EASTWOOD’S METAL-PROTECT provides a protective clear coating that forms a barrier between your freshly polished metal and the elements.

Lasting up to three months, Metal-Protect™ is ideal for wheels, valve covers, air cleaners and much more. Compatible with most metals, including; aluminum, steel, copper and brass.


  1. Thoroughly clean and dry metal surfaces before applying Metal-Protect.
  2. Hold can approximately 8” from surface to be coated. Apply 2-3 light coats waiting 5 minutes between each coat. Do not saturate surface – a light mist is all that is needed.
  3. Allow Metal-Protect to dry for at least 15-20 minutes before moving parts. Metal-Protect is self-leveling and movement could alter the leveling process. Full cure will occur in 45-60 minutes, depending on conditions.
  4. Apply only to metal surfaces, if you apply to unintended areas; clean up immediately with a dry clean rag.

IMPORTANT: To prevent clogging, after each use, invert the can and spray a few short blasts to clear the valve.
