Shot in the dark here, a guy from work was showing me a product for protecting aluminium/alloy surfaces, its from the car detailing world but originally came from the aerospace industry. Its called Jet I believe but I can't find it anywhere. I would ask him but he's gone on holiday.

Not what you're after specifically, but Klasse AIO (also known as Carlac 68 ) is an Acrylic polish that can be used on chrome and alluminium as well as paint. It is self sealing to an extent but used with their high gloss sealant gives a bullet proof finish.

Yup, an acrylic too :wink:

Personally i find these products harder to work with than a more conventional polish and wax, but because they lack the natural carnauba of a wax (which is very pale yellow) they do not mute the flake of a light metallic such as silver. They are also offer very long lasting protection, up to 12 months if properly sealed.

I'll post how I get on with it if your interested, its to protect my aluminium frame after I give it another polish. Had a quick google of the product and there seems to be lots of happy customers.
