The polishing paste for metalsThe polishing dough for metals in the cutlery.

The polishing paste for metals in the knife shop but in general the abrasive paste is a product that serves to create a surface wear (abrasion) of an object by rubbing, in order to modify the external properties of the same.

From this paste also derive polishes with abrasive (but more diluted) characteristics, which originally have functions similar to protective wax.

Polishing techniques

A distinction should be made between two completely different techniques which contribute to improving the reflection of a slightly rough surface:

  • the controlled abrasion of the surface, by means of very fine-grained and uniform abrasives (abrasive paste), which effectively reduces the extent of surface roughness (as in the case of steel and metals in general or oreficeria stones);
  • the use of waxy substances (usually with a high refractive index) that fill micro roughness and give the impression of a less rough surface (as in the case of waxes).

Using polishing paste for metals in the cutlery

This product is used in different fields and can also take on different denominations, from the dermatological field with the washing machine paste,from the mechanical field (metal objects) and aesthetic with chromopulors (chrome-care), to jewelry with polishing abrasive pastes, to the bodywork.

It is mainly used to remove small surface imperfections that have not affected the entire thickness of any surface treatment, and is also used for polishing.

Composition of polishing paste for metals

This paste uses a powder that, depending on its use, has a grain more or less thin and constant and that makes up for the most part, uses a soap that allows smoothness and optimal use, in addition depending on the applications can be composed even with a thinner.

Against directions

Such a product given its abrasive characteristics should not be used for parts that have a subtle surface treatment,as it can cause its removal or thinning by changing its characteristics.

Types of polishing pastes for knife makers:

Personally for metal the polishing paste for knife that I have recommended experienced makers of the CIC is this:

White Chrome Rouge,it costs about 10 euros but it is only orderable in the United States, so there is the problem of shipping and it is better to make a larger order to recoup the shipping costs.

The polishing paste for metals

It is a very valid abrasive paste and that I recommend.

Non-abrasive polishing cream Iosso

Bone Abrasive Paste

In addition to this type of abrasive paste you can also use the Iosso abrasive paste which is a non-abrasive polishing cream that cleans, polishes and protects.

Iosso’s polishing cream cleans, polishes, eliminates oxidation and stripes from all metals: silver, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, bronze, gold and chrome plating.

While finishing the blade with abrasive paper adding a little Iosso can help you.

It is used in many sectors not only in cutlery such as boating, fishing, on motorcycles, bicycles, handles, pots, silverware and on the plates of irons.

Also excellent for polishing and eliminating opacity and stripes from fiberglass, plastics, celluloid, enamelled surfaces, plexiglas, polycarbonate etc., on boats, bodywork and windshield of scooters and motorcycles, plastic headlights and visors of helmets, plexiglas furniture, mobile phones etc.

It does not line, does not corrode or affect, it returns the original shine preserving it over time.
