Liquid Compounds

Our Liquid Polishing Compounds, sometimes referred to as Polishing Pastes, cover the full range of polishing applications.  They are manufactured in our Buxton, UK facility, under a rigorous ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management regime.

From high metal removal to mirror polishing, from working on super hard alloys through to precious metals or softer, plastic composite materials, we formulate products for both general, multi-metal use and for highly specialised end user requirements.

The abrasives in our compounds are selected from calcined and fused aluminas, tripolis, emery, pumice, chalks and more, for the right combination of properties. 
Hard to soft, sharp to gentle, coarse to very, very fine - they are chosen to give the precise amount of “Cut and Colour”, stock removal and shine, for any given application.

These abrasives are combined with a blend of fats, waxes and oils, generally referred to as grease, in an oil-in-water emulsion.  These emulsions can then be applied using spray or coating systems.  The greases then bind the abrasive to the polishing wheel and provide essential lubrication to the polishing process.  These greases may be derived from natural materials of vegetable or animal origin, or synthetic products based on refined petrochemicals.  The blend of greases and abrasives are combined to produce a compound formulated and manufactured for the application, taking careful account of the polishing process, equipment, buffs, component material and configuration, end result required, and any additional customer or application specific requirements.

Liquids are produced in a range of viscosities, for different methods of application.  Pack sizes range from 5Kg to 1,000Kg and the type of packaging can be chosen to fully integrate with compound application systems for any automated or robotic polishing machines.

Specific formulations are produced for particular industries, such as none-animal derived greases for the medical industry.
