After use, you reapply it but it does not build up. It doesn't protect against dings of course but its perfect for metal protection especially table tops, tooling, guns, museum pieces, and most other surfaces. I use it on machinery items (especially clean shiny ones) and all my guns. Check it out.

corner, you can use it with a small hammer to gently ease some of the
metal back to where it came from. Then use a scraper until whatever you
have that is flat sits properly. This is a workshop expedient method
and isn't a substitute for other methods.
