Menzerna Dry Polishing Compound

Buffing out a finish to a mirror-like gloss with a buffing wheel was a messy process in the past. With the advent of these new dry polishing compounds this has changed. Menzerna sticks have been designed to work with the tougher high urethane content finishes as well as nitrocellulose lacquer. See our Seagrave Spray Lacquer (FL128/FL32) and Cardinal Spray Lacquer (FLC128/FLC32).

Start with a fresh cotton buffing wheel and "charge" the wheel with the compound by holding it against the wheel for 3 to 5 seconds and start to buff. The wheel may need periodic recharging throughout the buffing process. You MUST have a different wheel for each compound to get the best results.

We carry a wide range of polishes to suit your needs.
