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.

Awesome!

I sanded the guitar after clear coat with 600 then 1200 (wetsand) and then buffed the body with the course and fine compound on an old cotton rag. These are awesome, and really help you get the gloss. I'm sure it would have came out better with a foam pad, and buying the medium. These are defiantly a keeper for whenever I want something shinier then satin.

You can get a great finish with this. Works great with the drill buffers. A large buffer slings it to the floor.

Currently My thing is to take 20+ year old guitars which I always wanted as a kid during the 80Æs (but never could afford) then rebuild and restore them to a dream like state. So I brought the entire set of Colortone Compounds to help me get there... I have found that traveling through the grits from 800 to 4000 paper (using a 1 inch by 2 inch pink pencil eraser as a sanding block) all I really need is the swirl remover to get a professional, super flat, mirrored glass finish on acrylic lacquer... Love this Swirl Remover.. An Excellent polishing compound, invaluable, and works perfectly from full finishing jobs to small re-finishing jobs. For the best results. I have found that itÆs better to apply these compounds with a series of foam rotary pads sold here at Stewmac. I run them about 550rpm in a drill press for full finishing jobs; or in a cordless drill set at low rpmÆs for smaller touch-up jobs. (remember to wash them out after use). But you can also apply the swirl remover with your towel covered pointinÆ finger for buffing out very small problem areas. Gotta Say.. I find everything I need to get the job done right here at Stewmac... Next To build me a dream guitar from scratch û Wish Me Luck.

I purchased the swirl remover polishing compound and it works very well to remove scratches and marks.I will be using it on my newly finished guitars.When I recieved it today I hand polished an acoustic guitar and it took out most of the small scratches very easily.

just another regular polish

I was unable to re create the same results as the other reviewers. Despite using the recommended technique,no improvement in luster or shine was achieved.

It's basically the same as the Virtuoso polish but more expensive and thinner.

Use this along with the buffing pads they offer to achieve a brilliant luster . Gives a great shine without needing a pro buffing outfit.

This is REALLY cool stuff. You can really polish your finish to a mirror shine with this and the Swirl remover is great for bringing back a nice shine to blunt old finishes.
