Restore a Cast Iron Kitchen Sink Glaze

Updated:2013-09-16 16:52:16
Cast iron is a heavy material that is strong and durable, but it doesn't hold up well to water. When water touches cast iron, it can cause rusting and other problems. To protect the cast iron against water damage, manufacturers add a layer of glaze to the surface. The glaze forms a tight
suitable for bathtubs and kitchen sinks. This glaze is sometimes referred to as enamelware and requires a little patience to restore.
Instructions as follows:
Firstly, scrape your fingernail across the damaged area of the glaze, pulling off any bits that are chipped, loose or hanging on the cast iron. Dab a small amount of dish soap on the damaged area, and add warm water to make suds. Rinse the damage with more warm water, and lightly pat the area with a towel.
Secondly, locate the porcelain putty or filling compound inside the porcelain repair kit. Place a small dab of the compound on a wood craft stick, and rub it across the damaged area of the glaze. Turn the stick sideways and wipe across the compound, pulling away any excess putty.
Thirdly, rub a damp paper towel across the surface of the porcelain putty, wiping off any excess that might cling to the cast iron glaze. Check the level of the putty, and add additional layers of putty until the compound sits even with the surrounding cast iron. Let the putty dry overnight.
Fourthly, use fine-grit sandpaper to buff away any excess compound from the cast iron. Focus on any compound that clings to the surrounding glaze. Add a small amount of water, and use the sandpaper to gently pry away the compound. Wipe a damp paper towel across the glaze, removing any dust from the sandpaper
