A wide range of polishing and finishing compounds are formulated for different surfaces and applications. Abrasive particles such as cerium oxide, fumed silica, diamond, aluminum oxide, glass spheres and silicon carbide are suspended into a resin, aqueous solution, grease, oil or wax to produce polishing compounds in liquid or paste form.

Mixer selection is based on a number of factors including viscosity profile, particle size of the abrasive solid components and required shear input.
