ColorTone Polishing Compounds

About This Item

The final step for a beautiful finish.
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 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.

A great companion to the soft touch pads

high quality, good value

I had been using a non-guitar finish compound (Flitz) to do my polishing. This stuff from StewMac is WAY better. Buffs to a smooth, mirror-like shine. Of course, you expect quality products from StewMac, this stuff doesn't disappoint.

Simple with Fantastic Results

By

Verified Buyer


the medium and fine compounds worked great on buffing and polishing my custom made and painted 1990 RG550 Ibanez guitar.

Instructions where simple to follow and results where stellar. I can see my own reflection in the finish.

Works great.

I have been looking for a product for final buffing of varnish finishes for a while. Nothing worked until I tried the swirl remover. Bingo, works beautifully. Highly recommended.

Key to a factory finish

By

Verified Buyer


So yes you can use automotive grade buffing polishes and glazes in lieu of this stuff if you know what pick. If you don't and don't want to play trial and error with 10 coats of lacquer and 4 week cure times on the line, this stuff is great to get it right the first time, with no experience, out of the box.

These polishing compounds are very good. I've used them for years. However, they are expensive.
