Polishing compounds are abrasive compounds consisting of polishing powder mixed with waxes and fats to form a cake or bar. They are used in a variety of industries to smooth metals and gradually apply a clean and professional finish. To help manufacturers properly distinguish between polishing compounds, we’ve created a comprehensive guide that breaks down the different types of polishing compounds and their uses.
POLISHING COMPOUND CATEGORIES
Polishing compounds fall into three primary categories: Tripolis, are cutting compounds. In this instance, ‘cut’ refers to how quickly the compound cuts away metal. High cuts remove more than lower cuts. Tripoli compounds eliminate dull scratches and emery marks to deliver a smooth, although dull, surface. Intermediates, which cut away rough surfaces and provide a degree of luster. Finishing rouges are burnishing compounds used to deliver a high-quality polish. Because they have varying functions, polishing compounds come in many forms, with surfaces that range from highly coarse to super-fine. Depending on the application and how much smoothing needs to be done, you can use different compounds throughout the process to smooth away imperfections and achieve the desired results.

- This intermediate metal polishing compound is mainly used to finish stainless steel surfaces, which is why it is often referred to as the stainless-steel compound. It removes scratches and provides a mirror-like finish
- White Buffing Soap - compounds are a great finishing compound, particularly for harder metals like chrome and things that have been nickel plated. It will provide a light level of cutting edge to your buffing wheel giving those harder metals a brilliant shine when you are finished. Also known as a blizzard compound, it can be used to provide a final finish to harder metals, or lighter cutting action on softer ones
- Used primarily on hard metals and stainless steel, white polishing compounds have a finer composition that makes them ideal for the cutting and intermediate stages of the polishing process
- If you work with non-ferrous metals, plastics, or synthetic materials, the blue polishing compound can restore its original smoothness and gleam
