VRC Easy Spread n’ Peel Restore is a slower drying formulation designed to deliver a premium deep clean for LPs with particularly ingrained challenges including deep seated mould growths. These growths may cause mistracking – also caused by physical damage – when the stylus ‘skips’ or jumps from the groove. ESP Restore is the ideal choice for long stored record collections and for use on records of unknown provenance which have come into your collection.
500ml of VRC ESP is sufficient to 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.
