How to remove scratches from glass and metal
Depending on the depth of the scratch start with 1200 wet and dry carborundum paper and rub with a little water until scratches are removed. Then use finer paper, e.g. 4000 followed by 3µm diamond paste or powder. Put the paste/ powder on fine, tightly woven cloth and rub until the glass/ metal becomes clear. If using powder moisten the cloth with water. Finish off with 1µm diamond paste/ powder. Always rinse when changing the medium. Smaller scratches can be polished with 6, 3, and 1µm diamond paste/ powder.
Polishing car windows:
To avoid flaring when driving into the light 1µm diamond paste/ powder is best. This will eliminate most of the very fine scratches and improve visibility a great deal. Larger scratches can be removed with larger diamond particles, but then several grades are required, say 10µm to 3µm and finish with 1µm. Don't jump grades, and remove ALL coarse particles before using the finer grade. When using the 1µm, first polish a small area then inspect that versus the unpolished adjacent area while having a light shining at a suitable angle.

These lapping discs are quite superior to "diamond sandpaper" or polishing with a slurry. The dull side of the disc holds the diamond particles. Well graded diamond particles are resin embedded to a uniform 0.076mm thickness and bonded to a polyester film backing. Diamond particles are embedded in the upper layer of the lapping film.
Few particles are released during the grinding and polishing process, and therefore very few coarse grains are transferred to a finer polish, thus avoiding scratches. Additionally, grinding particles are rarely embedded in the polished surface, which is a common problem when polishing soft materials like plastics or gold. Diamond lapping films are ideal for the preparation of cross sections for SEM/TEM prior to dispersive analysis. Ceramics, silicon wafers, metals and geological sections, particularly during the polishing stages, are better prepared with diamond lapping films. They are also excellent for polishing samples of differing hardness. Diamond Lapping Films are particularly suited to de-knobbing and cutting epoxy on optical fibre connectors as well as polishing and final polishing of the fibre for least-loss signal transmission. See our link on polishing of fibre optics.
Long service life overcomes the initial greater cost of lapping films versus conventional grinding and polishing.
Available in 203mm and 305mm discs with plain back or pressure sensitive adhesive back (PSA).

Priced to clear
Diamond grit blocks are made using high quality and durable materials. The diamond-impregnated material is attached to a firm sponge backing block that fits comfortably into your hand. The diamond surface covers one face of the sponge which measures: 85 x 55 x 30 mm.
These blocks are useful for grinding and polishing larger pieces that are too difficult to get onto a grinder, or for a quick clean up of minor imperfections. Diamond hand sanding blocks polish better and last longer than emery paper. They work well on alabaster, and are a must when abrading metals or hard stone such as onyx or marble.
Available in grit sizes from 170 to 800, the coarser grades (170) are suitable for grinding and the finer grade (800) is for pre-polishing.
We offer the best choice of disk‐mounted fine polishing cloths to handle the finest science / technology polishing needs. Notes:
* Available with Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Backing (PSA) only.
** Available with Plain Backing (P/B) only.
*** Available with either P/B or PSA No Hole (N/H).Center Safe Area: 64mm
A non‐woven textile cloth which is both oil and water resistant. Recommended for rough and intermediate polishing.
This flocked cloth, made by binding a rayon flock to a woven cotton backing, is the most popular in our line. It is excellent for final polishing when used in conjunction with diamond or alumina.
A finer version of Glenco Cloth especially designed for superior final polishing. For best results, use with diamond polishing compound.
Advanced technology for safe, superior cleaning
Microfibre is a superfine thread made from a blend of polyester and polyamide, 100 times finer than a human hair. The thread is split into wedge-shaped strands which are woven into soft cloth.
These cloths actually get under dirt and oily films and lift them away, leaving the surface brightly polished and lint-free.
Ideal for: microscopes, balances, computer monitors, TV screens, laptop computers, CDs & DVDs, camera lenses/filters, glass, plastics, metals, jewellery ... eye glasses, palmtop computers.
Because the cloth is washable and works without chemicals, it is safer for the environment and more economical.
Washing instruction: machine wash in warm water.
To use: blow away loose particles. Wipe surface to a shine with cloth.
Compact discs: use caution when cleaning CDs. Remove any loose particles, as above. Fold cloth and wipe disc outward from centre - across grooves.
