VRC Easy Spread n’ Peel Refresh formulation is designed for subsequent treatments of records that have previously been treated with ESP Restore or ESP Revive.
Records accumulate contaminants simply as a consequence of being played and through exposure to the air. As well as repairing the anti-static shield, ESP Refresh offers a mild level of clean suitable for records that no longer have mould, dust, fats and binders etc present in the grooves.
210ml of VRC ESP is sufficient to treat up to 21 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.
