VRC ESP 78 formulation is a specialist preparation for use on shellac 78 RPM records (78s). Note, care should be taken not to confuse ESP formulations as only ESP 78 with a blue colour may safely be applied to 78 records. ESP 78 is safe to apply to modern, microgroove records (33s and 45s).
ESP 78 may be applied to ten inch 78s with either the VRC System Kit or Mini Kit. The VRC Stack Rack accommodates all size records and in any combination.
210ml of VRC ESP is sufficient to treat up to 21 twelve inch records when used in conjunction with a VRC System Kit.
VRC ESP is a proprietary formulation designed to dissolve the mixture of dust and dirt commonly found in a vinyl record groove. This mix will include all manner of oils and fats, finger grease, mould and mould spores, particulate matter such as stylus dust (ie diamond dust) and airborne dust. ESP emulsifies and breaks down the binders which hold this soiling to the record. Once the binders are broken down the soiling is dissolved into solution. This solution – or slurry – dries sealing the trapped impurities into a removable skin which can then be peeled off for a 100% clean. All ESP formulations create a barrier to static electricity, the primary cause of noisy records.
