Anyone have any experience with this stuff?
I was given a butt load of "granite" and it turned out to be "quartz"
(a buzz word for a manufactured stone in a matrix of something)
I have a bit of experience and the tools to work granite but I don't
know if it works on this stuff. I really do not want to clog my
diamond pads with plastic if that is an issue. Reading on the interweb
has been pretty discouraging so far.
The binder is acrylic; how much mineral content is bound by the same is a
mysyery as is their type...could be anything from calcite (soft) to quartz
(hard) or maybe even corundum (still harder). Try wet or dry paper.
I did hit a cut edge with an 800 grit diamond pad and it got smooth
but not shiny. Licking my finger and wiping it made it shine ... until
it dried. I am going to look into that polish. I heard about it
somewhere else too. It seems to be a special product and I hope I can
get some without having to buy a 55 gallon drum of it ;-)
You can, I have a couple of 8 oz. bottles out in my shop. Look for polishing
compound for plastic. It is very fine corundum (1000-10000 and more) in a
vehicle. You do NOT have to work up though sucessively finer grits to get a
shine as it will shine whatever is there, minute rough edges and all.
Go to a place that sells automotive finishes and get some 3M Finesse-it .
Use it with a terry buff on a soft pad , you can get a *VERY* nice polish
with this stuff . I used it on a motorcycle (urethane clear coat) , after
stepping 600/1000.1500/2000 grit wet-or-dry sandpaper . Finish looked like
you could fall in and drown .
