The descriptive word “greaseless” is applied to this type of polishing compound because it is made completely free of grease, oil or wax. The formulations are composed of abrasive grits blended into a mixture of glue and water, which serves as the adhesive binder.

When the solid tube of Satin-Glo® compound is applied to a revolving buffing wheel, frictional heat softens the compound, transferring a coating to the wheel face. This coating dries immediately, forming a flexible and resilient abrasive cutting surface that is ready for instant use. When the abrasive head is worn down, polishing action is renewed again by applying compound over the worn head. The work surface is left dry requiring no cleaning should a subsequent painting or plating operation follow.

Dated for your Protection: Greaseless Compounds should be rotated to use the oldest stock first. The manufactured date, plainly stamped on each carton, insures this protection.

No Cleaning Operation Required: Because Satin-Glo® Greaseless Compound is made completely free of any tallows, oils, or waxes, the buffed work is left clean and dry, and further cleaning operations are not required.

Satin-Glo® Compound is easily applied to loose or tight sewed buffs, hard felt or cloth polishing wheels and small bobs. This allows extreme flexibility for the operator when finishing articles that have flat or rounded surfaces as well as irregular, restricted and recessed areas.

Cotton Super Thick Buffs, type “FD-40”, are ideally suited to use with Satin-Glo® Greaseless Polishing Compounds.
