ColorTone Polishing Compounds

About This Item

The final step for a beautiful finish. Available in shop-size containers, or in 4-ounce bottles for smaller jobs.

A customer described it best: ColorTone® polishing compounds make the magic happen! Used by hand with a soft cloth or with foam rotary polishing pads, they transform a fine-sanded new finish into a dazzling high-gloss surface you can be proud of. ColorTone compounds remove fine sanding scratches on instrument finishes and plastic pickguards, with no silicone residue to hamper future refinishing.

If you're final-sanding a new finish with 600 to 800-grit papers, begin the polishing sequence with Coarse compound. If final sanding is done with 1200-grit, start with Medium compound. Fine compound follows Medium when a super-high gloss is desired.

Swirl Remover applied with a foam rotary pad removes buffing marks and extremely fine sanding scratches on fresh finishes. It can also be used by hand to bring out a higher lustre on new or aged finishes.

This is the 2nd container of the medium compound I have purchased. It works great for remving scratches and blending paint touch ups on my guitars. All of my guitars are used and frequently need some cosmetic repairs.

From a Bowl Turner

I'm a bowl turner and was looking for a way to get that glossy smooth as glass finish for some of my work. This product does a wonderful job. I used the foam pad on my drill press and moved the belt to the slowest set of sheaves.
