Re: hardware corrosion

I've just been using this stuff called Seapower Metal Polish. Seems to work really well.

Re: hardware corrosion

Definitely depends on what the material is. Chrome plated bronze, stainless, and polished aluminum have different modes of corrosion but look similar.

Re: hardware corrosion

Chrome is an element. If you find any mechanical abrasions or a poor plating process that produced fractures and flaking, re-chrome. Use a plater that understands the materials involved.

Re: hardware corrosion

How bad is it? I use Nev-r-dull for general metal polishing. Nothing is going to take pitting out, however.
