Sabre Aluminium Oxide Polishing Paste

Sabre Abrasive Paste is specially formulated containing Aluminium Oxide Abrasive and is available in 20g syringes. It is suitable for a wide range of lapping/polishing operations, and it is particularly effective when used for smoothing soft metals such as brass, aluminium and copper; it is also effective for smoothing small areas of glass prior to polishing. Sabre Pastes are also available based on both silicon carbide and boron carbide abrasives.

Simichrome Metal Polishing Paste

One of the finest all-metal paste polishes in the world! Simply rub on with a soft cloth and rub off to obtain a brilliant luster. Will not harm uncoated metal surfaces. Unlike chemical polishes, it will not remove a layer of the metal surface being cleaned. Recommended for use after diamond lapping compound. Removes tarnish, dirt and oils, and generally renews polished metal surfaces. Leaves a protective film, which retards oxidation but does not prevent tarnishing. Works well on virtually any ferrous or non-ferrous metal surface such as brass, copper, silver, gold, pewter, magnesium, bronze, chromium, stainless steel, platinum, aluminum and countless other similar uncoated metals. Do not use on painted or lacquered surfaces. Excellent for removing shallow scratches from most any plastic and is also used to charge dry polishing medias (such as Dri-Shine III, Walnut Shells, or crushed cob) for tumbling. Available in 50 or 250g
