Paper Abstract

With simple changes, some standard polishing machines can be used to make possible a quantitative analysis of polishing efficiencies. By weighing stock removal of glass under controlled polishing conditions, it is possible to determine the instantaneous efficiency, and its variations as a function of time which is dependent on the nature of the polisher, the concentration and temperature of the slurry, the pressure and speed of the spindle. This test has been very useful for the development of a range of new polishing products differentiated according to the principal type of polishers. It is also employed to control the quality of the manufacture and to guide users in their choice of the best product for a specific application. Some practical examples are described.
