Cleaning Oxidation from Aluminum Snowmobile Parts

Snowmobile aluminum cleaner SledBrite Aluma Kleen is used to remove oxidation from aluminum snowmobile ski attachments.

This video demonstrates how to clean, remove oxidation and discoloration and brighten aluminum parts, including ski attachments, on a snowmobile with the SledBrite Aluma Kleen aluminum cleaner. Prior to removing oxidation from your aluminum you must first remove any grease and surface build up. This is important as the aluminum cleaner needs to come into contact with the actual surface of the aluminum without any barriers which would prohibit the deoxidizing action.

Aluminum naturally oxidizes and will begin to look dingy, splotchy and discolored if not maintained properly. Snowmobile aluminum has a tendency to oxidize much faster because of it's exposure to the elements, moisture and road salt. The SledBrite Aluma Kleen is a very safe, easy to use product to clean and brighten aluminum and metal surfaces on your sled, trailer and accessories.

Simply spray SledBrite Aluma Kleen on, wait for it to foam up (taking anywhere from 15 seconds to a few minutes, depending on the severity of oxidation) and wipe or rinse off. It is also recommended to use a brush, not to scrub with pressure, but to spread the product around to ensure even coverage. Not only is the SledBrite Aluma Kleen a fast acting, biodegradable formula that wipes or rinses away clean, but it also contains corrosion inhibitors to help prevent rust and protect your sleds metal and aluminum.
