Liquid polishing compound (liquid abrasive) is used as the final stage of the polishing process for paints and lacquers. They are suspensions of super-fine abrasive particles in a thick paste-like liquid, and are much finer than even the finest wet/dry abrasive paper. Liquid polishing compounds are required to develop a deep shine in paints and lacquers. It is important that they are used as part of a complete polishing process, and not in isolation. We produce and supply three grades, available individually and as part of a value set.
RF3 Fine grade liquid abrasive is for use after the surface has been wet sanded to 2000 grit.
RF5 Finer grade liquid polishing compound further enhances the gloss shine. It should be used after our RF3 fine grade liquid abrasive.
RF7 Finest (Burnishing Cream) grade liquid abrasive polish is the final stage in polishing. When used after RF5 it gives the final high gloss finish to a painted or lacquered surface.
Skipping a stage, or not properly wet sanding before starting with the RF3 liquid abrasive compound will give an uneven, scarred surface - there will be areas of high gloss, but these will be littered with prominent larger scratches.
Liquid polishing compounds should be applied in straight lines using a lint-free cloth.
