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. Use ESP Revive to remove remnant residues from the production process including mould release.
500ml of VRC ESP will treat up to 50 twelve inch records when used in conjunction with a VRC 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.
