VRC Easy Spread n’ Peel Revive is designed to restore collections that have been regularly played and/or maintained. Like ESP Restore, ESP Revive is a primary record restoration treatment which also imparts an antistatic shield. ESP Revive is therefore also recommended for use on new records. Record production cannot be assumed to occur in pristine environments so a treatment with ESP Revive will remove any remnant production residues, including mould release, where present.
When used in conjunction with a VRC Kit, 210ml of VRC ESP is sufficient to treat up to 21 twelve inch records.
VRC ESP is a proprietary formulation designed to dissolve the impurities commonly found in a vinyl record groove. These include all manner of oils and fats, finger grease, mould and mould spores, particulate matter such as stylus dust (ie diamond dust) as well as airborne dust and danders typically attracted by static electricity. ESP emulsifies and breaks down the binders which hold this soiling to the record thereby listing these impurities into solution. The solution or slurry dries sealing the trapped impurities into a removable skin which is then peeled off to achieve a 100% removal and a pristine record groove. All ESP formulations eliminate static electricity, the primary cause of noisy records.
