Premium cerium oxide glass polishing powder and buffing compound, mix with water to create a slurry for fine edge polishing and removing light scratches in glass. Use with Delta Kits 25010 Polishing Head for windshield scratch removal.
Cerium Oxide buffing compound is the polish most common use is the polishing glass but is excellent for polishing rocks – agates, quartz, opal, obsidian, etc. Use for buffing out scratches in glass by making a slurry the consistency of milk. With your finger and a soft cloth, dip and rub out the scratch. For deeper scratches you need to use a super fine silicone carbide grit sandpaper or diamond hand pads in various grit sizes to work out the scratch and then polish with the cerium. It takes a lot of work but is possible to accomplish. This cerium is the red to dark orange and is a high quality, optical grade.
It is an excellent polish for rocks in a tumbler (1 oz (37.8 g) per pound of stone) or vibratory lap (slurry). Use on a hard cloth buffing wheel, leather, or #8 canvas. Mix with water to the consistency of milk. Paint on, polish your stones keeping a spray bottle handy to keep the surface damp.
Use with faceting machines, sanding belts, lap disks, polishing heads for Dremel tools. Leather or felt polishing tools are preferred, but cotton buffers will work well also.
