Headlight Polishing & Repair
When an object hits a glass headlight with reasonable force the damage is such that a hole through which moisture can penetrate is created. This is reason to fail your WOF/COF as the moisture will not only mist the reflector thus reducing light output, but can also alter the beam causing glare to other road users. Novus apply a headlight skin which not only seals the headlight, but also protects against further damage.
Plastic lenses can become cloudy and discoloured. This is owing to oxidation caused by U.V. light and also
reduces light output which can cause failure of WOF/COF. Novus can restore most lenses to a like new condition, either at our premises or at yours, for a fraction of the cost of a replacement set of headlights.
Novus first introduced the plastic polish range in 1973. Since then, the number of plastic products available off the shelf has grown tremendously. Yet, as widely used as plastic is, many people are still not sure how to care for their plastic items.
Novus has been the best kept secret for years, but the word has gotten out to millions of people that NOVUS can restore and clean your plastic/acrylic products. Novus polishes have saved manufacturers and consumers millions of dollars over our 30 years in business! By using a few simple techniques, along with Novus Plastic Clean & Shine No. 1, Novus Fine Scratch Remover No. 2 & Novus Heavy Scratch Remover No. 3, you can actually add life to plastic and keep it looking new. Best of all, you don’t have to be a pro to get professional results.
Try our polishes and you’ll see why manufacturers of plastic/acrylic products have used and recommended Novus polish for years.

If the damaged area is fairly large or badly damaged, a power buffer may be used with NOVUS No. 2 and No. 3. Use a clean cotton bonnet and operate the buffer at a low speed to avoid overheating the plastic, approximately 1,000 RPM. Each polish should be applied with a seperate, clean bonnet.
The type of polishing cloth you use will make a difference. The ideal cloth is nonabrasive, absorbent and lint free. To eliminate any chance of scratching, use only disposable cloths. Reusable cloths can retain abrasive particles, but you won’t know for sure until the damage is done. Use a soft cotton cloth (such as a diaper), avoid using polyester or rayon wipes which can scratch unprotected plastics.
Novus guarantee its repairs will not crack further and will pass WOF/COF inspections for as long as you own the vehicle. Should the repair extend or not pass a WOF/COF, simply contact your local Novus dealer who will assess the repair and discuss the options with you. Should the glass not be repairable, your local Novus branch will replace your windscreen and deduct the repair price from the total.
Novus guarantee its replacements against (a) water leaks resulting from replacement (b) manufacturing faults in the glass (c) faulty workmanship.
The Novus guarantee does not cover body defects, rust or faulty rubber seals and mouldings.
