DG Cream Tripoli Powder
A very fine natural powder for polishing which contains no metallic particles and is insoluble in water. Available in two grades - Double Ground Cream and Double Ground Rose.
These fine Tripoli powders are used to remove blemishes and minor imperfections on a multitude of finishes, including wood, metal, plastic and ceramics. During the rubbing process the grains of Tripoli powder become more rounded, resulting in an abrasive powder which begins to polish. DG Rose Tripoli will always have a greater, more aggressive cutting action than the softer DG Cream Tripoli.
DG Cream - Low cut more polish - For highly polished wood surfaces.
DG Rose - Medium cut less polish - For stainless steel, aluminium, Chrome and similar metals.
To use: Sprinkle some powder on the piece to be polished and use a cloth dipped in linseed oil (or similar), or dip the rag into the powder for a more precise application. Tripoli powder may also be mixed with wax and resins to make a buffing wax.
