Polishing compounds are used for cutting, cleaning and polishing metal surfaces to a final high luster. Different metals and surface conditions require different types polishing compounds. Polishing compounds are generally broken down into three categories:
- First cut Polishing Compounds are for used for smoothing out rough surfaces and is generally moist
- Medium/Second Cut Polishing Compounds are used for smoothing out semi smooth surfaces, remove less surface material, prepare the surface for the final high luster and is a dryer compound.
- Final Polishing Compound, still removes some surface material, but is minimum. This is the last stage and necessary to produce a high luster.
It is a good practice to use different buffs for different metals and polishing compounds to avoid cross metal contamination and unwanted surface scratching during the final polishing stage.
