What types of glass scratches can Delta Kits polishing compound remove?
Delta Kits Cerium Oxide and polishing head can be used effectively to remove light scratches from windshields, mirrors, residential plate glass windows, and other non-tempered glass.

The polishing head features a dense, wool-felt wheel mounted to an aluminum adapter plate. The wheel features a 1″ x 3″ with a 5/8” arbor and 1/4″ shank adapter so it attaches easily to a high-quality polisher or variable speed electric drill.
