Sharkhide Aluminum Polish,Anyone?

I did searches on forums in many ways, and did not find anyone speaking about SHARKHIDE ALUMINUM POLISH

The website says "
is a very high grade, single step polish that will leave a swirl
free mirror finish when used on aluminum. It can also be used on copper, brass, stainless, steel,
fiberglass, as well as removing scratches from plexiglass, and lexan windshields. It's also
recommended for removing blueing from chrome and stainless exhaust."

Has anyone tried this? I realize clearcoat will still have to be removed, could this give a nicer look to the AS that I am too lazy to C7,S,C9 and all those other polish names- not to mention the different cyclo and buffers etc that would have to be purchased?
Maybe I will try a small patch.

Asking about Polish, not sealant

Yes, I read all that, I even asked my question there, no reply--so started this thread. Wondering about the Polish though, not sealant. Wondering why no one is talking about it. Since there are so many hard working experts here just thought I'd ask if anyone has tried this product that sounds a bit easier than the tried and true way.

It's not a polish, it's a protectant.

You still would need to polish or prepare your rig to the level of shinny you are looking for prior to applying the product.

Notice the name of the product "Shark Hide protectant" not Shark Hide Polish.

I am considering applying this product to the top end caps where all my plastic coat has failed.

It is really polish not sealant that I am refering to


Scroll down on their website, re-read the quote I have from their site--gosh and golly they in fact have a product that polishes aluminum ---the sealant just happens to be the first product on the page.

Just trying to find out if anyone has used the polish--I have seen the links to the sealant usage and testing--unable to find anyone that used the polish.
How bout this, I will post a pic of the container for those that would like to see the container.

Sharkhide Polish

Hi there,
I'm so sorry I missed your posts about the Sharkhide Polish.
You are correct that we do offer a metal polish as well as an aluminum cleaner and metal protectant. I realize your looking for somone on here that's used it before, but if you send me your email address (to, I'll forward you a little video clip of the polish in action.

When I had my Camp-Inn teardrop that was one of the products that folks were using. My caveat from what I understand is that it is a good product for aluminum that is RAW. Watch their videos where they show using it on a pontoon boat float. There is no coating on those. So if you have an older AS that can be polished to a mirror shine then it might be something to try on a small spot or piece of scrap. On a newer model that still has the surface 'clear coat' I don't know that it would be a good idea. Again only testing would give a good answer.
