. The Cyclo Polisher is still used today to polish the Air Force One fleet. With a resume like that, we just had to see what the Cyclo is all about. The Cyclo Polisher is the only dual-head polisher on the market. Both heads move in an orbital motion, counter-clockwise. The idea is to simulate hand polishing but at a much faster rate. Going over a scratch or swirl with both heads ensures that you are attacking it from all sides, so to speak. No matter what angle you look at the paint, you will not see the former blemish. It’s the fool-proof polisher!
TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE
The synchronized movement of the Cyclo Polisher’s dual orbiting heads most effectively mirrors the overlapping circular motion of fine hand polishing. The result is a perfectly balanced machine that produces less vibration and a mirror-like finish without swirl marks or risk of damage to paint.
Because of its dual headed orbital design, its polishing heads do not remain in one spot—even if the polisher is held in a stationary position. As a result, there is no heat build up. No burning, marring, gouging, or swirl marks can occur. Even a novice can produce professional-looking results without the risk of damaging a vehicle’s trim pieces or finish.

http://www.cyclotoolmakers.com/index.php
 Model 5 Dual Head Orbital Polisher/Scrubber/Finisher/Shampooer, 115VAC
The synchronized movement of the Cyclo mirrors that of hand rubbing – an overlapping circular motion. And the Cyclo’s twin heads don’t
spin in one place, so there’s no threat of heat build-up or burn marks. The Cyclo continues to be the polisher of choice for aircraft. In fact it's currently used to polish the Air Force One fleet and most major airline fleets worldwide. The Cyclo delivers a superior polish on mainstream products such as automobiles, boats, even Airstream™ RVs. Car dealerships, automobile detailers, car washes, and fleet users all rely
on the Cyclo to keep their vehicles looking like new.

VIBRATION ELIMINATION SYSTEM
Cyclo Toolmakers, Inc. Vibration Elimination System (VES™) is available exclusively on Cyclo Dual Head Orbital Polishers and is composed of a completely redesigned counterweight and precision matched, weighted inserts. Prior to this innovation the Cyclo Model 5 polisher imparted only about one-tenth the vibration of traditional rotary and dual action polishers. With the introduction of the new Cyclo VES, the amount of vibration is reduced even further and nearly eliminated.

Cyclo VES Counterweight: Completely reengineered, the Cyclo VES counterweight comes installed on all new Cyclo Model 5 Polishers.
VES will be available for Model 5C and 6CE polishers starting in 2009.
Cyclo VES Weighted Inserts: By simply matching the correct VES weighted insert to the intended attachment system configuration -
head assemblies with Rubber Pad Holders or bonnets, carpet and scrub brushes, Quick Connect Adapters with DoublePrecision™ pads, or other Genuine Cyclo attachments - you can nearly eliminate all vibration.

Premium Protection for Sailplane Finishes
New improved Wx/Block now features the latest nanotechnology to enhance the gloss and longevity
of sailplane gel coat finishes.
This  premium finish protection contains maximum levels of UV protection along with gloss enhancing and anti-static surfacing agents for gel coat . finishes. Wx/Block helps maintain a high level of sailplane gel coat integrity by reducing the effects of environmental exposure.

Nanotechnology Improves Performance

The inclusion of nanoscale particles in Wx/Block and Wx/Seal improves smoothing and levels the microscopic inconsistencies on gel coat surfaces.Leveling of the surface topography results in a higher gloss and better sealing of the micro-porosity present in all gel coat finishes. The nanoscale formulation improves the refectivity of gel coat surfaces resulting in increased gloss values and provides better retention of UV active inhibition for improved performance.

Gel Coat and the Sun

Gel coat finishes are subject to chemical processes driven by exposure to ultraviolet solar radiation ,this incudes photo-initiation and photo-oxidation. The process of photo-initiation causes chemical changes in a micro-thin surface layer of gel coat while photo-oxidation degrades surface molecules.Sunlight and reactive atmospheric compounds will yellow and embrittle gel coat over the length of exposure. While traditional hard wax or consumer type waxes will polish gel coat, their UV protection is limited. Wx/Block’s solution is to provide active UV protection on the surface for an extended period of time.
 

Wings & Wheels made an exclusive agreement with the manufacturers of Wx/Block
to make this great product for sailplane owners and owners of other *gel coated composite aircraft.
Wx/Block and Wx/Seal products are available ONLY through Wings & Wheels

This might explain why the only people who don't recommend Wx/Block and Wx/Seal are some glider products dealers who cannot offer it!
Used and recommend by hundreds of satisfied customers,
sailplane repair shops and gliderport operators.
* Though Wx/Block was developed to improve the durability and life span of sailplane gelcoats it is also a terrific product to use on other materials and finishes. Wx/Block provides UV and moisture protection not commonly found in other waxes and polishes.

Wx/Block and Wx/Seal are specially formulated to protect Sailplane Finishes. The surface protection contains maximum levels of UV inhibition, along with gloss enhancing and anti-static surfacing agents SPECIALLY designed for gel coat finishes. Wx/Block was designed to help maintain a high level of gel coat integrity by reducing the effects of environmental exposure. Wx/Block is completely safe for all gel coats, polyester based finished (Prestec or Duratec) or urethane paint finishes.
The Wx/Block block system is extremely easy to apply, just wipe on and hand buff for an outstanding gloss finish. Wx/Block is also perfect for daily clean-up and bug removal.



Wx/Block and Wx/Seal is an easy to use 2 part system. First, Wx/Seal is applied as a surface sealing and  cleaning compound, which conditions the surface. All Gel coats contain microscopic porosity. The Wx/Seal cleans residual dirt and wax from the surface and seals these porosity's actually helping the Wx/Block adhere to the surface. Wx/Seal may be applied by hand or if you prefer by machine. Finally, Wx/Block is applied by hand which contains the UV Blocking and Anti-Static agents which help to protect the finish. These agents also produce lower surface tension than standard waxes and reduce the severity of bug sticks and dust accumulation.

USER COMMENTS:
Not meaning this as advertisement but I want you to know what we have observed
on a refinished LS-3A. One expects UV to attack the upper surfaces of a
glider. Normally, the upper surfaces tend to fade and "yellow" more than lower
surfaces. The owner of this LS-3 used "weather block" on the upper surfaces
only and we can see...with no doubt, that the upper surfaces are in better
condition after about 5 years. The lower (un treated) surfaces are now an
"off-white" (or yellowed slightly) while the treated upper surface is a nice
"blue-white" . You can come to any conclusion you want...but this Weather
Block" stuff does make a difference in protecting a fiberglass Gel-Coated
finish....End of advertisement...Regards, Bob


Hard Bar (Wax?)
You may hear a lot about "Hard Waxing" but what most don't know is that hard bar was is really not intended as a wax at all, hard bars do contain a wax as a base but these are really polishing compounds, the wax used is there to contain the fine abrasives used for polishing, much the same as "Jeweler's rouge" . Applied with a machine only, on sailplanes a special edge buffer is used and it is still a favorite method by many repair shops. Machine polishing hard bars do provide excellent  polishing,  and provide a high shine since the surface is highly polished to a super smooth finish. Hard Bars however provide little real moisture protection and will offer virtually nothing in the way of UV protection. Each Bar should be enough for complete polishing of one or two gliders when properly applied. The special edge type buffer is required for proper application of all hard bar waxes. Hard Bar Finishing should always be followed up with a minimum of a good wax for moisture protection and for the best UV and moisture protection with a product like or at best, the Wx/Seal and  Wx/Block products.

 FYI: Removing old tape residue

I don't offer this since it is flammable and could be classified as "hazardous" for shipping (extra cost to you) you can almost always find it locally at most auto parts stores, hardware stores and paint suppliers for about ten bucks a quart. Some companies offer their own "brand" like NAPA Auto Suppliers. This is the BEST adhesive cleaner I have ever used for removing old tapes, tape residue and is completely safe for almost any painted or gel-coated finish.
Buy it locally.. always keep some on hand!
