Guide to Steel / S-Steel Metal Polishing
Depending on the state of the metal substrate you may need to start with an abrasive. If you need advice on the correct abrasives and/or tools for your polishing application please contact us via phone/email or by our site visit request form and we will recommend the best products for the job.
SAIC provides hand held, bench and floor mounted polishing machines to cover all polishing applications. Contact us for further details. Once you have reached the desired finish using your abrasives then we suggest moving on to using polishing mops and compounds.
We would first recommend using a carbrax cutting compound such as SAIC CGM or Cannings Carbrax SMG with a dry sisal mop. This will help cut back the abrasive marks and prepare you for the next step.
For the next stage we would recommend using a cut and colour compound such as SAIC Green BG with a White Stitch Mop. This will really clean up and brighten the substrate. Some people may choose to leave this stage as the final finish.
If you are looking for a very high quality / mirror finish then we would advise using a finishing compound such as SAIC Hi-Brite White or Cannings Hyfin with a soft Loosefold G Mop or WDR Mop.
This will bring the substrate up to an extremely high/bright quality finish.
