Abrasiveness chart

Don't know if it's been posted here before (couldn't find anything with a search), so i thought I'd post a link to an Abrasiveness chart for compounds/polishes/glazes and pads that I found tonight.

Useful guide but can you tell me what the difference is between the (heavy,medium and light) abrasive compounds and a polish?
In terms of car products I used to think a polish was an abrasive.

What an excellent article, particularly for someone like me who is no longer a 'newbie' but still has big gaps in my knowledge!
