Polish information needed
« on: March 11, 2017, 09:09:45 PM »

Couple questions,   I have a container of polish labeled CCP Polish.  Has anyone heard of this and if so what is it used for,  it came with some other things and other polish I got in a box of things.
The other question is about some other Grit I got,   It is very course granules and labeled diamond 20000 grit,   I have never seen this before.   The pic is of the diamond grit.

Has anyone ever used this ?

From what I can find, CCP is a final polish for tumbling.  I'm guessing the other is also used in tumbling.  I don't do any tumbling, but other folks on the board probably do and you'll get a better answer from them.

Hard to tell in the picture but it looks like the media used for tumbling ammunition brass for reloading.
Maybe someone put a lapidary polish in it for doing a final dry polish in a vibrating tumbler?

If the labeling is correct, it could be walnut shell impregnated with the diamond.

Sure looks like these photos:  http://www.kramerindustriesonline.com/blasting-media/walnut-shell-grit-comparison.htm

Other tumbling media are shown here:  http://www.kramerindustriesonline.com/tumbling-media.htm
