About this deal

Brasso, on account of its ammonia content, has been used as a de-coppering agent in rifle barrels to remove copper fouling. As a result of this, in 1913 the case was taken to the Railway and Canal Commissioners for a decision.

Using Brasso to clean and polish grotty metal surfaces is super easy, and doesn’t cost you a fortune!Gadgetcare is a versatile, non-abrasive gel that can be used on everything from LCD TV screens, laptop screens, computers, smart phones and PDAs. The label of Australian Brasso lists "Liquid Hydrocarbons 630g/L; Ammonia 5g/L", whereas the material safety data sheet for Brasso in North America lists: isopropyl alcohol 3–5%, ammonia 5–10%, silica powder 15–20% and oxalic acid 0–3% as the ingredients. Brasso Liquid Metal Polish can be used on your Brass, Copper, Stainless Steel, Chrome and Pewter objects for a longer lasting shine.

After a hearing lasting two days the commissioners decided in favour of the railway companies and Brasso remained classed as a dangerous substance for the purposes of railway transport.And if your Brasso cleaning cloth goes dry, add more liquid Brasso to it or use a new piece of wadding. Perform a small patch test to make sure the Brasso doesn’t mark or stain the surface you’re about to polish. The online data sheet for Brasso wadding in the UK lists the ingredients as C8–10 Alkane/Cycloalkane/Aromatic Hydrocarbons, Quartz, C14–18 and C16–18 unsaturated Fatty acids, Kaolinite, Aqua, Ammonium Hydroxide and Iron Hydroxide. You’ve got to put some elbow grease into the cleaning exercise – it’s not just going to work on its own.

The formula changed in 2008 to comply with US volatile organic compounds law and the metal bottle was replaced by a plastic one. This classification allowed the railway companies to charge more for distributing Brasso around the country.Brasso has been successfully used to take minor (white) heat marks out of French polished wooden surfaces. Continue to do this until the patch is clean – you might need to apply more pressure to certain grimey patches.

This, in turn, means that you can quickly remove the wadding from the tin and use it straight away to polish a surface.The formula now conforms with the safety regulations in most countries, but is essentially the same formula Grandma used. Keep an eye out for a blue and white striped pot that has a big red label on the front, with the name ‘Brasso’ on it.
