Guide to Satene / Scratch Finishing Metal
There are various different products you can use to put a satene/scratch finish on to metal substrates..
If the metal is still in a poor state you will most likely need to start with an abrasive to remove the deepest scratches and imperfections (contact us for more advice on tooling and abrasives).

You can use a abrasive belt machines with non-woven (saiclon) belts, non-woven lap mops used on polishing spindles, non-woven spindle mounted flap wheels used on die grinders, non-woven rollers or finishing wheels for angle grinders. We provide an extensive selection of products to suit all requirements (contact us for an accurate recommendation).
For a fine satene finish when hand polishing we provide SAIC satene compound to be applied to our loosefold B or F polishing mops.
