How to polish glass with cerium oxide?
In order to remove scratches from the surface of the glass, mix the cerium oxide with the water in a 1: 1 ratio. The dense paste obtained in this way should be applied to the scratched surface and using a drill and felt pad made of hard felt or felt with a flex pad and polish the damaged surface. It is important that the drill speed is not too high - preferably 500-600 revolutions per minute. At the same time, we check that the mixture is not too dry. During polishing, we can use a sprayer with water, which will moisturize the polished surface from time to time, we also moisten the felt disc with water. You can also use professional mechanical polishers for polishing.
To achieve the best effect, polish the surfaces evenly, making small circles. In addition, it is recommended to polish the area around the scratches. It is important that during polishing, do not stay for too long in one place, because it can lead to a hollow on the surface of the glass, and in the case of car windshield can lead to the effect of a lens.
The best effect is obtained when the scratch is not too deep and is imperceptible under the nail. Packing 100g of cerium oxide is enough to polish about 6 car windows.
