    Question What gives TUF SHINE its SHINE?

    All,

    Wanted to redo my TUF SHINE application, since I rushed it, and didn't clean the tires enough.

    When applying it, it seems to have a "polycrylic" feel to it (almost like water-based polyurethane used on floors). Does anyone know? I am trying to find a "quicker" way to take it off rather than the "clean, scrub, do again after a week" routine I've heard mentioned here.

    Google search for a MSDS found nothing.

    TIA...Eric

    You tell us.

    You rushed the initial application & it didn't turn out right. Now you want a short cut to fix it? Maybe just follow what TS recommends and you'll be good.

    Thanks for your reply. Only one tire looks poor, the rest are OK.

    Don't know what it's made of, huh? I'm assuming acrylic based, since that's what Mckee's is made of.

    I’m going to take the ol’ proverbial
    “stab-in-the-dark”, and say that it
    contains, among other substances:

    • a high-purity PMMA

    • some small % of a UV stabilizer
    (ethyl-2,4,6-trimethylbenzoylphenyl-
    phosphinate, comes to mind).

    Yes...it is out of this world, IMO.

    Tuf Shine tells you to only use regular car soap to make the coating last. I would use a high ph cleaner with a scrub brush on your machine of choice. Any rotary/DA/Drill polisher with a scrub brush and harsh cleaner should take it off pretty quickly.

    Thanks much...will get a chance to fix up this tire next weekend (other "less important" projects this past weekend, unfortunately, IMO).

    Re: What gives TUF SHINE its SHINE?

    I have found that there are not many very good ways to remove these tire coatings. The TS cleaner does not really remove it. The M37 cleaner does not really remove the M37 tire coating either. Tarminator will do a number on it, but not totally remove it. GG Rubber Prep won't take it off either.

    It took repeated cleanings over 2-3 weeks to remove the M37 coating the last time I reapplied. You can usually reapply it once or twice. After that the recoating will look like crap and you'll need to strip it back down

    That sucks to hear... The TW Endura Tire Coating can be re applied over itself an infinite amount of times and never looks like crap. The only bad part is Iím down to my last bottle and Iíll eventually have to switch to these other tire coatings which from reading all the negatives seem to pale in comparison.What gives TUF SHINE its SHINE?
