1st Stage Coarse Cutting Compounds

1st Stage Coarse Cutting Compounds

£5.29£13.26 incl VAT

Compound bars for metal finishing from first cut to final finish. Compounds available to suit all metals. At Moleroda Finishing Systems we supply a range of Lea Manufacturing polishing compound and also Menzerna compounds. All of these compounds are the coarse soaps and are used for the first stage of cutting and flattening metal prior to polishing.

Most of these compound will leave a flatter surface but still quite a dull finish, the idea is to remove marks, scratches, welds, pits and unwanted blemishes in the metals. Once you start polishing all of these marks will become more viable so this pre-polishing stage is the most important. All mops should be used with a Dry sisal mop for good stock removal. An impregnated sisal can also be used to increase cut or white mop for a softer application.
