I don’t have a price or metric system and if I did, I would share it.
I just do a test section and see how long it takes to restore, and then glazing it is the easy part. The tough part is figuring out the cost of saferestore and time involved in cleaning the frame. The sealer is the easy part.
I usually bid these about double my wc though cause most wc’s haven’t offered this service yet. In fact, not many people even know it exists.
Interestingly it says “This system will not restore pitted anodized aluminum. Once pitting has occurred, exposing bare metal, only repainting will fix the surface. Store in a cool dry place.”
From recall, I think most of stuff round here is pitted. But thanks for the info - I’ve bookmarked it.
Yes. Very impressive. I always thought anidization of aluminum could only be done at the factory through acid bath and chem coat. And you say it looks as good as it did in your video the next day? I’ve tried a couple of things over the years that looked good for a day or two, maybe a week tops. I’ll certainly have to give this a try, as I’ve had a few customers ask me what might be done about their faded frames. I had recently been telling them “not much can be done about it”. One other question for you. What does it do to the glass if it gets on it? Can it be removed with a blade? Does it etch? My reason for asking is because I have come up against windows that had the frames treated with something that was hell to get off of the windows. Could this be the culprit?

Thanks for watching the video. I try not to get it on the glass and I don’t remember it being a real problem yet, but that may have been because we have always been cautious when applying it to frames.
Also, when you dip your microfiber in it, you ring it out fully, because all you need is the slightest amount. Therefore, we haven’t had any dripping to contend with and it isn’t messy putting it on. But you should wear gloves, even though I didn’t in the video. That video wasn’t planned out at all, we just went with it.
