New Polarshine 45 from Mirka

Mirka has launched Polarshine 45, a new water-based and silicone-free compound for polishing gelcoat and other hard surfaces.

The new polishing compound for the marine industry tackles hard surfaces such as gelcoat with both cutting power and high gloss finish.

Sales Director Leonardo Latini says the new compound has already been warmly received in Italy: “Our customers in Italy have tested Polarshine 45 extensively, with positive feedback for cutting power as well as gloss level. It was even found to increase the lifetime of the wool pad used.”

Both user and environmentally friendly, the compound is water-based for achieving sustainable and long-lasting results. With Polarshine 45, you can achieve an excellent level of final gloss on gelcoat surfaces, both newly sanded and older.

Latini adds: “Fewer sanding steps are needed in production, where it can remove even P600 level sanding scratches. When used on old gelcoat, Polarshine 45 removes really heavy oxidation and restores colour.”

Depending on the hue, the easy-to-clean compound can even be used as a one-step polishing solution, according to Latini. “In high-end marine production, customers won’t settle for less than a world-class finish. Polarshine 45 gets you there faster.”

The new polishing compound is yet another addition to Mirka’s surface finishing solution potfolio, which includes abrasives, sanders and dust extractors.
