We Say

Polishing marring and fine scratches out of glass surfaces is a horribly slow process at the best of times, but using the right products and accessories for the job does make things a bit easier. The Flexipads Rayon Glass Polishing Disc is ideal in this respect, as it cuts really well and allows heavy downward pressure to be consistently applied during the polishing process. It also helps to minimise the amount of heat produced by friction, which is very important when polishing laminated glass.

Description

The Flexipads Rayon Glass Polishing Disc comprises a highly durable layer of compressed rayon fibres bonded to a heat resistant hook and loop backing material. Due to the nature of its construction, it offers superb long-lasting cutting power on glass surfaces and helps to minimise the amount of heat produced by friction. This makes it ideal for removing marring and fine scratches from such surfaces, particularly when it's used in conjunction with a good quality cerium-oxide based glass polish.

How To Use

General usage notes: (i) always select the least aggressive disc you think you will need to achieve the desired result, and step up one grade at a time if more cut is required (ii) always ensure that you centre each disc properly on the backing plate (this can take several attempts to get right, but is vital if the machine is to remain perfectly balanced during use); (iii) always use an appropriate sized disc for the backing plate you are using (the disc should always protrude past the edge of the backing plate, never the other way around); (iv) always prime a new disc by spreading a thin layer of product over it and running it stationary on the glass for 15 seconds at low speed; (v) always ensure that spent polish residue on the face of the disc is cleaned off regularly during use using either a compressed air gun or a PB Utility Brush (failure to follow this advice can lead to a significant reduction in cutting ability, so don't be lazy!); (vi) after use, soak each disc in a bucket of Lake Country Snappy Clean Boost solution for 15 minutes and then rinse under fresh running water (using your fingertips to massage out any remaining polish residue) and allow to dry naturally, and; (vii) while not in use, store in a dry, dust-free environment (lidded plastic storage boxes are ideal in this respect).
