Anyone know what material is used to coat polished brass (to prevent
tarnishing) such as bathroom fixtures? I appears to be much tougher than
clear lacquer. Polyurethane, maybe? Any info will be appreciated.

I soaked the parts in lacquer thinner and removed the old finish with steel
wool then buffed on a cloth wheel. It didn't need much buffing as it was
already pretty much polished and just needed a touch up where the steel
wool had scratched it. Another cleaning with lacquer thinner to remove
the buffing compound and wax and it was ready for the new finish coat.
