Cerium Oxide Polishing Compounds
Cerium Oxide is a rare combination of specifically refined earth minerals and produced for lapidary, the optical and the glass industry. In the glass industry, it is considered to be the most efficient glass polishing agent for precision optical polishing. Removes scratches, water marks and scuffs, lime scale, acid rain marks and much, much more . . .
- Can be used with ceramics and to polish glass and stones
- Polish pebbles off the beach, quartz, agate, opal, obsidian, etc.
- Average particle size is 1.8 microns
- Add water to the 100 grams of powder until a thin paste is formed
- New formula, giving it a white appearance. Finer grade giving a better finish that the traditional orange colour powder
Very easy to use:
- By hand - To remove fine scratches in watch glasses, make into a paste or slurry with water. Apply using a soft cloth or sponge, rub vigorously across the scratch until it is gone. Wipe clean and buff
- By mop - Using an rotary soft mop (preferably leather P1302M/M31481) which is attached to a polishing motor or pendant drill, smear on the paste; keep the speed slow and polish very slowly until the desired effect is obtained
- By barrelling unit - To use with your tumbling machine (code B35408/B35410), add 100 grams of powder to water until it forms a paste. Add this to a lapidary drum (B35410) for best results.
Tips to remember:
- Avoid overheating the glass
- Please note: if you can feel the scratch with your fingernail it is probably too deep to recover with cerium powder
Varying results can be achieved by using different combinations of shot shapes & material combined with varying concentrations of barrelling compounds
